Other Things to Do
Right now I am waiting for word that the POD is being delivered to the new house. It is supposed to be there sometime today. I also have a lot of calls to make and some shopping to do for items needed. Yesterday, I did a Walmart run to pick up some cleaning supplies, and some bathroom needs like bathmats and commode cleaning brushes, etc.
There should soon be a cable guy to install my new internet/cable/phone service. The electricity also should be turned on today. With a heat index of 102, I don't think I want to sit in a non-air-conditioned house, would you? It is going to be so neat to have a closed in garage with my own little door remote!
It is like I have closed the door on one phase of my life and begun another one, but oh, I miss my Sweetie Pie! It is going to take some getting used to.
On Sunday afternoon, Daryl, Carol, Matthew, Amy, Ben and I went over to the new house and cleaned. Ben, Matt and Daryl brought over my new (used) fridge, big overstuffed easy chair with ottoman, and baker's rack, and then helped clean the house. I mostly rested and did the vacuuming of the floors. (Pictures above). Carol spent most of the time on her knees cleaning the kitchen floor with a scrub brush. It is ceramic tile and looks really beautiful. Amy was down on her knees rinsing and wiping the floor as Carol scrubbed.
Ben did the baseboards and fans overhead, Matt did some scrubbing as well, and Amy also did the kitchen cabinets. They really worked hard. Daryl worked on the garage and they all did a beautiful job on the whole house!

Well that is about it for today. Got lots of stuff to do yet before bedtime. This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for now. Much love to each of you. Thank you for your continued prayers on the behalf of myself and my family. Bye for now. More later.
