Scott let us know he wasn’t feeling well and wouldn’t be coming for lunch and to load any wood. ☹️ So, I loaded 3 wheelbarrows of wood in the truck to deliver to him today.

We spent some time in the swing after lunch and I could see dead limbs hanging down beneath the Japanese Maple bush, so when we were through swinging I got the hedge clippers to cut them off. After cutting several of them I realized some of the limbs were too big for the hedge trimmers so I got the limb loppers and cut some of the bigger ones. Yep, there were some even too big for the loppers and I had to get the chain saw. What I thought was going to be a few minutes turned into about an hour of crawling around on my knees and moving about the bush to get rid of the dead stuff. By the time I got the limbs picked up and in a can and my tools put away I was needing a nap. ?

We did take a nap and then I got out the floor cleaner and cleaned spots and dirt on the Den floor and Kitchen floor. Its amazing how quick it gets dirty.

We watched TV and were on our computers some during the evening.

April spent a lot of time in the kitchen preparing the casserole and cornbread, it was delicious.

A kind neighbor left a bag of cherries in the space between our door and storm door.

It was a fairly productive day.


We are planning to have a late lunch with Scott this afternoon. The casserole was to feed us and him yesterday so he will get some today. Then we will deliver the wood to his place.

We need to get our Sunday School teaching plan together sometime today.

Not sure what else is on the agenda.


It is currently 64º and mostly sunny, high of 78º and pleasant for today.

That’s it for August 17, keep in touch.
