Saturday (Holy Saturday?)

Note: as a fallen away Catholic, I don't recall what today is called. Lets see... Jesus died yesterday but will rise again tomorrow. So, is it "Wait a minute Saturday?" or "Tomorrow's gonna rock your world Saturday?" I dunno....

Personally,I'm going with "Hang on Sloopy, hang on, Saturday."

Anyway, I slept in and had to hustle to make my 9:30 a.m. haircut appointment. From there, I went to the Honey Baked Ham store and redeemed a couple of my coupons (I still have a stash of them from work). I was going to just get the smallest ham I could for my Easter dinner but they were having a sale on the smoked turkey breast, so I got that too.

Then I went to Kroger's and spent an amazing $150.00 to restock.

Back home, I left the truck outside to unload it. I treated Caley on my first trip inside and then made trip after trip of groceries. I finally finished, locked the truck and shut the garage door. Wouldn't you know it, Caley was sitting in her treat spot and meowing loudly. Apparently, her trigger is the garage door going down. I debated with her a little, realized I wasn't going to win and then gave her a few more treats.

Before I shut the garage door, I went out front with my camera, as I noticed some of the daffodils had bloomed. Not only that, but the hyacinths are about to explode!

Back inside, I decided to tackle the damn door window. My neighbor never came back so I guess its up to me!

So, I realized that, without the window, the door practically weighs nothing. So, I figured that I could take it off the hinges. lay it on the window and then screw the frame onto the other side.

But, try as I might, I couldn't get the first hinge pin out. And, I tried everything!!!

By then, I spent almost an hour of this and was seriously pissed. So, I caulked around the opening and went and picked up the window.

Sidebar: That was totally stupid. I'm not supposed to pick up anything more than 30 pounds normally and now only 10 pounds with my arm. But, I was frustrated!

I slid it in and held in place with tape. Then I went on the other side and screwed the frame on.

Finally, my house is secured again! Unless, of course, if you have a sledgehammer, LOL!

I made a smoked turkey sandwich for a late lunch. I made another one for dinner. My daughter Melissa called and we talked for a long while. Then I watched a little TV but went to bed early.


  1. house is secure, but how is your bicep?

  2. Ugly... But one more scar isn't that important, I guess.
