Declutter

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

Yesterday, hubby decided to get rid of a few more things before our actual move in December. I decided to empty out some file cabinets. I cleaned old files from two cabinets. He was nice enough to tear off our names/address and to shred those. Then I went through files looking for some info I need for the accountant to collect money that someone owes us. I did find it and have to get it together for her. I also polished furniture, Larry vacuumed, I mopped the ceramic floors and cleaned 2 bathrooms. Also had done my walk early a.m. 4.10 miles and worked in garden for a little while. I was a busy person; no wonder I was so tired last night. Had a really good night sleep, but I am very fortunate because I always sleep good. Have a great day.

    I love to de-clutter. That leaves me more room for new things. But I never seem to get around to buying them. LOL

Birthday Party

Sunday, August 08, 2010

Last evening we went to a neighbor's 30th BD party. The husband is a chef and you can imagine the food he prepared. He had at least 8 appetizers, chicken, steak, coconut shrimp, rice, and seafood pasta, chocolate cake/ice cream. Also drink of the day was margaritas and strawbery margaritas. I only drank water. I was really good. I ate before I left so I would not gobble down the BD food. While there, I had just a few of the fresh veggies and the smallest piece of cake I could cut (a sliver) My husband always tells everyone that when I cut a piece of cake, you can see through it. BUT that way I can have a taste and not be deprived. I am proud of me.

Neighbor spending night

Friday, August 06, 2010

My neighbor is spending the night with us. Her husband is at a baseball game with a bus load of people from our neighborhood and she wasn't feeling well so she didn't go. It turns out the game is a double header (last night rained out) and he won't be home until probably 2:00 a.m. by the time they leave the game and get here. She has a vertigo problem and shouldn't stay by herself so she is here with us. She has already turned in and I am right behind her. I make sour dough bread from a starter every 7-10 days and it has to be started at night to be ready for dinner next day. As soon as I get that started I am turning in also....

    What a nice thing to do letting your neighbor stay with you! The sour dough bread sounds delicious. I do not think that I could resist warm bread out of the oven. You must have a lot of will power! Sal

REally bad storms in No. VA

Thursday, August 05, 2010

I just went on FB and looked at photos in Alexandria, VA where my mom lives although she is in a different section of the city. There are trees on apartment buildings, on many cars, on houses. The mayor of Alexandria says not even Hurricane Isabell did that much damage there. The EMS personnel took hundreds of dollars worth of food to the emergency personnel trying to clean things up. I didn't hear if anyone was hurt. I can't believe what I saw in those photos. That is my hometown and I was there for more than forty years.

    That is scary.  We get lots of severe storms here every year. Google Hallam, NE. and you will see that it was flattened and that was less than 10 miles from us and we barely caught a breeze.

Storms

Thursday, August 05, 2010

I got a call from my mom today in VA and she said there were terrible storms there with lots of trees down and one on someone's house. We weren't home when she called but shortly after we got here (we are in NC) we went out to sit on the front porch. I was talking to my daughter who is also in VA and she said the same thing Mom did, except she told me a big portion of No. VA was without power. All of a sudden, I saw the skies here getting really dark and it started to thunder and lot of lightning. I got off of the phone because the last time I talked during a storm, all of my portable phones got zapped and I had to buy a new set. The storm lasted about 1/2 hour and I hurried in to do my SP. I have been really busy today and hadn't had time to do it. emoticon

    Wow I can't imagine that. The Washington DC area has really had some wacky weather this past year. I have a friend who lives in Reston Va. She and I both grow up just outside of the DC line in Forest Heights and Oxon Hill Md. Isn't is a small world. Sal

    Oh my goodness, did you talk to Mom. I think it is too late to call her tonight, but I am sure she would have called if everything wasn't ok. I hope she has power because she won't use a candle. We still are having some slight thunder, but don't see any lightning. Hope it is over. Love you, Mom

    Glad the storms are over. Fortunately we have power but getting home was really tricky with standing water on the highways and trees down and lights out on the back roads.

Alexandria's Mayor has declared a state of emergency for the city. He said he's never seen damage this extensive, even from Isabel. (He must not have been in the city during Agnes!) A huge section of the city is without power. The worst damage was in Fairlington and Delray. The WTOP reporter said that there are some many trees down that the roads look like forests. We got it bad in Fairfax and at home too, but apparently not what they got.
