Something Good- Day 241-244

Friday we went to our friends’ house for a while. We were able to talk for a while and play with their pets.

We went to the zoo on Saturday. The kids loved it, and we all had fun. Afterwards, I helped watch my nieces so that my sister could go on a date with her husband. We had pizza and played games.

We went to church on Sunday for a special meeting. Afterwards, we were able to pick vegetables from our friends’ garden.

Today was a good day at work. We had dinner and played games with my sister’s family when I came home. Then we went grocery shopping to plan dinners this week.

I got pizza for dinner on Tuesday. It has been hot lately, so no one has wanted to cook. But I got a good deal on pizza, and we even had leftovers.

I gave a tour of my basement to a young couple on Wednesday. They are getting married in a few months and decided to sign a lease agreement with me! I do not mind doing Airbnb since we make pretty good money from it, but I definitely prefer the consistency of renters.

I went over to my friend’s house yesterday for a visit. We talked and played with her little boy. I always enjoy our visits.

Today we had a movie night and watched the new Dora movie. It was a fun movie and good to relax with the family after an exhausting week at work.

Also, PSA the coin shortage is real. If you have any excess coin, please consider taking it to your bank. We ran out of coin at my branch this week and have had to turn away all our business customers. We are giving the coin away as fast as we get it, and we are not getting our weekly shipments to restock our supply. Thank you in advance from banks everywhere!

Friday was a fairly calm day at work, which was unusual for a Friday. I was glad to get out on time though and headed home for a barbecue. After that we played Sardines and then went star gazing. It was a fun day overall.

Yesterday we cleaned and organized the house. We set up a bunk bed in the spare bedroom and did a lot of laundry. We were grateful that our Airbnb renters came late at night, so we had enough time to get a couple extra loads finished.

It has been a while since I posted. Friday we fixed up my lawn. We pulled weeds and mowed and switched out a sprinkler. Then we went to a friend’s house for cake and fireworks.

We left early Saturday morning to go to my brother’s house. We got there in time for lunch and were able to spend time with the kids. We went to bed late after a busy day with the family.

Sunday we had a video call with my sister’s family and then did a mini church meeting. We headed home after dinner and then went straight to bed.

Work was exhausting today, but we went to the grocery store afterwards. My sister committed to making healthier meal choices, so we stocked up on fruits and vegetables. Then we had sandwiches and wraps fpr dinner.

Overall, it has been a busy but good week.

I neglected to post last night because I was playing a video game where I had to get so many points within 36 hours to get a new character. I gave up video games a few years ago because I get addicted easily and waste most of my time on them. I downloaded this game to my old phone because I wanted to give it to my nephew to play next time I see him. Anyway, I did unlock the new character today. I also stopped playing long enough to take my sister for a driving lesson, reprogram a garage door opener, and pull some weeds. I love video games, but I know how important it is to have balance in life. I am glad that has gotten somewhat easier over the years, but I know I should still try to avoid video games most of the time.

We visited a friend in Montana yesterday. It took a couple hours of driving to get there, but it was a nice drive through green mountains with lots of trees. It was nice to spend time with her again and have fun. Afterwards, we went to another friend’s house and had pizza.

Today we went outside and planted our tomato plant. I really hope it survives because our garden died last year, so we started much later this year in hopes that the plants will do better. We had a friend give us some flowers to pot as well, which are doing good so far.

I have been so exhausted lately that I have not been able to write these posts before falling asleep. I was rushing to work on Thursday and did not get a chance to eat breakfast in the morning. I asked one of my coworkers if she would be willing to pick up something for me since I was donating plasma that day and needed to eat something. I would not normally ask but I was grateful she was able to do that for me. I offered to pay her back, but she said not to worry about it.

We went to a friend’s house after work on Friday and watched a movie while working on a puzzle. Then, we talked for a bit before heading home.

Today, we had lunch outside under a canopy. It was a sunny day and a little hot, but it was nice to be outside for a while. I went to donate plasma afterwards. We stopped at Chick-fil-A for lunch and ended up getting the meal for free due to technical issues. We ended the night by going to a dinner with ladies from church and spending time with our little teenage friend. It was a good and productive day.

My sister and I have been watching the “Be Our Chef” show on Disney+ and decided we wanted to do a Disney themed meal one day. Yesterday we went shopping for the ingredients, and today we made the meal. To be honest, we did not actually cook anything, but we did put thought into how it would fit each movie. Haha.

For anyone who is curious, I did a 101 Dalmatians themed dinner. My sister did dessert with a Frozen theme. I bought pizza for dinner with black and white toppings and red soda to drink. We also had muddy buddy “puppy chow” mix and white chocolate covered strawberries with chocolate chip sprinkles for snacks. My sister bought a cheesecake and decorated it with blue coloring, sprinkles, and Frozen toys.

I picked up our teenage friend after work today. We had homemade cheeseburgers and milkshakes. Then we went through a car wash and got some snacks. We went back to her house and watched a movie together to end the night. I am glad we live in a small town that makes the transition back to normal life much easier than it would be in urban areas.
