Hump day of my week vacation...

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

Reporting that the weather has been so beastly hot that I have not gotten as much done as I had planned. Today will get kitchen and bathroom decent...then may have enough time to work on office#1 (where my computer is). Office #2 is a combination packing room, store room and exercise room (hey I could use that treadmill with all this hot weather outside).

Yesterday went to senior discount day at Savers thrift store and found a couple of items of interest for my Ebay sales. Hubby found four books for himself and then we went to Sonic where he got a foot-long Coney dog--hold the cheese and extra onions and, of course, keep the chili. I got a lime slush drink ad a small fry (I forgot to ask for no salt on them, but hubby helped me eat them).

For dinner I had a very nice beef burger with a delicious salad of tomato, cuke, romaine and Daikon radish. I also had some fresh basil from my container garden and some microgreens (thinnings from my broccoli raab, also called rapini). Used a small amount of dressing and washed all that down with unsweetened coconut water. Yum!! emoticon

    Hope it cools down so you can enjoy every moment of your stay-cation. I have my treadmill in our lower floor so that I can use it where it's cooler. Have a great week!

I'm on a Stay-cation...staying home for 9 days....

Saturday, July 14, 2012

Might take a few short daylong trips. My main plans are housecleaning and getting some auctions going on Ebay. (I used to do a lot of selling on Ebay and did pretty well with it.)

I have to clean and organize my "offices" first so I can do some listings. I probably have 100 items that I can sell.

My seller's name is Treasuresbyteddy. Will update my blog when I get some items listed.

I sell mostly collectibles of many kinds including vintage toys, cards, books, dishes, fabric and some items that are just plain "interesting." I also have sold Himalayan salt , stevia and wasabi powder.

    Have a wonderful time on your staycation. You may just be more relaxed and rested than if you went away. You can also accomplish a lot if you set your mind to it and take time to stop and smell the roses along the way.

Watered plants outside... took my keys with me cause...

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

A little voice in my head said I would get locked out by my hubby if I didn't...I was right...Good thing I had my keys with me....

He turns his phone off and takes out his hearing aids when he sleeps so I probably would have been locked out until he decided to get up...in about 3 hours...

So glad I had my keys .... emoticon

P.S. Have you ever planted brocolli raab? I planted the seeds on Saturday and they had sprouted on Monday. During the day on Monday they grew almost an inch. One time I planted this in my garden and they literally came up overnight. Stand back when you plant brocolli raab (rhab)....it tastes good, too!

    Will try to find some seeds to plant. Sounds interesting...

    I have never, but I might just do that, it is ok to plant it in the heat of the summer, or is it, a cool weather vegetable? I love the idea of something (anything but weeks) sprouting over night.

Sunday....it's warming up again...

Sunday, July 08, 2012

It's almost 90 degrees today and grandson is cleaning out the gutters today. I don't think he will last too long out there in the hot sun.

Perhaps the gutters will work a little better if they are cleaned out....

Eventually they need replacing and hope to get drain tiling done in the basement.

It seems there is no end to repairs, upkeep etc with home ownership.

However, I haven't lived in an apt for about 30 years and wonder if the adjustment will be difficult.

I am thinking of other possibilities (like buying a smaller house in a less expensive suburb), but for now I am waiting for the real estate market to recover. I have noticed quite a few houses selling in our neighborhood so am hopeful selling will be a possibility in a few years.

    I live a home that's part of my employment so I have no costs. and, like a renter, I just call when something needs doing. I don't miss owning my own home. It was ALWAYS something. I hated it. And I'm not handy at all so I always had to get somebody to do the work. I plan to retire to a community where all the upkeep is part of the price. Easy (albeit more expensive) living.

    Pluses and minuses to both sides but for now, I can
handle maintenance. 10 years down the road, it might
be a different story. Stay cool. HUGS!

    I agree home ownership is a constant to-do list. The perks are so nice though that I do not mind!

Strange work week...seemed like 2 Mondays...

Thursday, July 05, 2012

Today almost everyone was tired and yawning from staying up too late watcing fireworks and partying. (I went to bed early and woke up to the local fireworks.)

But then I tossed and turned most of the night. Hope tonight is a better sleeping night, though it is still about 90 degrees at 9:00.

Our heat wave is going to end on Saturday and I am looking forward to that. It has been too hot to go anywhere other than work. emoticon

    It does seem like 2 Mondays. On the flip side, we had 2 Fridays

    The heat is to break later today and I will be happy to
see it go. Yesterday did feel like another Monday but
for now, emoticon it's FRIDAY!
HUGS and get some sleep this weekend!

    After all the fireworks last night, Mother Nature decided to get in on the act. We had thunderstorms and lots of lightning for over an hour.
Drink plenty of water and stay in the AC whenever possible.
