What a fun way to describe my life in just a Sentence a Day:
Drove to the town where I used to live for a wedding shower of a dear friend who is like another daughter to me. And I visited with my very best friend who I miss ever so much. She was so good to me when I lived there.
I don’t feel like I got enough done today and that’s not a feeling that I like. Shoulda made a list.
Having Monday off from work is an awesome treat. I went to Home Depot for one thing, which they didn’t have, so I consoled myself with plants.
It was hard to get up this morning. I could get used to staying home.
The grass was cold to my toes when I took my evening tour of the garden tonight.
It is actually cool enough that I got to wear my new duster/sweater today!
Looking forward to a good meal tonight. My lunch was yucky.
Attended the local Farmers Market and then rode with Mr. Menace to Lowe’s for some wood he needed, when I spied ONE outdoor sectional sofa clearance reduced! It now belongs to me.
Spent most of the day moving light weight things out of the yard to underneath the deck in anticipation of Irma. See…. I need that space for clutter! *wink wink*
Most of the schools and government offices are closed today and tomorrow in anticipation of Irma, so its a very quiet day at the office, since our customers are county government offices exclusively.
My oldest sibling’s birthday is today. I do wish I lived closer and could participate in family gatherings. Happy 61 Ginger. That’s her below, on the right. (me on the left)
In keeping with tradition my sister, Ginger, had her first children 11 months apart and the eldest’s birthday is today. Her boys are my boys. That’s her youngest above.
Had dinner with an old high school friend who was in town for a work meeting. Ate at 5 Point Public House, one of my favorite restaurants listed HERE.
It’s Friday night and we decided to stay home for date night. I got all the deck furniture put back out from the Irma scare, and we had our apeirtifs as we watched the hummingbirds darting around feasting on the rosemary. Then after supper which consisted of leftovers, we stargazed from the hot tub. Splendid date night.
So after putting all the deck furniture back out last night, I took it all back off today in preparation for staining the deck. I shouldn’t thought that through a little further.
I did several tiny projects today and then spent HOURS staining the cracks between the deck boards. Not a fun job. But it looks good.
I don’t know where this day went.
We’ve had huge unexpected, as least by me, rainstorms all afternoon. I brought my umbrella! But its in the car.
I saw the idea on Facebook, so I made unconventional Tacos last night. I eat low carb, so I had mine on lettuce leaves instead of tortillas. Mr. Menace had his on hamburger buns and liked it better than taco shells because they hold together better.
Busy day at work, loads of phone calls and when I got home I did some photo shoots outside before the sun set to use on this post.
ps. I do not recall EVER having no-see-ums anywhere I have lived except in this area of Alabama. They are especially bad in the early mornings and late evenings.
I had to drain the foundation bottle this morning to get any out of it, so tonight, its a trip to Sophora and then supper at Outback Steakhouse. Two words…. Blackberry Martini.
We went down to one of our “rental” houses (read: storage house) and loaded up a trailer full of things to sell at our yard sale next Saturday. Oh my aching back!
Thirty-five years ago, I had my most precious gift EVER and her name is Crystal Nicole.
Went through boxes and boxes and boxes of stuff that I haven’t been through in several years. It will feel so good to get rid of some of this stuff next Saturday.
Busy, busy day at work today. It went by pretty fast though.
Unexpected out of town work day today and I was TOTALY successful in my mission. YAY me!
I don’t know if it was payback for me working out of town yesterday or what, but I was the only person in my department today. And the phone rang. and rang. and rang.
It was a blur.
After a 14 hour day, 4 baggy eyes, 2 sore backs, and much negotiations, my last EVER yard sale is over. Totally worth it! but never going there again.
