On Saturday, Aug. 28th, it was around 7:30 when we got up. Gibbs slept with us last night and with windows open, we were all quite comfortable. I left with the laundry before 8 and had no interruptions or new discoveries at the Mat. Before leaving Durham, I made a bank stop and a stop for water, and then stopped at a garage sale.
I was the first customer and left with a new, in the box, HP printer for $10. There was no bargaining required, they were selling their parent’s stuff and taking what they could get. 😊 Ours has been giving us grief for a couple of years, working sometimes, not others and it is very heavy to move around. It is up in the top cupboard making it very difficult to work with when it jams.
Anyway, this one is so lightweight, I figured for $10 it was worth a shot. I’ll let you know once the ink runs out on the old one. I hung the clothes back home and watched the clouds move in a couple of times. No rain, even with the occasional threat, and they dried nicely by 2. During the day, Bill worked away at the pump again and I took my wagon up the hill to pick up yesterday’s vines. They were dried from the heat so much easier to cram into the loads.
When Bill had the sprinkler working again, I was so hot that I actually stood right in its path. That felt great! Around 4:30, we all came inside and that was it for the day. No more work. We dozed a bit and both agreed on a simple supper after last night’s evening out. So, toasted tomato, cheese and lettuce sandwiches it was. Together we put them together and they hit the spot with a custard for dessert. It also made dishes simple too. 😉
The evening was spent watching movies and unless the rains come through the wee hours, we’ve had another dry day. Good thing I watered my planters, the flowers were getting pretty droopy. It got very hot and humid today, almost unbearable out there. However, we had another good day chocked up and we’re halfway through the weekend already.
Thank you for popping around.
