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!
