Tuesday, Grindstone day
The missionaries stopped me on Sunday and asked if I could do their laundry, as they had no facilities in their apartment. So they dropped off and will pick up this morning. It was just one load of white and one of dark, it was the 6 white shirts and the 4 pairs of pants I had to press that almost killed me:) As my ironing pile sits there glaring at me.
I also forgot I was supposed to take a meal into a family that had a very sick mother. So about 5 o'clock, I ran to store to get the cheap chicken deal, and some ice cream bars and a bag of mini carrots. See how not paying attention costs money? I was cursing myself the whole time until I saw the 11 year old daughter open her door and say ,"Oh some one brought us food!" She was surrounded by her younger brothers and sisters and all were excited. I think there has been a lot of peanut butter and jelly there recently.We had meat loaf (previously frozen) mashed potatoes, corn, cucumbers, and tomatoes out of the garden. So our meal was great and well free.
It is going to be very hot here the next 4 days like 108-110. I need to can tomatoes but I think I will just put them all in the fridge and can next week. Even though I do it outside it is still just too hot for that and I love the heat.
My puppy is doing his spaz thing of running back and forth down stairs as fast as he can. Corgis love to run fast sprints, you can just see joy in their eyes when they do this. It is play time as he naps all afternoon. I want to be a Corgi in my next life.
I am going to finish the pile today, do some ironing, finish my laundry, and pick all the garden produce. Then I am going to go put a bandage on my nose.
What are you guys going to do?
Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
