Got to get up early tomorrow and go to work. It's a good thing I am working this week instead of using up vacation days like most of the other people I work with. I would just spend money that I don't have or watch Netflix all week. So, what did I do with my 4 days off? Not much. I started to get motivated to build a 4'x8' deck in front of my mobile home door but then I added up the cost of the supplies and decided that cinderblock stairs are fine for now. I cleaned the house, did laundry, pulled weeds, trimmed trees. The usual. I cooked stuff. Not all of it was successful. The cheese danish was terrible but the dogs liked it. The T bone steak was over done, the rolls never rose (I tried the quick thaw suggestion) so they were little brickettes. I ate the rolls anyway. The next day I tried making pull-apart bread with the same frozen roll dough. It rose so much that it tried to get out of the pan and the top burned a little. It was edible though. I simmered up all of my ripe tomatoes and made spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce, I'm not sure. It went into the freezer for later. Then I made nachos because I wanted to eat something that I knew would taste good.
I didn't go out to my property. I plan to go after work one of the days this week just to get the bedding to wash, feed the cats and set up my new motion activated camera so I can see if I am feeding my cats or something else. My mother kindly gave me money to buy paint for the barn-shed. It's too cold to paint now but it will warm up soon. I managed to walk the dogs 3 days. I only meant to do it twice but they got so excited when I was sorting out the leashes and harness to donate that I had to give in and take them for a walk again. I take two dogs at a time. The first two go around the block as fast as they can go with a mid-way stop at the pee bush in the alley. The other two go on a slow stroll in order to help exercise Sassy's injured leg. She wants to go fast so when I make her go slow she uses all four legs to push.
Next year is right around the corner and the first 6 months are already too busy. There is no way to get out of it so I have to just jump in and try to stay on track. 16 weeks of school until summer break! Yes, I'm looking forward to it. Not the heat, just the break.
