Clean Start: 2015

With the start of the new year I have once again decided that it’s time to clean house. Last night I made the first, rather weak volley in this endeavor by moving some items from house back into car. One of the items (as a set) that I put into the car was empty growler bottles that I plan to have refilled tonight during my first trip to My Friend’s Growler Shop in Grant Park / Cabbagetown. While I have no idea whose shop this really is they are close to East Atlanta and appear to have a nice selection of beers to be put into growlers. I have once again decided to target rooms in my cleanup / clean out endeavor. Tonight I will work on the dining room because, truth be told, it’s one of the easiest targets in the house.

Cooking Is Fun(damental)
Ha! The Mac tried to autocorrect “damental” to “demential”.

Along with (eventually) getting exercise one of my other plans for life changes is to cook again. Last night I made a boxed Butter Chicken (think Indian food) which was quite pleasant. I figure that along with saving a few bucks here and there I will probably not eat as much by cooking at home. I also plan to bring leftovers into work for lunches in order to repeat the benefits while at work.

I’m Getting Hitched!
No, no, I’m not getting married.

Yesterday I put an order in with eTrailer for a tow hitch for the Mazda. I probably could have gotten away with shoving a bike into the trunk for a little while, but since I’m currently accustom to spending money (and think of all the money I will save by eating at home!) I decided to pull the purchase trigger on one sooner than later.

I saw this message on an elementary school sign. Does anyone else consider this message ironic because it’s in all caps and has exclamation points, which make it seem as if it’s bullying kids into not being bullies?

  1. Failed to mention that I am once again in the midst of fighting a low-grade cold. I’m tired, slightly achy, and overall apathetic.

    I cleaned up last night by cleaning up all the Christmas cards.

    I was hoping not to, but I’m not that strong, I’m sucked into Celebrity Apprentice again. That show is so ridiculous, but I like it. I wanted to what Sig Hansen was like, but he hasn’t gotten much air time.

  3. Christmas cards will be taken down this week.

    Have I correctly heard that Sarah Silverman is on this season of Celebrity Apprentice?

    It was a quiet night at JEFDSDR. Watched some show set in the 40’s which I was only half following.

    Browsing real estate- still no word from the buyers. We found a couple of properties- one around the corner and one just south of Alvaton (!!!) which would add 20 minutes each way to the bus. Neither appear to have much equine facilities, but we have friends who build barns!! Yes, that’s YOU FOLKS! We had so much fun building the last one, I look forward to such a challenge.

    Please let me know where I need to mail my man-card, as we will be watching American Idol starting tonight- no only because Debbie has a crush on Harry Connick, but the tryouts are really fun to watch.

    No Sarah Silverman.
    Most of the celebs are no one I know or care about, but I was curious about Sig, and then Terrell Owens is on there, wondering how he has changed over the years since he’s been kind of an idiot in the past. And one of the Jonas brothers….

    I can’t stand the tryouts on American Idol – that’s why I quit watching. They had too many terrible singers that think they can sing, it just annoys me they get any air time. Main reason I like The Voice better, they don’t have anyone bad from the very beginning.

    Barn building……. I’ll tell Allan.

  6. Laura says:

    Okay, I need a final count of hockey attendees for Sunday’s game. So far I have:
    Barb, Allan, 2 of their friends, Paul, Steve, Debbie. Anyone else interested? I’m calling the ticket office this afternoon to see what their group tickets will cost.

    Thanks, Laura

  7. Steve says:

    I’m very sorry Laura, but we have to beg off the hockey expedition. I have a meeting at Stone Mountain at 2 with my co-chair to discuss some changes for the coming year.

  8. Martha says:

    Steve, I’m guessing you may have watched Agent Carter, it’s a Captain America spin off. I just finished watching last night’s episode, it will be on my weekly watch list. American Idol never has and never will.

    On the topic of beer, Hop City at Krog Street Market is open and it looks pretty impressive…but I haven’t had the chance to partake, just yet.

  9. Stacy Fox says:

    Can I ask an ignorant growler question? After you open one, how quickly do you have to drink it?

    I’m a horrible horrible person and never even got out Christmas cards this year. 🙁 But if I have your address, you’ll probably get some other random holiday card, like St. Patrick’s Day or something. *sigh* Here’s to a more organized 2015.

  10. Barb says:

    We are good to go to tailgate lunch & watch hockey Sunday.

    Agent Carter got DVRd – we will watch that as soon as we ever get a chance. Allan was looking forward to it.

    Stacy – it goes flat fairly quick, depending on what kind of beer it is, I’d say you have a week at the most.

  11. A week sounds about right, not that I’ve ever had one sit around that long. Hey, it’s only 64 ounces of beer…
