Was at my BIL & SIL in RB two days after second eye surgery, wondering if I should find another place to stay as they were having their hardwood floors redone, and my Sean called. He asked if I could come up to his place in Vancouver, WA and house sit for him while he is managing a big build project in Arlington.
Willie and I packed up and headed North bright and early Sunday before last. It was a fast, easy eight hour drive even with the stops for Willie, and gas.
We have settled in, though Willie has gone walkabout twice. Thank goodness for the GPS tracker and kind neighbors.
I've been having more fun! Sean told me to do what ever I wanted with the yard and house! He may be rethinking that this week when he gets home, as several shrubs have disappeared into the yard waste bin, and even more have been pruned within an inch of their lives. Flower pots have been planted, weeds pulled, lawn mowed, bark replenished.
In the house it's just been some minor fixits. Sean is such a neat nic you could eat off his garage floor, so there isn't a lot to do. Cleaning windows, slider tracks and lubing them. Need to re screen a couple of windows and a screen door. I have been to all the good hardware stores looking for window screen retainer clips. None of the guys even knew what I was asking for. I take out my phone and show them a photo on Amazon and get: "Well I'll be damned, never heard of them before!" And I'm the Blonde, LOL, I will be ordering them from Amazon.
Next week I fly back down to Cali for the final on the estate, the last eye checkup, and the HS graduation of Marymine's youngest. Sean will drive his pickup down to see the family, and get his trailer with my stuff. We will caravan, his pickup & trailer and my pickup backup here on Sunday after next. I have a buyer for my pickup "Hank" when I get him up here.
Lov'n the weather, cool at night, nice breeze, sunny and warm in the afternoons.
