Exhausted after the Memphis quick trip followed by the gate lock not opening, Monday morning still arrives with DH leaving for the airport while I head to exercise with our trainer, Greg, who brought his little boy to see our farm last Saturday. Precious little boy!

Core, lower body, upper body, weights, cardio – yep, it was a great workout.

A “Walmart run,” Whole Foods stop, Home Depot for the new gate lock then waiting, waiting, waiting for the US Post Office to open. 8:30am – gee, half my day is gone by then!

Unload everything at the apartment, change clothes, something to eat, set the combination on the new lock. Phone rings: “Have you already been out to the place?” “No, Harry, I had errands to run after exercise.” “Well, you may want to come on out here. They’re putting in the fireplace inserts. Oh, didn’t you get a spec sheet about the vent-a-hood?”
Oh no. I forgot to leave the spec sheet for Johnny our builder.
“I’m getting in the car right now.”

Fill the water bottle. Load Lucy & her bed in the car. Fill her water bowl. Drive. Thirty minutes later we are turning into the driveway & up the hill we go.

Park the car. Unload Lu. Unlock the barn & speak to Moxie who wants to be brushed. Grab the spec sheet & my big gardening hat. Walk to the house – lots of activity. Lots of people.

Johnny, Harry & Darrell the electrician were waiting for me in the kitchen.
Very good news – Johnny had installed a 10-inch pipe for the vent-a-hood, exactly what the spec sheet called for.

Discussing with Darrell light placement in the master bathroom at the vanities. Seeing that he had installed the lights with vents in the shower & water closet. Even electrical outlets in the house & on the deck – working outlets!

Then to pick tomatoes & okra – the temperature is already in the 90’s, humidity around a 1000 percent! Yep, gonna get overheated today!
