Thursday Thoughts

This has been a busy week.

Monday was very exciting. First, deck guy came to finish sealing the deck. It looks prettier and hopefully will be better able to handle the elements. Second, not long after deck guy arrived, yard guy(s) arrived. Finally, fresh, new mulch. The purple catmint was tamed. Weeds were pulled. It looks pretty (for now!).

Tuesday I was in charge of meeting with the guy who came to give us an estimate on doing some work. It's a lot of work that does not need to be immediately done - well, some of it does need to be immediately done - but we'll need to do all of it sometime in the next 2-5 years. It's also the kind of work that costs $XX,XXX. Yipes.

Wednesday was exciting, too. The windows were cleaned! It hadn't been done in... uhh... I'm ashamed to admit. Last winter, there were several days when I looked out at the setting sun and saw the haze/dust/dirt on the windows. It was gross. But the windows were beautifully clear, at least until the overnight rain storm.

Last weekend we went to see Chicago. I've always wanted to see that show so I was very excited when I saw it was coming. My mom wanted to see it, too, so she & my dad went with us. After, we went to dinner at Meat & Potatoes. Everyone ate way too much food but it was so yummy.

Last Sunday's Game of Thrones was one of the best episodes, maybe the best, although I knew (or hoped) what would happen. Really, could it have been any different? If it had been different, I think fans would have revolted.

We've been watching Brain Dead on CBS but aren't sure how we feel about it. I started watching Animal Kingdom on TNT but am not sure I like it enough to keep watching. Person of Interest ended and I think I am satisfied with the series finale. I was ready for it to end.

I read Tuesday Nights in 1980 by Molly Prentiss and enjoyed the novel. It was kind of sad. My library  book pile is at 3 books. The magazine pile is currently at 0, unless you count the National Geographic from 2013 that I've never read but is the perfect size on my C-Table for water & tea instead of using a coaster.
