Fond out yesterday at a meeting at work , that I am getting a small bonus on my paycheck this week for a reward for being a great employee for them for almost 21 years! In the bank it goes..

Kristy ended up with sunstroke/heatstroke from all the Saturday yard work,, could not keep food down, headache,etc,, so today she had low enough iron that the blood bank refused her donation..

We met with garage door guy, got estimate, he is ordering the door and remotes for the other door, should hear from them in 2-3 weeks,, right after the contractor finishes with other job..
we ar eboth still very tired,, work today was a vacation compared to my "Days off" over the weekend!!

    Good Job, Lin! I'm so proud of you for getting that bonus. Every little bit helps! Way to go!

Sorry about kristy's heat/sun stroke. I hope se is feeling better today.
Maybe a hat will help protect her from the sun/heat?
Hugs

Yesterday, Saturday, I got my hairs cut, then home to get DD to go garage sale-ing for a couple hours,, did our walking there, found some treasures,, had lunch, went right to mom's house to mow and rake her three acres of lawn,, Kristy and I really got a cardio workout, as well as our 10,000 steps plus!!

The huge bales of grass/hay were mowed, then raked into piles, tehn picked up by hand with a rake onto a wooden cart teh size of a snowmobile trailer my dad bought for the yard.. every cart full had to be wheeled all the way to the back of the property, then back up to be filled again,,
after four hours of continuous fun like this, we went home,, exhausted,,
with barely enough strength to shower, we did, tehn crashed into a chair and we wanted to just go to bed, but it was only about six o'clock, so we forced ourselves to stay awake longer,, she outlasted me.. now it is 2:30 am and I am awake..
back to bed for me, a day of laundry and cleaning here awaits me after churh and groceries..shopping..

back to work tomorrow for a rest,, NOT!! Got a call from contractor to begin work after Memorial day weekend on doors,etc.. Tomorrow garage door guy wil lbid on that job..

This weekend is off to a wonderful beginning. Yesterday my ex hubby came to change teh blades on my tractor, check the oil,, then treated us to lunch,, We left town to research doors, hardware, jamb security packages at Lowes, stopped at Saly's to buy mom a shower cap, then off to Joanne Fabrics to buy silk clematis for Dad and Grandparents graves,, will put them out Monday,, then to T.J Maxx to get Lauren's Christmas gifts,, got to get them organized and wrapped to take up north in August.

We then went to dinner, then to Aldi's, which I was going to do today, but it is located next door to where we ate.

This morning is my haircut, then to moms to check house, get her mail, sort more junk out and maybe mow her lawn again.
Tomorrow I have a meeting at work in teh evening, so must get things done today.
Going to get a walk in before my hair appointment.. Got to get those 10,000 steps in!!

    LINDA, that was a great start to your weekend, way to go more often. I cannot imagine a day goes by that you do not get your 10,000 steps.
I hope the weekend is as good as yesterday and maybe better. HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon
