We had a few weeks without rain, so I sacrificed for the good of all and got my car, Gypsy Blue, washed. It’s been raining ever since. You’re welcome , farmers. My potted flowers did not survive the mini-drought, as I only watered them 2 or 3 times. So sad. So neglectful. What can I say?

I had lunch with No.2 Sis on Saturday, and I offered to come to her house and put more photos in albums. She said no, she wanted to work on my garage. She’s crazy, but I’m willing to take advantage of that. We spent the hot, rainy afternoon going through boxes, filling the recycling bin, and cleaning up the painting area. I had put cardboard down before painting, but the garage floor is still colorful in spots. It adds character.

We packed the large recycling wheelie bin full of broken down cardboard boxes. We estimated that at 6 bags. We threw away 3 bags of trash. And we packed Gypsy Blue’s back seat and trunk full of 8 bags and boxes for the Goodwill! I didn’t want to procrastinate the Goodwill trip, so we went as soon as we had swept the garage floor and called our work finished for the day. Unfortunately, the line at Goodwill was about 3 cars and 1 U-Haul truck deep, so I decided the donation could wait until Sunday.

We went back to my house, cleaned ourselves up a bit, and I treated No.2 Sis to dinner. I appreciate her help so much! When I’m working by myself, I can fill up a few bags and boxes, but it takes a sister to get me to 17 bags and boxes in one day!

The hoses are coiled and contained, the pots are ready for next year. The stuff added to the bottom shelf has to go into the car. And the white cord on the middle shelf? I found the missing drill!!

On Sunday, I went back to the Goodwill and found no line at all. Yay! I got rid of the 8 bags and boxes. Then I went to the grocery store for a pot roast. I was rather shocked at the prices, so I got stew meat instead. It’s been in the crock for 4 hours. I tasted it. I wish I’d gotten the pot roast. Well, it’s edible, just not great. Pot roast or pork roast next weekend, damn the expense!

And guess where Gypsy Blue is right now. Parked in the garage!!!!

Stay tuned…
