What a busy time - and it is not really summer yet!!
Yesterday my daughter came by the church office where I work and we went to Starbucks - right next door - just too close!! She got her usual (she has lost about 30 pounds in the last 6 months so she can) and I got the house blend. I really do not like all those "gooey sweet drinks"!
After work, ran a couple of errands and then came home. After dinner, I spent about an hour planting more plants. Replace a couple of geraniums in front that I got too early. And planted petunias in back - purple, pink, red and white. Also potted a couple of others that I do not know what they are - but will look nice on the patio.
Monday, our next door neighbor left about 8 a.m. to go to the club - she returned about 11 a.m. to find her apartment flooded with about 2 inches of water - her hot water had busted out on the bottom. In order to reach the pipes under the building to make repairs, they had to go down thru the floor in our coat closet. That meant that I had to take everything out - really not a problem.
However, they have now put in an emergency cutoff valve just under the floor in there - so cannot put back the metal cabinet I had in there. Our apartment is very small - very little storage. And, I had my cookware that I do not use often in there. No room in the kitchen so am now trying to figure out where to put them. They had eliminated some of the kitchen cabinet space when they put in the dishwasher. Am thinking I would rather have the space!!
Right now everything is in the living room - some on the card table that I put up.
But, I did get some exercise moving it all out - and now will get more when I figure out where to put it all. Some may just go in a garage sale!!
It is cool again this morning and we may have more rain today. We have been getting more than usual this spring.
