This is just a random meme I found, no idea of its origin (I did reverse image search and it seems to have been floating around for some time) but its message is really important to me. I felt today is a good day to share it:
Despite being so busy, and a hiccup here and there, I think we really had a good weekend. Yesterday we played cards and did rebus puzzles. And I’ve gotten so much done in terms of exercise, commissions, and housework too. 😊
The dishwasher broke down today. Well, it broke down a while ago, and wasn’t drying the dishes. Opening it up, and doing research, Christopher found the issues and came to the conclusion that we’ve reached a point where a fix does not make economic sense (this dishwasher has been fixed a few times by him) so, a new dishwasher it is.
We got super lucky, and managed to snag one for delivery tomorrow. With the upcoming party, we really needed it.
My t-rex Patriotic garden flag came in!
Here it is, installed:
With Christopher’s blessing, I also put this by the front window:
Unfortunately things have become such that overt displays of patriotism can cause people to assume that we hold a certain political leaning/viewpoints that we strongly disagree with. 😥 So I wanted to make it clear where we stand, regardless of all the USA flags.
That aside, I’ve been working on making the back porch prettier. The little gnome girl was a present from my mom:
I had one of these today while working on commissions, they’re pretty cute:
For dinner, Christopher obliged my rather selfish request and made me absolutely fantastic teriyaki turkey meatballs with rice (I think it was teriyaki, anyway… I made the rice, to help.) It was a great dinner!
Tomorrow I’ll be up at 6:30am again. Lots ‘n lots to do… 🐝💦
