All of my fingers were injured in the 4th of July fireworks. My closest friends say that they can’t count on me anymore.
We beat the rooster up this morning! I headed to Casa Valencia to hang up the chandelier while Mary finished marking the items to be moved. I also went by the Salvation Army, but they are VERY choosey on what they will take. Good Will, on the other hand, will take almost anything!
After sizing up the chandelier task, I called for assistance. Bob Z. came over, and we hung the chandelier. It took two people, but it is up and solidly mounted to the ceiling. Bob is great to work with as we read each other’s minds. Bob asked if perhaps we should move it ourselves and save money. He thought he could do it in one trip!
Just as Bob and I headed to Casa Valencia, Diane showed up to help Mary through some of the packing activity. Having moral support is essential, especially after leaving home after a quarter of a century.
We discovered the downlight was burnt out, so we got replacement LED’s, and now the light is brighter yet. I am going to replace the lights with LED lights as soon as possible.
Bob departed from Casa Valencia to head home, and I continued to work for a bit. My feeling was Mary was hungry, so I stopped by Subway and brought her lunch at 4:00 PM. Mary said, “I’m so hungry I could eat a horse and chase the rider.”
The packers showed up around 2:00 PM and went to work. Magically all the pictures and things were wrapped and ready for the movers tomorrow at 7:30 AM.
Mary labeled everything, including Scout The Wonder Dog. The tag on my forehead said, “If misbehaving, put into broom closet!” It was hard to believe that two hours earlier, the place almost resembled a home. Mary was well organized and made the packer’s job easy.
We took Precious over to Jan’s house for a week’s visit since our garage will be a staging area for the next week or so. We had a glass of vino with Jan and then came to Mary’s and did a double back-flip into the hot tub. We laughed and giggled and then talked about tomorrow being the day we open our drawers and put our things together! (Pun intended!)
