“Vacation” is over...
Tuesday, September 17, 2019
The summer veggies are mostly done. Dad sent me out with his picking basket to pick what I could find in his garden. Managed to find green beans, broccoli, Swiss chard, and sweet corn. While I was in the garden, dad went and picked the last of the blueberries. (Not enough to freeze, but enough for a couple breakfasts).
I have really enjoyed this “vacation” at my dad’s house. Tigan and I managed to get so much accomplished! The dumpster is completely full now. We finished filling it to the very top yesterday afternoon. Dad has a “reading loft” over his office, which has been blocked from use for nearly 10 years (just junk blocking it, not really anything useful), and we pulled out the old blankets, pillows, and mattresses... swept up the random junk, and put books back on the shelves. Four big, black contractors bags and two mattresses went out. Oh, and yesterday morning I sorted the canned goods and pulled out everything expired, and washed all the recently emptied baskets from the bathroom, as well as washing up some of the things we are keeping from the area around the back chest freezer area.
I also took a trip to Jamestown, with Tigan, at midday. She had an errand to run for a possible new job, and then we went Wegman’s and got the ginger seltzer water we both like so much.
It was actually a lovely, productive day... and I managed to walk about 9 miles... most of it intentional exercise.
The elevator is back in service in the apartment building that I live in though. So, this working vacation ends tomorrow after a quick shopping trip to restock my fridge. (I emptied my fridge when I decided to head off to dad’s to escape my apartment building). I have been here at dad’s for almost two weeks now. I have indeed made good use of my time here at dad’s, but I think it’s about time for me to get back to my routine... and my own space.
Wherever you are in the world, I hope you have a marvelous day!
