Road Trip - Day Two

Thursday was a really nice day - not too cold, not too hot.

I ate a side salad with bleu cheese dressing and a cup of chicken noodle soup for lunch. Then I did some shopping before returning to work.

I left work at 4:00 p.m. (instead of my usual 4:30) and picked Amanda up from her work. We thought we might beat "some" of the rush hour traffic. And it worked.

We got to Ypsilanti in about 20 minutes. She paid the guy, he signed over the title and we headed back. She went back to get some things out of her old car (she left it at work) and I headed home.

I changed clothes after treating the cat and checked on my gardens. Everything was still damp, except for the vegetable garden. So, I ran the hose out and put the square head sprinkler on it. I turned on the hose, set the timer for an hour and then took some pictures.

I shut off the hose and then I ate the last of the ham steak and some beans for dinner.

I got a text around 8:00 p.m. from Amanda, offering to take me to dinner to thank me for driving her. She was at her parents who live nearby. I told her I already ate, so she suggested dessert. I explained I had my crappy work clothes on, so she suggested we go to the the Dairy Freeze (or whatever its called) just down to the street and get some ice cream. So, I agreed.

She got a strawberry shake and I got a cup of butter pecan ice cream. We ate them sitting on one of the picnic tables outside in the warn night air.

Back, home, I took her inside to show her the progress on the toy box. She thanked me again and said if there was anything she could do for me to just ask. I said, "There is one thing. Could you help me put the shade back on the light in my bedroom?" So, she climbed the two steps on the ladder and I held it up (standing on the bed) while she screwed it on. Mission accomplished!

After she left, I decided not to watch TV and just went to bed.
