Grandgirls! Bank! Podcast! 4.13.21

Tim A. Cummins @ 10:02 pm  

Start of my week with the grandgirls. What a blessing!

We stopped on the way home for some nature observations. Turtles on a log and a magnolia flower.

Studied Spanish.

The girls helped me pump up the tires on my Gorilla Cart. We stopped by Ingles on the way home to pick up some distilled water as well as fruits and vegetables. The water was heavy so I used my cart. I’m always teaching them something useful, like how tires and compressors work.

And how much easier it is to use a cart rather than carry stuff!

I let the kids pick out the pieces of corn that we cooked.

My tax guy told me I needed a couple of documents to finish my taxes. Still working on it. Called Ameriprise today.

My azaleas have been stunning this year.

Another beautiful day.

I finally got Everly to let me trim her toe nails. That was a job!

They know the Tooth Fairy. I told them there was also a Toe Nail Fairy that left money under their pillow after they got their nails cut. The Toe Nail Fairy cut their nails when they were asleep. Everly’s response? “I’m afraid of the Toe Nail Fairy.” I told her that I was the Toe Nail Fairy. She was like, “What?!” The stuff I make up.

I bought this beautiful miniature orchid today when we got the fruit and vegetables. So beautiful!

The girls enjoy playing with Playdough. I liked this little man by Penelope.

Went to the mission to check on the kids. Hardly any homework these days, especially since most of my kids are going to physical school two days a week. I still go by all their apartments and check on them and see how everyone is doing.

Then to my office to check on the mail and my Ficus. Such an outpouring of love financially for the situations we have been facing: especially Covid and the septic tank repair.

Deposited checks.

Had a good chat with my treasurer Jon Paul. He’s been having a rough time physically lately.

Also called my Mom to check on her.

Released a new episode of Verbal Surgery called “Fact Axe.” So good.

My poison ivy has still been bad. I’ve changed strategies now and instead of Aloe Vera I’m using Calamine lotion. Seems to be more effective.
