WINTER CLEAN UP

WINTER IS COMING
SUNDAY
SEPTEMBER 24 2017

Got up at 7:00AM.

Made latte for hubby. Hubby made eggs for dogs.

Hubby sat and watched his show on Streaming TV - Hot Rod's Roadkill. 

Then we loaded the dogs into the white Dually at 9:30 and drove to Farragut Park.

Went walking down by Willow Day Use Area. Lots of new smells. I loved walking down by the water. It was a warm day, about 47° but we still had to wear our hoodies.

Wilson stuck his head out of the window going down & back.

We stopped at the Latte stand in Athol to pick up another latte for hubby. He got an awful tasting Dirty Blonde - cinnamon, caramel, & brown sugar. 

At home, we unloaded dogs.

Turkeys were here eating. 

Hubby went to J. Wilson's at 10AM with Mark to pick up the forklift that the guy was supposed to have fixed.

When he returned, we started to clean up the yard.

I gave the deer more grain and spread some on the ground for the turkeys.

Swept the patio. Put away the rocking chairs & deck chairs down below the deck.

Stored the bridge in the garage. Put the riding lawnmower in front of the Jeep. Put the push lawnmower in the garage.

Cleaned up the weeds in the back under the deck/stairs.

I picked up dog poo.

I have to find the cover for the Harley. I think it is downstairs.

Stopped to have lunch at 1PM. By 2PM, we were all done.

Hubby went inside to rest his leg. Elevated.

We watched his automotive shows for a while.

Then we took the dogs for another walk in the park at 5:30PM. Walked around the Waldron Campground where it looks like they are doing sewer and water work. Have lots of pipe, markers, and equipment.

Drove home, unloaded dogs.

Hubby drove customer's truck and I took the Jeep to the Post Falls shop to drop off the truck. Drove behind some fucking idiot on Hwy 53 & McGuire Road; he kept trying to turn left and slowed down to 25 mph. Idiot that did not know WHERE he was going. We could not pass him, had to follow him all the way to the traffic light at the old church and he STILL signaled both left & right. Fucking old guy that should not be driving. Kept trying to turn left and slowed down to 25 mph.

At the shop, Hubby had me jump in the truck with him and see if I could find where the noise was coming from, we drove down the interstate and I could still not figure it out. The noise has stymied hubby.

Hubby drove to CDA on the interstate, we washed the Jeep at Metro Express.


Some idiots tried to pull out into us at the Texas Roadhouse parking lot. Drove to Fred Meyer in the Jeep as hubby wanted a peach pie and I was too tired to make one.


Then we drove home on Hwy 95.

At home, we were exhausted. Went to bed at 11:00PM.

HUBBY AT SHOP

SATURDAY
9-23-2017

Got up when Wilson started barking at something outside. It was turkeys!

Turkeys were back again. Bad cat Joey tried to menace them, but they hung around for quite a while. We closed the dog door and I called Joey along with Scaredy inside. They came inside quickly. They listen to Mommy!

I made lattes.

Hubby made left overs & eggs for dogs.

He sat on the couch with his leg elevated and ate breakfast.

I cleaned up, started the dishwasher. Started washing clothes.

We took dogs to walk in Farragut Park around 10AM. Down by the Disc Golf area. Checked to see how they are coming on the Zipline Course. They moved everything up by the bathrooms for construction. Hopefully, they will get it done this year before snow.

On the way back, hubby had to stop for a latte. He got an Amaretto and made me get a Pumpkin Cheesecake.

Stopped for milk at Lil Town.

Waited for 2 trains crossing at the RxR tracks.

Picked up mail at home.

Hubby fixed the leaking hose. He turned off the water for the season.

Hubby left for the shop at 1PM.

I went out and put peaches & grain for the deer & moose.

Hubby picked up Beebo at 2PM after stopping to talk to Joe Holman.

Hubby worked until 6PM, then came back home.

He was too tired to take the dogs for another walk.

We stayed home and watched TV. Went to bed at 10PM.

FRIDAY

Got up this morning. It was nice outside. Sun was shining.

Hubby rested his leg on the couch while I made breakfast. I made lattes. Made eggs for hubby & dogs.

Turkeys were here this morning. 

Neighbor Dan Wurster who lives behind us came over to pay for his Storage of his Camper this winter. Wilson started barking while he walked up the driveway. He stayed to talk for quite a while.

We took dogs for walk in the park around the Brig. It was cool to start out with, but we made the entire walk and it got warm.

Came back home. By then it was time to eat as we were both hungry. Stopped at Country Boy to have lunch. Left the dogs in the truck because it was cool. Rolled the windows down.



Saw Richie Cole and Buzzy Booten in the diner. Richie came over to say hi and sat with us for a while.

Then hubby went to the restroom while I paid. We drove home.

Dropped off dogs. Then hubby went down to the shop to find parts while I changed.

Drove to Richie's to drop off parts. I sat in the truck and waited for over 30 minutes.

Then we drove to Hayden and dropped KR"s makeup off at her work. She gave us a tour again so hubby could see where she worked.

We got a latte at Jitterz. Drove to Golden Glo Espresso for hubby's latte. Met Kevin & Leslie at the stand.


Drove to Horizon and made a deposit. Hubby went inside while I waited in the truck. He saw a girl taking in Espressos and said hello to her.

We drove to pick up a case of peaches and 6 Pink Lady apples at the Poteet Stand on Government Way.

Drove to Columbia Bank to pick up copies of checks that hubby forgot to copy. It took us forever to wait as the girls were incompetent and could not locate anything on the archives.

Then we got gasoline at Costco. Parked at Costco. Returned our tuna. Some lady started talking to us when we were in the return line. She was bringing back an apple pie. We purchased some more groceries.



By that time, it was 4PM. We drove home. Exhausted.

Picked up our mail at home. Unloaded everything from the store.

I went outside to give more grain to the deer/moose.

I made breakfast for dogs & hubby and lattes.

Stopped in Rathdrum to get latte at Jitterz.

Then we took hubby into the Immedia Care in Post Falls. Had to wait for quite a while to see Dr Winter. Idiot receptionist had no clue what she was doing. Seems like more and more people don't do their jobs well.

Hubby called me and talked to me all the way that he drove home. Hubby got home late at 8:30PM.

He parked the Dually close to the door and hobbled up the steps. He had slipped off the running board of the truck as he got in the cab. The running board had scraped his left leg. He thought maybe he had broken it as it was swollen up and hard as rock.

Hubby took off his pants. We wrapped it up and put ice on it. Hubby sat on the couch with the leg elevated for the rest of the night.
