Many of you are familiar with my best friend Samantha. Samantha and I have been friends since I was about 12 (so about 30 years now!). We usually only see each a couple times a year (we’ve always lived at least an hour away from each other), but COVID really put a wrench in our plans. Since 2019, we’ve only seen each other once – not long after we took possesion of the house.
Samantha’s husband is an electrician, and before we got too far on doing stuff with the house, he came out to inspect everything for us, and make sure there was nothing unsafe. During that visit, he and Dave decided we needed a breaker panel instead of fuses.
And on Saturday, the pair returned to install the panel! So while the boys toiled away in our dark dingy basement, Samantha and I enjoyed the sun. She brought me a new little ivy in the prettiest pot.
She brought Dave a new little friend!
He’s in a vase on the kitchen shelf for now, but Dave dug out our HUGE fish bowl, and I just have to clean it. Then he’ll be moving to Dave’s music studio. Dave has named him Sid Fishous.
We went through my house plant collection, and anything that could be split up up, was. Then it was repotted and put in a box for her to take home.
When that was done, we settled in for a little bit of knitting time. (She was working on a cowl, I was working on my socks.)
And when the boys were done, I fired up the bbq and made us all dinner.
It was a wonderful day – and I’m happy to say, there’s still some electrical work to be done, so they will be back soon!
