Splooters — I learned a new word last week – splooting — thanks to Linda at Walking, Read, Writing and Whimsy. It was in relation to squirrels who sploot on the road. This week I had to come to a complete stop with my car to avoid squashing a splooting squirrel. Then he appeared indecisive on his next move. He’s lucky it was me or he’d be history.
Neurotic? Me? – I take my Fitbit seriously. There is no point in doing if I don’t. I get my 10K steps a day and it’s not really all that hard. I’m an active person. If I work in a half hour walk, I’ll hit the target easily. My Fitbit watch does a fireworks display to mark the achievement. The other night I had just gotten into bed when I realized I didn’t see the fireworks display. After ten seconds of “how ridiculous is this” I checked my watch. I had 30 steps left to do. I sprinted out of bed, completed my challenge and enjoyed the fireworks. Neurotic or dedicated? You can decide. I wisely decided not to comment on it to the beloved husband. There is no doubt what he would say.
A good discovery – I met up with an old friend this week. She’s on a specific diet so we had lunch at a place that serves bowls of raw vegetables and grains I can’t pronounce. All healthy stuff. I tried a taco. It was cheap and tasty and a small portion for lunch (most people get two). The place totally lacked atmosphere. It was dark and loud and they played weird music (to me). However, I can see myself picking up take-out when I’m in that shopping center. I don’t eat big meals especially for lunch. One of my challenges is to find a place that has small portions.
Oh no, not again – On Wednesday we will start our last house project for this year. It’s a small one and our contractor says he will be done in a week. I am both looking forward to it and dreading it. I’ve had my share of contractors this year. The constant cleaning and disruption gets on my nerves. This will be the last project for the first floor for a long while. Anything else is just decorative stuff like painting or hanging window treatments and I’ll do them myself. By “I’ll” I mean the beloved husband. Maybe. Mostly I’m the painter.
What da fluff is dat? – After weeks of watching videos posted by Labrador retriever, Newfie and German Shepherd owners (and loving them), Facebook has started feeding me videos from rabbit owners (yes, literal rabbit hole!). They are cute but will I end up with every animal video out there? I shouldn’t complain. It’s better than some of the other stuff on Facebook. I can talk dog language now. Gotta do me a beat down! Tanks for reading lil fren.
So how was your week?
