Good morning. Well, I've been up for a few hours. Around 4:30 a.m. I just couldn't get back to sleep so I decided I may as well get up and try to do a few things. So I did just that. The ink that I had ordered for the printer arrived yesterday, so I installed it in the printer. Then I printed off a couple mailing labels, a few crochet patterns and copies of my upcoming itinerary.
Next, I had to re-package a few items that I need to return for exchange. This took a while. I had to make sure the right label went to the right item. Plus, I'm a real picky packager. After the packages were ready for mailing, I got my mailer box started. I need this box ready for mailing by Thursday.
Yesterday I didn't get to do everything I had planned on doing. Backing up my laptop took all afternoon. I back it up in sections, each section in a labeled folder. It took a while, but at least it is done.
There is a mouse that has come into the house and he is loving my bread, and anything else that I leave out on the counter. Last week, I opened three new loaves of bread. (one at a time, of course) Loaf 1 - I got to eat just a few pieces of the bread before Mr. Mouse ate holes in the bag. Loaf 2 - I didn't even get one piece of bread from this loaf. I forgot to put it in the fridge, and Mr. Mouse tunneled a nice hole in the bottom of the bag.
Loaf 3 - I'm enjoying this one. When I'm not using it, I put it in the fridge or in the microwave. I have a garbage container on the counter and it is covered, but Mr. Mouse has decided to eat this now that he can't have my bread. Last night, I started putting the garbage container in the fridge. I swear, this mouse is trying to drive me to drink!
Now that would be something! It takes me all year to drink a six pack of beer when I'm really in a drinking mood. Can you imagine if I have to start buying a six pack every six months? AA, here I come! Just kidding. One can of beer and I can have a nice nap. When we go to the Cabaret for an evening, I order a bottle of Sam Adams Light and a glass of ice cubes. About two hours later, I ask for more ice cubes. At the end of the evening (about four hours later), there is still some beer in my glass when I leave. (if I'm driving, I order Coke)
We are having storm warnings here until seven o'clock tonight. It's a bit windy outside. No matter, today I have to work on the wicked tax stuff. I'd like to have some columns done and totaled by tonight. groan, groan, groan!
Ah, but next week! Pogo and I will be in sunny Florida with Beth and Audrey. The first thing I want to do, aside from grocery shopping, is to visit Orange World. I love that store, plus there is a really nice flea market behind it. I love that flea market too!
After a day of trekking around the flea market, I will put on one of my new mu mu dresses and take my crocheting out to my little screened in patio and get comfy. My condo is close to everything I need, yet it offers privacy.
Here's a photo of the view from my patio. The white fence over on the left goes to the computer room and the swimming pool and hot tub. A little to the right of the fence you can see the open door to the laundry room. Around the corner from there is the main office. Very convenient indeed!
I think I'd like to visit Old Town again too. They have some really neat shops there. I found a tee shirt in one of the shops that I liked, but I didn't buy it. I should have. I have someone in mind who would like to have it. Isn't this cute?
There's an advertisement on the TV featuring a bunch of children. I don't know what they were selling because I was looking at one of the little girls. Her ears stick straight out on either side of her head. They look like Dumbo ears. Oh my, that poor little girl!
Enough of my babble. I'm off to do a bit of blog reading before starting in on the wicked "T" stuff. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
