A Little of This and a Little of That


It’s been another week since my last post.  As usual “work” is just something to just get through.  Just the normal stuff along with a monthly “one on one” with my supervisor.  All good feedback, even a “proud letter” from a customer.  She knows that I’m in retirement mode, but still encourages me to keep up the good work.

Last Wednesday night,  I made a trip out to the Sacramento International Airport to pick up one of my friends, Kyle.  She was returning from a visit with family back east.  I got there a little early and instead of circling the airport past the terminals, Angel and I waited in the “cell phone” lot for free.  It is really handy, you can wait for up to three hours.  We waited for about 30 to 40 minutes.  She called me when she landed and after she claimed her luggage.  I picked her up and we were out of the airport in minutes.  Fortunately there was only light rain on and off on the way home.

During the week I was able to get much of the banking done.  The credit cards are paid off and  most of my bills are set up for payment as they come in each month.  I’m trying to set everything up to be easy to take care of when I am on the road.  Just one more step in the process.


This is the beginning of the project that I started last weekend, now to plant some grass or ground cover in between the pavers.

Unlike the previous weekend, it rained on and off all last week, so on Friday and Saturday I just slept in.  I was able to get the much of the product for my business moved into my “storage” area (aka converted part of the living room)  and watched movies for most of the day.  Sunday we had a meeting and a potluck in the afternoon at church.  As always lots of great food, and of course I ate too much. 

It is now the beginning of another work week.  Upcoming things, an annual follow up doctor visit for past knee surgeries on Friday, company dinner/dance on Saturday and Ted’s birthday on Sunday.

I think I will join Angel and get to bed.

As always,  thanks for visiting

  1. Congratulations on paying off your credit cards! That's great, something I'm still looking forward to doing. :) FYI, though, if you haven't already closed them, don't. It could affect your FICO score and future interest rates.
    Sounds like you're getting all your ducks in a row. The pavers will look great with some ground cover in between.

  2. Good for you, paying off those credit cards!

  3. Love your picture of your pillow puppy! Have a great week!

  4. What a cute dog. What breed is he/she? I'm looking to adopt a little fur baby. ~Tricia

    Angel is a terrier mix,(Jack Russell, Wire haired,and maybe a bit of Westie), I rescued her from the SPCA here in Sacramento last year in February.
