I forgot to mention this yesterday….but Saturday, we had a funny moment.
George had left to go run an errand. I was home by myself. I decided to toss out some old muffins and bread so the critters could have it. So out the back sunroom door, I began throwing the bread and those big old brown muffins out the door. I threw them hard and up in the air and they landed on the ground with a thud. I wanted the birds and squirrels to see them. Then I hear a noise and I can barely see the front of the old Toyota we have parked in the driveway. I see the front door is open and see an arm leaning in. The arm has long sleeves. George never wears long sleeves. I run to the back window and peer out and the figure is gone already. Oh my gosh, is someone trying to steal in pure daylight? Of course nothing in the car should be of value. One might thank them for even taking it off. But still.
George is outside on the driveway getting out of the old Toyota he has driven to run his errands. He hears a thud on the ground. He looks up and sees a brown object raining down from the sky. Oh my gosh is the squirrel throwing walnuts at me? But there is no tree there. What the heck is happening? What is that?
He comes in the house.
Me: Oh good that was you. I thought someone was stealing the car. I was throwing muffins and saw an arm with long sleeves reaching in it. I thought you were still gone. But I see you have your coat on – it must be pretty chilly for you to wear a coat.
Him: Throwing muffins? That is what that noise was. I kept thinking the squirrels were throwing things at me from the tree or that walnuts were dropping, but there was no tree and no squirrel.
What is so funny is that we counter each other all the time like this in nearly everything we do. He’ll lay something out and I’ll put it up. Out of all the rooms in the house, we will pick the same moment to need to be in the same spot. We undo what the other did a lot. It’s always amusing.
I had a surprise in my mailbox this morning. I’ve reached 200 followers. That is awesome. I have not really tried to grow the blog so much as the YouTube channel so I can get a few benefits from that. But in promoting the YouTube some, I’ve promoted the blog b/c that is where the VLOG came from and the videos are an extension of it. I think some are just networking and advertisers or marketers but some are real people just being friendly. Some are as we always know, snoopers. And that is ok too. It’s a public blog. But again, as I said when I reached 50,000 hits! Thank you whoever you are, even the snoopies for the follows. I don’t know that I really had any goals as far as numbers when it came to the blog, but when I saw the hits were going to go over 50,000 soon it was exciting and then also I saw my follow numbers heading toward 200 and made a mental note that would be fun. So it’s nice to see the blog go out there.
What really lights my light is when people comment. It truly makes my day. I get that it is not easy to comment sometimes and people hardly even have time to read much less comment. And people that just don’t want their name out there to be seen on it. LOL. But I always cheer and do summersaults inside when I get that special *ding* on my phone. It has a certain sound and I know it’s a blog comment. So I appreciate those that take time to comment. Truly warms my heart and makes my day. If you don’t that is ok too.
Look at these ornaments I got from Cracker Barrel last week. I had to have them. They were not much. Cracker Barrel always has the cutest ornaments and usually they are inexpensive and make cute gifts to add to a bag or to give to coworkers/friends. We will have an extra little tree this year coming from Mom’s. She gave me one. So I took the liberty to buy the owl as we have an owl out back we hear quite often and the red bird ornament reminds me of my Grandmothers. Two cardinals. One for Mam-ma and one for Nanny.
Well, I started the next iMovie and began working on it. I actually have more material now than I thought. So I will have one that is kinda what we did in Sept and another for October. Something like that. One will be about After Texas, and going to Columbia, and cleaning the house, deer footage and anniversary weekend. And then the one after that will be more fall related, our house decor (not much) another trip to Columbia, And will include some footage from yesterday and a will have more to add to it I’m sure.
I did our big Target order yesterday of just household supplies. Mainly things like shampoo, face wash, face scrub, and the face wipes which I use at bedtime. Also ordered cat food and treats and ordered laundry detergent, softener liquid and softener sheets. Ordered a few crackers for snacking. Things like that. Haven’t done that in a while as it usually takes longer these days to get things. But I’m ordering in advance of when I need them so we’ll be good.
Well, I need to get ready and head on in. It’s supposed to storm today. I guess another front moving through. I hope I can find the missing $1700 from the taxes. lol. I will finish going through all of our employees looking at their gross pay minus their insurance and making sure the numbers add up. Or subtract right I should say. I would like to get to the bottom of who is changing the last names to start with a P. That is just weird.
Much to do after work also today. Need to run to the store and pick up RX (blood pressure meds). Might do a stroll thru to see if anything I want to take for work. I’m tired of trying to figure out good work things to eat that are easy.
I also need to do my orders for the baby shower of a coworker and probably send an extra item for Katy’s upcoming shower. I have something I want to get that she doesn’t know she needs. I need to “reboot” the vitamin/supplement container for another week. And work on the iMovie until dinner.
We also started the next season of Yellowstone as it arrived from Amazon. We just bought it instead of paying for the streaming.
I’ve got to see if Sister Wives is back on. Does anyone know? I keep seeing new articles on them so I figure they must be getting ready to air or have aired. They are all also suddenly more active on Instagram and such.
Well, ok I’m off of here this time. Ya’ll have an excellent day. Take care.
