It’s that time! – I’m getting besieged by fund raising gifts. Being old school, I feel guilt when I throw out something “good.” Yet I’m getting things I’d never use and can’t be donated. I wish the charities would use the money on doing good work rather than enticing me to donate more by sending me junk.
Goodbye sweet phone – My phone died this week. It took ten minutes to order a mocha latte. I knew it was time. As with everything else, inventory is down. You can’t get what you really want so you make do. Hope this doesn’t come around to bite me.
People are a hoot – I have a chatty neighbor. He’s retired with excess time so his paragraphs have excess words. I enjoy him but a five minute conversation could take a half hour. Maybe longer. He’s an interesting guy so I have to make sure I have the time when I ask him how he is because he will tell me in great detail.
Murphy comes to visit – Without a functioning kitchen we had made plans to get ribs from a food truck. This is the last weekend the truck is open until spring. I’m not a fan of their side dishes so I picked up a side at a grocery store. I was shocked. Three servings of mashed potatoes cost more than five pounds of potatoes. Way more. I had to “make” myself buy them. Later when we went to the food truck, they didn’t have ribs. Now I have $$ mashed potatoes and no ribs. There is a chance they’ll have them today. It’s their last day. Otherwise we are having expensive taters for dinner!
Kitchen update – All the cabinets and appliances are out. It’s only been three days but it seems like it’s been going on forever. Without a good sink on the first floor we are using paper or plastic plates. Transitioning the cats was a little harder than I expected as the plates slip around. I’ve come up with a good method that’s working and they seem to be happy. At least for now. After all they are cats.
So how was your week?
