This is the view out the back door.
I'm not totally sure I understand this. When exactly did we move to Michigan?
Part of the neighbor's tree fell off under the weight of the ice. It fell in our backyard. You can see part of it in the pic above. Thankfully, it missed the sheds and the house. It's kind of funny how tree bits look so much larger on the ground than they do when they are still on the tree.
Practically everything around is still covered in ice. It would be pretty if we didn't have to get out in it every day. I can deal with it as long as the temps stay in the double digits. It might not be what I desire to do or prefer to do, but I can deal with it. I'm still limiting my ventures outside to those things that have to be done. No fun side journeys these days.
I was supposed to be off this week due to budget cuts, but we saved so much money over the last two weeks with weather-related cancellations that now I'm supposed to be working. Supposed to be. But not today. I'm going to the booths instead. I hope that the weather cooperates the rest of the week and I can work. I need it.
I actually saw someone using the phone the other day! I thought about getting a pic, but there was really no way to discreetly do it. It would have made a great conclusion to the whole phone saga. You'll just have to imagine it for yourselves. Eddi-torial Comments: Where the oddball, throw-away joke never really ends.
After the concert last week, the venue sent us an email asking for our feedback. I replied with a glowing email. (Gee! Imagine that!) I got a reply shortly thereafter thanking me for my email. The email also shared that the unanimous opinion of all the venue staff was that Rodney and Emmylou were he "easiest" performers to work with. "No backstage egos at all."
Emmylou has long had a reputation as being very gracious and genuine. She is extremely well-regarded among her peers. Of course, it's one thing to be regarded by your peers and quite another to be praised by all the backstage folks who make the shoe possible! She's quite a lady!
The car got towed away Friday night. They're going to fix it instead of totaling it, which is a relief. What remains to be seen is what happens to our insurance.
Want to see something cute?
She's a flash drive! Keith got her for me for Xmas! I'd been waiting to use her until I had some junking related files I needed to back-up. She's my official junking drive. I love her! He told me that sometimes the perfect gifts are pretty obvious.
|It does feel kind of creepy to pull her legs off to use the drive.|
|Yessir! That's the Amazon Princess I grew up with!|
|I'm going to plaster that WW logo on my forehead and wear it to work on Monday!|
Did some junking Friday and Saturday. No sales happening, so I hit the shops instead. I'll share finds tomorrow. I will share these vintage-style Valentines they have at Barnes and Noble right now. I saw them while I was making my rounds. They're like six or eight dollars a box or something outrageous like that, given that there are only 8 to a package. I'll wait until next week and see if they go on clearance. I thought maybe a few folks might like them!
|Of course there are puppies!|
Why was I junking at Barnes and Noble? Some of you may know why by now. If you don't, I'll tell you later. (It's kind of a sad tale.) There is a hint in the paragraph before these last pics.
My what a random Monday Rambles! Speaking of Valentines, "Your Vintage Valentine of the Day" starts today! Limited engagement! Four days only! That's because Valentines Day is Friday (and because I only have four vintage Valentines to share). Look for a special Valentines post on Friday!
