We had such an exciting weekend that I'm sure you will be perfectly envious when you read about it. lol! After a late breakfast Saturday, BG and I hopped...no, that's an exaggeration on my part...slowly climbed into the truck and headed off to the home center in the Big Town for some more drywall and electrical supplies. Along with a few other things BG needed.
We had some questions and waiting for anyone to show up to help us took some time. Lots of folks there that day. We spent a good 3 hours or more there.
By the time we were finished and ran by another store, we were hungry again. He told me it was my turn to choose where we ate, so I chose the Golden Corral. Remind me to not do that again. There is too much food there to tempt a weak person like myself. What I chose was very good. Fried fish with lots of veggies and one of their yummy rolls. I skipped dessert, although the chocolate covered strawberries were very tempting.
On the way home, both of us talked about how much we hate walking around those huge stores on concrete and how much our backs were hurting.
It was late afternoon when we got home and the first thing we noticed in the house was that it was too warm. After checking the a/c we looked at the vent and saw that the coil was frozen over on the fan up in the attic. A quick call to a friend who works with air/heating units was made and he suggested we just leave the fan running all night and see what happened. I have to admit the a/c filter was very dirty and that seemed to be what the problem was. Everything was fine the next morning when we turned the a/c back on. Lesson No. 1 learned was not to let too much time lapse between filter cleanings.
After we got a floor fan out to help keep cool, I noticed our kitty, Sissy, wanted to go outside. She is the only one we trust to let outside as she almost always comes to the door after a short time and rattles the door knob signaling us that she wants back inside. Well, this time she didn't come to the door. I was sitting with my feet up and my bad ankle throbbing from the day spent walking all over the home center and the last thing I wanted was to have to keep looking for Sissy.
I decided to sleep on the couch and hope to hear Sissy rattling the door knob before too late in the night. She can't meow very loud and most of the time just moves her mouth and doesn't make a sound. I found myself getting up throughout the night and going outside to call to her to come inside. No luck.
BG found Sissy the next morning. She had had her Big Adventure and was ready to come back inside. Probably because she was hungry! Lesson No. 2 learned was to not let her go outside that late in the day ever again.
Today is almost over as I write this. It has been another one of those days. I had to scrub the kitchen floor because someone tracked some unknown substance all over it. It was bad enough that I scrubbed it twice. I vacuumed the house as well as scrubbed the kitchen and bath. Maybe tomorrow I will get some fall decorating done. Fall officially begins this Wednesday!
Happy Monday/Tuesday to you!
