Sunday the 9th, was a big day. I take that back. It was a huge day.
Kalissa and I took the boys to church. During services we heard that the lady who went to our church who acted much like a grandma to Kalissa had been moved to the nursing home. We decided after church to bring her flowers and the church bulletin.
We had a nice visit. We kept it short as Carver was antsy but it was so nice….and short visits are okay. She had heard that Kramer had passed away and sent along her condolences. I am so glad we went.
From there…Home. Kalissa and I decided to go ahead with plans for the garage sale for the weekend. It will be Thursday and Friday 4-7 and then Saturday morning. We are known for our EPIC garage sales and hope this one will be no different.
It started with LOTS of garage cleaning. Our garage had gotten to be a holding bin of unfinished projects. The last six month here, Kramer didn’t do anything in the garage. That means none of the old projects got refinished and none of the new projects (yes he bought more while he was sick) got touched. Going in the garage was pretty depressing. It was a museum of good intentions. It made all of sad to see…it made us feel like Kramer lived an unfinished life. I started making decisions….what did I want to try to fix myself? What could I fix with a little help that I wanted to keep? Everything else was getting sold on the garage sale.
It took a couple hours but WOW. My garage was actually nice and more spacious than ever.
After that, Craig said, “Let’s get those plants planted.” Well, who am I to not take help so…we tackled the plants.
We got several outside plants from the funeral. Kramer and I hadn’t landscaped or planted plants the front side on the house to the south. We weren’t sure what we wanted and we are kind of “do it as we can afford it people”. So this waited. Well we got in PERFECT plants…hydrangeas and bridal wreath spirea.
I set the plants out where I wanted them and Craig went to work. He’s such a trooper.
Of course little can be done without around here that Carver isn’t a part of!!
This hydrangea totally perked up after a good soaking!
Kalissa grabbed some really cute pictures of Carver. Aren’t they cute?? Continue reading
