Oh, it's so cold! I went over to where Bernadette was shivering at a little craft faire, and spent $5 on the raffle (where I got a pack of chocolate-dipped pretzels) and $10 at Bernadette's for some little ornaments to give the people at the Tuesday breakfasts. Then back home to watch television and putter around here.
The gardeners managed to fill my bin again with leaves, from the front yard. In fact, they took some with them. I didn't police the yard, too cold and with the leaves all over I couldn't have found the messes anyway. Now my leaf bin is piled high, so I have no idea what will happen next week.
They were just leaving as Gary drove up. He was able to install the new doorknob in about 15 minutes, and then stood talking to me about his wife for another half hour, so I was right. He ended up thanking me for letting him help me.
Then I went out again looking for keys. I'd hoped to get dinosaurs but had to settle for an Air Force pattern. Oh, well. At least the people I give them to will know it's mine.
Then I went back to the craft fair to give Bernadette back her ornament box but they were finishing their early pack up. She only sold $50 worth, which about recouped her expenses for the turtle fudge but not all. She'll try again next week.
