Things have been busy here. Harry and I went to Memphis for a reef keepers shin-dig but not to Beal Street. Darn it all. He said it would be too much for me. Never mind the facts - I just wanted to listen to the blues.
I've been working towards re-doing the room that was left open (not empty) when Joe moved out. Progress is very slow - but progress is movement in the right direction. I'm concentrating on the closet right now. It has a new coat of paint (walls and trim), carpet removed, tack strip out (Harry did that for me), and toe moulding removed. I still have to paint the baseboards; clean old paint off the toe moulding and put a new finish on it; and clean the hardwood. Then I'll have an empty space ready for organizer, racks, and cubbies. For me, a closet is the hardest thing to re-do.
The boys and their parents went to the beach for fall break. Jesse came back with a bad case of swimmer's ear. Tomorrow he'll see the doctor and we'll go from there. Jesse just turned nine and Keith will turn eight at the end of the month. Jesse is tall as me now and James isn't far behind him. How time does fly!!! Everyone, please note that grandchildren seem to grow up much faster than your own kids. Take every opportunity to spend time with them,
Kitty has been such a good girl since her foray into the linen closet that I canceled the lump of coal.
Take care and enjoy every moment. My best to everyone.
