Pink Eye, Boat and Traffic

Sat. Aug 22 – #1 Son had his garage sale again but didn’t have many customers so closed it up early and packed the rest up and took it home.  I dried out the tent and tarp etc, did 2 loads of washing, vacuumed and picked blackberries.   It was hot and humid today.  

Sun. Aug 23 – i watched the church service on the internet and went on the parish zoom.  I roasted cherry tomatoes and made “zoodles”,  zucchini cut into noodles, fried with hamburger, onion, green peppers, the roasted tomatoes and grated cheese on top. It was good.  Win has pink eye, which is a symptom of Covid.  She booked a test for Monday morning.  

Mon. Aug 24- I did church books etc.  My manager called to see if I wanted to go back to work.  I said, not really.  He says I have 2 options.  I can take another voluntary leave until Dec 18 retirement date, or he is going to see if they will give me my six month bonus now and bump up the date.  I said either option works for me. He got back to me to say I should just take an extended leave, that way I still have my benefits.

Tues. Aug 25 – We,had a big storm last night and it felt cooler this morning so I made tomato sauce with tomatoes from our garden.  

Wed. Aug 26 –  I went to a meeting at church about reopening and then to an outdoor visit with Mom and Bro at the nursing home.  When I got back Hubby wanted me to help him work on the boat motor holding things up.  I don’t know what he was doing.  He tells me and explains and it just goes in one ear and out the other lol.  

Thurs. Aug 27 – Hubby and I took the tool he rented for the boat back then stopped off at #1 Sons for a short visit.  Hubby made a mistake fixing the boat and spent the day trying to figure out what to do about it.

Fri. Aug 28 – Hubby and I worked in the garden, weeding, picking, mowed the lawn.  Then #1 Son finally found somewhere to order the wood for his privacy screen about an hour and a half away and he wanted 

Hubby to pick it up for him in the truck.  I went too to help navigate.  There were 2 accidents on the bridge, one in each direction on the way there and traffic was all backed up and then another bad one on the way home.  Win and girls came for supper and we had fresh corn on the cob from the garden.

Sat, Sun, Mon, Aug 31 – We picked tomatoes, blackberries and green beans.  I made more tomato sauce, froze berries and corn.  We took Hubby’s truck in to be fixed.  I went to Wins after supper and the girls and I watched Hamilton.
