Domestic – ness..

A Noun, meaning to do or be domestic (duh!). Straight from the Lime Guy Dictionary. But really, just some more catching up on the mundane and not so mundane day-to-day.  Now that the first sentence has sent the slackers off to click Like and read another far more exciting blog, we can get down to the domestic – ness of the day.

July 28 was DS1’s birthday. He turned 25. I did not receive an email from my insurance agent telling me that his car insurance had gone down. Funny how that happens. There will be a picture or two down below from the cake ceremony. You know, where everybody sings and blows out the candles.

Yesterday DS3 and I picked up the washer and dryer that we bought at a garage sale last month. The garage sale was in the “better ” part of town. The family had sold the 5 bedroom house and was moving to a slightly smaller, but brand new house. The new house had a washer and dryer already, so the LG front loaders (4 years old) were expendable. We bought them and the family upright freezer. The freezer replaced our freezer which was in the house when we bought the house in 1987. It was time.  We put the washer and dryer in the back of my mini van. When we got them home we had to remove some trim and a railing to get them into the cellar. This morning at 6:45 am (I could not sleep),I was in Home Depot buying the necessary parts to hook up the gas dryer. At this point today, we have done about 8 loads of laundry. Things got a little backed up after our old dryer died a week ago. Pictures below.

Today around noon time DS3 texted me to say that his boss was bringing a load of stone to the house to put down in the driveway. It was a good thing I was working from home today. They dropped off the 2320 lbs of red stone and went back to work. I started raking the stone out at lunch time when DS3 came home for the day and helped me out. He likes to work (or at least he works without complaining). Pictures below.

Tonight in place of lacrosse (the Thursday night season is over) we (DW and I) went to “Restorative Yoga” The yoga studio has lots of props. Blankets, pillows, bolsters and stuff. We used all these props in this very slow-moving class. I think we did six posses in an hour. Everything was quiet, slow and restorative. This was my first time doing this kind of yoga. My DW has now taken three of these classes. She was less lost than I was. I’m not sure if the class is for me. I will go back in two weeks when I am home and looking for something to do on a Thursday night.

Garden? Nope, I did not pick vegetables today. It rained off and on. The really only dry time was during the raking out of the rocks. I will find time tomorrow.

Pictures, of course!  Enjoy and thank you for reading.

Namaste
