Mondays are blah–even though I’ve been retired for years–Mondays are still blah in my humble opinion. It was me doing the “honey do’s” on this past Monday–I stained some door trim and re-stained one of the living room beams that had become dusty from all the drywall sanding.
Tuesday we made a trip to Sierra Vista to buy used golf cart tires my ever on the search for a bargain husband found. I needed some groceries and we were also picking up an item for friends with the dang covid. I tried to get a grocery pickup time but there were none available for same day. I hope to not have to go inside Walmart in Sierra Vista again until I’m vaccinated!!! Everywhere I turned today there were people wearing no mask. At Walmart, at Culver’s, at Home Depot. Arizona currently has the highest per-capita rate of new Covid-19 infections, with 785 cases per 100,000 people over the past seven days. That rate not only leads the U.S., but is the highest in the world, according to NBC News data. Not only do friends have Covid, our neighbors are also ill with the virus. Our numbers are increasing daily in this zip code where before the numbers had remained low and steady. Will it ever end?
On Wednesday we made some big changes.
We moved!! Somehow my Cowboy husband and I hauled these two heavy couches from the guest house to the main house living room–we went out the front door of the guest house, into the back of the truck and in the front door of the main house. As you know Bayfield Al–that leather couch is heavy!! In the photo you can see the new to us leather chair we bought and the new rug. The southwest print love seat will move to the porch when that room is finished–it kind of clashes with the new rug!
The guest house has two windows in the living area which face south and we had mini blinds on those windows greatly limiting our view. The living room/dining room of the main house is finished and we decided it was time to move. We’ve been thinking about it and when the new rugs arrived yesterday we made the decision. We now have views in all directions and a very comfortable, beautiful living room. Emmi is not so sure–her bed and toys moved over but she stayed in the guest house for a while.
There were some tense moments this morning as we hung the curtains, drilling into the bricks. My husband is so incredibly handy! Look at what he did with those “free” cabinets we found–
Today was a dark day in the history of our country, a sad day in our country. The Cowboy and I have our opinions and they are private. What went on in our nation’s capitol today should not have happened. And that’s all I will say.
