I keep thinking today is Saturday. I don’t know why!
It’s a rare day that I’m up before Vince. This morning I was awake about 4:45 but we did go to bed fairly early last night. I thought I might go back to sleep but after a few minutes, decided to get up. I quietly closed the bathroom door behind me, then I brushed my teeth manually (without the power on to the electric toothbrush!), then tip toed back through the bedroom, and quietly closed the door as I left the room. I got a load of clothes washed and was doing some tax work when Vince got up about 7:45. He walked into the living room and I scared him half to death!
Vince: You’re in here??
Vince: I was sure you were still in bed. I was so quiet so as not to disturb you!
He almost turned and went back to the bedroom to make sure I wasn’t in there. I was about to crack up laughing at him.
He kept saying . . I was sure you were in there! Then he wanted to know when I got up and how I got out of bed without him waking up.
Of course, we went to town. We haven’t missed a day yet. We had to go to the bank and do some stuff there, then we went to Walmart. I got some pots to plant elderberry cuttings in. I got a little rug to put down where you walk from the tile floor to the wood floor; I got some flowers to put in pots on the front porch and I got little containers of rosemary, basil and oregano to set out in pots. The rosemary in Texas had looked dead but Vince said it was coming back so if it comes back there, you’d think it would come back here. I may plant some in the ground just to see what happens.
We both ended up taking naps. I had gone to bed and just barely fallen asleep when Vince came in. He said he couldn’t keep his eyes open and I think we both were immediately asleep. I woke up a couple of hours later and he was already awake and back to working on taxes. He said he hadn’t been up long.
There have been storms all evening . . enough that they cancelled Food Truck Friday about 4 p.m. and asked everyone to go some place safe. There hasn’t been a threat of tornadoes, though there’s a slim chance that could happen before these storms move out. Mostly it’s been hail but if it happened here, it was while we were napping.
I love storms when they aren’t scary. That is one thing I missed in Texas. We rarely had good thunderstorms. Of course, Rita is looking at me like . . are you crazy? She is not a fan of thunder! I think the weather man said it should all end by 10 p.m. so we can go to sleep without worrying about what may happen during the night.
We got pizza for dinner. It’s seeming more and more like we no longer need a kitchen! 🙂 Vince is enjoying the restaurants he’s missed for so long. I plan to cook tomorrow and Sunday. We’ll have to go out some early next week. We have to get the cars inspected and get them tagged, get our driver’s licenses switched back to MO and I think that will be about the last of what we have to do to be finally officially MO residents.
I’m going to spend the rest of the evening stitching . . I hope!
