Umm, I was about to start this entry and then decided I better get out and about and get some things done. First on the list - haircut. I tend to let it go because I hate waiting in long lines for a haircut. I got lucky this morning and was the only one in there, plus the lady did an excellent job.
Then decided that a nice cafe mocha, venti size from Starbucks would be cool, I rarely go there cause' their drinks aren't exactly cheap - got one of those. Then over to Ace Hardware looking at lawn vacuums, but their prices were higher than I wanted to pay. Over to Fry's fueling station - you get money off gas prices by using your shopper's card - I got 20 cents off per gallon which is a pretty good deal so I filled up. Then, over to Home Depot where I found a much better vacuum and bought it along with another gallon of wallpaper paste since Lynnette has used most of the other gallon up.
Got home and got into a Facebook conversation with a lady I know from the ministry days - she lives in Texas - about making a quilt for me and then my mom. She has already started my quilt and will do my mom's when she's done with mine. As a lot of people in this nation, she is unemployed and has been for quite a while now.
Then got on the phone with mom about the color patterns she might like on a quilt if she were to receive one for Christmas, lol. Beige, blue and dark red. She has good taste in colors and what goes together is all I can say about that.
Now? About to go outside and get that vacuum going so I can get on with this landscaping project. I want to get that done so I may put off the roof thing on the trailer. The trailer isn't any big hurry project at the moment, anyway. There is a lot to do with that trailer and I figure at least a couple of months before I have it the way I want it. Wallpaper; AC; carpet; mattress and microwave. Landscaping: basically the entire front yard, maybe half of it is finished at the moment and a lot of tedium left to go with it.
Long interlude. My new vacuum is awesome!! I can just move the end of the thing around in the rocks and it sucks the leaves and junk right out of there! Exactly what I hoped I would get, plus the thing has a 2 year warranty on it.
My son just came out and started complaining about the newest Playstation game: Call Of Duty MW3. He was frankly disgusted. Apparently, when you are killed in the game and you "spawn" - come back to life - you come back to life near or next to an opponent who immediately kills you. This did not happen, according to him, with the other versions of this game. I dunno. I don't buy or play these games anymore, quit a long time ago.
All 3 dogs got walked today. This because the neighborhood kids were bored and they like walking giant dogs that get them a lot of attention.
Yes, another very long interlude. I tend to get caught up in things on the weekends and let entries drag out all day long if necessary. The people with 2 properties behind me? "Cleaned" up their house/property - but only on the front. I am still subjected to the hoarding by virtue of having to see it from my back yard. Their other property? The definition of hoarding should have a picture of that property as a reference. They have done absolutely nothing. I sometimes think about these things when I am outside, working away and trying to beautify my property - while - my neighbors are not only doing nothing to beautify their property, but seem to take pride in the pig-sty type of living conditions that they are perpetuating.
But, it is getting late - for me anyway, probably not most people - and I am going to bed.
