I hope everyone had a great weekend. We are headed for an over abundance of triple digits to describe our temperature this week and I'm NOT ready. I asked Mother Nature for a few more weeks of temps in the 90's and well...er..she wasn't very nice when she said "no".
I read that many of you had a lousy week last week. I think you must have passed that to me Sunday. I was out running on the
Note to self: Catch and dispose of hole dwellers. Fill holes.
Then I stepped in gooey poo. Oh, ick, ick, ICK!
Note to self: Look down next time. Find animal that left poo and see above for description of hole.
Now don't call PETA, OK?
I finally finished my run and made it home. Fortunately, Hubby was very sympathetic and let me whine for a few minutes.
Running while the sun is up has resulted in nicely tanned arms and almost tan legs but what's up with my nose? It stays red most of the time. I'm starting to feel like poor Rudolph and it appears as if Rudolph has also found the poo!
Yeah. I know. It's time to break out the sunblock. I need to get rid of the sweatband line on my face, too.
I still have more brain cells than my neighbor. Late Saturday afternoon, in the heat, she's out working in the yard next door to her property. I'm playing nosy neighbor from the comfort of my A/C and my bay window. This property is directly behind us and has been sold to a family that does not live in the neighborhood. The new owners are doing NOTHING to keep the
Apparently, my neighbor grew tired of looking at the mess. She was soon joined by her entire family, including grand-kiddies. Oh yeah. I'm sure that was fun for them. I enjoyed watching them as I sipped some wine, though.
We've been told the new owners will be altering the hangar in some way in order to build a house around it. Uh huh. I wonder if they're interested in indoor plumbing.
Anyhowsit, last year, Hubby tried to do his part caring for this property by running his mower up and down a few times. It was still owned by folks living in the neighborhood and he was just helping out. This same neighbor comes out of her house and starts fussing at him because he's "throwing leaves towards her property". There is no pleasing this woman. So, yes, more power to you, Neighbor. Clear, clean, mow, weed-eat, burn the place down, whatever. Just don't get heatstroke. I don't want to practice first aid skills on you. I'd have to put down my wine.
On the other hand, maybe I don't want her to get too industrious over there. She might find the bodies I've buried.....
In other news, we should be getting a new roof at some point this week. I seriously doubt I'll be greeted with this as one of my roofers:
