Karma says thank you, Iggy! (Me, too--daily giggles!)
Well, right before the storm hit yesterday morning this huge truck pulled up in the parking lot.
The man unloaded the big stacks of packages that look like building material...
...and stored them like this in the parking lot.
Why he took up two parking spaces is beyond me. Unless they plan to deliver more? Are they shingles...or siding...? Whatever they are, looks like it isn't going to be quiet around here this fall. Sure have been a lot of repairs around here for a building that is only around 7-8 years old. We have had rain dripping down into the elevator again this summer, so I'm guessing shingles/roofing materials.
The man was just putting the truck back together when it started to sprinkle. As he drove away, the thunderstorm finally released the brief, noisy deluge that I talked about yesterday. (Little did you know I was up and down snapping pictures--hehe!) He had perfect timing, I'll give him that. ;)
These are the extra birthday cards from this year.
I stamped the backs...
...and let them dry.
Did the same for the brand new extra red "wishes" ones...
...and the purple ones.
All safe and sound in a ziplock bag for Leah to take with her last night along with the rest of the bookmarks--tada!
I couldn't resist showing you what the stacks of building materials (whatever they are) looked like after the storm raced thru. Good thing they are on wooden palettes! The guy picked the exact spot that doesn't drain and always looks like a pond after it rains--hehe!
Anyways, Dagan and Leah came after work. Leah brought fresh corn on the cob! Delicious! We tried Garden Burgers made with portabella mushrooms. Don't like those any better than the original Garden Burgers. We all three vastly prefer the Boca Burgers. No more Garden Burgers for me! ;)
Dagan strung a new cord around the living room so there's no cord across the floor again--tada! Leah helped me with rearranging my automatic computer tabs that stay open. (She and I love using them and Dagan can't stand them--hehe!)
Dagan got the DVD player working. But after they left, I tried it and--lo and behold--didn't work again for me--ROFL! When they come back next time, he'll have to let me try it and he can watch to see what I am doing wrong or out of sequence or something? No problem. I always have the McLap in the meantime. :)
Supposed to be warmer today and hit low 80s. It's been soooo nice to have the place opened up day and night, but the heat is slowly returning, I guess. Sunny today, tho.
It feels just wonderful that I can check off something else on my goal list for 2010. One set of birthday cards--done! And I am calling CableOne today and cancelling!! Which means, next, I can clean out the TV stand in the bedroom so that I can give away that TV (and stand) on freecycle, too! Wow! I'll be chuckling at Karma resting on her wooden pillow. And waiting to see when the maintenance man will come to replace the kitchen bulbs (was hard cooking in there last night) and unplug my bathtub drain. What else the day holds? Who knows!
