And here is where I am.
Mary Allen Sampler by Samplers Remembered
40ct RR Creme Brulee
I copied Siobhan's choice of fabric.
I just hope I can make it through all those words and letters. Not my favorite thing. lol!
We had some people come in to clean up the basement and spray antimicrobial stuff to prevent mold and bad things growing. A 30 ft. dumpster was practically filled up by all the stuff that was damaged by the 5 or 6 inches of water we got from Irene.
I couldn't believe that two guys could bring up all that stuff from the basement, but they did. The spraying happened afterwards, and then industrial fans were set up down there to help dry the basement out.
The dumpster should be picked up today (we managed to throw some things into it from the garage too), and I'm calling the basement dry as of today and calling the people to pick up their fans too. It's a good feeling to have that work done.
On Saturday, we helped the girl child move back to college. This involved two cars for a change. The girl child drove her new used car down to college with the father type riding shotgun. She needs a car on campus this year since she will be working part time at the place where she worked for the summer. The boy type rode with me in the minivan packed with the majority of the girl child's stuff. I do have to say things went pretty quickly unloading with 4 people -- and with the girl child having learned what to bring and what not to bother with. After the unloading, we stopped in town for some sushi, teriyaki and tempura at the girl child's favorite sushi place -- soooo good! Then it was goodbye and driving home.
I think this year marks a record -- for the least watched matches at the US Open for me. The first week, we didn't have power until Thursday. The second week, I was busy with the flood guys and various other things -- plus two days were rained out at the Open, on days when I could have watched. Saturday, the boy child kept me informed of the scores at the Djokovic/Federer match while we were doing the college trip. I'm actually grateful to the girl child for keeping me from watching that one. Ouch. I watched the tail end of the Nadal/Murray match when we got home. I will miss large chunks of the men's final tonight as well since the boy child's orchestra starts tonight and I'm on driving duty. Oh well.
But I got to watch the women's final -- congrats to Sam Stosur! Yay! I was so happy for her!
Mia's life hasn't been much affected by all the chaos of Irene, Irene cleanup, packing for college, etc. Here she is sleeping with her boy child during one of their final naps of the summer.
Now the boy child is back in school and Mia won't have a napping buddy. Unless the boy child falls asleep during homework. lol!
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. It's always good to visit with you. Have a great week!
