It pretty much rained most of the day yesterday, which was really nice for a change. It also helped to clear up the bad air quality we've been having the past week. Even though he got rained on dh went outside and finished up with the pile of landscape rock that was left. Another little project he needs to do is insulate the ceiling in the shed. He says it's a quick job (I think he is spraying in), but it's also a 2 person job and he doesn't think I'm strong enough to help, so he tried to find someone to just hire for a quick job. Tried to get the guy he hired who helped build the shed, but of course he didn't return his call. As he was out front by the fence working yesterday our young neighbor down at the end of the street was coming or going and stopped to chat with dh. He said he'd be glad to give dh a hand with it. DH says it's really like a 20-30 minute job, so he's thankful for the offer of help. I told dh I pay in eggs LOL. I know DH will try to pay him (generously) and I'm sure he won't let him.
While he was outside I cleaned the downstairs, vacuumed and mopped. I made a loaf of banana bread after I got up, to use up some very ripe bananas. My mom called to say hello. She was getting her flu shot after lunch. I guess it got postponed from the original day, as they were waiting on the covid test results for whoever lives or works there. She also went and did exercise class, again. It appears from their monthly schedule that exercise class is every day Tues-Sat and she's been going most days. So good for her. She said mostly they sit in chairs but she and a couple others do some of the exercises standing. She called later and said she got the shot and it was quick, easy and painless. She also asked me if she was registered to vote. I couldn't remember! I know when we went and got her ID card the guy asked if she wanted to register and I couldn't remember what she decided. I figured out there is a way to look it up online and she is registered, so I called her back and told her she is and will get her absentee ballot closer to election day.
I ordered dh a new office chair and chair mat from Amazon on Friday. I got sick and tired of looking at reviews, so picked one that had majority good reviews, looks nice, and in my price range. Like I said anything has to be better than sitting on a wood dining chair. The chair mat is for hard floors and is clear, so it doesn't cover the look of the wood floor.
I started a 1000 piece puzzle. Way harder than 500 piece LOL. There are too many pieces that fit but actually are not the right piece. I was getting frustrated with just doing the edge/outside. I'm still haven't got the outside done right, but no more pieces, haha. On one side that had night sky I had to rearrange all the pieces several times to get them all to finally fit. I'd hook several together that fit perfectly but they weren't the right piece. Apparently I need to figure that same situation out on the other 3 sides.
Today I HAVE to clean out the coop. I didn't end up doing it last Sunday as dh didn't want me outside in the bad smokey air. As soon as they are done laying for the day (usually by around noon) I'll get out there.
