I’m at the office at 6am, the reasons being that I couldn’t sleep and that I have a lot to accomplish today (hence the short post you’ll get from me).
Lavendaria Y Puerco
Last night’s big activities were doing laundry, but not eating out afterward. I did stop off at the Sage Hill Kroger again, this time to pick up some cole slaw and potato salad to go with the pork I had sitting in the refrigerator.
Once at home I unloaded the clean clothes from the M6 and commenced to fixing a plate of pork and sides. Yummy!
With dinner consumed I watched last weekend’s “Mad Men” on my iPad (why I stubbornly won’t hook the iPad to the tv and watch on it I don’t know), talked with my mother for a little while, did some German homework (must finish before class tonight), and then went to sleep. Had I gotten in a little Kindle reading of “Oliver Twist” it would have been the perfect even — or as perfect as one gets when you live alone.
Of Sun And Kindle
This weekend I will be field-trialling my two latest technology purchases — the Kindle Paperwhite, a solar panel device charger. The trials will occur in Black Mountain, NC as I make my first of two trips up there this year for LEAF. Truth be told I am a little disappointed with this LEAF’s musical lineup, but in the end it’s more about spending time with the Raleigh Royalty in a casual environment.
Das Ist Alle FÃ¼r Heute
That’s all for today.
Allan has decided we need more grass in the back yard, so we are preparing for a pallet or 2 of sod. Last night’s “fun” was raking up a large section of the wood chips, and shoveling them into a wheelbarrow & dumping & spreading in another section of the backyard. My back really doesn’t like that sort of work. Tonight’s fun is Allan will be tilling up the dirt, I’m not sure what I get to do, probably rake & rake & rake it to get it smooth. Oh joy………..
Sod will be Thursday night. If anyone needs some exercise that includes lots of squats, feel free to come join us. I’ll make you dinner & provide beverages.
You certainly married a Man of Action! If trivia falls through for some reason I will commit to helping out doing some manual labor.
Thursday night sod? Sounds like fun! I lurv me some manuel labor.
After adventures in buses going home last night- the handicap lift would not store after loading one of our regulars and her wheelchair- making me 45 minutes late, I managed a quick run before attempting the assembly of a Wally world purchase- a turkey/fish fryer.
Seemed simple enough- connect the burner to the frame, connected the regulator to the LP tank and you should have fire! Unless the regular doesn’t regulate and you don’t get any gas… the $20 purchase will go back- assembled!
Stacy, I walked past the new hardware store in the hood… looks great.
Are you guys serious? you’d really come help? you are crazy! but I’d love it if you are serious. Allan is going to kill me someday with all this manual labor.
So Steve – are you exchanging it? $20 seems cheap for a fryer, but I don’t know what we paid how ever many years ago. ITs the damn oil that makes it expensive.
Sure, I’m serious that if trivia falls through I’ll be there.
The oil does make it expensive. Also, don’t forget the fire extinguisher.
Paulie, we can make trivia fall through! We’ll just postpone until next week — totally fine. 🙂 Heck, maybe I’ll even come up and help then too! (hahahahaha omg me doing manual labor, that’s funny) I could help in the kitchen though, Barb?
Stacy, once you see in person how fun laying sod is, you’d want to help! I know it! (where is that sarcasm font when I need it)
Yep, I’m in. Debbie has a riding date over at Bear Creek. I had been thinking about joing the PTC club ride, but this sounds like more fun!!!
I have Friday off, so I can recover….
This is turning into a party. Be prepared for Allan to be grouchy. Let me talk to him to be sure he is okay with me finding help so I don’t have to do it! I’m sure he will be fine, the more the merrier, and less squats per person.
I think Steve is using the sarcasm font too. more fun……. HAHAHAHAHA
And I was just reminded that I’m working Friday! I forgot my coworker is going to his niece’s graduation. I don’t think that changes much, but I might be available during the day Thursday… depending on Allan.
Not sure what time he is thinking about starting – he has to go up to north east cobb to get the pallet (or 2) of sod. I know he has to work at Hyox until 12:30 at least. and the ground prep is the hardest part of all of this.
I’ll have better answers tomorrow. I really didn’t think anyone would ever volunteer to help with this.
Says the woman who repaired fencing….
Hey – that palm nailer was kind of fun. But, the rest really wasn’t.
Allan just laughed when I said you guys were volunteering to help – he was like – REALLY? So, I’ll know tomorrow what the time frame is for Thursday, guess now I have to figure out a meal?
and Stacy, you are seriously invited, whether you help with the sod or not.
I will bring my “working” clothes and shoes just in case! 🙂 I could certainly use a work out. If not, I can carry cold beverages to the workers haha
and, we do have plenty of showers for anyone that wants to use them after we are done.
