All Moved In

Daughter had me call her early to get an early start.  She called me later to say that the two workmen arrived a little after 9:00 a.m. and they moved all her stuff to her studio apartment by 12:45 p.m.  She was surprised at how quickly they were able to move her stuff - furniture and boxes!  She has spent the rest of the day unpacking and putting away her things.  Poor thing is tired.

It's been a warm day, today.  Fortunately, I was in the air conditioned comfort of the office, all day.  But it was 99F outside at 6:30 p.m.  The house had remained relatively cool at 85F.  I kept the windows closed and drapes drawn until after 7:30 p.m. and then, opened the windows to cool the house down.  I haven't been able to put up the air conditioner, again, after I had it taken down when it rained, several weeks ago.  I will ask my gardener if he could stop by on Saturday to install the air conditioner, again.  It's going to be 104F on Saturday through Monday, according to the weather forecast.

I watered the back garden in the evening.  I should have watered the front, too, but I was busy talking with daughter.  Maybe, if I wake up early tomorrow morning, I can water the front before I leave for work.

Plans for tomorrow include:

- Watering the front garden
- Going to the office
- Having the gardener continue to mulch flower beds
- Paperwork
- Call cousin

Today, I am grateful for:

- Daughter's move going so smoothly and quickly
- Helpful workmen
- Narrowly avoiding an accident in the parking lot
- House staying relatively cool
- Cool evenings

How was your day, today?  What are your plans for tomorrow?  What are you grateful for, today?


  1. I'm glad they got her all moved in quickly. And I hope you are able to get your air conditioner in.

    My Thursday was good. Same old. It's been cooler so we've been able to go for more walks in the stroller. The flowers in the Wednesday post, Little Wolf loves and is constantly pointing and jabbering and wanting to stop by them. Friday is my birthday. I'll get a couple of presents from the husband and my boy and the husband is bringing home Little Ceasers pizza after work. Other than that, same old things.

    1. Jess, Happy Birthday for tomorrow! Hope you have a wonderful birthday and wish you all the best. :)

      I have some of those same flowers growing in my garden - they are a type of amaryllis and are called Belladonna Lilies. They are also known by another name: Naked Ladies! Because they bloom before the leaves come out!

  2. So proud Daughter got move and settled.
    Hope the gardner helps you get the ac in.. 104 degrees is HOT..EEEH..
    Try to stay cool.. We have had a little cooler week this wee.Thank God..
    It is in the high 80s, a lot better than 100 degrees..

    1. Thanks, Judy. Yes, the gardener said he'll come over tomorrow morning to put in the a/c for me. My bedroom window is high up on the wall, and I am not strong enough, any more, to lift the a/c unit above my head (used to be able to do it, when I was younger). If the window was at waist level, I might have been able to do it myself. But don't want to risk hurting myself. Oh, and the temps. will go up still more, in Sept. and even October.
