Weekend Doings.

Another fun-packed weekend is in store!  There are new front brakes for the trusty (and rusty) Ford Focus Wagon  -- which just passed a milestone:  187,000 miles!  You go, girl! (please, please, please)  I will continue siding the run-in shed; the water heater for the poultry needs to be scrubbed up and installed; firewood has to be shuttled; and, if it's warm enough, I will tackle washing the front of the house.  I also need to build a frame to enclose my fuel oil tank and move manure to raised beds and rhubarb bed.

On the fun side, there is a holiday party at the local library on Saturday, to which I've procured an invitation.  On Sunday, I have invited Sylvie to dinner -- luring her with the prospect of re-working my living room!  It needs help.  I am clueless.  She has talent in abundance and she is so good at it!  I will try to take before/after pictures.  I am also going to rearrange my dining area -- this is what I do in the wee hours of the morning when I'm trying to go back to sleep.  It's better than counting sheep.  When I count sheep, I end up worrying if they need to be wormed again, if their hooves need trimming, if they're fat, if I'm a good sheep mother.

I also have to find my cell phone.  It has gone missing.  This is very out-of-the-ordinary for me, as I don't lose things.  I think it might be in my car someplace, as I dialed it up to no avail in the house.  Of course, I have a ridiculous ringtone -- guilty of detesting most ringtones (and cellphones in general), I chose the little tweety bird ring tone.  Unfortunately, it is so unlike a ringtone, that I miss most of my calls - I am standing with my head cocked, wondering what bird it is that I hear faintly in the distance.  Yes, it's the Dodo.

I hope everyone has a marvelous weekend!

  1. I made my cell phone ringtone sound like a "vintage" phone. I (nearly) always hear it but my husband often looks confused when it rings! My neighbor just told me that the ringtone he assigned my number is "Walk Like an Egyptian", LOL

  2. Jenyfer - My nephew has the vintage ringtone. Isn't it funny that it really stands out? I LOVE that - a neighbor with a good sense of humor!

  3. I had the ringtone on my mobile phone ring like a Donkey whenever Paul called! Yes, I'm mean.

  4. CR - Ooooooo. You are a stinker! But that's a great idea. How did you do it? I think even I would notice that sound.

  6. If it's warm enough you will tackle washing the front of your house?? Ummmm . . . perhaps I shouldn't admit this, but we've NEVER washed our house. Well, okay, hosed it down before painting it but only to get rid of all the cobwebby thingies. Please don't tell me I have to wash my house now. I have enough trouble with dishes, clothes, floors, eggs, my body, etc.

  9. Sylvie - Thank you! I found my phone!

    Mama Pea - The front of my house never sees the sun - so this year's four feet of rain created a mold problem - ergo, me washie housie.

    Nancy - Yes'm. That I am.

    Sue - I have changed my ringtone. For now.

  10. Forgot about the library party. The plague will probably keep me home, but we'll see. Wanna wash my house? It's got two stories of mossy stuff.

  11. Whew, I'm glad you explained the house washing thing. I was thinking like Mama Pea that it was something I *should* be doing!
    Have fun at your party! :)
