Jim called our handyman and he'll be here as soon as he can find someone to help him get this machine out of the box and on to the table. Meantime I'll read the manual before I get to other things.
This morning I busied myself with unglamorous household and garden chores; and the rest of the day is going to be designated to sit down jobs. Three hours yesterday on those hard Costco, Lowe's hardware and nursery concrete floors, then another couple of hours unpacking the car and planting a lot of the perennials and annuals I bought, was enough to do in this cranky hip.
All that activity, then a double margarita to celebrate Cinco De Mayo, added up to a great night's sleep. I was out cold by 8 pm and didn't get up till 6am which is amazing, since 6 hrs of sleep is my norm.
Time to see if I can make sense of this pugmill manual, redo my veggie garden plot plans, and sgraffito a couple of pots - all good sit down jobs geared to quiet down this cranky hip.
