Yesterday was a baking day. I made some tapioca pudding first. Then I made a loaf of banana bread. Then dh asked if I'd make another one (still had 2 ripe bananas left) so he could take over to the friend that helped with the gate on Saturday, so I made another loaf. We had given him some money for his time and use of his loader (to take the gate from garage to fence and then he helped maneuver it next to the hinges (hanging the gate from straps on his loader), but dh knew he'd appreciate the banana bread too, and he did.
Very sunny again today and going to be almost 50 degrees, though the report is showing rain and then snow starting tomorrow for the rest of the week. I'm not holding my breath.
I woke up this morning to 5 more document requests from the mortgage re-fi lender. Two of them I already sent. They want the most recent mortgage statements from my main mortgage and my second loan, but sorry, nothing's changed since 5 days ago, LOL. I just put in a note reply to that effect and said I can't upload the February statements until they are available. One of the request was they wanted an explanation of the distance between my employer and where I live. That was easy. I just said I have worked for this company 15.5 years. The first 11 years I lived near the company and worked p/t remote and p/t in the office and since moving 4.5 years ago I now work 100% remote.
I spent part of yesterday on Facebook, LOL. I belong to some decor groups and had posted a pic of our gate on one of them. The page doesn't get a lot of activity of people posting stuff, so I thought I would participate. I sure wasn't expecting 180 likes and tons of comments, LOL. It was very nice and of course I had to reply to them all. And then one person asked to see more pics of the house, so I added several from inside and the back of the house, which then generated more comments. One person asked if I had an Instagram page to follow for my decor idea. I was like umm...no...I have been following pages and Pinterest to get ideas, never thought anyone would want mine! LOL.
I ordered another chair to match the one I got for the loft sitting area. After getting the chair, little coffee table and loveseat it looks off balance on the one side. The chair was about $5 cheaper than the first one I ordered. I keep checking on that large picture frame I want. Ugh. It's still not been on sale again, like it was when I first found it, though I see the "extra handling UPS Covid fee" went down from $95 to $87. Big whoop. When I was in the city on Saturday I did stop at Ross to see what they had for decor. DD had given me a gift certificate for there. I didn't find anything I really liked. I almost bought a throw blanket for the loft, at only $10 but it wasn't really what I wanted, I decided after debating myself on it. I think I want something more textured than plush looking. Mostly, I'm just tired of looking at stuff online. I need a break from it.
I called my mom again this morning and did one more reminder that her rent payment will be coming out of her account automatically. She seemed to remember/understand. I'm sure once we get past this month, next month will go easier for her to remember. Her apartment manager sent out an email to family yesterday saying that they had an almost 100% # of residents get the first round of the vaccine. Their plan is to get activities and partial dining room use back up and running on the 12th of this month. I know Mom is looking forward to getting busy doing stuff, again. Our county is down to 3 active cases and seems to be hovering around that number the past couple of weeks.
I just made my first ride on my bike down to the mailbox. There were 2 small packages in my mail - fit perfect in my front basket haha! Dh opened the gate for me and was waiting until I got back through to close it, he was laughing so hard. I need a bell! LOL.
Well, the sky has quickly changed to clouds so rain must be on it's way.
