Update on what's been happening lately,
Labor day weekend DH and I got a lot done around the house. DH cleaned out the storage shed, he pulled EVERYTHING out of it, and then cleaned out the dirt, old bees nests and cobwebs. I then went through every box and tote in the shed, sorting out what to keep (and go in the house), what to put back in the shed, and what to give away/ebay/freecycle. We also got up on the roof and painted sealant on all the seams of the roof, this needs to be done about every 2 years, and it has been 2 years since we moved in, so it has been at least that long. While DH was cleaning out the shed I was on the porch scraping away at the old paint on the porch, and sanding the edges. I got some off but I need to work on it some more, I got a different style scraper, we'll see if paint comes off more effectively.
I had a job interview at Needle Nook, my Local Yarn Store (LYS), a few weeks ago. They called yesterday and said they had found someone to fill the position, someone not me. So disappointed.
This weekend I sold my plasma successfully, then I went to Costco in Lewiston with 'C'. I stayed in my budget, just barely but I did. I love shopping at Costco and getting things I know we will need and use in bulk at a lower price. Later we went to Macy's for their One Day Sale, I got some new pants, an embroidered peasant blouse, and an apple slicer/corer. Then on Sunday DH and I went on a bike ride, to Pullman and back. We haven't done this in a long time, a very long time. I hurt so bad Sunday night and all day Monday.
We've been watching Medium lately, it's a pretty good show. We just finished watching Season 2 of How I Met Your Mother, very funny show.
I've been reading the Witch series by Kim Harrison, I'm currently on Every Which Way but Dead (book 3). To see some of the books in my collection go look at my Library Thing catalog.
That's about it for now.
