"Down at the Car Wash . . ."

My great-granddaughter Lexi (on top of the car) and her friend Camryn are spending a few days with me to help me with some housework, yard work, etc. That included washing my car, which hadn't been washed for years - I sometimes identified it in parking lots by it's dirty/black roof. They also washed the chairs visible in the foreground and the pads that go in them.

On Friday and Saturday, we also did a lot of pruning and weeding. I did the pruning, we all did some weeding, and they carted stuff to my neighbor's burn pile. About 2/3 of the pile they are standing in front of is stuff they added to it.
I really have not been doing yard work this year.

Today the girls vacuumed and mopped. And took trash down to the big trash container which I leave at the end of the driveway, because it's too hard for me to handle. I usually put one bag at a time in the car and take it down whenever I'm going out, but I discovered this morning that one of the smaller trashcans under the carport was almost full. I wonder who put that stuff in there - I didn't.

For the most part, the girls have also cooked for themselves. Lexi's mom sent a bunch of stuff with them when I picked them up on Thursday. However, we did go to Luke's Restaurant in Arlington last night for supper. Lexi has always liked Luke's; they have the best fried catfish around.

I think Alyssa (Lexi's mom) is going to pick them up tomorrow. Then on Tuesday my sisters are coming for a couple of days. I'm looking forward to that.
