Learning New Things

I am still in Gig Harbor, Washington helping my daughter, Sarah, after her foot surgery.  This has been a few days of learning.

Keto Energy or Excited Energy

I feel like I really did a lot of today. I just seemed to have so much energy. I know I do have more energy, since I started on this life change.
I started the day off checking my email. Then off to clean the bathroom. I got the towels washed, counter, toilet, and tub cleaned. Then I did the floors.

I knew the boys wouldn’t clean it while I am in Gig Harbor, WA taking care of my daughter, Sarah, after her foot surgery.

What is that Buzzing?

Yesterday as my son and I were driving down the road in his work truck we started hearing this buzzing noise.  We are checking everything in the truck.  Nothing is buzzing there.  We check our phones and nothing.  My son says it sounds like it is coming from the back seat.  He has all his tools and things from different jobs back there.  He starts to look back there, I am driving just to let you know he did not look while he was driving.  Then he finds it. A bunch of old smoke detectors he took out of a house and replaced with new ones.  He starts pulling out the batteries.  Finally, after the 4th one he makes the noise stop.  He has opened the back window in his truck and it really smokes when a stop light, so the smoke came in the back window.  Who would have thought that would have made it go off.  We laughed all the way home.

It is always nice to enjoy a good laugh.

Beer Tasting

As the day went on our sun started to get covered by clouds.  As the people arrived we were deciding where to have the beer tasting, inside or outside.  We finally decided on eating inside and drinking by the fire pit.

I took my brisket off the pit. It had been smoking for 7 to 8 hours.  It looked beautiful.

Rain or Not I’m Ready!

I got up this morning and got my BBQ pit going.  I am cooking a brisket for our Beer Tasting this evening. It takes me all day to smoke my brisket.  If I say so myself it is really good.  I know I have several friends that think so too.  Or maybe they are just being nice.  Oh well I like it.

What We Do For Our Kids!

So, yesterday I am getting busy on my checklist and my son comes in the room. He says, “Hey Mom, the guy I’m working for needs someone to clean his condo. You want to do it for $20 an hour?” I said, “Sure why not.” My son tells me he just put new carpet in, so I didn’t have to worry about that.  He needs someone to clean the kitchen cabinets, bathrooms, clean the floors.  I thinking well that won’t be bad.  Boy, was I wrong!

 

Those rooms were horrible.  I started downstairs yesterday.  We only worked for a few hours because my son had to go to Home Depot. Today we were there from 8 to 5 but we had to leave for a while, so Dusty could go look at another job.  I still have at least another day or day and a half before I am done.  Even the washer and dryer were filthy.  I have to say though it has been fun working with my son again.  I haven’t done that since he was a kid. This time though he was the boss and not me.  I think I will be making a little more money than I thought I would make.

Well life is always good when you get to spend time with your loved ones whether it is working together or just visiting.

 

Greek Festival in Anchorage, Alaska

We didn’t get to go camping this weekend due to having too much to do at home.  We decided to go to the Greek Festival at Holy Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church. It is held every year.  They have been doing this for many years and the money goes towards finishing their church. It is nice to see how much they got done from year to year. David has been going to the festival since they started building the church years ago.

It was once again a rainy day for the festival. People didn’t care they come for the wonderful Greek food, the children dancing, the music and to look at the church as it changes from year to year.

This is such a big event in Anchorage that they hired the police to direct traffic and the parking attendants were great. David even went and let the information booth know how well he thought they were doing.
