I washed clothes all day. Got the winter bedspread washed, folded, and tucked away in the closet for the summer. Miss Karma and I spent a lot of time on the porch on such a glorious day.
Karma always grabs the comfy chair when I leave--hehe!

The windows were also opened wide. Karma loves to watch the swallows on the wind.
I wiped down the dirty metal and glass furniture...
...and planted Karma's cat grass planter once again. :)
Was ten years ago today that I moved up here to the Fargo-Moorhead area from Minneapolis. Wow! Time flies!!
Supposed to almost hit 80 today--but expecting thunderstorms this afternoon. So--Karma and I need to hit the porch while we can--hehe! Later! Have a happy day! :):)

What made you choose Fargo as your next place to live, Rita? Had you lived there before at some point?

You had a fairly productive day. Yesterday, we cleaned out under our pergola and it sure made me feel good to see it all nice and clean. Cody always steals my pillow when I get up out of bed in the mornings. lol

Hi Serena,
Long story. Basically I came up here to go to college. Had my arm injury and Workman's Comp refused to send me to school (tested me and said I was "too smart to send to school"??). But I couldn't do any of the physical jobs I used to do--unskilled labor, just high school. Got mono working two jobs to make ends meet.

Dagan had gone to college up here so I knew a little about the area from visiting. He encouraged me to move up here to go to college on my own and forget Workman's Comp who were always doing everything they could to NOT help me--hehe! (They gladly kicked me off benefits because I went to college without their permission).

Anyways, Dagan had just finished at Concordia College but offered to move back up to Moorhead with me for one year. He moved out after a year, but neither of us ever left the FM area. :) Things always happen for a reason--and Dagan wouldn't have met Leah if he hadn't moved back up here. Meant to be, right? :):)
