Got all the errands done yesterday, Bluck. At least I don't have to go to the grocery store again until next week. And I even took the garbage to the dump!
I've been really lax the past year or so about doing my dishes. You see, I don't have a dishwasher because of being on a well. They just use too much water for a well. So I have no where to hide my dirty dishes while waiting for enough to accumulate to was them. Well, I got even lazier than that and would only do them when I ran out of silverware or bowls or...you get the idea. And no they didn't smell because I rinsed them out when putting them in the sink. So by the time I got around to doing them the sink would be overflowing and the counter would usually be full. Nobody sees them but me, right? But every time I'd get around to doing them it would take forever and I'd have a counter full of drying dishes (I never dry them and put them right away, just too much effort when the air will do the job). About 4 days ago I decided I didn't like the looks of the mess and have started doing the dishes nightly. I'm on a 4 day streak now and it does feel nice to have a clean kitchen and sink in the mornings.
Started a new book yesterday while setting on the porch swing just enjoying the afternoon. Boy was that nice. Note to self: get a cushion for the swing, my butt isn't as padded as it used to be and there was some discomfort after setting there for a while. I didn't notice the discomfort while reading but when I got up to go in the house to fix myself some supper it was sore. The book isn't a new one (copyright 1992) but new to me. It's "Hideaway" by Dean Koontz. Seems like a good one. It really gripped me in the beginning. I used to read everything Stephen King wrote until he had his accident. Then his writing changed and I'm not as crazy about him anymore. I'm also reading Catherine Coulter in bed at night (can't remember the name of it) but I don't think she really wrote it. The sentence structure is just so amateur and most of the conversations between characters doesn't make sense. I've read her before and don't remember that being the case with her work. Thank goodness for Amazon, I've got 5 more waiting for me when these are finished.
Sorry I rambled so much on stuff that doesn't interest you. Have a great weekend!!
