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… 🐝💦
