We had a busy weekend. Got the younger daughter's car up and running, brakes changed on the truck and oil changed. Moved 2 loads of furniture out of Dad's place too. The tag stapled to the bottom of his sofa had the date 11-21-1960. There is still much to go through.
We had younger daughter switch back to her car, so we can then change the brakes on my car. Whew. After that I hope we are done with car repairs for a while.
We helped two local restaurants over the weekend. First, our favorite was closed due to Covid. The other was the first one we went to where they took your temperature when you entered and all employees were wearing gloves. The other we did take out with.
This week is a very exciting (happy) week for us. We have a birthday, Christmas and our anniversary coming up.
First today, I need to whip up some homemade ginger-ale for Youngest. She has cold like symptoms and has laryngitis. Oh, she tried to go to Urgent care. The line for covid testers was way out the door. They sent her home and said come back at 4pm today. So in the meantime, sage tea or tincture and homemade ginger-ale (already simmering now).
Then I need to finish making homemade cards to finish up Mom's Christmas present. Oye, Christmas really snuck up on us this year.
Guess who lost the only box of Christmas cards she had? Yep. I have not found them, and when I do it will be too late to mail them. Sigh.
These restrictions regarding covid are driving me nuts. The daughter who works retail, said her co-worker tested negative, but because his wife is sick and he answered two questions with a yes, he was sent home. These employees (including both daughters who work) do NOT get paid a dime when forced to stay home.
