Sounds like you got a better place, aside from not having a guest bedroom and bath. If your overnight guests are anything like me, sleeping on the couch would be fine.
The wooded ravine is far more to my taste than a parking area.

I spent the morning weeding veggie and flower gardens, after putting Epsom salt around each tomoto plant.

My one bedroom has 2 beds in it- Dawn's full size bed, which was Mary's, and a twin size hospital bed, which was offered to me by the lady who lived here ( It didn't help her, and her Son and Grandson didn't really want to move anyway).
I don't use either bed. I sleep in one of the 2 recliners I have in the living room, where I also have my desk, computers, and TV with TV table, along with two 2 drawer file cabinets.

They say we may have bad weather this afternoon so want to get back home before that.

LFF hang on to that hospital bed! You may need one day but if the recliners work hey don't blame you.

I have acid reflux and sometimes need to sleep with pillows to make head higher. Hospital beds really help. Sometimes wish I had one.

I looked up the hospital bed online- this model runs about $1600-1800. Darn right I'll hold on to it!
Before I even turned the computer on this morning, I took Chipper for a productive walk, went to the pharmacy for test strips, which they were out of, went to save-a-lot, to family dollar, came home and talked with a neighbor, and in doing so, I learned about the latest excitement I'd missed by living at the back of the building. I won't go into details, but it involved a domestic assault, child abduction, and police pursuit.
I've also had breakfast, and baked some boneless chicken thighs for 45 minutes at a preheated 350, resulting in an interior temperature of 160F.

LFF Sending prayers concerning the domestic incident in your building....that can be bad. Hope the child is safe. Let us know please.

They caught the man who killed the Tennessee Patrolman. So sad he was killed....he left behind a wife and young daughter and was only about 30 years old. Why people are so cruel is beyond me!

I enjoyed my Chinese meal. was really good....now will take my blood sugar soon to see if it is too high. I ate a lot of shrimp which should be ok and the green beans and only a small amount of their delicious noodles. Oh yes I had to have one of their stuffed hot peppers!

My day of rest.
I listened to the sermon from the church I used to attend and the Oakwood Strings,
a lovely group playing violins, and another stringed instrument, piano. Very lovely music, all streamed live.
I just finished watching a film based on a true story of two murders in 1991, in Great Britain. The name eludes me already.
Rather cool out today and mosquitoes galore.

The creek has been flowing quite well thanks to excessive rainfall.
Still, the lush growth along the creek edge provides plenty of habitat for them.

Welcome home Margie!
Did your internet provider supply the new modem?

Not a bad day for walking the Dog, Lightfoot.

My day:
One load of wash.
Shower.
Picked enough lettuce for a salad and planted more lettuce seed.
This afternoon I took the Little Chuckie in the car. He does not like riding in my car.
I tried everything to keep him in the passenger seat, all to no avail. He managed to create enough of a stir to have me accidentally put the gear shift into Neutral. I thought something was wrong with the car and pulled into a parking lot, saw the gear, put it right, continued to the river where I drowned the dog. disagree
Seriously, I took him for a walk, which he enjoyed. He managed to slip the leash off, but fortunately he didn't run away, so I put it back on and decided I had enough and returned to the car. This time, he snuggled between my feet and refused to move. LOL We came back to my son's place, spent a little time where he was comfortable.

What are you going to do with 18 pounds of hamburger LFF?

The store I work at sells 10 pound rolls but I never have room in my freezer for that much. One church lady buys the rolls and browns the meat right away and puts in containers and freezes for a later day for spaghetti sauce, tacos or sloppy joes.

I ended up buying 24 pounds of frozen hamburger that is 85/10%. Cost me a whopping $1.67 a pound, in 3 pound packages. Will sell 2 packages to Dawn.
I took Dawn to the food pantry this morning, and Dawn bought a bike at the thrift store there. I brought all her goodies to Otsego, where she lives now. Fred was really surprised at all the good stuff she got, and sees how it's worth the trip out there.

Then we stopped by Save-a-Lot for a couple of things I needed. Brought Dawn here, and she's making a 3 lb. meat loaf for me. Took Chipper along today, and he was so happy to go for the ride. He's sleeping by my feet right now.

Glad, I'm not sure if I admire you for having a mammogram or just say, "What?" I had one years ago and absolutely refuse to EVER let them smash my poor breast again.

Lightfoot, how great that you and Dawn can exchange favors, you taking her places and her cooking for you.

My Day thus far:
Made myself a stovetop Peach upsidedown cake with Jiffy mix and fresh peaches. I believe white flour has a negative affect on my system.
I set out a Compari tomato plant, which I had grown from seed of a store-bought Compari tomato. Set out another Broccoli plant and reseeded beets and deadheaded the Peonies.
Now I await my daughter, gr.daughter and gr.son and we will go to a park and do a nature walk.
I may see the Little rascal before we go. I'm trying and praying to find a natural deterrent to fleas. He itches and it breaks my heart. Most products do not kill fleas.
Have a wonderful day everyone. :pray:

Took Chipper for another walk this afternoon, but kept it short because the mosquitoes were so bad. Penney, from the other end of our building, stopped by my patio with a new toy for Chipper. We have sliding doors out to our patio here, which we didn't have in the front, and I'm sure they'll be useful this winter.

Revolution. Is it over the counter?
A neighbor told me to use a flea comb and drop the fleas into soapy, hot water and ( This one seems questionable)Borax on the carpet. I wonder if Borax might be detrimental to the doggie?

Yesterday was a walk in the park day with my daughter, gr.daughter, gr.son and Opie, their dog AND hordes of mosquitoes.. We walked 5 miles. I was hurting on the return walk and last evening I could barely walk, but a good night's sleep and I feel fine today.
I did quite a bit of watering of garden plants. Also weeding. Also saw the little doggie.

I'm not sure if Revolution is sold over the counter. I get it from the vet, but it's also a heartworm preventer, so Chipper had to be tested for heartworm before the vet would sell me any.
I'd keep away from borax, as it can make dogs sick. Would be better to get a peppermint flea spray.
The rascal may be mean because it's miserable from the fleas biting him. Also, check that you don't bring the fleas home with you.
5 miles is a long way to walk. I sure couldn't do it. I walked Chipper about mile this morning. Dawn is out walking him now.

"It was just another Saturday
Until you said hello
But then I knew I had to leave
And you might never know
What I'm trying to say in this song."
That was the opening verse of a song Paul and I wrote years ago. Such memories pop into my head from time to time. Anyway, I digress.
Today is an indoor day. Looks like it'll rain all day. Took Chipper out in a light drizzle early this morning, and he pawed at me to go out again a little while ago. I took him out to pee in the rain, and we came back in. Then, when I walked down the stairs to the hallway, he hesitated, heading back toward the door. Apparently he wasn't ready to come in, so I followed him as he led me across the parking lot, in the rain, to where he walked around a bit, and then pooped, which I picked up with a waste bag, of which I always carry one, usually two. Then, he led me back to the door, as if to say "Okay. I'm ready to go in now."

Don't think so, since I can't sing or play an instrument, and the recordings of Paul are not in public domain.
Cool morning here. Was able to take Chipper for a little walk before I took my pills. The Bridgefest fireworks in Allegan started about the time I took Chipper out last night. He turned right around at the door, and returned to the safety of the apartment. Chipper laid with me in the recliner for about 3 hours after the fireworks ended, but didn't go outside till this morning. And now, I'll be leaving him for a few hours, while I visit my Mom later today....

I did go to my son's to wish him happy birthday.
I did pet their new dog, Pablo, but I'm still not trusting him.
Pit Bulls have a bad reputation, so I feel less than trusting.
I didn't go to the memorial service, but sent a card to her husband.
I stopped at Ollie's on the chance they might have room darkening curtains.
They did. I bought 6 panels, needed 10, but had only enough cash for 6.
I hope to get back before they sell the last 4.

Coffee.
One load of laundry.
Quite a bit of my day was spent in the gardens.
Also spent time with Little Chuckie.
