There was sweat. (When I first typed that, it said “swear”. Probably a lot of that!) It got up to 90 degrees today. I’m not complaining. There’s no hurricane about to get us so we’re in good shape. Speaking of hurricanes, one friend left Lake Charles today and it took them 5 hours to get to Vinton, which on a slow day shouldn’t take much more than an hour. She said they were averaging 3.5 miles per hour. Traffic is bumper to bumper. Not sure why they didn’t close down eastbound I-10 and let all lanes be westbound but that call is way above my pay grade.
Vince worked his tail off today. He had to cut and create boxes for things like the solar ovens, big canner, etc. We did get a lot of stuff from upstairs down, cleaned and packed.
As I mentioned, I got a freezer emptied. I packed the third bookshelf in the sewing room, packed most of what’s on the shelves in the laundry room and packed a bit more in the kitchen. I’m leaving some basic stuff in the kitchen because we’ll be back and forth for a while.
We’ve had dinner. Vince will watch TV for a few minutes and I’ll knit. I think we’ll be in bed early tonight.
Here’s a funny story. Last night, as usual, Vince went to bed before I did. I wasn’t up too late and he was still awake when I went to bed, but not for long. I was reading and I heard the loudest crash/bang somewhere in the living area. I said “Vince. . Vince, did you hear that?” No response, which meant he didn’t hear it. No alarms were going off so I assumed no one was in the house, put my book down and I went to sleep.
Vince got up this morning before I did. I was awake but reading and I heard another crash/bang. I said “What on earth is going on?” Vince said “You left this pot in the middle of the floor and I ran into it!”
Oh, I had not left the pot in the floor. I must have had it stacked on a pile to be packed and it toppled over. It was a Graniteware double boiler with a lid and it fell on the slate floor (noisy), landed right side up, with the lid still on it, and didn’t get dented. That’s weird.
