THIS WEEK

Wayne worked on our new back porch this week, and it is really looking good.  He took yesterday and today off  from working on it, yesterday because of rain, and today just to rest his back.  He is planning on building a new step and moving the dog to Jackie's run tomorrow.  He will soon be starting on the ramp and putting the new railings up.  It will be nice to have it done, even though I probably won't be taking advantage of it for a while.  The car carrier for my power chair is rather expensive, and I'm not eager to spend that money.  I am eager to be able to spend more time in bookstores, etc., so I have mixed feelings.

Talk about mixed feelings, I am getting itcy feet to take a trip.  I am really wanting to go to Denver to see Danny, but with the weather cooling off it feels so cozy staying inside with a good book. My body seems to think I am getting ready to hibernate, I can't get enough to eat.  As soon as I finish eating something, I start planning what I can eat most.  This is not a good thing.

We ate lunch at Country Buffet Thursday, and while Wayne was eating dessert, I took a survey about the restaurant, which earned me a card for a free meal.  It is good until the end of October, and I know we will go back there in time for me to use it. Where else can two adults eat lunch, including drinks and desserts, for just over thirteen dollars?

Garret and Kalee moved from the base hotel to a long term motel today.  They were looking forward to having a kitchenette, but were disappointed when they found out what a fully furnished kitchen consisted of. One pan, one skillet, and a plastic spatula. Not much in way of dishes, either.  The good part is that they will be closing on their new house in only thirteen days, so they won't be in the motel very long.  The bank estimate on their place came back, and it was estimated to be worth a lot more than they are paying for it, so that made them very happy.

Trees are starting to change colors and the temperature right now is 51 degrees.  Brrrr

This is going to be a good sleeping night.  I hope.
