So talking about this made me go to Amazon and look around (talk about getting distracted by shiny things, LOL) and I found a bottle to try, so I put it in my cart for the next time I purchase something.

Back to normal programming, hahahahaha.

I do the iced tea in water bottles too because I like to have a lid on my drinks. I finally went out and bought a cup with a lid and straw just for that.

I need to run to the store when Dakota gets back for a little bit of shopping. Mom's birthday is tomorrow and everyone's coming over for enchillada pie and cake. Heh, it also happens to be our no meat night so I've warned sis and her family, Caleb's bestie and Kota's bf that the ground beef will be replaced with black beans. Last time we did that, my family loved it so I'm hoping everyone else does too.

I've got a little cleaning to do when I get back from the store. Little bit of picking up and vacuuming. I may do that downstairs bathroom though might wait for that for tomorrow.

Well my rain poncho worked perfectly, so now I am going to go and adjust it for our next storm, which is coming later today. I think it will be rainy until Saturday.

Today I am still working on my floors and my budget.

And still sneezing my head off, darnit.

Went out to check my mail....Sylvester was meowing at the door like I had abandoned them, LOL.

Nothing I am waiting for, so annoying. My last Amazon order has been a pain in the butt! I got the wrong books, the seller has taken care of that and I have one item that supposedly was maybe delivered last week (the tracking number doesn't work) and I am waiting to hear back on that one. I think I need to pay attention to the seller ratings, LOL, I never even look.

Thursday's Mission

We did a pretty thorough full house cleaning for company last night for moms birthday get together. So today was basically dishes and that was about it.

Don't have all that much to do tomorrow either. I want to go to the farmers market, but once again it's supposed to be cold, windy, and higher chance of rain so I don't think that's going to happen this week.

Heh, Dipo, I had ground turkey defrosted for dinner and no clue what to do with it. Remembered I had left over pasta and a couple half bags of frozen veggies so I threw it all together with some onions and made soup. Turned out pretty good.

My niece ordered a necklace from Amazon last week and had it mailed to my house. It was supposed to be here last Friday, didn't come in the mail. About 7 that night, I got a notice that my amazon package was delivered and thought, weird, let me check the porch. Sure enough, there was this big yellow padded envelope sitting there on the porch. With this tiny little necklace. I can't figure out why the heck they ship small things in big packages, doesn't make any sense to me.

Went to get some coffee, got distracted by shiny things, LOL... Ended up cleaning the kitty feeding station, the top of the bookcase, answering machine and phone, then dumped out the bowls that hold my onions - washed them, then cleaned the coffee maker and counter it sits on. Loaded the dishwasher and washed the pots, then scrubbed the sink. Then I wiped out a couple of shelves in the fridge!

Now I am enjoying my coffee, LOL.

Yep, the seller sez that DHL seems to have lost my package, and it was a small item so that seems reasonable, I told them to give me a refund, and got it at Safeway. When I order I don't always know if it is going to be someone other than Amazon who delivers.

I have been using Staples, it is amazing how much of the same stuff they have for very similar prices, and it is practically next day delivery with no shipping costs. But my discover cash back bonus is there and I get amazon gift cards from the points on my Visa. I need to see if I can get a Staples gift card.

I need to get the dishwasher unloaded, clean up the kitchen a tiny bit, and maybe do some more mopping.

I refilled water and soda bottles and swept the balcony yesterday, need to do some more work out there.

Oh and I got the mail, my new Janet Evanovich books finally got here!!! so I need to process the mail, mostly recycle it. But I did take out recycling, newspapers and kitty poop when I went to get the mail, LOL.

Looking forward to a nice weekend.

Made some potato salad for the weekend - its in the fridge; pots/pans, etc soaking in soapy hot water. Got the rest of the kitchen cleaned up, scrubbed the stove.

All ready for a sunny, warm weekend. I need to decide if I want to make anything else, maybe pull the hamburger patties out of the freezer.

Heh, today was Darren's companys family fun day, this year back at Six Flags. Me and Darren don't do Six Flags anymore, I don't handle the heat all that well (and that mountain gets hot) and both of us complain for days afterwards about feeling beat up after a day of roller coasters. So, Kota and my middle niece (neither Caleb nor oldest niece enjoy roller coasters) took Kota's boyfriend and nieces buddy and they went. After a rough start to the day for Kota (she'd just pulled out her phone to text parents that they'd made it there when a little girl ran by, knocked into her, sent her cell phone flying, and shattered the screen, sigh,) they've been having a pretty good time apparently.

Darren and I instead went to the renaissance faire and had a blast. Still pretty hot, but at least part of it was in the shade and it wasn't on a mountain, lol.

I have no plans for the rest of the night. Tomorrow I'll take Kota to ATT and see if we can get her phone fixed or if I'm going to have to buy her a new one.

It was pretty warm here today as well, 80's, I would like it to stay in the 70's for a while longer.

Once again the kitchen is all cleaned up, hopefully for the day, LOL. Having dinner with some friends tonight - margaritas and mexican food - yum, we are going to dine on the patio because the weather is so nice.

Darn about the phone, is it so shattered you can't see anything? You would think they would make a shatterproof screen.

Monday's Mission

The whole top half of the screen is completely shattered, with pieces missing. The bottom half is a spiderweb of cracks. And while she was getting the audio dings for texts and stuff, the screen itself wouldn't even come on. The stupid thing is because I know how easy it is to break them, the first thing we bought when we got new phones was the screen protectors and good cases that protect, not just look cute. Unfortunately, she had just opened the case to text us and when the girl bumped into her and the phone went flying it hit the ground wrong and bounced which was why it shattered and cracked.

The good thing about it all...I refuse to spend a small fortune buying iphones. We go for the samsung phones with prepaid monthly plans, so fairly affordable phones. And she was able to switch the sim card from the old phone to the new one and kept her number and transferred some of her stuff. She "lost" a lot of pictures. But because she's a teenage girl in this day and age she had the majority either backed up on her computer or posted to social media and for the rest she didn't have back ups or posted somewhere else, her boyfriend had them. She is missing a few old pictures, like Harvey from when she was growing up (and those are pics that can't be replaced,) but I'm pretty sure I have a lot of those on a thumb drive somewhere.

Did some grocery shopping today after going shopping for the phone. Didn't do a whole lot else, took it easy after spending most of Saturday in the sun.

Tomorrow, not sure what I'll do. I need to do some minor picking up around the house. Haven't decided what else I'll do. Might spend some time reading on the porch it's supposed to be in the upper 80's.

Smart move on the phones, the other phones work just as well! I hope the little girl was at least told to pay attention because her actions have consequences. Glad she has at least some of it backed up, just reminds us that we need to back stuff up regularly...I should put that on my list for today.

I have a different list with my contact names and numbers because one time when I changed phones it they didn't move over and I was sure glad I had them elsewhere, LOL.

Not sure what I will do today, I do have some things that need to be done and I think it may be the first time in a while that I water the plants by hand.

I did notice that I need to make some more hummingbird food, so need to add that to the list.

Kind of spring cleaning, I made some coffee so while that was brewing I pulled everything off the small bookcase I have in the kitchen. It really just holds my answering machine and phone since the coffee maker takes the counter where they would need to be.

Anyway, I can't remember when the last time I cleaned it out/wiped it down. So now that is done and I recycled some paper bags, pulled out my recipes from blue apron to review and see if I should keep them, windexed the whole thing and put it back together.

Now I need to research how long you can keep girl scout cookies, I have 2 unopened boxes, LOL. I think they are several years old.

Oh and I am making hummingbird food too.

Everything is put back together and looks great. When I moved the trashcan to clean it I found a bit of cobwebs and dirt behind it (I don't really use it much, except for dry stuff, I use small bags for the wet stinky stuff) so I grabbed my rag and wiped down the wall and baseboard.

And I refilled a bunch of water bottles.

Now I get to go out on my balcony, have a glass of wine and read my book!

I've been picking up here and there the last couple days. I did go to Costco yesterday for a few things...and for once, it actually was a few things.

Planning on doing a load of laundry today and I've got to rearrange the dining room because my craft table is right in front of the window with the swamp cooler in it which is so not going to work once we start using the swamp cooler again. It'll be a couple weeks at least before we're ready to use the swamp cooler, but I should get sorted before then, lol.

Got the kitchen cleaned up, dishwasher is running. Further in the spring clean up spirit I pulled the "umbrella stand basket" out of the closet and dumped it out. LMAO I found some really cute black rain booties that go over heels (that I never wore); a rain poncho from Universal Studios that I totally I forgot I got in the 90's; and a couple of dusty umbrellas.

I am going to use the umbrella basket elsewhere and keep the umbrellas on the shelf in the foyer.

I made a dental cleaning appointment for next week, just so happened they had a cancellation that works for me...yeah, LOL. Now to arrange for may Lyft.

Just cleaned out my one drawer in the bath vanity, found a bunch of stuff to throw away, it was the "hair" drawer, LOL. Cleaned my hairbrush and the drawer is back in place.

Next up is the dental drawer (the one that Sylvester opens and tries to dump on the floor). I will organize all the free stuff my hygienist gives me.
