Oy! What a day. I know Eddie and I decided together to just spend the day vegging out on the island yesterday, but that made today insanely hectic.
There didn’t seem to be a reason to catch the very first ferry off the island at 7:30 since the errands we had to run couldn’t be started ‘til around 10.
We had a van and went to run the “heaviest” of the chores first. We needed 21 bags of Long Island gravel and 21 – 18” round poured concrete steppingstones from a resource we’d used once before. Weighed too much and took up too much room in the back of the van to shop for anything else, so we headed back to the freight house at the ferry dock. That was the first task.
Then it was off to Costco to buy food for the week and more. It shouldn’t be a total loss, I also bought more string lights for the back deck and Eddie couldn’t resist going back to Lowe’s to buy three Clematis flowering vine plants he’d seen on Sunday. The plants had to go to the freight house, so it was back to the ferry to drop them off. I had a radio show mid-afternoon and he had an audition at 5:30 pm, so we grabbed lunch and hightailed it back to town.
