Not much has changed

This past week has been pretty much the same as the week before!  Jim worked a few days, we ate out a couple times and worked a bit inside and out.

A couple days ago Jim pressure washed the roof.  We're under a oak tree, pin oak I believe, which means it's constantly dropping leaves.  Even with the awning out we sweep the patio a couple times a day.

Yesterday I had a doctors appointment (VA) at 0730 and we got up at 10 minutes to 0700!  Snatched some coffee and granola bars before we left and made it barely in time.  This was my first time meeting with the nurse and doctor so it was a long visit.  Jim waited patiently. 

Afterwards we made a run to Home Depot to pick up some PVC pipe and fittings.  I bought another window box and some seeds.  Then on to Walmart for household items.

Finally, time for lunch!  We stopped at Popeye's for some comfort food....LOL  Jim had some chicken, biscuit, red beans and rice while I had red beans and rice and slaw.  We shared a lemonade.

Back home we put items away and changed clothes, Jim took a nap.  He was up to early!

Afternoon found us working outside.  Jim took his PVC pipe and started making tiny work horses....for the slide toppers.  It will hold them up and keep rain from pooling.  We sure don't want to raise mosquitoes while we're here!  And it should help with leaves piling up.  I watered all my plants and potted up the window box with radish and scallions.  I'll have to take pictures so you can see how the garden is growing!
