Just Staring Out The Window

Yep, I'm just staring out the window today. It is yet another overcast day with rain in the forecast. So it looks like I will not be able to be outside. And things to do inside has come to a standstill as well. But since I have been having mishaps maybe it is best that I just settle down and do nothing.

One day this week, I really can't remember, or I would really like to say, I would like to forget, I opened the windows to let some fresh air in. Not thinking about how windy it was out, I stepped out of the room just about the time I heard a loud crash. I ran back into the room and I had a broken lamp on the floor. So I retrieved a small wastebasket and picked up all the glass I could visibly see than got the vacuum cleaner out and got the really fine pieces up. I found it really odd, because I've opened up the windows many times with that lamp close by and nothing happened. Anyway, it looks like I have to get a new lamp.

And then, yesterday (which was Thursday) I decided I was going to mow. No big deal. I started the mower, engaged the blade. Strange it didn't make it's usual engaging sound, I thought to myself. I made one round and noticed the grass was not being cut. Darn, now the mower was broke. Into the garage it went. It looks like hubby is going to have to fix it. The first thing hubby noticed when he looked at it was that the belt either broke or came off. As you can imagine, it won't be until this weekend before it is fixed.

So today, I'm just going to spend some time online and do very little around the house. Hopefully I can stay out of trouble.

When I lived in town it was heat to A/C. But with all the trees we have about, we seem to get some really nice breezes. But trust me, there will be a time when the A/C will have to be running all the time. I thought the lamp breaking was strange as well. Hm-m, maybe it just got tired of being hit by the curtain.

rosepetal I hate grey overcast days. We are having the same kind of day here. But I have my kids this weekend so I will be kept busy. Sorry about the lamp. Just chill, maybe watch some TV. We all need days to do nothing.

I'm not sure what was going on. Maybe it knew something I didn't. Anyway, I have had company since Mother's Day. I'm sure glad I cleaned the glass up real well.

I guess I ended up chilling. I had a week of company. It pretty much kept me away from almost everything.

rosepetal Company can become overbearing sometimes. My kids I obviously don't mind. I like it quiet more now than when I was younger.
