Hi. Weather is overcast and cool, which beats warm and wet. There are clean-up parties going on around the county--people discarding ruined furniture and appliances, ripping out carpet, sheetrock and insulation. Apparently many vehicles were trashed. The outer communities have many low income residents because the housing is cheaper, and I don't think many of them have much in the way of resources. I already made a donation to the family of the fellow who was swept away. And we will contribute to a community fund for housing and repair.
Dh and I purchased a new dishwasher yesterday, Merry Christmas to us! I think it cost as much as our last refrigerator! It will be a few weeks before it can be installed. We stopped at the pharmacy that does walk in flu and covid shots, but they were short staffed and weren't doing them yesterday.
Dh has been washing dishes by hand, because my cut thumb really hurts, even with a glove. Tonight I am driving down to the big city. Dd has a free hotel room after attending a school board conference. She invited me to come down and we'll go shopping tomorrow. I doubt I will purchase much, but I like to window shop.
Stars, good to read that your hubby's aching didn't last. It cracks me up when people talking about tracking devices, when they carry their phone everywhere. I drew up vaccines for a clinic one day, and I never figure out if the tracking device was already in the syringe or in the vaccine. And how did it fit through that itty bitty needle, lol.
Dianah, I hope you are resting and recovering. Isn't it weird to have a cold? I can't remember the last time I had one, and that is fine with me!
Joe, setting up new computers, like phones, can be a PITA. I can imagine having a good keyboard will make your work go smoother. Ooh, a play, how fun! I thought a spotted an unusual bird on the feeder, but with the binoculars it seems to be a starling who was pigging out and not letting the juncos and chickadees eat too. And I saw a towhee!
I hope everyone is dry and warm!
