Hello my friends, we had the most beautiful day here in Alberta. I was awake about 5 minutes this morning when I received a surprise phone call from a friend, just a wonderful way to begin my day. The morning was cool then the sun came out and it went to 30 degrees C. This evening cooled down again and was great for sitting out on the front step chatting with my neighbour.
I loved today.....my mood was one of contentment and happiness.
Yesterday I was back to doing my Fall cleaning and did even more today. I cleaned out 3 closets and all my dresser drawers. I have 3 large bags and 1 huge carton box full of perfectly good clothing which are going to charity. I kept thinking I would wear them but it's been a year and I haven't so out they go. It is so nice to open my dresser drawers and closets and see exactly what I want not to mention how tidy everything looks. I now have my Dining Room done, 2 bedrooms and half my storage space. It's too soon to put my winter duvet and linens on or even to put up my heavier curtains in my bedroom, but they have all been dry cleaned and ready to be used whenever the weather changes.
Tomorrow the contractors are coming in and replacing my Patio Doors with Garden Doors, I am really looking forward to having that project completed. On Thursday I am having a lady come in to give me an estimate on new drapes for my living room and new shears for the Garden Doors. I hope they aren't too expensive as it will give the room a new look which it really needs.
I am a bit worried as the contractors asked me to take down my vertical blinds on the Patio Doors and as hard as I tried I wasn't able too. I was able to take the topper down but my hands were not strong enough to remove each vertical, I am hoping they will do it without being upset with me. I did manage to move the heavy oak table and chairs out of their way....don't get me wrong I love my life, my Independence but there are some times I could use a man around here. I wonder if I can hire one by the hour.....just say'in!
I am really tired tonight, these arthritic hands and feet are paining from all the extra lifting and carrying heavy items up and down 3 flights of stairs. I shouldn't of gone to Curves before lunch, I don't think I needed any more exercise than I have had these past two days but I do feel good accomplishing all I have. So it's a good kind of tired and I know tomorrow will be as good and productive as today was.
Good Night my friends and God Bless.........as always many, many Hugs...:-)
