I am hoping that we (meaning Ray and myself) can get to our garage and figuring out what we can put up for sale on the following Saturday when we will have a communitywide garage sale in our community. We have boxes (up high on shelves in the garage) we haven't seen the contents in years - much of it though happens to be some toys (which we saved...such good toys...figured we'd have grandchildren one day...ha!) and also some toys of my daughter's - things she was reluctant to part with many years ago - so we humoured her and kept most of it...though not all of it was I thinking worth keeping! However, she isn't so attached to these things now...so.... ! But I know other boxes will reveal some 'treasures' we ourselves kept. I am keen to clear stuff out. But it will be a fairly big job...not keen to do that in a way.
Ray still does have the commitment to go to the train club and help run the trains for the public to ride, as he usually does now on Sundays. So our garage work will have to be done mostly on Saturday.
In the meantime, we saw our daughter's apartment this week when we transported a shelf unit she wanted, in our minivan. She invited us in to see her place, even though I think she was still wanting to fix it up more so before showing it to us. But since we were there and bringing a shelf unit, she did kind of have to let us in! It's an old house and she's got the basement apartment...which the remodeling job on the place looks a bit amateurish..home-made...sort of. It's not the worst, but oh why didn't she agree to have the carpets replaced? Or if not that, to have them cleaned as the landlord suggested? Maybe she will take him up on that, but why didn't she when the place was still empty? Oy! The windows could use a washing...though luckily a few of those basement windows are surprisingly large (good as an escape hatch if she ever should need it...I do worry about fires - you never know). Her place is in a nice part of the downtown area...near a nice street with lots of shops and there's even a large chain grocery store within walking distance. Some day that house she's in won't be there...they will tear it down and replace it with some sort of apartment complex, if possible. But for now...well, she's happy to have a place of her own... old and shabby as it may be...but she's painted some of the walls already to freshen up the place....now if she'd only have something done for those carpets!
