Hey Kitty! Such good news, I knew you were wanting to move back "home"! And now it is going to happen. Things change and life goes on but I know it will be hard for you to leave your little "paradise". Hope you can find the perfect retirement home!
I have caught up on the postings. I usually jump in here every few weeks and read to see how everyone's life is going and don't always post unless I feel the urge...lol. Covid up here is slowly abating however, we are slowly entering a phase where as you know, people were protesting and gathering so we will see what the next 2 weeks bring. Nice to finally get a hair cut and next week is nails...beauty stuff you know!
And Susan...would chalk paint not have adherred? I redid my whole bedroom suite a few years ago with off white chalk paint (no sanding required on old shiny dark oak) then stressed it with sandpaper and I love it. Will look for a pic!
Well, nothing really to mention except we still have pretty cool weather and lots of rain. Helps the grass but need the sun to make it grow.
Well, got the pics, one sideways on right side up!! lol
Good to hear from you.....still packing all goes well...will be hard to say goodbye to our friends and neighbors....
Pine needles in your eye sound quite painful. Be careful that doesn't scratch your cornea. Only given two eyes...so we need to be protective.
Enjoyed a nice day with both daughters and granddaughter. Lunch on a patio and some shopping. We don't get together that often, so it made me happy.
Knock out roses in full bloom.
Happy Father's Day. I'm sure your "tribe" will do something for you!
Dear Kitty ~
Sounds as if you are indeed "ahead of the packing game". Will it be hard for you to leave?
I was thinking the other day that it has been twelve years ago this month when school ended....that we moved up here. Doesn't seem possible really. For some reason, this now seems like home......rather than North Canton!
Looking at my beautiful knock out roses in full bloom, evening primrose, feverfew,hostas ~ I love June.
Enjoy the week-end. Happy Father's Day to Brian ~ Susan
Nice to hear from you. Thank you for posting the pictures. Beautiful job. I have looked into chalk paint but originally wanted to paint the cupboard a terra cotta. It' been so exhausting and time consuming that I just want it done now. Have decided to go with a weathered wash (grey look) over the knotty pine. Rather vintage looking. The stain must be ordered from either Lowes or Home Depot and that will take another week. On we go.
Yes, we are slowly reentering the world. Some lunches with friends, but mostly all on patios outside. Masks as we go to the stores ~ although many do not wear them. Unfortunately, we are in a category at risk due to age. So, we will follow the rules.
Stay safe. ((hugs)) Susan
Morning Susan. Eye is healing, finally. Getting backhoe loader cleaned and lubed, had trouble with my grease gun but straightened it out. The Winter chains hit a hydraulic coupler and uncoupled it so took me a little while to find why the backhoe wasn't working. Then we had a thunder storm so I will start working on Friday.
We finally had another pizza night with our daughter and grands. I eat vegetables, the pizza throws my glucose readings off for 48 to 72 hours. The kids enjoyed getting into the pool for the first time this season.
We have a chance of rain every day in the forecast but lots of sun too.
Have a great day.
Morning Kitty. I was watching a tv show where couples had to find a house in a new state and close the deal within 3 days, long weekend. Thinking of you guys moving. At least you two won' t have to rush like that. Still a lot to take on.
Have a great day.
takes a long time to decide what to take or not also......and getting all the annual stuff done.... eyes teeth etc.....now we will have to find all new Dr. up there....at least we will have good weather to move and find a house etc.....but we do have a place to stay while doing that...
Morning Kitty. I'm not bothering with eyes and teeth this year. It's been made into a mess. I do have to find a barber sometime though. My barber retired and moved to Arizona after the two previous had died. Then I started going to the mall but don't know when they will reopen.
I think we will probably live in our house for the duration. We moved here in 1980, raised our kids here. Only one bathroom with the four of us but it worked.
State Farm raised my premiums quite a bit this year so now I probably have to start shopping for insurance, had their insurance for 47 years.
Have a great day.
Hi Ernie ~
Happy to hear your eye is healing. Bent down quickly yesterday and seemed to have a few floaters most of the afternoon. I've had them before ~ quite annoying. They seem to be gone today..
Hope you had a nice Father's Day ~ and were able to do something with your family and grands. We met Jim's son and family at the Cleveland Yacht Club...... a bit hoity toity for my blood but his son and wife belong and they were doing the treating. .they didn't have his son's reservation so we were escorted to an off shoot of the patio. Very humid. Service quite slow (over one hour waiting for breakfast) and a hot and humid day. But, the scenery along the mouth of the river into the Lake was lovely and it gives you a chance to see how the "other side appears to spend their money". Haha. Wonder what those boats cost?
Decided we would try to kiyak again this summer. It's fun to go just along the river shore....Had a heck of a time getting "out" the last time ~ lol.
Badly needed gentle rain here and that makes me happy. Finishing up the cupboard. Ordered a weather wash (gray stain) to come from Home Depot on Wednesday.
Take care. Enjoy the cooler and wetter weather... Susan
