Time Out

I was lucky if I got three hours sleep last night.  Finally at 3 am I got up and started cleaning.  It has been a long busy day with a dent in a couple of things.

I need a "time out", and hope I get it at bedtime this evening, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.

Getting It Ready

This morning was no joy when I got up with a Migraine.  I had been to bed early, sound asleep when my Son called me, then again when Rob called me, then once more time when Rob came in .....sleep was well past me at that point.  Dribs and drabs are better then none I suppose.

It was a busy day both Rob and I as we have been preparing the RV and getting it ready for a road trip soon.  A much needed one for both of us I might add.

We have friend coming to house sit and look after the Moms and pups, Bandit will go to my brothers, and Buddy will be coming along with us.

Rob had to dig out stuff stored in the basement from our other trailer.  I was cleaning and sorting most of the day long.

Yesterday Rob had removed the bucket chair so we had room to put in a crate for Buddy.  It worked out real well where we put it.

It sure is a lot of work to go somewhere before you get going.  I suppose once it has been set up the way we want it, much can be left in there for the next time around, but or perishables and bedding.

Late this afternoon I went for a pedicure ... a treat from a Gift Certificate I had.  I enjoyed it immensely.

Dinner? BBQ'd sausage and green/yellow beans.  Very yummy.

This evening I did more laundry and more cleaning in the RV.  I am sweating buckets, so much for the shower I had this afternoon !

I have actually begin reading a book again, after a very long time of not doing so, once being an addicted reader.  I am presently reading Still Alice.  I would love to also see the movie as I do so love Meryl Streep.

Nothing more to write this day, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.

True friends to me are like diamonds, every girl's best friend, and they always shine through when you most need them.

My girlfriend, Brenda, was in town for an appointment today.  We met up for tea at Tim Hortons, and had a great visit.  Thanks Brenda I needed that wee "time out" xoxoxo.

True friends do not judge, they are accepting no matter what.  True friends as such are very hard to find, so I cherish each and every one I have, and so very thankful each are in my Life.

I was not having a great day as I worn to a frazzle.  I think I slept a bit this afternoon.

Another friend had heard I have been under the weather, and dropped around to return an item I had lent her.  She brought along a beautiful lavender plant, and a sweet thank you note.  Thanks BJ xx

As well as doing the 52 Week Money Challenge, Rob and I also save loose silver in our Piggy Bank, and toonies & loonies in our Nest Egg jar.  We save for a year then count it out to put towards something we want.... this year it will be put towards our Holiday.

Drum roll please ..... this year we saved $303.00 !!!  not too shabby I am thinking.

Today Rob found time to take out the "extra" swivel chair from the RV to make a spot for a dog kennel, since Buddy will be vacationing with us.  We have hired a friend to stay at the house for us, and Bandit will be going with my brother.  Lots to do before we even think about going anywhere.

Almost Done

With help from Rob today, who organized the wires  behind my PC, located in the spare bedroom, I am almost done in there (don't look anywhere else though in our house, as YIKES !).

What is left is to organize the grandboy's toys, and declutter the closet in this room.  Then it is onto another room.   Clean and organized is what makes me feel good, not finding the time or energy to do so does not.

I am hoping for great weather tomorrow, as I would like to set up tables outside and put out what I have ready for a Yard Sale.  Fingers crossed the weather forecast is right.

Sleep? still not so good, but no napping so that might make for a better night ahead, or not.

I am still doing the 52 Week Money Challenge.  Hope everyone who came on board with the challenge with me are also doing well?

One day at a time going forward, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.

Mostly Done

I had a sleepless night, once again, last night.  I think I will try the sleeping meds again this evening.

I got one of our two "spare" bedrooms changed around today, with lots of help with Rob bringing in the bed we had gotten from my Cousin Brad, and his wife, Paula.  We downsized in that room from a Queen to a double.

The "new to us" bed came from my Uncle Jack's place, and it is an antique, more then likely built in one of the furniture factories he worked for on the road selling.  Once the room is all finished I will post photos.

The cobwebs were cleared from the overhead fan light, window cleaned to a "sparkle", and the computer desk pulled out waiting to be cleaned behind of lots of dust and to have the cords organized (hopefully by Rob).  Still I am mostly done in that room but for the computer desk and the closet.

The rest of the house? it looks like it has gone to Hell in a Handbag .... geesh it is always a mess to clean a mess in this house it seems.  Will I ever get a handle on it again? time will tell so for the moment it is what it is.

I hear tomorrow it is to rain all day long, then be nice all next week.  I am tired of rain, bring on the sunshine !!!!

I did get 3 loads of wash done today, and the curtains from the spare room, dining room and patio window toppers included.

Other then being surrounded by a mess, I have been productive and not sitting on my butt all day, not that I usually do, however I did not have a nap even though I am certain I could use one.

The day is going towards a finish, and this is all she wrote, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.

One Load ....

One load ....

.... didn't cut it, we had to bring in a 2nd load of gravel to replenish our drive yesterday.  Oh yes bottom photo is of my Wedding Clematis taken over the shed.

Today was a haircut for me, and a trip to the Doctor.  Dinner was Homemade potato salad, which Rob made, and Sweet Corn.

I was awake all last night and done like dinner at the moment, heading off to bed shortly, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.
