Not much happening here at the work place. I think they have a meeting with the new prospective owners this evening??? I’m not going to fret over it, I will cross that bridge when I get to it.
Today they say is Earth Day and everyone should do something to save the earth, I guess one of the things I could give up is paper plates, I use paper plates for every meal, unless its a holiday or something. I do catch rain water in the summer to water my flowers and wash my hair in. Have you ever used rain water to wash your hair, you need no conditioner, it makes it so soft.
You know I thought I was clumsy, but my neighbor is gotten me beat. Remember my neighobor I told you about who moved here from Pennsylvania and was so home sick and lonely? Well she is settleing in, got her and her husband into bowling with us. Now she loves to do wood working and she was out in her shop making a trellis for her honeysuckle bush and she stepped out of the building and there was this hole and she stepped in it and down she went. They thought she had broken both of her ankles, but after an MRI they are badly sprained. She also hit her head and she had a knot on it the size of an egg, not to mention she had one of her legs stripped for varicous viens and there were 27 incisions on that leg that she had done the week before. So they take her away in the ambulance and I’m thinking they will keep her for a few days.
So the next morning I see her husbands vehicle there and on my way to work, I stop and tap lightly on the door in case he is sleeping, well immediately the door swings open, but I see no one, until I look down and there she is on all fours and just started crying when she saw me. I said what are you doing on the floor? and why aren’t you using crutches or something? Since both of her ankles are sprained , swollen, black and blue she can’t bear any weight on either. She like me is a smoker and she had crawled to the back door to smoke and could not get back and her husband was flat of his back, because he pulled it lifing her back into the house that evening on return from the hospital. Why he didn’t call for help I will never know.
Anyway, I helped her get back to the sofa, make her a pot of coffee and arranged everthing she would need until another one of our neighbors could get there to help her out for the rest of the day. She thanked and thanked me and she said when she pushed that back door open she swore I had wings on my back and was all in a glow. Now what a compliment, I hate this for her, because I know how independent she is and how frustrating this is to her. So to help her with her independence I had a wheel chair and she can go to the bathroom now and get in and out of bed by herself. She called me at work and said what a life saver that wheel chair was. She just kept giving me so much thanks and I said honey you would do this for me if it was reversed right? Ok no thanks needed. Thats what friends do for one another.
She is moving around a little now and the husband can walk again, a little stiff, but he is upright again. Hopefully they will be ok.
Last night was my last night of bowling for the winter league, going to miss all of my great friends for the summer. They have a summer league, but I have so much yard work in the summer, I just don’t have the time. To "toot" my own horn I had the highest average for the women bowlers. HOOT HOOT. LOL
One of my jobs I planned to do this spring is to restain my porch floor. Now I had the steps painted and because they are treated lumber the paint will not stay on, so I had this bright idea to have my son pressure wash the paint off and I would stain them the color of the porch. Well the pressure washer did not remove all of the paint, so I tried scrapping and all I was doing was digging up the wood and the sander was doing the same thing, taking away too much of the wood. So I think the term for this look on my steps is called "stressed", well friends they are stressed and so am I!!! LOL Maybe with time the rest of the paint will chip away. I will try and get before and after pictures when I am completley done.
Well, I’ve probably bored you enough, Hope everyone has a great week.
