Something Good- Day 318-320

We went to my friend’s house on Friday. I have not been able to spend much time with her lately because of traveling and work. Especially with so many of my coworkers being sick, I did not want to take any chances. It was nice to see her though, even with masks and social distancing.

We did a garage sale on Saturday, which was a little crazy because of the cold here. We told people to come around to the side door and made a path through the snow. Only a few people came, but we made a decent amount and got rid of some stuff we did not need. It has been nice to declutter the house a bit, even though there is still more I would like to sell. Then that night, we watched “Annie get your gun” at the local high school. They did a great job, and we were all very impressed.

Today, we were able to do home church for the first time on television. We decided not to attend in person when it started back up because my sister is very prone to catching illnesses, but they finally decided to broadcast our congregation this week. It was nice to see familiar faces on the screen and participate in a way.

Work was a bit crazy today. Both our managers were out sick, as well as another teller. And it was busier than normal because of the holiday yesterday. Luckily, we had planned a potluck for today, so no one had to leave the branch for lunch. That made it easier to get our lunches in while being short staffed.

I had work off today. It was Veteran’s day, so the bank was closed. We met up with one of my sister’s former teachers for lunch. It was fun to get to know her and for my sister to be able to see her. Afterwards, we did some bargain shopping and got some amazing deals.

It has been a while since my last post. I have been falling asleep quickly the past few days. Wednesday and Thursday were slower at work. I dropped by the store on my way home to pick up some items. Then, we watched a show before heading to bed. It was my favorite, The Good Doctor, which I am so glad is back.

Thursday morning, I moved our cat back to the garage after having him upstairs for a few days. Our other cat was not getting along with him, and I decided he was a bit too active to be a house cat. He seemed to do better with eating after we moved him back.

Friday we decided to go out to eat since we got a coupon in the mail. The leftovers lasted us two more meals, so it was not a bad deal.

Saturday, we had a friend come over for a bit. We had lunch and dinner with her and watched a movie while my sister finished homework.

I went back to church today for the first time in a while. We have been cautious about going back to church because quite a few members tested positive for Covid a few weeks ago, and we cannot afford to get sick. It was a good meeting though, and they said they plan to start broadcasting the meeting so more people can participate in the future.

Our new refrigerator was installed today. It looks amazing! It will be so nice to not have to go downstairs every time we need something cold. I am also grateful that the freezer side is much larger than the fridge we had temporarily. As two single women, we tend to use the freezer much more than the fridge because it is difficult to use fresh items before they go bad. After we made sure the fridge was at food-safe temperature, we went grocery shopping for some needed items.

We spent most of Friday afternoon getting ready for Halloween. We made candy chutes and signs for our door. Then, we watched a Halloween movie.

Saturday morning was spent shopping for a new refrigerator. I bought one that was more expensive than originally planned but will arrive earlier and probably fill my needs more long term. I ran a few more errands afterwards, then came back home to pass out candy.

Today was a somewhat stressful day. We had new renters move in last night and realized they are allergic to cats, which is somewhat problematic since we have two cats. We had planned to keep one cat downstairs in the garage but decided we might try something different instead. We spent most of the day rearranging furniture while deciding what to do with our garage cat. We are still working on a final solution but hope it will all work out soon.

Today is my sister’s birthday. We left my brother’s house early this morning to spend some time with a couple of her friends on our way back home. We also stopped a couple times along the way to shop and eat. We were able to find the last book of a series she has been collecting, as well as several movies and books at the local thrift store. We ended the night with one of her favorite desserts, pumpkin cheesecake.

I took my nieces and nephews to a couple pumpkin patches today. They had a lot of fun going down slides, playing in corn pits, riding on wagons, and petting animals. We picked out a large pumpkin and stopped at the store to buy juice to drink. It was a fun day, and most of the children had fallen asleep by the time we returned home.
