Which means it was rarely cloudy, the sun was out, and it got up to around 60+ degrees here. Hot enough for me and the Dog to take off all our clothes and lay out a couple of hours! (It’s supposed to be warmer the next 2 or 3 days!)
Of course, that means I didn’t get everything done in the MILA that I wanted to get done today. Got it all wiped down as much as I’m going to wipe things down. Repaired the blinds in the little bedroom. Took all the cabinet doors off and all the shelves out. Started masking things off I don’t want to paint. Will finish that tomorrow, clean up and cover the floors, and Wednesday I should be able to paint the kitchen and living room. Then we’ll go from there.
Gotta go by Cash&Carry on the way to pick SWMBO up tonight. They have Boneless Beef Chuck Roll for $2.85/lb. I don’t mind grinding it up and making my own burger. I make burger that’s like 99% fat free. Sometimes I have to add water to it to make it cook right. Causes a lot less problems with my missing gallbladder though.
But right now I think I’ll make me one of those Michael Angelo’s Meat Lasagna’s. Not a bad single meal for less than $3.
I just remembered! I’m 2 years and 11 days without a cigarette! Cool!
Danged if it didn’t start snowing about 2000 or so; snowed for a couple of hours. Kinda funny as the Weather Guessers for two different channels said it wouldn’t snow at all. It didn’t really stick; except it got so cold that all that snow has frozen. Nice, mostly sunny, but cold day.
SWMBO took me to breakfast at the Family Pancake House in Port Orchard. I had the “Senior Breakfast”: two eggs over easy, two sausage links, Hash browns and ONE piece of toast. I mean, come on. ONE piece of toast? I’d have gone another $.20 for another piece of toast.
Made our usual stop by Safeway. Didn’t spend as much as we don’t really need that much. Nor can we afford that much anymore. Ah well. Luckily, our freezer is still mostly packed with, well, frozen stuff that will last us awhile. There’s still about 30 lbs of chicken in there! Various veggies and other meats. Should last awhile…
Not much going on this evening. Our son cooked dinner for us. Dishes are going now. Listening to the News (but don’t get me started).
Installed Picasa 3 and have it running my scans directory. LOTS of duplicates! Damn!
Anyone know how to fix a 55” Plasma TV? Would be willing to trade working on your computer or Large Lazy FatAss Cat to get this thing fixed. (It’s blocked my pool table long enough!!!!)
