I spent a little bit of time clearing up the back yard and uncovering the patio table and chairs (yeah, I know it's late, but better late than never) so we can eat outside. Somehow the screen door locked itself with me on the outside. I had to phone Stirling to let me in. I'm glad I keep my cell phone in my pocket. Then I discovered that the cat had had a bad case of itchy bum and I had to clean that up. Back to my book.

I defrosted the meaty bits from butchering the whole boneless ribeye, and will run them through the grinder. Have a hankering for chili, which may or may not be done today.

DH had to call the hotel after he locked himself out on the balcony of his room.

The hospital wants to know what to do with the body. She doesn't have an answer for them.

Does it ever end? I have to get dressed and go to my daughter's home. I want just an hour of calm right now.
Addie, so sorry this has fallen to you. Hugs!

In Denver our deadbolt was keyed on both sides...I got locked IN our apartment because my keys went missing, they were under the couch. I had to call Shrek to come and let me out so I could go to work.

Addie, I am lifting up thoughts and prayers big time for your granddaughter and especially for you. Take good care of yourself. We are all hear for you.
