Where’d it go? – The week got away from me. I had a moderate amount of things to be accomplished but it was a real “wam bam thank you mam” kind of week.
Booster – We got our second covid booster yesterday. Our doc had told us to hold off until later in the summer and here we are. We went at a time when we didn’t have anything on the calendar because we remember the achey fog that comes with it. Most of my fog and aches were yesterday but the beloved husband is having them today. All in all, it’s worth it. So far neither of us have contracted covid but we’ve had enough friends go through it to know how awful it can be even when it’s a mild case. (Perhaps I should go knock on wood or do any superstition to continue our good luck.)
Mahjongg – Oy! Played twice now. (Note to Lynn – it’s not like gin rummy!) There are a lot of layers of strategy to learn along with weird-pictured tiles. It would be easier if it was the same suites as other card games (hearts, spades, diamonds and clubs). Still struggling. Three-word review – it is complicated!
What would you do? – We have a new neighbor behind us. The back of their property butts up to ours. The previous owner cut down the trees that gave us both privacy (they were dead). I have done some plantings, but it will take a few years to get full privacy. New neighbors are only here weekends for now. This past week (while they weren’t there) they had wildly blinking flashing lights all over the windows in their sunroom which faces us. They were on 24 hours, but you can’t see them during the day. At night it’s lit up like a freaking blinking billboard. Very annoying. This is a very country-ish area. They are home this weekend and they turned them off. If they are on again during the coming week, I will either write them a letter directly (a nice one) or ask if this is the sort of thing where the HOA intercedes. There are three decks facing them. I don’t know if it bothers the other neighbors. I’m grateful our bed isn’t facing that way. There is no way they can use their sunroom when these lights are one. Big, blinking lights! HUGE BLINKING LIGHTS!
So how was your week?
