Just about the same as yesterday. DH could not go there he still can not see in short distances.
I had to pack the minivan. I had to back up to the door of the Auditorium and after 71 years' I had a car accident..
My Driver side mirror had been moved just a bit. The building has a wall across from the Auditorium. The wall is about 40 inches high. A double brick wall but it was about 40 inches high.
My minivan has tinted black shield. I always look out of the side mirror.
The angle as I backed up the incline reflected above the wall. I went up slowly and ""BANG"" the rear bumper broke open on the side. Plastic bumper split real good. But I had to get the van parked there to empty the contents.
Rest of the day was long and busy. DH was supposed to help because we are new we wanted to learn ourselves first it is a bog job as volunteers.
DH had to stay home. I had done all the planning and it all came out great.
Refreshments. Apple cider-local - GREAT!!
Pretzels and sugar free cookies and candies. They had water, some drank the cider it is pure Apple juice . I made a big label on both sides telling people it was sugar free.
I centered the tables and spaced them in the middle of a long corridor. It worked well people could go up both sides and still get across the hall s between tables. I used pumpkins and Leaves on the table and the napkins all fall colors.
I had a great time. DH was to keep his eyes shut as much a he can, I was calming my mind by playing with the napkins to make patterns. When people asked to help me I politely replied I am calming my stress level and they left me alone.
There were many compliments. I could never dress up a table like those tables since we have a small house so I went to town on t and calmed my mind.
The concert was good. Not the usual full house but the good weather probably people were leaf peeping. It was good though. Folk Singers they are "CASTLEBAY" Wife has a harp and the husband plays many instruments. Their voices are nice to listen to just a pleasant after noon.
I had lots of help to re-pack the minivan. I keep everything at the house .
REMEMBER my space problem.
I took on the committee because I like to mess with food.
I went home and asked if he was ready to meet our friends at the 99 and he wanted to go.
There were 6 of us and DH had a nice time. He had to wear Dark glasses and his eyes were tearing all the time. Our friends commented to me that his eye is swollen. We shall see what happens by morning,
I might have to bug the Drs. office to be seen tomorrow instead of Tuesday. I will if I have to.
My DH is precious to me. Thanks for listening. Pat in Maine.
