Got done with Thursday cleaning and laundry and went shopping. When my son was home from Denver we went to some store's. I got some ideas for his Christmas presents. I went back this morning to get the shirt he was looking at and it was gone in his size. He is 6 ft.2 and weigh's 230, but thank goodness I found it in his size at another store. :) I am glad I am finally in the mood to Christmas shop.

Watching the football game. I finally get to see Tebow live. Crucial game for both teams, but moreso the Jets.

Oh, almost 12 hours to the minute...

I am waiting for the UPS truck. I am expecting my Kindle Fire today.
Whoo-Hoo.

Since I decided to retire (nobody wanted to give me a job!) I've been putting all my efforts into my house to maybe win back some of the depreciation from the economy crash. Inside, along with a thorough cleaning, I am replacing all the screens with pet resistant material, I took down my bedroom curtains and washed them, removed the old (dirty) white 2-inch metal blinds that came with the house and replaced them with 1-inch dark walnut wood blinds, and put the curtains back up. It looks like a different room. I still need to get someone in to steam clean my couch and love seat. The floors are either hardwood or ceramic tile, so the rugs I can clean with my little Bissel machine.

Outside, I am removing all the grass as soon as I can figure a way to get a good sized roto-tiller home from the rental place. Then I will be laying down weed barrier fabric and some red bark ground cover. My plans are some flowering shrubbery, a Zen garden in one corner, maybe a water feature, but definitely a nice, big flowering cherry tree right smack in the middle and a meandering stone path through it all. In the back yard I only have an eight foot by 30 foot grass strip, so that will be small fruit trees, maybe 4 of them. My neighbors have 3 lemon trees that they said I can pick any time I want, so I'm thinking navel orange, peach, plum, and maybe pear.

I don't know what I'll be doing next week...

I believe you will be lying on the floor moaning from the pain of sore muscles.

Nah. If I want sore muscles, I go to the gym. I have a lifetime membership at 24hr Fitness. It costs me $50.00 a year.
