Yep, this morning started rather early today. 0515 as usual, but it just felt earlier. I sure wouldnâ€™t mind one night of uninterrupted sleep! Just 7 hours.
Been â€œplayingâ€ with a program, gif2apng, that turns .gif files into animated .png files. Then I got to â€œplayingâ€ with my WordPress trying to increase the upload limit cause making .gifâ€™s under 2 mb is a real pain sometimes. I just want 5 mb is all!
I was able to include this 3.7 mb file by manually uploading it then linking to it, but, I want to be able to just include it here and have it upload.
Found 7 copies of this picture from where I tried uploading by just making a regular post and it kept erroring out. I just donâ€™t know.
Anywho, Iâ€™ve probably bored you to tears with all this technical stuff. On to my usual Friday! (Well, mostly usual.)
So I went to my friendâ€™s and picked up my new rider-mower. Bad solenoid. Cost me $100 to get it all fixed; more than worth it since the rider-mower was given to me in the first place. Injured myself taking it off the truck at home. Damned Klutzy POS! Works great though. Already mowed the back yard. Works just fine.
So I mowed the front-lower yard too. Then moved the Caravan to a different place in the yard getting ready for when I rent a digger for a day. Nice out there!
Iâ€™m done for the day. Itâ€™s 1600 and I should start to figure out what Iâ€™m going to fix myself for dinner. Or I may just go get tacoâ€™s while picking SWMBO up at the QFC @ 1915 this evening. Kind of late for me to be eating but I can handle it. I think.
I gotta reboot my computer into Windows and get the MCARC bank statements and get those printed out before bedtime. Might as well get that done! (Posting WAY early.)
Iâ€™d be willing to bet it got to 85 degrees here at the house. Sunny! Hot! My kind of day! Spent as much time outside as I could, went for several walks around the property, ate a butt-ton of blackberries, and just enjoyed this day as much as possible.
All the while loading the Caravan for our trip. Had to make a run to WinCo and figured, as long as I was in town, also stopped by the Vape Shop and got another battery for my vaper-thingie. Mostly got sandwich stuff at WinCo so we could eat while driving if we wanted to. Or we could stop by the road somewhere if we wanted to. Or we could go hungry if we wanted to. (Did I cover all the bases?)
Listened to the Noon-time Net (7268.5) while laying out. Heard a lot of folks. The Sheriffâ€™s bands have been busy with a truck turned on itâ€™s side up near the Naval Hospital. Heard a report of another vehicle turned over later this afternoon but donâ€™t remember where. All the usual ambulance runs and rescue stuff going on too. Itâ€™s fun to listen in and not have to respond.
This is one of the rare occasions that Iâ€™m glad SWMBOâ€™s Son lives in our basement. He can keep an eye on the house and feed the animals while we travel for the weekend. Other than that â€¦
SWMBO is home and made herself dinner and put some of the stuff she wants to take into the Caravan. She wants to take her sewing machine? Sheâ€™ll be doing genealogy the first 3 days and trekking around canyons the 2nd 3 days. Whenâ€™s she going to get time to sew? (Sheâ€™ll manage though.)
Anywho, supposed to start raining tonight so Iâ€™ve buttoned up the Caravan and brought in everything I donâ€™t want to get wet. Think Iâ€™ll go lay down and read.
