A Busy Day At Home

Even though we never left the house except for me going out to the mailbox in the afternoon and taking out the trash in the evening, we had a very busy day at home yesterday.

I started out by answering a bunch of e-mails, including some that apparently came in during our trip that got shuffled to a junk folder. I also deleted some others that were a waste of time, including someone who wanted to buy our motorhome; the motorhome we sold in 2018. He was obviously a scammer because it was a line that is used quite often. He is very interested in buying it, sight unseen, but is out of the country serving with the military. However, he has a friend who will pick it up for him. All he needs is my banking information so he can make a direct deposit, and he is also going to include an extra $5,000, which I will give to his friend in cash to cover his expenses. Yeah, buddy, I’ll jump all over that.

In the past, I have gotten the same response for other things we have advertised for sale, almost word for word, except for the price, including the motorhome, our two Sea Eagle kayaks, one of Miss Terry’s big Glimakra looms, and a powered bed. Who knew so many people serving our country overseas want to buy so many things I have for sale?

With that out of the way, I wrote another chapter in my John Lee Quarrels book and then gave it a quick read-through and made corrections to it.

A while later, our son Travis called to tell me that even though he got stung on the ear by one of the bees while they were harvesting the honey the day before, it was still worth it. This is their first harvest. 32.5 pounds of honey. Travis said there is still more than enough honey in the bottom of the hive to keep the bees happy and healthy.

After making delicious omelets for breakfast, Terry was busy in the garage for most of the day on an assembly project. Once I was done in my office, I spent the rest of the afternoon and early evening out there helping her. We should wrap that up today, and I’ll tell you all about it in tomorrow’s blog.

After dinner it was the same routine as usual for us, watching the national news, then a couple of episodes of season three of The Handmaid’s Tale and the eleven o’clock news, then writing the blog and getting ready for bed. I don’t know where the time went, but it sure went by fast.

And finally, here’s a chuckle to start your day from the collection of funny signs we see in our travels and that our readers share with us.

  1. Going rate at a central FL farmer’s market just went up to $14 (maybe $15) for that size jar of honey. Or, if you’re like me and a good customer who returns the jar, clean, $12 ;o). 30 jars is $450 worth, wow! Love the sunset on your BIG LAKE book. Is it one of your photos?
