Monday June 5th –
Mike and I got up and ready for the days work ahead of us.
With him heading to the family mill, after dropping me off to clean a new furniture store in town before they open up shop.
I was asked to come help the lady I’d previously cleaned with and together, we wiped, scrubbed, vacuumed and tidied steadily, for 8.5 hours 😬
Time went by fairly quickly but come 3:00 ish, my energy reserves were beginning to fail me.
My feet and arms not used to continual usage, hours on end 😜
It was a good day of hard work but once Mike came to get me at 5:30 I was more than ready to kick my shoes off and tend to my wounds.
A sliced arm, stubbed pinky and cardboard cut knuckles making me hope even harder that I can continue to sell the cement items 😜
Mike had gotten me a Starbucks iced coffee but since he’d asked for less ice, they had just filled the whole thing with milk and it was pathetic tasting 🙄
So in accordance to Starbucks policy, I went in and got a new one made free, with an extra shot of espresso 😎☕️

Monday May 22nd –
Michiel was off to work with some friends for the next couple of days and Mom and I had yard stuff to do.
She more than I, since I got the cushy job of lawn mowing while she began the branch and leaf hauling 😬
I worked on that until three in the afternoon but once Mom gets going she doesn’t come to a stop very quickly, so she went on for a few more hours.
We’d stopped for gnocchi leftovers for a few minutes somewhere in there until finally and happily we had each ended our tasks and were able to rid ourselves of layers of dirt, grime and bugs 😖
My flip flops had like, a half inch of those sticky things from the trees, layered on the bottom of them, so I got to scrape those off and if ever you have to clean those off your shoe soles, I recommend spreading coconut oil on them and then letting them sit in the sun for a few minutes.
Worked like a charm… but doesn’t coconut oil help everything? 😜
Wraps made up our supper and as our day came to a finish we sipped our coffees and made note of what a beautiful day it had been👌🏻☀️🌿
Later in the evening, popcorn was made and a short movie watched from the comfort and cool of the basement and its ultra comfy couch 😉 Continue reading “Fixings And Findings”
Tuesday Feb 21st –
Mike made us bacon and eggs for breakfast.
Odd of us to have breakfast on a day that isn’t Sunday I know, but he was making some for himself since he was headed over to help Oma and Opa sort through some attic stuff, so I decided I might as well start the day how your supposed to as well.
Maybe that’s what messed up my day 😜
I didn’t feel fabulous much of the day, coffee not even giving me the boost I needed, so not a lot was done besides try making brownies from a recipe Zoe gave me.
She makes the best brownies 😎
They didn’t turn out like hers… how expectable🙄
I mean, they did taste like brownies sure, just not HER brownies.
A nap was attempted to be taken but a pigeon stopped that from happening.
I was juuuuust about asleep and I heard a weird scraping metal kind of sound.
