Well, I had my brown rice, chicken, mushrooms,with walnuts, parsley, onion and chopped celery, a salad, and peach pie for dessert. I'm set for an hour or two, and then some! Finished off the bottle of wine in the fridge.
No table, no cabinet for the kitchen. Just didn't see anything that spoke to me. Did see a hutch bottom that I liked, but it was a pale green, and I don't want to introduce another color on a big piece in the kitchen. On one hand, G.T. offered to paint it, and then on the other, said the shelf that pulled out was not strong enough for me to prepare and knead on.
Wandered up to the mattress room and did buy a new mattress and box spring. In fact, salesman directed me to a lower priced one than I was looking at, saying with hip problems this one would be easier on my hips, since I lay on my side. That will come in 2 weeks.
We did stop in Home Depot for a couple of things and a lady came up to me and chatted about ceiling fixtures I was looking at, and then said, "How old are you?" I told her and she said, "I'm 91" - Told her she had to kidding, she looked younger than me. Wonder if she drove herself there, she was all alone and just as spry and with it as me, carrying her own purchase.
Came home, ate, G.T. did a little yard work, and now they have left to do some shopping of their own back in their neck of the woods. Foot/toe is feeling fine.
Have a great time at your SIL's Kargiver. It's a beautiful day.
