I don’t know. Even being “retired” there is something about Monday’s. Maybe it’s SWMBO being out of the house.
Was kinda sorta busy this morning when I remembered I had to make a run to COSTCO for those shelves SWMBO wants. And I needed to stop by the MCARC bank and deposit the dues paid last meeting. Time to Boogie!
Almost managed to “man-shop” COSTCO. Almost. Only got sidetracked by the TV’s. And the other Electronics. And the DVD/Blu Ray’s. And the office furniture (chairs). But, other than those I managed to get in, find what I needed, and get out.
Took my computer apart to get a sd card that slipped through the reader. What a pain! Got to clean it out and tightened things up and it’s working pretty good. Decided to sweep while I had the computer out of it’s usual place. Ugh! I need to do that more often!
SWMBO and I were talking a bit last night about being “retired.” She’s worried that I’ll get bored or something. I’m not really worried about it. I have a couple of thousand “projects” I can do. Unfortunately most of them require me to be sitting in front of the computer or tools that I don’t yet have. And I’ll need to get off my ass for some of them. Motivation can be the real problem as far as getting them started. And finished.
Wow. Got some sun for long enough to go for a walk. Wx ain’t bad out there. When it ain’t raining. BTW, hailed like a SOB for one whole minute this afternoon. (Posted to YouTube!)
Well, now we be home safe and (mostly) sound and it’s about that time.
My life just doesn’t change much. Thank Goodness. In my many years I have learned that “usually mundane” has it’s attractions.
Regular chores. Laundry. Was nice enough to take the Dog for a walk. Ground is still soaked though. Been ripping my movies to .mkv format to convert to .mp4. Worked on a couple of usb drives for one of SWMBO’s friends.
SWMBO (mostly) made dinner (broiled steak) and the Missionaries came over for a “get to know ya” visit. I had to cut my part of the visit short to run the MCARC Sunday Evening 2-meter Chat Net. Had only 4 check-ins tonight. I guess the rest of the guys are still on the OLD time! They’ll show up at 2030 and wonder where everyone is.
And that’s about it. I have been “playing” with Sigil again; learning how to make an epub. Not that I have any real idea what I’ll make into an epub. Maybe I’ll type in my life’s story and publish it! Yeah! Then millions of other folks can be as bored as you are (for a price).
BTW, our Renter’s came home last night after over a week away. Made a lot of noise until around 0200. If they do it again tonight I’m going to set my treadmill up in the bedroom and do my walk at 0630 to see how they like trying to sleep through a lot of noise. I’ll be so glad when they move. I just hope they move without raising a ruckus. Wish they’d pay their damned rent too; they’re only $1400 behind. I could do a lot with $1400.
Think I’ll watch “At The Earth’s Core” then go lay down and read awhile.
Got up early and went to the MCARC meeting in Shelton, WA. Almost stopped for a quick breakfast but decided not to. Meeting went well. I’m Treasurer again for another year. I don’t mind. The job really doesn’t take that much time every month and it isn’t hard or anything. Then people started paying their dues for the year!
SWMBO got invited to a friends baptism so she drove to Shelton for that. Didn’t get back home until 1700 or so. So I did the club financial paperwork getting everything ready for me to deposit dues Monday.
SWMBO got home and we loaded up in the car and took off for Teriyaki Chicken in Gig Harbor (it was good) and we were going to go to COSTCO but they were closed by the time we got there. Bummer. SWMBO wanted to buy some more shelves for her closet. Ah well. Made our usual stop at Safeway on the way home.
It has RAINED (hard) since noon today. The drive to/from COSTCO was crappy from the rain. Hydroplaned a couple of times and I wasn’t even going speed limit. At Safeway I had SWMBO stay by the door and pulled the car up to her so we could load our stuff into it. Couple of “Water On Roadway” signs out on the way home.
Which is where we are now. It’s 2100 so I’m watching a bit of the “Late Late Night” before heading off to read awhile. I love to read. I’d be willing to bet that I’ve read 10,000 or more books since I first learned to read. Some take 2-3 days. Some take 2-3 hours. But I have read a lot. Too bad I didn’t read anything that actually taught me something!
