further adventures in homeownership

at 9a I got my hair cut - $32
at 11a I got a #(*$&-load of wood delivered to my driveway - $100
at 11:30a a nice couple in their twenties came to "do" my lawn - $75
A productive Saturday - priceless
Homeownership has its privileges.
Not sure what those are yet, but I'm sure that it does ;)

M and Jwo will be here later
And later I will have to recaulk the basement window
(I'm ripping it out so that I can just throw the wood in from the driveway)
I'd rather replace it, but that probably won't happen today

Hooray for productive Saturdays! :)
Maybe I'll even stain those sills I started in May ;)

Hairdresser says I should sell my house RIGHT NOW because the market's so good.
Oh, and that I should have a baby, too.
He tells me these things while he's ripping out my eyebrows.

Oh, and I rescued a clove from the garbage last night. P laughed at me.
It was the best thing he could have done. C'mon, it WAS pretty funny.
The best thing I ever learned to do was to not take myself too seriously.
I am my life's own comedic relief ;)

OK. Back to homeownering. Everybody thinks that it's going to be a rough winter-- even worse than last year.

And last year was BAD.

Hope you're all having a great day :)

On the other hand, maybe I've just gotten too good at firewood tetris

At 11:30am, the lawn guy showed up. He quoted me $75 and said it would take about an hour or so.



I don't recognize my yard. The only reason I know it's mine is because it's attached to the house. WOW.

I will definitely have him do a lot more work for me. He'll be back tomorrow to trim the trees and split some wood.

The firewood is all stacked in the basement. M defenestrated* the wood, I stacked it.

The wood guy shorted me on my face cord. It should be 8' x 4' stacked-- it was barely 5' x 4' stacked, if that. It was also not as high quality as last year. I know there's a firewood shortage and all, but dayam. He'll dump more off at some unspecified point in future. Tomorrow, perhaps?

I'm SO tired. So is M. We had Plans to do more Stuff, but now we've decided to relax for the rest of the night-- Italian food (delivered) and Holy Grail. Hooray!

Heh. Lawnguy JUST finished. I paid him $100, even though he didn't trim the forsythia ;)

Food's here!!! And twenty minutes early, at that! It's a Good Day :)

* Hm. Perhaps I should say she fenestrated it, since it was incoming, not outgoing...
