I am amazed at the talent of all the writers we have on WordPress! I spent a bit more time than normal reading through posts and wow… I find it funny that I just write whatever I want on here but I agonize over what to write on my other site. I don’t get judged. I’m not sure what it is. Maybe I judge myself too much.
Well time to toot my own horn! My article on the Leathernecks appeared on page 8 of the paper. I’m glad it wasn’t the cover story. They used one of the photos I took. So I am very happy all in all. I think I need a writing tattoo. Hmmmm… Something to ponder today. (No I don’t have the money to do this but a girl can dream.)
(Please pardon my slippered feet at the bottom. I didn’t pay attention I was so excited.)
I got a surprise yesterday. Chris surprised me when he called me at work (that was a surprise in itself because I wasn’t going to see him before he went tot work so it was good to hear his voice and talk). I guess he got me a bicycle. Now I haven’t seen my new bike yet (I haven’t ventured outside) but from the picture he sent it looks pretty cool.
Goodwill $20 for those of you wondering. Looks like a lot of gears and such to figure out but oh well. I may take it out for a spin today and time a ride to work. This will be a nice change and less wear and tear on the brakes on the car (I still need to get those replaced). So how fun is that?
Another thing I don’t like about the weather turning cold. I have a lot of plants to haul in and out every night and morning. And they are heavy. I worry that they will get too cold as the temperatures drop so I haul everyone in. Did I mention that some of these guys are heavy? This winter I worry about Essie. As it has gotten colder she has found it harder to get around and I think she is in pain. I don’t know what to do.
Still no response from our old contractor. I have tried calling some more and leaving messages. Another contractor is coming out this afternoon to look at the garage and make a bid on the work. I will try calling one more time. Chris is worried that old contractor will try going after us if we finish the garage without him. That he will want the rest of his money. So the drama continues.
Ok, I am going to sign off for now. I need more coffee and I may drift out to look at my new wheels. I will take a picture and share it tomorrow. I hope everyone has a great day! Cheers!
