My upstairs neighbor brought me a pretend poinsettia yesterday. It has that fake Christmas store smell, but fortunately, Giorgio started eating the pretend leaves right away, so I was able to put it in the storeroom. I asked Luke about the lights, and he said he just hadn't had any help. I must have spurred him to call because his son-in-law came over last night and helped him put them up.
I've been aphasic for a couple of weeks now, not worse than usual, but longer than usual. Friday I told Spirit I was going to get some seedbeads when I meant birdseed and when I got to the store, I couldn't find the words for what I wanted (hulled sunflower seeds). Fortunately, they have them piled at the side and I pointed to the right one. Someone always carries it out for me and I back my van up right in front of the store and leave it unlocked. So I told the guy that it was the white van, it was unlocked, and he'd have to pull hard. Well, he pulled and said it was locked, so I pulled and it opened. I told him the van was 20 years old and the handle wasn't bad enough to replace it yet. He said what good condition it was in and I told him it only had 112K miles on it.
We have blue skies again today, although it's a little colder -- 55 for a high. I'm going to take the birdseed out to the porch and fill the metal container soon.
