The day was … scattered. I did write a poem, however, this morning. Inspired by this week’s photo prompt at WP’s Daily Post pages. I still have to wash the silverware, but all else is taken care of. I recently washed and dried five loads of laundry. Have to wash some underwear, tomorrow, and clean the kitchen enough to do some more cooking.
I finished off the chicken breast (this morning at breakfast, along with broccoli.) Or, was it for lunch? Anyway, the other meal that I cooked was scrambled eggs with pizza cheese, grape tomatoes, and a sliced andouille sausage.
We went out for supper, this evening, and then on to Home Depot to see if they have any cedar siding, and also looked at window blinds. While we will need some for the woodworking shop, we also have to buy for the kitchen windows, now that we have replaced the old windows. I’ve got a king-size sheet paper-clipped to cover the double window over the table, and I’ve still got the old one, which has been over the single window (over the kitchen sink) since before Al bought the house, which was in the 1970s.
For supper, we had 8-oz. sirloin steaks, which neither of us could finish. I also ate half of the gluten-free English muffin, half of the side dish of broccoli, and maybe a quarter of the buttered French fries. Water, no ice, for my beverage. But Al drank two glasses of strawberry-flavored lemonade.
On Tuesday, Al took a load of unwanted items to the city dump, including a box from my room, which included the clothing that I brought home from the nursing home after Mother died, but for the acrylic sweater, which was mine anyway, and a fancy embroidered sweatshirt that Mother turned into a light jacket for herself. After losing all of this weight, I fit into the sweatshirt jacket. It will be nice for around the house when I don’t want to be encumbered with a scarf shawl. The disposal included old software disks and packaging and miscellaneous items from my bookshelves. Cleared out quite a bit. (Maybe 5% of what has to go.)
Al got rid of the metal pipe that he dug out of the back yard (used to hold our weather-service satellite dish) and the concrete base, which came out in many pieces. What fun!
It is now 45 minutes after I was supposed to be in bed, but I need my last snack of the day. I think, either cottage cheese or plain yogurt with half a cup of unsweetened fruit. I have blueberries, strawberries, and sliced peaches in the freezer.
I still have to get poster frames for the photograph montages that I got from the funeral home. The ones they made for the memorial services.
