Old Things and New Things......
Another project for me to do in the future. My grandmother Brooks' walnut dining room table is moved and ready to be refinished. I received the table as a teenager from my grandmother as a gift for all the things that I did for her. I painted her house and some rooms inside of her house. I really never thought of it until later that she wanted me to have it for payment for the deeds. My brother was moving to California and gave her a chrome kitchen set with chairs and she was so happy with that. The table was disassemble and hidden in an upstairs closet until I was ready to take it. My grandmother had a brother that liked to beg her old stuff from her and she said I was to get it out of the house as soon as I could.
If you have ever grown the larger sunflowers you remember how fast they develop. I think there are 7 or 8 of them growing in a row.
I still have a three things to get planted but my emphasis this week is to be at the old house. As long they seem to be surviving in their pots I won't worry about them.
The dumpster that I am using at the old place is leaving the property tomorrow. I won't tell you how many of them that I have had but I have reached a point that Wednesday will be its removal date. Today I will do the last minute panic things that I can get into it before it leaves. I still have my wonderful white truck that I can fill up and take things to the landfill, but I really won't need to do that for a while. It is suppose to get very hot today so I will leave early this morning and come home early. I watered the flowers last night because of the forecast today. I lost a row of petunias next to the house as no watering kept them alive during such high temps last week. I might replace them if there are still petunias out there anywhere to buy.
Thank you for stopping by today. Stay safe and cool please.
