First, I kind of woke up in a bored mood. So, I decided the only thing to be done would be to get busy with a project. As a kid I remember telling my Mom I was bored, and she would always reply that she would find me something to do. That always meant chores and I would quickly say no thanks and run off with a feeling of relief.
The first thing I did was to drive way across town to the shopping mall where the Grandson had been taking his driving lessons. He was three driving classes shy of completion so I had to go and get an extension to get him back on track.
On the way back, I swung by the school just in time to pick up the Grandson since it was just starting to sprinkle. He was all excited because he gets to MC a fashion show at the high school tomorrow. One of the local Men's Clothing companies is putting on the show. I’m not sure if it has to do with prom in a couple of months or if it is trying to get seniors in the business frame of mind. Since Grandson has been so active in Advanced Drama the teacher asked him to do it. He is really having a lot of fun with drama this year. I’m sorry to know that his teacher will be leaving at the end of this year. Hope the new teacher is in tune with the kids like this one is.
After I dropped the Grandson off, I stopped by Walmart and bought two new bird feeders. I dropped my red feeder last weekend and broke the plastic squirrel baffle. When I got home it occurred to me I should have glued the old one back together. So I found the instant glue and put it back together - although not exactly perfect. I think it will still keep the squirrels off, I just hope the birds don’t balk at the smell of the glue. I’ll see how it works before I decide whether to return the new feeders. I’d keep the new feeders but then I’d have to buy even more bird food. I get a lot of pleasure from listening and looking at the birds but the bird feed does add up.
When I finally got upstairs I decided I couldn’t look at the mess in the grand girls’ corner anymore. The problem is that (1) I buy them too much and (2) that my apartment is so small that anything extra really makes it looked cramped. I left the basket of princess items, the basket of purses and the suitcase with the baby doll and doll clothes. I also kept all the colors, pens, papers, etc., that the Artist uses for her creations. Everything else I moved to the garage. I have several shelves down there and I put everything out so that it can be seen and taken out to be played with. Since the weather will be getting nicer and they will be playing outside more, I thought why wait. I must have made a dozen trips upstairs and down.
I brought some of my scarves upstairs and photographed them for my scarf knitting blog. I have a dresser in the garage where I keep the extra sheets and winter items. So another trip or two up and down stairs.
If I had had a t'do list, it would be t'done.
