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! (Itâ€™s supposed to be warmer the next 2 or 3 days!)
Of course, that means I didnâ€™t get everything done in the MILA that I wanted to get done today. Got it all wiped down as much as Iâ€™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 donâ€™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 weâ€™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 donâ€™t mind grinding it up and making my own burger. I make burger thatâ€™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 Iâ€™ll make me one of those Michael Angeloâ€™s Meat Lasagnaâ€™s. Not a bad single meal for less than $3.
I just remembered! Iâ€™m 2 years and 11 days without a cigarette! Cool!
Danged if it didnâ€™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 wouldnâ€™t snow at all. It didnâ€™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 â€œSenior Breakfast”: two eggs over easy, two sausage links, Hash browns and ONE piece of toast. I mean, come on. ONE piece of toast? Iâ€™d have gone another $.20 for another piece of toast.
Made our usual stop by Safeway. Didnâ€™t spend as much as we donâ€™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. Thereâ€™s still about 30 lbs of chicken in there! Various veggies and other meats. Should last awhileâ€¦
Not much going on this evening. Our son cooked dinner for us. Dishes are going now. Listening to the News (but donâ€™t get me started).
Installed Picasa 3 and have it running my scans directory. LOTS of duplicates! Damn!
Anyone know how to fix a 55â€ Plasma TV? Would be willing to trade working on your computer or Large Lazy FatAss Cat to get this thing fixed. (Itâ€™s blocked my pool table long enough!!!!)
