The weekend zipped by, didn't it? And mine was not what I had planned.
Saturday started off nicely with a meet up with Dee. We chatted and sipped and did a little knitting. I don't think we solved any of the world's problems that morning (but we always try). We went our separate ways and I headed home to gather up laundry and then head over to C&M's. Colin had suggested that I run the washer on a cleaning cycle first since it had been sitting for so long. I put an Affresh tablet in the machine but then I could not get the damn machine to turn on! I unplugged it and plugged it back in a couple of times and kept hitting the power button, but nothing. So, the machine is sitting over there with a cleaning tablet in it. I ended up going to a laundromat nearby.
The laundromat was not bad - very clean and two sizes of machines. I just did one load, but it was done in under half an hour. I brought the wet clothes home to dry. I ended up going back on Sunday and doing two more loads. While the machines were washing, I walked down the shopping center to the grocery store to pick up a few things and by the time I got back the laundry was finished!! Again I brought everything home - some dried on the clothes line and some went into the dryer.
Meanwhile, I had heard back from the repair folks and everything had been ordered and they should be back out again on Thursday with a new motor and whatever else had been ordered for my machine.
I did have a very nice surprise when I got home on Saturday. A number of years ago Fletch built a water feature at the edge of our patio. We love sitting out there and listening to water flowing - almost like having a little stream. For a variety of reasons, it was never set up this year and we were talking about missing the sound of water the other day. When I got home on Saturday from the laundromat, Fletch had set up a new feature as an early birthday gift for me!!
I love it!!
We are scheduled to get flu shots late morning and...supposedly...the new Covid booster. The CVS we go to scheduled us, but since then we've heard it won't be available till September. Guess we will find out later. We wanted to get all this taken care of before we take off for a little bit in October. I keep hearing that Covid is back on the rise...I'd rather be as protected as I can be.
And that's a wrap for me! Tell me, how was your weekend? I hope it was a good one and let's make this next week an easy one if we can.
