I decided to put a decorative film on my living room window. I like the look of it better than the look of the window, so that was a cheap fix. More on that below.
I went out this morning to the grocery store and to pay my rent. The manager is apparently afraid to drive on the roads, so had to drop my check in the slot. I didn’t have any problem driving around, but then I drive a four wheel drive SUV.
At the store I bought two pounds of ground beef and I’m going to have Nathan cook us a meatloaf. I’m sure his would be better than mine, and he always has all the fresh veggies to add in.
Me, I add a meatloaf packet and breadcrumbs, then ketchup and milk along with eggs and call it good. I will be anxious to see what he puts in it.
My doctor called and said I was low on potassium. So I got bananas and dark greens for salad. I don’t know what else you can do to up your potassium. Guess I’ll Google it like I do most everything else.
Lawsy it’s cold outside! I still have not bought any gloves and there was ice on my windows this morning. Took a lot of scraping so I could even see out.
I.Am.Ready.For.Spring! As you can see in the photo above, I’ve got my old gardening magazines right next to where I sit and have been idly thumbing through them.
My little Duraflame stove is hissing along and I’m thankful to have it. This is the coldest winter I recall in a long time around these parts.
After I checked out at the Walmart market I was steering my cart along ready to leave. It was early and not many people were out yet.
There were two men just standing in the middle of the space to get to the door. Truly just standing there. I had to ask them several times to move so I could get going.
I don’t know about you, but when I stop to chew the cud or whatever they were doing, I get the heck out of the way so other people can pass me. Well, me chewing the cud while in a store would be a rarity. I’m all business when I’m shopping.
This is Charlie just a bit ago. He has the strangest expression on his face. Kind of a dumbfounded look.
Then instead of saying “oh I’m sorry to be in your way,” they just kind of gave me the old stink eye. Well get on out of the way and think of someone besides yourself.
Yesterday I was in Home Depot buying window film for Nathan to put on my living room window. I asked when I walked in where it was. She told me Aisle 13. I go to Aisle 13 and it isn’t there.
So here comes this man who worked there on one of those little scooters. And so I ask him. He says go ask the window guy and points his little section out. I ask the man sitting in the window section and he says: “Ah no, they’re all the way at the other end of the store.”
I mentioned to him that I was directed to his section for help. In other words I wanted him to show me so I wouldn’t have to keep circling the darned store. But he proclaimed that he didn’t go down there and deal with that kind of thing.
Okay, suit yourself. Sit there doing absolutely nothing and make me go hunting for it. The woman at the front who first directed me felt bad when I told her and gave me a $15 discount.
I asked her what all these men had to do that they couldn’t help a customer. And she said: “I don’t know. This is why I am single and live alone.”
My thoughts exactly.
So now it’s on my front window and it looks a lot better. Not only that, but I don’t have to put the shades down at night and it will help block the sun when summer gets here.
Speaking of sun, there is none to be found today. Just a cold gray overcast day.
We’re ready for you, springtime! Any old time you want to waltz on in the doors are wide open for you!
When I bought this film I wasn’t thinking of Ivy not being able to see out that window as well anymore. Oh well, at least she has a smorgasbord of birds to watch from the French doors. And that’s as close as she’s getting.
I was buying Charlie’s medication at the vet’s office the other day. I haven’t been able to locate them online. Enalapril and Salix I think is how they’re spelled, since I don’t want to get up and go look.
Anyway I asked the woman if I should start giving Ivy adult cat food. I’ve been feeding her kitten food so far. But Ivy is far from a kitten in size now. She told me to go ahead and feed her adult cat food, so I picked some up this morning. Ivy is about nine months old now.
And right this minute Ivy is proclaiming that it’s lunch time, aside from the fact that I fed her breakfast just a few hours ago and of course it’s all gone. She thinks it’s lunch time around 10-10:30.
Of course I got window film with leaves on it because it reminded me of nature. What do you think? Have you ever done this to any of your windows?
