Just finished mopping floors and cleaning 2 toilets ~ I have one more upstairs to go. Relaxing and playing online a bit, then off to shower and go do more grocery shopping at WalMart (seems it's a lot cheaper there). Make dinner, exercise, shower again then eat dinner.

The usual morning chores of feeding the inside and outside kitties...and petting them.

After breakfast, put assorted stuff away and emptied the litter box. Made a bunch of phone calls. Turns out that changing the beneficiary on my life insurance is more complex than I'd imagined.

Sent out the normal Friday newspaper columns and, then, went to the shop to work on a couple of customer projects.

After several hours there pulling staples and tacks, my right hand (carpal tunnel and arthritis) hurt too much to continue so came home and threw some lunch together.

A delivery from a supplier was on the porch when I got home. Now I can finish a customer project that's been hanging fire for a while. I'll be glad to get it off the back burner.

Overcast and gloomy today. Am considering taking a nap. Probably won't because that means I won't sleep tonight.

I'll be talking to Buck's mom on the phone tonight. Our Friday ritual for years. She's 94 and still kickin' butt and takin' names. What a lady! She's the mother I never had.

Talked with my youngest brother on the phone at about 7:30 this morning. He's one of my best friends. He has a busy schedule today because he's performing in an area production of Chicago. They're in rehearsal right now, so his days begin early and end late. The last performance is September 14. I'll attend the evening performance on September 12. He may be my brother, but he's very good.

Most of the mid part of the day I've been finishing a pink knitted stuffed bunny toy for my other brother's first grandchild, a girl. I've never made this pattern before and it's turning out really great. Really girly!

When I finish with the bunny, which will be in less than an hour, I'll finish restoring a "Curious George" stuffed monkey for a client. I'm almost done and he's looking much healthier.

Just came from downstairs where I had a nibble of lunch and threw some chicken and veggies in my little crock-pot for tonight's dinner.

Will talk to my mother-in-law later. She was out last night.

The only other thing on my agenda is sitting on the porch this evening.

I'm off to Palm Beach with some friends, so once we get there, I'm going to bed.

We had a productive day around the house.
Finished laundry, cut the grass, havested and cleaned the garden, filled in some low spots around the yard with soil and assembled a crib for GF's grand children.
