It’s Friday And I Am Unsupervised Again! Oh Dear!

A bright eye indicates curiosity; a black eye, too much.

We are up at 6:00 AM, getting ready to send Mary to work. And little old me is trying to get the networks working! Frustration! Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I prefer to laugh since there is less cleaning up to do afterward. Robin was still crashed at 7:00 AM from last night.

Robin and I had coffee on the patio while Mary got ready for work!  We showed Robin Scout’s new outfit for the upcoming party!

No kidding, he likes his costumes1

By 9:15 AM, I am unsupervised; this is something to worry about.  I headed out to do my errands, first stopping at GoodWill with about ten boxes of stuff.  Then to Home Depot, where I got a flat of Vinca Roseas to plant.  Back to Ace Hardware, where I picked up a second key for the Van and next door to Albertson’s for groceries for tonight’s meal.  Finally, I went to CVS to pick up some photos I had ordered. I did not return home until almost 1:00 PM.

While I was out, the security cameras went bonkers, so I checked, and sure enough, Scout was going bonkers also!

It was the pool guy, and he set off the cameras in the front, side, patio, and backyard!

His deep bark scares people to death!

Back home, I continued with chores, doing the wash and, more importantly, cooking dinner.  I did stuffed peppers this evening with a bit of help from Mary!

We had a great dinner on the patio and decided to crash at 7:00 PM and watch a movie.  We selected “An Unfinished Life.” An Unfinished Life is a 2005 American drama film directed by Lasse Hallström and based on the Mark Spragg novel of the same name. The film stars Robert Redford, Jennifer Lopez, and Morgan Freeman. It is the story of a gruff Wyoming rancher (Redford) who must reconcile his relationship with his struggling daughter-in-law (Lopez) and previously-unknown-to-him granddaughter after they show up unexpectedly at his ranch and ask to stay with him and his disabled best friend and neighbor (Freeman).

Mary’s face was still beaten up from the gall yesterday, so we put ice on her eye and stayed in!  One more movie and we were done for the evening.

About Paul

Just an old retired guy trying to finish out my last years on this planet. I lost my best friend and wife in early 2020. I was blessed again by reconnecting with Dr. Mary Côté, a long-time friend. Mary and I got married July 28th, 2021, and are enjoying life together and plan to spend the rest of our lives being a blessing to our friends and family.
