I woke up this morning at 4:45. There is so much inherently wrong with that on a Saturday morning, but rather than lay in bed and be mad about it, I got on up. I’m grateful I have two whole days of lazy weekend remaining (nap ahoy!) because I took off at noon on Thursday to work with hubby on a big blitz to get our house ready to put back on the market, as on Wednesday 2 separate people called our realtor wanting to see it (it’s NOT on the market at the moment), one of them for today. Thank God I’d already started on the massive list on Monday.
So we have been busting hump. Got all the flowerbeds and trees remulched, mowed, weedeated, weeded, planted fresh flowers in the bed by the mail box, made new hanging baskets, made a few small outdoor repairs, blitz cleaned the inside. Aaaaaaand found out after we were all done that the people who wanted to see it today found out it had only one bathroom and took it off their list.
But whatever. It’s done and now I have a whole weekend to just BE LAZY. Well, my version of lazy, which usually involves a lot of prep cooking for next week, blog posts, ROW80 maintenance, and writing. The weather is gorgeous, so I’m foreseeing a walk with the pooches, perhaps to the dog park if I can get confirmation it’s not a total mud pit after all the rain night before last. And a continuation of our Big Bang Theory marathon, which always makes me desperate for Chinese food. I think that’s all they eat. Every episode.
In conjunction with yesterday’s post about looking for local folks I actually have something in common with, I did discover you can search for people by zip code on Goodreads. You can even compare your books and it’ll tell you whether you actually like any of the same stuff, which I found really cool. I found three ladies a couple towns over who have similar tastes to me, so I added them as friends and sent a brief message saying I was local and hi.
Next up, puzzling out how to tap into the local foodie community.
