The first order of the day was to do my morning stretching on my yoga mat and then head to senior hour at my grocery store.
I had to toss about $50 worth of food that had ruined during the power outage. Hurt me to think of all that food going to waste. But nothing could be done about it.
When I got to the grocery store I saw they were in the same shape. There was lots of emptiness because they too had to throw away ruined food yesterday.
I know their losses cost a whole lot more than mine did.
Anyway, I got groceries and headed down the road for gas. I like to get my errands done all at once so as not to waste gas or go out around people. There is a Kwik Trip where I sometimes get gas right down the road from my grocery store.
Now we seem to be in the midst of another storm. Please, please don’t knock my power out again. I’m crossing my fingers.
Look at the size of the cucumber I brought in the other day. It’s the biggest one yet.
Yesterday was very tiring. The worry of keeping Charlie from getting too hot. Worrying about Ivy here alone without air. When I got home she was in the front window staring at me through the screen.
Today I hope is just a calm relaxing day without any drama.
While at the flip house yesterday I did get to watch Kendra patch and fix dry wall.
The house is made of rock. So every time she goes to chip at the wall or doorway some of it crumbles off.
When I left she was trying to decide if it would be less costly to take all the trim around the doors and windows down and replace them. Or sand what is there.
She’s sure there’s something bad in the paint that’s on them because it gives her a migraine to sand them. Thank goodness she has that heavy duty mask contraption.
She has to pay the bank I think a thousand a month while she works on the house, so she tries to get it finished within 3-4 months if possible.
She had trouble ordering appliances due to the pandemic. She won’t have appliances for a couple of months.
She already has her chandelier. Isn’t it pretty? This is on the island at the house where she lives.
I love the black and white floor she chose for the existing bathroom.
I don’t know how she handles all that stress. Balancing a thousand here, a thousand there. All the time trying to make the house beautiful while at the same time keeping an eye on a profit for herself.
I sat and held Charlie and looked around me at the house in its current state. Just an old house that needs a lot of work.
I could not see her vision. But she sees it and in a few months time I will look at it in wonder I’m sure. Because she always comes up with a winner of a renovation.
