The topic: Quiet weekend
So far, it's been a pretty quiet weekend. Yesterday, the tree hating neighbor was on their roof blowing pine needles off of her roof when we got home from breakfast. When she was all done, she'd thrown piles of them over onto our yard, on the trees on the bank. I really wanted to turn on the sprinklers but Brian (whom I had called) told me not to. Party pooper. I took some pictures of what she'd done and I'll have them up tomorrow. Too lazy today.
Brian is so cool, he came home, took the big trash can out there, cleaned them up and is spreading them on the bank in the backyard as a mulch for the new plants. What a guy.
I watched her doing it and she was so angry. You could just tell from the way she was throwing them down. "I HATE this, I HATE these trees, I just HATE them.." Well, you know what? There's nothing you can do about it, so you might as well learn to just live with it and do what you have to. I mean, I don't love cleaning the litterboxes, but it's a job that has to be done. No sense squawking about it and getting my blood pressure up.
I dusted and vacuumed yesterday, did the ceiling in the family room (we've got that nasty popcorn ceiling and stuff grows on it; when the fan goes you can see all of these cobwebby stringers moving), and cleaned the fans in the family room and the bedroom (which has mercifully quit being so noisy). I also did some laundry and got it all folded, hung up and put away. Yay me!
This morning, Brian washed his truck and he took it down to the shop and is bringing home his Bronco. I changed the sheets and went grocery shopping for tonight's dinner.
Filet mignon (I didn't see any in the case, so I asked the butcher and he cut two to the thickness I requested; I didn't know they'd do that!), corn in the husk (for the barbeque) and two pies. One lemon merangue (Brian likes lemon merangue) and a cherry pie. They're small. And I got some Ben and Jerry's ice cream. Vanilla for the top of the cherry pie. Some other fun flavors for later in the week.
Welp, I guess it's time to slide on my suit. The backyard cam remote has been disabled and I'm ready to go.
Have a great Sunday!

I should have come to your house for dinner last night! Your neighbor stories are hilarious. They make my neighors seem like angels, 'cept when they are playing their music thumpingly loud at 1am on a weeknight.
