We had some Pumpkin Pie with Cool Whip on it for dessert. Scott took some pie and what was left of the casserole with him to have later.

While we were sitting there April saw a sharp screw sticking up out of one of the deck boards. When I turned the boards over last year some of the screws broke off and this was one of them. It was sticking up about 1/4″. I got a hammer and smoothed it out. We don’t want anyone stepping on that with bare feet! ?

We drove the truck to his place where he and I unloaded the firewood in his yard for him to organize later. April stayed in the truck and studied more her Sunday School materials.

I had ordered a “grab” bar to go on the partition beside the two steps from the Den to the Kitchen where Pat fell last year. It came yesterday so I installed it when we got back from Scott’s place.

She has had more than one fall in the area of those steps, this will help, maybe. Scott has been wanting us to have this for a few years.

We took a nap from 5:00 to 6:00. When we got up for our nap we got our Sunday School materials organized for teaching today. I made some slides she wanted and we put notes on our teaching plans of when to use them.

We watched TV until bedtime.
