~ My patio furniture will be arriving tomorrow. So much for that 6 week lead time, eh? Now I’m hard pressed to find weather covers for the pieces, as a front is moving through this week.
~ I went out and bought a bunch of British TV series to hold me over until Case Histories series 2 arrived. I was expecting it would be at least a week – it arrived today.
~ My son likes to say “thanks” whenever we help him with something. But instead of saying “Thanks, Mom” if I hand him his train, he’ll say “Thanks, Train” like it magically appeared in his hand. This goes for everything. Imagine hearing “Thanks, Diaper,” or “Thanks, Milk”…
~ I have an expensive, heavy, beautiful bird bath on my patio. The birds ignore it and drink from the A/C condensation on the ground. Jerks.
~ I planted Zinnias in the spring, and they are all blooming right now. I love the butterflies that swarm it. Unfortunately, the hummingbirds (which we NEVER see here) keep visiting them trying to feed, to no avail. It has gotten to the point where they hover in front of my window, as if to say “Hey! Where’s my shit!?” I feel terrible and must get a feeder for them. I’m just afraid that once I invest, they’ll never come back – especially since we never see them here.
~ I threw the pumpkins in the garden last fall because people keep mentioning they grow on their own. Little did I know that a pumpkin plant is HUGE and is overtaking my walkway/path. Wouldn’t be so bad if they were big pumpkins, but they’re tiny little white ones. Jerks!
~ The Polar Vortex has apparently passed. Went for a walk this morning, and about halfway through, the clouds parted, the sun poured out, and the heat & humidity rained down on us. Had to cut it short by about a mile to keep from dying.
~ This morning, I weighed myself before exercise. I was covered in sweat, burned at least 300 calories, and walked 2 miles. I weighed 2 lbs more. Son of a bitch!
