Thoughts on the Weekend

  • Apparently a fun time was had by all at the dance.  Girlie Bear and the young man who accompanied her both seemed quite whooped when I picked them up.
  • Getting up at 6 AM was rather difficult for Girlie Bear this morning.  Hopefully she learns at an early age she can’t rise and shine if she’s out to all hours of the night.
  • I began construction of the new bathroom closet this afternoon.
    • I’m about halfway done in constructing components.
    • I hope to be at the “trim and paint” stage by next weekend.
    • Ran out of time, light, and lumber.  Oh well, I had to go to the lumber yard anyway.
  • Going to a pet store in a bad neighborhood is not worth the time saved by lining up errands with the trip across town to take Girlie Bear to visit her mother.
    • Holding a 40 pound bag of dog food in my left hand while walking to my truck so that my right hand is free for emergencies means I shouldn’t have gone there to buy dog food in the first place.
  • For breakfast this morning, Irish Woman made biscuits and gravy with hash browns.   Dinner was chicken and dumplings.  Dessert was yellow cake with homemade caramel fudge icing.
    • I think she’s trying to fatten me up for the kill.
    • I will, however, die happy.
  • Temperatures this weekend were about 60 degrees. The weatherlady is saying it’s supposed to be in the teens in the next couple of days.  My bones say she’s right.
    • Every time I move, it sounds like someone stepping on a bag of corn flakes.
  • Irish Woman explained her plans for the garden to me today.  Looks like I’m building more beds and digging out more clay.
    • Oh well, at least she told me in January.  Last year I got the briefing in April.

  1. Either three more months of ‘honey do’s’ before the garden, or this is just a ‘teaser’ of what’s to come! 🙂

  2. Of course… 🙂

  3. Sounds like the menu was the carrot to go with the sti…er, plans for the bathroom and gardens.
