Restful Sunday

Today has seemed to just fly by, but it really doesn't seem like I got anything accomplished. Dan and I were up by 7:30 and had coffee out by the pool. Then we got ready and were at church for the 9:00 service - so we were back home by 10:15 to 10:30.

After changing clothes I started the laundry - had about five loads to do counting the linen on our bed and towels (including the towels out by the pool). That has been accomplished - washed, dried, folded/hung on hangers, and put away.

Justin. our son-in-law, stopped by for a few minutes just as we were eating lunch. We had decided to clean out the refrigerator - so we were just eating leftovers. I offered him some, but I really don't think he is much of a "left-over" type person, and he declined. Anyway, we talked for a little while and then he was off to Walgreens. We finished up eating and then I cleaned up the kitchen.

Dan spent some time in the pool and Mom came by on her way out of town - still having problems figuring out how to use her cell phone that we got her. That is a long story, but she wasn't happy with the service she was getting from the local carrier and thought her bill was too much - so, Dan and I added her to our "family" plan. I just hope I don't have to up our minutes and I'll really have to keep an eye on the minute usage - since she really just doesn't understand how all this works. Anyway, after I got her latest issue straightened out and she left for a few days at her friends house up in Lakeland - I went out and joined Dan in the pool for a little while.

Then it was off to the grocery store for a couple of things that we forgot yesterday - I REALLY have to get back into the habit of a list. I really want to get back to making menu's and then doing the list from the menu's. Hopefully, that will be something that I will be doing in the very near future (it does help with the grocery bill).

That's been the extent of today's activities. As you can tell, it hasn't been a very productive day. I think that we are going to go back up to IKEA next week. We made some changes in the design of the fireplace surround - actually to the shelves beside the fireplace - we have decided that we are not going to have a closed cabinet there - we are just going to have open shelving (which is what I thought we were going to do to begin with, but what do I know?). Anyway, we are going to take the cabinet back and get our money back. We will probably spend it on other things, but anyway we are taking the cabinet back. We might go to the IKEA store in Tampa instead of Orlando - we shall see.

Well, I have bored you enough for today - I hope that you have had a restful day! Take care and I'll talk to you later!


  1. Wow! You've gotten so far while I've been busy with all these family members. I'm still amazed at how you and Dan can "see things through." I have to look at House Beautiful to set a holiday table!! I sure hope this posts. I don't know what's up but I have trouble all the time lately. Stay cool!

  2. Oh, I'm sure you do so much more than you give yourself credit for - I've seen the pictures you post of all the things you've done for the family get togethers - amazing! I'll be glad when we can post pictures after EVERYTHING is finished! Take care and travel safe!


Rainy, Dreary Days
