Today Is A Good Day To Have A Good Day

United States
April 8, 2021 9:52am CST
Happy Thursday Everyone! it's a bright sunny day here today and it's supposed to get much warmer by afternoon. If that happens I might even be able to sit outside for awhile. Started the day by stripping my bed and the sheets are in the wash. I know we've had this conversation before and how many of us love the smell of clean sheets. My son and his family are coming on Saturday for a quick visit. We'll do pizza for lunch and then they'll be on their way home. My daughter in law is going in for surgery on her shoulder on Tuesday so they have things to do to prepare for her hospital stay and her recovery when she comes home. Food shopping is tops on their list so the boys can fend for themselves. At least my grandsons are pretty self sufficient ( ages 15 and 12 ) and my son is quite able to cook, clean and take care of everything. While he's here I'm hoping we can make a plan for him to do my deck. A few boards need replacing and then it has to be stained. I know he won't be able to do it until his wife is recovered and he can finish up the big job he's working on. He's always so busy that I hate to ask but I'd rather wait and have him do it than try to find someone locally who can. Besides my son is cheaper Since the weather has been so nice I'm already thinking of all the time I want to spend outside. At the end of the fall season last year the landscapers who take care of our bushes hacked one of my bushes to stubs. So far it still doesn't look like it has any life left in it but I"m hoping it comes back to life. If not then I have to see if the bush will be replaced through our HOA or if I have to replace it myself. We also got a small power washer last summer that worked really well for cleaning the sidewalk and the front porch. Once it gets warmer that will be on our list before we start using the porch to sit outside. As for today....not much going on. I finished my coffee and breakfast and now it's time to get going. Hope everyone has a good day today

I went out and started to prune the too much grown bushes, the two rosemary, the sage, some of the hydrangea buds that suffered when it snowed the past March 19. I just took a shower and I am relaxing before thinking to make dinner.

@LadyDuck I plan to do a bit of yard work this afternoon too. I’m just waiting on the sun to dry up the rain.

I'm enjoying all this nice weather and I think it's safe to say we're past the point of getting snow (hope I didn't jinx it). I figured you're busy since you haven't been around much. Hope it's all good things

@DocAndersen I agree but since I'm retired and a year of being stuck in the house due to the pandemic I'm looking forward to being a little bit busy.

Wishing your daughter in law a speedy recovery. Your Son would be much more dependable & trustworthy too. Hope your shrub grows back. My day was good, finished all I needed, got everything but ice cream sandwich on sale, sold out.

Thanks for the best wishes for my daughter in law. Yes, my son is very dependable and trustworthy. It's hard sometimes to find a reliable person to do small jobs. Sorry to hear about your ice cream being sold out. That's disappointing. I love ice cream

I love the convenience of having groceries delivered. Even after all the restrictions are removed I think I'll continue with delivery. Saves so much time and energy

I hope the bush grows back too otherwise I'll have to think about a replacement. It wouldn't look good with only sticks popping up out of the ground.

Its a sunny and warm day here today. We are past the cool part of spring it seems. Your grandsons could look into making themselves some really cool wraps or huge sandwiches, that would fill them yet give their parents the peace of mind that they aren't going to be on the stove.

wraps and sandwiches are always a good idea and I'll mention it to them when they visit. I'm sure my daughter in law is going to be spending the next few days cooking and freezing meals for their dinners. I don't know how long her recovery will be but I'm sure she won't be able to do much when she comes home and will have to rest her shoulder.

Its good that our kids are busy but and I hate bothering my son. But he said he would do it but it's just a matter of fitting it into his busy work schedule. I'm just hoping I can get an extension from the HOA if I need too
