We Can Still Jump!

Would a cardboard belt be a waist of paper?

We woke up at 7:00 AM, and I realized Mary had a Zoom meeting scheduled in 15 minutes.  Mary needed some time to become her beautiful self, so I, quick like a bunny, created a background using her picture.  Here is what everyone saw at the Zoom meeting.

This image is what the meeting members saw!

This picture is what I saw while the meeting was underway!

What I saw, it would frighten small children and animals!!

She made the meeting after some computer issues.  We laughed and giggled the entire time.

I made us some coffee so we could get our hearts started.  Today will be busy as we have company for the next two weeks. Our daughter Colleen is coming to town to assist with the party and attend the burial at sea for dear Sue.

We ordered our stone for the fireplace, and it is starting to be delivered.  Mary selected a quartz rock with silver/gold highlights!  The stones will be arriving over the next three weeks, and the mason will begin work on or about the 12th!

We also got the good news that our security screen door will be installed on Wednesday!  This screen will enable us to get the afternoon breeze clear through the house without fear of someone coming through the screen!

We placed a call to Colleen to check up on her plans to come to visit us tomorrow.  Colleen was outside, so we talked to Mark, and Mary found a new way to hide her face.

Mary found a new way to hide her face until it heals!

Mary worked in the TV Room (Living Room), and I made a CVS/Albertson’s run!  So I am going down the aisle picking up things on the Alexa list viewable on the phone.  A couple of minutes later, I looked at the list, and I missed Mandarin Oranges.  That was odd, but I went back and got the oranges.  OK, all is well, and I am heading to the checkout, and the list now has cottage cheese on it.  How did I miss the cottage cheese?  I was just at the dairy area a few minutes ago; I go back and get it.

Now, on the way to checkout, and suddenly, apples appear on the list; am I going crazy? I had a good laugh! Then I looked more carefully. Apples, oranges, cottage cheese, and other little things were added to the list 30 seconds ago!   YES, Mary was working in the kitchen making lunch and adding stuff to Alexa, which showed up instantly on my list at the store!

Lunch was wonderful! The woman has a way with sandwiches!

I am such a lousy cook… after dinner, Mary doesn’t brush my teeth, She counts them. Mary knows I am no cook!  I’m no cook; when I want lemon taste pm something, I spray it with Pledge.

An amazing sandwich!

We worked all afternoon, and finally, at 8:00 PM, when the temperature got below 90 degrees, we hit the swim spa!  I set the BBQ on stun as I dipped my gorgeous naked body into the warm water!  Steaks tonight!

We killed off a half-bottle of wine, and as we got out of the water, we headed for the kitchen.  I got the steaks, and Mary brought the salad.  Dang, life is good!

Dinner is served.

While I was attempting to take a picture of my bride, she ensured her eyes were covered.  Scout could not figure it out!  Finally, he whispered to me in his own Australian Shepard dialect, “Dad, Mommy needs to have fur like me, and then the scrapes would not show!”

Silly humans!

Speaking of steak, it was terrific and cooked just right if I do not say so myself!  We had the last of the corn rings.  After dinner, we crashed as tomorrow is another busy day!

When I was grilling a steak earlier and the smell of the juices made my mouth water. It got me thinking, which is always dangerous. Do vegetarians have the same effect when mowing a lawn?

I did ask Mary, “What do you call a 100cm long steak?” Being the clever person she is, she replied, “A meater.”

Ready, set, go!

We did the dishes, called Colleen for a last-minute check, and then off to bed.  We didn’t even turn on the TV! Good night all; see you tomorrow!
