I was home today.
It felt good.
I checked in with Mom and Dad and they were good.
I spent the morning at the grands' Grandparent's Day.
and Everett's preschool
had a puppet show
at the Chatauqua Building at the park.
Aubrie said it was at the
(She has a little Grandma Toots in her.)
They rode the buses there and
me and the other grandma, Ruby
They were very excited.
I may have had a raisin stuck in my teeth.
Odd since I hate them and never eat them.
What in the world.
Is that a filling?
Someone call a dentist.
Perhaps it is a fly.
Yeah, that is a better option?
Let's go with a flaw in the camera lens.
I came home and fed the men crockpot stew.
The girls stopped in to work on Ethel Edith stuff
and I got some baby love.
I got some Caroline time too.
I started meat in the pot for supper.
I had big plans to finish things
I wanted to do.
Put out pumpkins on the porches.
Pick through junk for some old keys
I know I have had for years
for a necklace project.
Stu asked me to watch a grain bin
that was drying corn
and then transferring that corn
through a tube system
to another bin.
I had to listen for the loud stirring noise to stop.
Then, when it had, time it and check it again and again.
I checked the level by banging on the side of it
and listening for the sound of where it was inside.
Luckily, I have ears like a bat.
Large and hair-less?
No silly, highly sensitive.
It took several cycles of this process.
After the level was at a designated spot, I shut it down.
The fans are ginormous and very loud.
It isn't a bit scary.
I am trained.
I flip switches daily.
No "clap on" for me.
I got it shut down and reported back that
everything was a-ok. and
I had shut the transfer part down.
Stuart called back
to have me check the fan to make sure
the heat was off.
Back out across the lot.
Yup, it is off.
I get busy
and he calls again.
Can you see what the gas level in the tank
for the dryer is?
Back across the lot to check that.
He called again.
I told him
Hey, I didn't stay home today
so I could be the Bin Bit**.
shut cracked him up.
He thinks I am funny.
Blinded by love, the man is.
Eventually I got everything
I wanted to get done, all finished up.
All in all, a great day.
