I am getting ready to pack a few more boxes as TB is taking another load to the storage locker. It is getting pretty full there; however, he is going to remove some items (but thankfully they aren't coming back home!). He is taking all his Halloween light show stuff to his brother's place so they can hook it up there. We are not supposed to have it here and if we are showing the place we really don't want "Thriller" or "Monster Mash" playing on the front lawn .

Just curious Addie....does Pirate live with you in your senior building?

-----------

I'm multi tasking this morning. On my second cup of coffee, reading the grocery store sale flyers, playing around online, watching the hummingbirds on the patio buzz around the feeders, and halfway listening to ATK on TV. Good deals at Albertsons this week - .99/lb for pork shoulder roast, .88/lb for chicken thighs. I have lots of chick thighs already, but won't hurt to get more.

Yeah. He is listed as my caregiver. And he is old enough to be eligible for senior housing also.

I have arthritis in my spine and hips. There are days when I consider it a good day if I can just get out of bed. He does most of my housework. And being as short as I am, he is handy for high up chores. Like getting a dish off the second shelf.

Sometimes I find it very painful to stand at the stove and cook. So he cooks a lot of my meals. And he is a dang good cook. He learned it all from his father. He learned the way around a kitchen from him, but he uses my recipes.

Good that he can be there for you, Addie.


LP and CG - you ladies are busy!! Bet you'll be so relieved to get those chores done. It always feels nice to downsize.

Looking for my cell phone.I can't find it anywhere.

Tried calling myself.My better half (phone) has the volume and everything else turned way down.Basically I'm being ignored.I shut the ringer off on it yesterday.We were on the road all day.

Hubby has been wanting me to upgrade it for a few weeks.He just bought a new one.I barely use mine,can't see what the point is to wasting money on a new one.

I'm watching the eclipse of the moon.

Taxy, did you get a good view of it? Of all nights to be cloudy....we can barely see it here. Looks very orange though, from what I can see.

Munky, I hope you've found your phone by now! I see no need to upgrade mine either...my Samsung 3 smartphone works just fine for me for what I need. My SIL gives me his 'old' ones when he upgrades, and I'm totally happy with that!

I went out and checked but the moon was behind the some trees. I'll check later to see if it's risen enough to see.

Absolutely beautiful here. We have a front row seat and the sky is littered with tons of sparkling stars. But the showstopper is the moon and the eclipse. If there's any way for you to view this lovely sight, go for it before it's all over.
