Saturday/Sunday Notes.

Saturday we were up about 0600AM and had our coffee, Donna rested up a little. It was sunny but cool and Adam waited until about 1030AM before he saw his friends behind us on the trampoline so he was out, except for a quick stop back for a peanut butter sandwich lunch, he was out playing all day.Grandpa checked the flat tire on his bike and couldn’t find a leak, I replaced the valve stem innards, and tightened a few loose bolts that they didn’t tighten when it was assembled.When he came back at supper time from his friends he took it for a test ride and said it was fine.
Adams’  Dad took him out to supper for some Dad alone time. He was really happy with this as he got to choose where to eat. He made it Taco Bell.
I stayed home and had Tovars since Donna was at the restaurant. but the forecast said
Sunday we were up at 06:00AM again and had our coffee, It was sunny and about 37 but the forecast said there was a possibility of snow showers, so far it is still sunny and blue skies.
Adam said he will wait until 1130AM before he calls his friends to see if they can play outside, that way he is sure they will be home from church. I am glad he enjoys outside play and doesn’t plant himself in front of the TV for xbox games all day. He will play when he  is waiting to go out or after he gets home, but given the choice he will go outside to play first.
Donna is doing some laundry and just trying to rest up again. she is starting to look better and like her old self again.
We should be getting past the heavy freezes here in a couple of weeks, even though the tech said he checked all the systems, I want to do it myself before we leave in April. He had the water pump, sinks, and furnace, plus the converter removed while he was replacing the floor, so all the electrical and water has to be checked and the furnace has to be turned on to make sure everything is working. If I’m lucky I’ll have two weeks where I can have some water in it to test everything. Not worried about the tanks as they each have a gallon of pink stuff in them , but I can put a small electric heater in front of the sink with the cabinet doors open and that should prevent any other freezing, if they predict over night freezing temps. March generally starts the slow warm up around here.
Not much else going on around here, hope everyone is  having a good weekend. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna..
