1.) So guess who this morning, after 12 days, was a good little soldier and taught herself how to use the new big tv? The one with new-to-her Roku and Youtube TV?
Yep. Good ol' Debra and sheesh! Only took me around 14 minutes to learn what I deem necessary(!) Man, I think Tom only made things appear complicated so I'd stay away from his new baby.
Husbands. heh. ツ
2.) And guess which program I chose to watch first?
The opening episode of A Very Brady Renovation.
Oooo, I'd anticipated this for a year and truly (don't laugh. I grew up a huge Brady fan.) every moment felt like a gift. A long-awaited present, indeed.
(I recall at age 10 running to find my mom, describing to her the first tv commercial for The Brady Bunch. This was, like, August of 1969 and I couldn't wait for September to arrive that year!)
3.) And in celebration? I'll post once again, the photo I took when Barry Williams came to town back in 1997. Here he is with Naomi--
--but it was her mom (and other ladies her age) who acted like total, silly teeny boppers. (Hey. Some things just are what they are.) シ
4.) Wow. Will I ever stop assuming things? For eons I assumed we couldn't buy spray-paint online lest the aerosol cans, Kaboom! Exploded inside steamy-hot UPS trucks.
Well, I'm making up for it. Quickly. My spray-paint from Target arrived and I re-painted all our back patio furniture in 3 days--
And our umbrella stand went from this--
(Much better, right? Had meant to paint this for only 9 years or so.)
5.) Our made-me-a-slave-to-them hedges go away on Monday!
(Yes, those 60 feet of hedges are nice, but really, they are exhausting me. If we were considering moving soon, we'd have kept them, but we aren't. Alas.)
6.) Oh! Calling all Big Band era music fans. Via a random ad on Facebook (because hey, they
7.) I called our go-to carpet cleaning guy, Kevin, and he returned my call the next morning--and was here in 40 minutes! The timing was perfect (he was coming to our town anyway) so this truly felt like another 'God thing.' Color me grateful to Him for His goodness.
8.) Are you familiar with the website, What Should I Read Next? You can plug in your favorite author's name or book titles and a list will (hopefully) pop up with other of the author's books or ones similar to those you've read. Try it!
9.) Basically? My Master Task List changed everything.
I tweaked it a bit: added easy, pleasant tasks on Saturdays and Sundays so to spread my work out more evenly (while keeping my weekends, yes, easy and pleasant), but wow. Daily tasks almost 'mysteriously' get completed, I have no weekend backaches and now I can read verses like this--
"Whoever is slack in his work is a brother to him who destroys". Proverbs 18:9---
--and not feel like a lazy, guilty sluggard. Whew. ッ
10.) The nearby town where we lived at Autumn Cottage? For at least 15 years every pleasant-weather Sunday, people have gathered to fly kites. Is that a lovely thing, or what?
We drive by year after year and say, "Someday we should stop and watch awhile."
Gee, I love New York.
