Today Went By Quick

My neighbor Jean and I went over to Central Park this morning. Our city was holding its annual Earth Day/Arbor Day Festival there. It was supposed to start at 10 am, so we left home around 9:30 am. When we got there, we could not believe how full the parking lots were already. There was a long line of people waiting to get free trees and other plants and that was where I found my friend from Linda from the grief group I used to go to. She is one of the ladies I still meet up with for lunch every week. She eventually got out of the line because her son-in-law told her that he looked at what they were giving away this year, and they didn’t look that good.
Jean and I walked around to check out all of the free stuff in all of the booths that were set up. We always get such cool stuff like free lip balm, free hand sanitizer, pens, pencils, toothbrushes, reusable tote bags, water saving shower heads, mini-flashlights. Some years they have a lot of free stuff and some years they don’t. We mainly go for the freebies (LOL).
Got back home just in time to let my mowers into my back yard. They were next door when I pulled up, and they had already done my front yard, but they came back once I opened up the garage for them to go through.
Noticed that the filler valve in my guest bathroom toilet was making a “whistling” noise. Also it was not shutting off every time and it was putting too much water in the tank. Trying to adjust it didn’t work, so luckily I had a spare one, so I changed it out. I’ve changed the filler valves so many times that I can do it in about 5 minutes.
Was just lazy the rest of the day. I’ll have to try to get out for a walk with Hiker tomorrow.
