Saturday&Sunday News.

Boy the weekend just flew by, had a lot of little things to do around here Saturday and the day was done and I was in bed when I remembered I hadn’t posted a Saturday blog, I gave it a big “Oh Well” and decided my train movie and I were staying on in the bed.

Today ( Sunday) Donna and I just sat around after coffee, I went down and washed and painted the cone that I made into my water filter holder white, it holds the whole house filter I have for the fiver, so now one more little thing is taken care of before our trip Thursday. I checked the new batteries and they are fully charged. so aside from some clothes and a trip Wed to the store for some more food we are ready.

Around Noon Donna’s Brother Pat called and said they were on the way to meet us at the Restaurant. So we headed over there.

We had a great time and stayed until 03:00PM when they had to leave for there trip home to Cincinnati OH. Good food and conversation, and Kathy is doing well in her battle with cancer, good news all around.

When we got home Donna said to look out at the bird feeder, We have a birdhouse that some sparrows are nesting in. Another bird landed on it’s room to the dismay of the sparrow, don’t know what kind for sure , but it may be a female cardinal.

That’s about it for today, hope everyone had a great weekend. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.
