That's what my Mom always said! I've even been using that as a signature.
Gravity has been rather kind to me so far.

Hmmm, not as many people doing things as there used to be...

I am sitting here thinking about how I just used up my last K cup from that order and when I can scoot to the hardware store to pick up some more to tide me over until I can find another sweet deal.

And wondering what my plan of attack is going to be with the wide hole that keeps appearing where my front deck meets the ground...
I do have a cellar window that opens into that space, I'm just not too sure I want to open it and stick my head in there with a flashlight

Today is the perfect day for that job!

I have not crawled under a porch or into a crawl space since I was 12, came face to face with a mummified flat cat!

You sound like you want to rekindle those childhood memories, Bea

Just sitting here thinking about how we'll have about 300 kids show up at our door tonight and how we have all of about 10 kids on the street actually young enough to trick-or-treat. I mean come ON man, when you no longer need burnt cork to make yourself look like you have stubble it's time to give it up! Two baskets of goodies...one full of cheap crap for the older kids, the nice things for the littles. And the big kids around here are so pushy sometimes I have to get past them to give the little ones their treats. Grrrrr.......

I'm relaxing after my second day at my new job. It's exhausting meeting loads of new people and trying to absorb loads of new information! But I must say the people all seem very nice. The office I work in has windows on two sides with loads of trees and parkland outside and I have been promised a personal tour of the mansion house very soon!

The dining hall (and I do mean "hall" as in panelled walls with a high vaulted ceiling and oil paintings of "important" people dotted around), serves excellent subsidised meals at lunchtime. A hot meal costs 1.90 (about $2.80). Which compares very well with my previous employers' pretty mediocre canteen food which generally cost from 3.50 to 5 ($5.25 - $7.50). Today, I had breadcrumbed baked fillet of salmon, with green beans, carrots and gorgeous herb-buttered new potatoes.

Of course this all means I am doing no cooking in the evening!

You get K cups from a hardware store Pac? (I looked up K cups and it says they are a "coffee brewing system in a cup" - so how come you get them from a hardware store?)

As for the window into the dark and creepy space under the deck - no way I'd go anywhere near it!!
