Stood up!

I woke up early on Saturday. But when the sun came up, it was beautiful. I had my list, so I hit the ground running!

I went to my 9:00 a.m. massage appointment. Margaret and I talked about spring, gardens and the 24 heirloom tomatoes she's got growing to transplant. She came outside with me and we walked around her front gardens.

Next I got my hair cut. Then I went to Kroger's and got my groceries. Finally, I stopped at Home Depot and got some caulk. I raced home because it was almost noon and a Home Depot rep was supposed to be at the house at 12:30.

Sidebar: I had inquired what a tub liner would cost (my tub looks like crap but I damn sure don't want to take it out) and they said that somebody would have to come to the house.

Bear in mind I not only got an email, reminding me of the appointment, but I also got a phone call to make sure I'd be here.

You guessed it! Nobody showed up!!! I sat in the living room (so I wouldn't miss them) for an hour. I was p*ssed!!!

I started some charcoal around 4:00 p.m. No, it wasn't all that warm, but it was so sunny it pretty much begged you to go outside. I checked on my gardens and found the crocus on Jake's patio had gotten bigger and some of the crocus bulbs I planted last fall were now flowering.

I grilled some hot dogs (for next week) and a rib eye steak (for tonight). I "baked" a russet potato in the microwave and them put it on the grill to crisp the skin a bit.

Dinner was delicious!

I cleaned up the kitchen and then watched some DIY shows until bed time.


  1. Did you call Home Depot? Perhaps you'll get something free or discounted. Especially once they hear you've outed them on quite possibly the most read blog in the blogosphere! Dinner sounds great!

  2. I thought I'd call them on Monday and bitch.
