Saturday Roundup

It has actually been a very busy week, phone calls to return, garden to pick and process, working on knitting and sewing projects for the month (not really getting much completed, but as I finished one today, perhaps I will be able to concentrate on getting a few others done), and of course the volunteer work as well. Who ever said that being retired would give a person more time.

Slowly the garden is being taken up. The last of the beans were picked and eaten earlier this week. We are still getting tomatoes and cucumbers. The potatoes and onions will be dug up once we have a couple of nice days in a row so they can be washed and dried in the sun. Then they will be stored in the cold room.

Harvey has wine, and beer bubbling away in the basement. One batch of wine has been bottled (I need to make labels for it) and one that will be bottled within the next couple of days. 

The carpet and furniture is mostly removed from the living room. Just waiting for a call to remove the last few items.

I am almost finished my library books and am looking forward to getting some new reading material. 

I realized that this Bible Study is going to more or less use up all my time on Thursdays. My meal plan will have to change accordingly. We will have a great many more crock pot or Instant Pot meals on those days. There just isn't time for cooking something on the stove. Good thing is that the study only lasts 6 weeks. This means we will be finished on the 24th of next month. My next volunteer experience starts the week after. Harvey and I will be delivering Meals on Wheels.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. It's great that you are doing some volunteer work. I hope you enjoy it. Are you redecorating your living room?

    1. Yes, we painted a couple of years ago, but never went further. Now we have new carpeting arriving and new furniture as well. Eventually the tables, lights and TV stand will be replaced as well.

      God bless.

  2. We often ask ourselves how we ever had time to go to work, we always fill our days since taking early retirement.
