I got up this morning, looked at those dogs with a pathetic look on their face and decided to take them for a walk. This time, however, instead of walking them to the mountains, I got them in the car and drove over there. It is too much of a pain to try and get 3 very large dogs to cross Baseline road with all of that traffic. I just would rather not. It was about a 25 minute hike up and down mountainsides. There were a LOT of other hikers out there, but fortunately, no other dogs.
Getting done with that, I decided to go to Home Depot. The shower faucet in the bathroom is leaking and it's leaking on the hot water side. Wasted water, wasted electricity. I have a clue about these things: not fixing them will cost you FAR more than forking out the money for a new setup or parts to repair the old. I decided to replace the whole thing because it has a bent cold water handle - I have no idea how that happened, surely one of the tenants does - and I didn't want to fool with it.
Well, I had more to write but I want to go out while it's still afternoonish time and enjoy the beautiful weather.
I also decided to stop at Fresh and Easy. They have the cheapest turkeys on sale: 37 cents per pound, Jennie O frozen. I don't care if a turkey is frozen or not, in the end it all tastes the same to me. Fry's has the same exact thing - but their price is 55 cents per pound and they claimed to not have a price matching policy. I don't know about that one, I thought they did, but the lady adamently stated they did not. I will be checking into that here today sometime. But it doesn't matter, I already got a 22 pounder and at a great price. Farmer John hams also were good price at 77 cents per pound, I got one of those, too.
The trailer tenants are going to do all the work this year. I buy, they fry. Well, you know, they are doing the cooking. I'm thinking of getting another turkey - much smaller so I can keep it in the freezer and then cooking it maybe in January or something. I usually buy 2, 1 for now and then in 2 months or so when I'm not so burned out on eating endless amounts of turkey (lots of leftovers, usually) I will cook another one.
Absolutely beautiful weather out now. It's almost 2 pm and it's like 75 degrees outside. Gorgeous. The fishies are doing well with it getting cold at night - but I have been running a heater in each pond for what, a week now? It had no noticeable effect on electric usage so, they're just going to stay on, set at 75 degrees each.
