My daughter and new son-in-law are in the process of moving across country to live in Texas where he will be a chef at a fancy hotel. They've packed up their tiny house/bus, dog and horse, and are slowly working their way south. I hope this is a great start to their married lives together. Even though I lived where they're going in my twenties, I still worry about them living in the land of tornados, flash floods, and rattle snakes.

I am back to my old tricks, home improvements. It's also for the usual reason, people are coming over. Usually company would just require cleaning, but these will be work colleagues of M's, so the house needs to look good too. This week I moved all the downstairs furniture, multiple times, so I could steam clean all the carpets downstairs. I miss our old hardwoods. Then I hauled 40 bags of mulch to clean up the beds on the front lawn. I haven't been this exhausted in a long time.
I also sanded and painted horseshoes and cleaned up the horseshoe pits in case anyone would want to play. While I was at it, I touched up the paint on the patio furniture.
Then, just because I didn't have enough to do, and because this went with spiffing up the property, I noticed the finish on the front door was worn off, exposing the wood, and just generally looking run down, so of course I felt he need to re-stain it. I have also found some time to continue working on my book, and somehow lose a few pounds without even trying. Overall, I'd say this has been a busy and productive week.

We drove an hour and a half this morning so I could attend my first Bernie Sanders' rally in Rochester, NY. There were easily over 200 people there. There was singing, speeches, and inspiration. I also made phone calls for the campaign last week. Let me tell you, there are some really angry and nasty people in the state of South Carolina. Anyway, I don't know if my guy will make it past the primary, but I have to try to change the system however I can. It was nice to be among like-minded people for a change.
