Random Fridayness

Two Spotted Eagle Rays inside the house

Itsa FRIDAY! It rained last night and it’s lighting-ey this morning.

Above in the picture are two spotted eagle rays. I had one, and had the other and decided to take a picture of them both.

Last night I considered going to Movie Night, but went outside and it was raining. Later, I checcked the Westin webcam and movie night looked like I was missing a good one. But a few minutes after I took this screenshot, I looked again and there were water droplets all over the camera. So it did rain at movie night after the below picture was taken. I don’t even know what the movie was anyway. Someone else told me that Tom Felton, the actor who played Draco Malfoy was there.

And it’s Friday, The only thing planned for the weekend are more house repairs (electrical) and lunch with the wife.

Have a good weathered weekend!

Grateful

Today I’m glad to just be sitting here with a cup of coffee. I woke up before the alarm, about an hour before, and couldn’t get back to sleep. Right now I’m tired but I feel very calm.

My electric bill this month was $324. That’s almost double what it was for June last year. I think the reason is 2 air conditioners running instead of just one. Is the apartment in the house. We haven’t even hit the hot months yet.

Elsa continues to move north. Looks like my old homestead, Chesapeake Virginia, is going to get some rain.

Tonight is movie night at the Weston, I think we have a good movie and good weather so it’ll probably happen. I’m going to get there pizza probably, Their jerk chicken was good. , someone gave me a slice a couple weeks ago. Jerk chicken pizza! Yeah baby!

Have a great pre-Fridayday!

Goldeneye

Super top secret agent and international spy Goldeneye, here disguised as a frog.

I took this last night. Pretty amazing gold frog and gold eyes.

I also discovered some rotten wood in my eaves last night. I was chasing ants. I think I can fix the eave, the ants I might need some help with, they’re everywhere. They eat potted plants from the roots up. They’re in the bathroom, they’re on the roof. In the yard. Everywhere, all sizes. Big and small and microscopic almost.

I wish the frog would eat all the ants.

Have a Happy Hump Day.

My Current Book

The Joy of Less, A Minimalist Living Guide: How to Declutter, Organize, and Simplify Your Life.

It’s not a bad book, kinda dry, lots of repetition. I’m about a little over half way done. There’s lots of useful information. I’m incorporating a lot of it, one area at a time.

Just for the fun of it, ask a random person if they have an old, dead printer or computer monitor hanging around their house. They probably do, I do and thought everybody did.

I’m not throwing away anything that belongs to the wife, except old medicines and perishables perishables. But I’m majorly cleaning.

The book reminds me of when I was packing to move here from the USA. I was clearing my house and I would throw a precious artifact in the garbage and feel incredible pain. Hand with item hovering over the can. But as soon as the object left my hands and fell into the trash can, the pain disappeared. Then I would be throwing another artifact away and look into the trash can and see the old artifact and the payment return. The secret is don’t look, you won’t hurt.

So this is a good exercise. Lots of old good stuff going to the humane society, partly because having a yard sale is too much hassle.

Have a happy hump day!

I forgot to mention that we got a new Fridge last Friday. Ours died a couple times in the past two weeks and the repairman said it was kaput.

It’s okay I rekkon. Looks smaller inside but mathematically it’s not

Still cloudy here. Not much rain though.

have a good one!

Fridge Died Phone Died Internet Down

Last Friday our fridge quit working. Got it fixed Saturday. Tuesday night, it died again. Repairman said it’s dead this time.

Yesterday my new-ish phone the LG G4 died. I was looking at Google news, when the phone crashed and got stuck on the reboot screen. I moved back to my old Samsung S III.

I’m on the back porch, contemplating taking a sick day so I can get a new refrigerator.

Also, the internet has been off and on for days. I planned on posting from work yesterday, but the internet was down till lunch.

What a week!

Happy Friday!

It’s Friday, I am ready for the weekend.

My Wife bought a pot hanger she wants me to install in the kitchen. 20160401_065257

The problem is that the space is drywall and the studs don’t line up how I’d like, so I have to figure out what to do about that…. A trip to the hardware store is in order.

Other than that, looks like gooe weather for a beachy weekend!
