There was no Tuesday movie today because tomorrow is book club day. Plus on the first Tuesday of the month, Barbara has Bunko and tonight it's actually at her house. She said she was going to put out a taco bar...I should slip over there and get me some taco's. (I don't play Bunko). I don't think there is anything out now that we want to see anyway. I have no interest in the "Sex & the City" movie, I never watched the TV program, and the movie doesn't hold any interest for me, either. She & her husband are leaving Saturday on a 7 night Alaskan cruise, so if I go to the movie next Tuesday, I'll have to go alone. The one movie I'm looking forward to is coming out the end of June and that's the "Get Smart" movie with Steve Carrell.
So Wednesday is book club. The visiting author for tomorrow is Sheila Roberts. She also came a few months back, telling us about her book "On Strike For Christmas." Her new book is;
and I went to Target today and got a copy so I can get her to autograph it tomorrow.
After some dry, relatively cool days, it started raining last night. It's supposed to continue thru the weekend. Which I don't mind as it saves me from dragging the hoses around watering everything. However between the wind & the rain..the rhodys are becoming bare of their flowers. By the way, I never did get up to the main entrance to take a new picture of the rhododendrons that line the entrance of the mobile home park where I leave. So here's one from last year...that's my Toyota Rav 4 parked next to them, they must be over 12 feet tall & we enjoy their brilliant pink color, every year at this time.
I've been doing some work around the house, de-cluttering, throwing some things out, getting other stuff ready for drop off at the Thrift Shop, etc. But I'm not even close to being done, I've barely scratched the surface. What started all this was that when I moved in here in Sept 2001...I took a few days off to move out of a huge house where I'd lived for over 13 years, boxes were literally dropped into each room and I started shoving stuff into closets & cupboards. Then I went back to work, working full time until I retired in February 2007. Who wants to spend their days off & vacations sorting thru stuff? You want to be out having a good time. And after I retired last year, I wanted to play some more after working for almost 47 years. Now it's time to get down to business and take just a day off now & then to play. So I'm, determined to finish this project even if it takes a year or more. Meanwhile there's the day to day stuff of normal activities. So it can't be done in a week or even a month.
Well, that's all for now. I need to get off here and go do at least one constructive thing this afternoon. Linda
Ughhh...just heard on the news that gas reached $4.59 a gallon on Orcas Island, which is part of the San Juan Islands here in Washington state. Diesel at the same Shell station is $5.46.
