Two weeks of pneumonia, missed work, no gym have made me very off-balance!
And now it's vacation time, but I have no money and nowhere to go.
So let's see what mischief I can think of doing!
October 12 & 13 - spouse went to visit his mother & brother upstate; I stayed home with the pussies. I knitted, I baked, I listened to music, I watched crap on youtube on my laptop, I took much needed naps.
October 14 - I went to the office for 3 hours while spouse did some outdoor work with his cousin's help. Due to the pneumonia, I missed 5 days and have much backlog. I managed to clear 90% away yesterday. Came home and relaxed the day away.
October 15 - spouse's 54th birthday! I baked him a birthday cake, took him out to lunch, took a nap, went to the gym, did some reading, listened to music. He planted a japanese red maple tree. and it's raybeard's birthday too!

October 16 - spouse went to his cousin's house to help him clear away stuff from 2 dead relatives. I made slow cooker (crock pot) lasagna, did a load of laundry, went grocery shopping, emptied the recycle bin, did some reading, listened to music. AND there's a new boyfriend to add to the mix; go say hello to randy in NE!
October 17 - my 21st anniversary with spouse. Slept in late today, did a load of dishes, made quiche for dinner, exchanged small gifts, did some reading and knitting, went to the gym, listened to music. spouse did some outdoor work. AND I wore a purple shirt today, cause bullying on ANY level blows goats. It's bob & carlos' anniversary too!
still life with wine and peppers (spouse took this one)
October 18 - Indian food (small buffet) for lunch. Did a load of laundry, took a nap, paid bills, did some reading, listened to music. Spouse planted a second japanese red maple tree and continued his outdoor work.
October 19 - went to the gym, picked up a prescription, took a nap, did some reading and knitting, baked a chocolate cake for tonight's dessert, listened to music. Then I put my local tax dollars to work: the township was sponsoring a mobile shredding event, so I took over a copy paper box full of sensitive crap. They were also collecting electronics for green-cycling, but I didn't have any of those. Spouse cut the grass for the last time this season, mulching the leaves as he went along.
October 20 - read the sunday paper, did some knitting and reading, made cornbread as a side to tonight's dinner (bbq pork chops), listened to music, took a nap. spouse did more outdoor work. I have a heating pad on my left ankle (arthritis).
And that's what I did on my autumn vacation. (curtseys)
