Weekend invasion into YOUR life: Sat. June 27th

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
A big congrats to soon to be Mrs. Nat. The day looks like its going to be perfect, I hope it is indeed all you imagined your wedding to be.


Nothing much planned here.

I'll go pick up some sale items from the grocery store, I have a parcel to pick up, and snakes to feed and clean this weekend. That should keep me busy.

It is going to be a beautiful sunny day, which is good because then its supposed to rain for a few days

Have a great day folks.

Its my niece's graduation party today, from high school. Where does the time go. Its a pool party so I hope it stays nice. My sister put her big tent up last night, a fast moving storm came through, very windy and destroyed the tent, so I guess we'll be going out this morning and buying a tent.

Have a great day.

Morning All!!!

Gorgeous morning here but I think it is going to be a real scorcher before the day is over.

I have a few things planned for today, they are having an art exhibit down at the town docks that I want to go take a look at. All the works are landscapes of the area and are done by local artists.

Afterwards I am heading off to Walmart to pick up some of their sale items for this week. I also have to pick up cat food, both wet and dry, and some kitty treats. Their treat jar is empty and I am in the doghouse.

Want to check in at the butcher-shop as well they have pork ribs on special so I may pick some up for the freezer.

The kitties are all sprawled out in the center of the living room just close enough to each other to be annoying. I notice Linus poking Pixie a few minutes ago just to get a reaction. Boy they sure are like little kids some days.

Everyone have a great day

I slept in until 8:30 this morning and about to head up for the morning errands - post office and grocery shopping. My house desparately needs to be vacuumed, then I'm going to take another look at an embroidery machine later this afternoon.

And then into the pool I go.

Gary and I ate bad sausage yesterday and are fighting over the bathroom this morning. I WANTED to sleep in until about 10:30, but got as far as 8:00am.

We've had thunderstorms rolling around since yesterday, so it sucks, it's dark and wet, and Gary's head is going nuts.

Hopefully we'll make it to the bank before 3:00, and we've got laundry to deal with....

Other than that, I've had fun listening to Billy and Flowerbelle chase each other around like crazy all morning. Flowerbelle will perpetually be a kitty, so in the end it's great that she's now got a 2-year old to actually play with her!

it's in the mid 50's right not, but is supposed to get up to the low 80's later on...

I am awake, for now. My feline roommates woke me up entirely too early (for being on pain meds) demanding breakfast. I will be continuing to work on updating one of two fan group websites I've offered to take on. neither had been updated in over three years... very bad. I have everything needed on one, so I'm working on that one first. I only got permission to do the second (was begged to?) on Tuesday, and we need to wrangle the tech info away from the old webmaster, as he hasn't done much and he didn't show up to the meeting...

I also have a meeting this afternoon with another group (no web work on this one, thank God), and then back home for more site work and hopefully some sewing... and chores... and packing. Three weeks until I get the keys for the new place...

Sorry.... rambling... I think i'll go make coffee now...

Well I am not a happy camper today. Was planning to go see the big fireworks show here in Madison WI, "Rhythm and Booms"
I have always wanted to go see it, but was always too far, now I am right here in the *cuss words* town and those plans fell completly through due to lack of funds and the person I was going to go with being a big *MANY cuss words*
I was thinking of hopping the bus and going alone just for the fireworks part of the evening, but how depressing is that, and I don't live in the best area and not such a good idea to be traveling alone at night. *big sigh*
Oh well, maybe next year. (it is supposed to storm tonight anyway)

Later, we're going out to lunch and then to our favorite dress shop to see if we can find me something for my Birthday which is in less than two weeks, WOOHOO! . Sort of muggy here today, we had a nice thunderstorm here yesterday afternoon.

We made it to the bank ( ) and we're spending the rest of the storming, hot, wet, horribly humid (outside) afternoon in bed watching movies.

This morning I had my hair cut and colored. Then went to the pet store.

The cats up for adoption are right next to the cat litter. I try to stay away but it could not be avoided. Needless to say I wanted them all. But there was one that tugged at my heart.

If someone had jumped out from behind the window and asked if I needed any help he would be in my house now.

I think I should go to the other pet store next time.

Such a shame about the weather. It's nice here in Philly but with some clouds.

Hey all. It's a nice saturday afternoon. AC is finally off for a few days. Loving the breeze outside. DH is smoking some salmon for dinner in about 30mins. The cats enjoyed their afternoon in the sun outside.

It's a gorgeous day here, but I'm stuck indoors writing my thesis. I came up to where my advisor lives so I could ask him the million and one questions that piled up because I don't see him on a regular basis. I get to go home at the end of next week, stay home for about a week and then come back up to work on the data. Summer is my favorite season; it's a shame to be indoors from sun up to sun down. I'm sure I'll be happy once I graduate.

Come dinner time, work will have to wait. The plan is to escape for some pizza!

I let Gary pick the movies today. So far we've watched Star Trek IV (when they come to earth to save the whales), Star Wars II, and Alien III is playing now.

Trillcat, we love both Ghostbusters movies!

I played with the kitties through most of Star Wars II, and Gary actually managed to nap through most of it! Grabbed one of their little rattley raccoons and tied it to the end of the nub of a feather wand toy. Everyone went bonkers for the "new" toy.

Alien III is one of my favorite movies, also the next one Alien Resurrection. Hmm thanks now I know what to grab at the video store the next time I am in. Round it out with Alien VS Predator and I'll have a creepy fanged dripped droolfest of a movie night.
post #20 of 27
I love all the Alien movies AND all the predator movies. I was REALLY surprised I liked both Alien vs. Predator AND Alien IV!

You must be in Southern CA, because up here east of SF it is hot!

You live closer because our car thermometer said 104 F at 3:30. It was even warm in SF - in the 80's which is unusual for summer - because there is no fog. Should be the same tomorrow.

Hello!!

Productive day for me.

We took our walk this morning stopping to visit with a neighbor down the road. Then started to weed in the veg garden.

Paused after 90 minutes to attend another hosta plant sale and bought two which should be the last of the year. I think I only bought around a dozen or so this year as I'm running (sort of) out of space in my current garden beds.

Then came back and worked another five hours in the veg garden, planting more basil more sweet corn (third time). Spread rotting hay around some of the plants and placed my 26 tomato cages on the plants. The corn area is still in need of some weeding but waiting for the seeds to hopefully germinate. More weeding in the side paths but that I need the tiller for.

So I took a soak in the whirpool tub and am relaxing for the rest of the eveing. Might get some rain in a bit but not looking too good for any quantity. Will have to get the sprinkler out for the raspberries then tomorrow morning.

The cats have been for the most part pretty good cept Bender is a bit chatty at the moment!

I was supposed to do something with friends tonight for my birthday but no one has answered my texts. . Some birthday......Oh and on top of that I have cramps..... Im kinda in the dumps right now. At least my mom is trying to make today special, I really love her.

It was actually kind of warm out (97F). I'm in Eastern California for the time being. Though it was a bit warm, I would have really liked to cool off in the river! I never get a chance to go to the river when I'm here because I'm always working. Also, I don't know anyone here so I have no one to go with.

I know hot. I spent last summer in Redding- hauling 12V batteries, PVC pipe, and digging holes in smokey (from the wildfires) 116F heat!
I don't know how I survived. I actually did get sick from the heat at some point... I thought I'd had enough water, but I got dehydrated. My advisor was angry at me for not drinking enough.

It's getting that hot again here this summer already. Hit 106 today. I'll never forget the smoke from last summer. It literally almost killed me because of my asthma. I vote for no fires this year!
