Not a single Idea what to use up the Day with... yet... OH! Just had a couple minor ones
I have $20 left to buy Lottos and I need Apple and Cran/Grape Juice and Coffee at the Price Copper
And I thought I just might harvest those Five ripening little Tomatoes from the little Plant in the Pot
Such exciting Adventures do await my participation
Now let's go work my Morning puzzles >>> And check my Email and Facebook posts
On Facebook I saw one of those stupid 'Shares' some people without a life post
Something about can ya spell this and this?... And some simple words at that... So easy
So I had to post a Photo of me and my Big Heavy Dictionary to brag about some Words I know
And then my Reply:
Donald Smith: Oh my, not used to such a positive assessment of my excessive verbosity...
I just like big words, they flow so nicely.. Just have to admit though that I did NOT look up those words
One of my longest lasting hobbies has been reading...
In my pre-teens, two of my Aunts would buy me books instead of toys for holidays...
At the time I moved from my Home in Saint Joseph I had amassed over 700 Books in my home library
Then gave most of them away when I moved...
Did that, now what? A shower would be nice, and a quick trip to the Price Chopper
Worked my Lottos, had a Glucerna, won $15 so I headed to the Fast Stop for more
Got my Lottos and some religious discussion with Navru which I do not start... Oh well
Then headed back to scratch off another $15 in Wins, where are those big ones hiding?
Stopped on the way in to harvest those Six little Tomatoes I have been watching turn red
Now what will be a good way to use them for Dinner? I'll think of something
Another episode of Justified and then another Movie and then see ya tomorrow
OK, Morning Computer run all finished at 8 a.m. and no plans... what's to do?
Well one thing, head out to lose some more Money, yeah... I hit the ATM and then the Fast Stop
I had printed out an 8X10 copy of that Photo I had edited for Navru, Ooops, wrong edit
Filled up my big Sprinkler Can, watered a few Plants, then some more sitting and gave it up about 5:30
Back in to set out some Dinner and then on to the Evening's entertainment, yeah a good Day
On to work my Morning online Puzzles and DANG! The same Crossword still from Saturday and all filled out!
And the Jumble, a blank Page just like on Saturday, what's going on with USA Today and their Puzzles?
Now how am I going to while away my Coffee drinking Time? Well I have that Window Cam Video from last Night
I can check the Storm footage and see if there is anything interesting to use
Finally Morning stuff done, off on that wet Day to the Price Chopper for a couple Items
And of course traded in a $15 Winner for more tries and only won back a skinny $5
Then on the way in and out I got a couple Garden Photos, that Sweet Tater plant doing Great
And I saw that he had sent the Photo he wanted me to Edit, in my Dropbox
And so I took a few Minutes to do that and sent it back to him in Email
OK, up at 6 a.m. and the usual first Hour or more on the Computer catching up
And this Morning at 7:15 a.m. is that Thunder? Peeked out on the Window Cam
Hey, it's raining out there again, but the Forecast says Mostly Sunny... Oh well
There it is again... another Thunder roll and I can hear the Rain, like we need more rain
Now maybe the Plants will drown out there instead of die of thirst, crazy Weather lately
And so, thinking of last evening on the TV, I had finished my Movie and took a look at my Blog
I was watching a Video on my Blog from my Computer hooked to the TV
And the Video started 'buffering' (means starting, stopping) and that's irritating
Gave me an idea... What's causing that? I have AT&T High Speed Fiber Cable now
Well, that Computer isn't connected to my Router with a cable, it uses Wi-Fi, maybe that's it?
I had the TV and Computer all hooked up with Cables before they installed my new Floor
I had to re-route all those wires, managed to remove them all from my Computer and Router room
And then the easiest way to hook up the Living room computer was Wi-Fi... and so I did that
Well it was getting late and I was all through with the Evening's entertainment but let's try
I found my longest 'Ethernet' Cable, hooked it up to the Computer and ran it under the Living Room Carpet
Then across the Hall under the Hall Carpet, and then to the Router up on the top Shelf
That took a little doing, moving the Carpet and end Table around, but finally finished
Then I tried that Blog Video again and I could tell everything was sped up... I like that
I had been having a buffering problem with Amazon Prime Movies from that Computer too
Maybe... (I sure hope) I have that problem solved now... I HATE buffering!
Later, the Skies cleared and the Sun was shining Bright so I took a trot out front
And now the Lily Blloms are giving up and falling off, leaving kind of a stubby Stem
I read somewhere online that you should snip off those stems for some reason
So I snipped off about 30 of them, for whatever reason, I hope that's OK
And then another quick trip to the Fast Stop... Traded in my $45 Win, bought $25 More
This time only a $15 Win, but still slightly ahead for the Day... $10 Profit I think
Those Window Cams have sure been given a workout with my Neighbor and Weather checks
They have been way more of an asset that way rather than the very few times I used them on my Computers
And Computer stuff done at 8:30 a.m. so what then? Lots of Photo Screen Shots to edit
Thursday was a busy Photo Day it looks like... Well that is my Number One Hobby ya know
9 a.m. All quiet, have the Storms all departed? Yep, looking brighter out there now
And my Photo editing done, 18 Photos to add to my Videos, some to 'My Gardens in June'
And some to 'My Year 2019 ~ Quarter Two'... Time is passing, halfway through the Year now
Done with Editing at 10 a.m. and the Storms returned with lots of Rain and Boomers
Like we needed any more Rain and noise after the first Hour from 8 to 9 a.m.
Well at least I won't have to water the plants out front for a few Days now
Time to get off the Computer and sample some of that Rhubarb Sauce I made several Days ago
Then catch up with the Morning Non-News that has been so boring lately
And I hate to gripe but sure getting tired of those rude squeaky Women News Anchors
They tend to interrupt the person they are interviewing by spouting their own opinions
And with all those high pitched Voices they sound like a bunch of children!
And that was about it, a couple trips out to try my Lottos luck with not much of that
From then on, just the regular Afternoon and Evening wind down, is this getting boring?
And a mixed bag of Weather Wednesday, had a sample of Clouds and Sunshine and moderate Temps
So what they gonna give us today? 66 Degrees at 8 a.m. and partly Sunny, heading to 87
Well that sounds like it will do... Anything except Cold and Rain make me happy
And again I headed off to the Fast Stop to use up some of that $180 I won on Wednesday
A busy Morning at the Fast Stop, got my Lottos and headed back, and won nothing
Well someone said ya can't win 'em all and I can testify to that, lots of losers
So what else to do? Time for a June catch up Video of the Front Gardens
This time I thought I would use Photos to make the Video instead of my Video Camera
So then took 30 Photos from one end of the front Gardens to the other then added to the Timeline
Added Music and Titles, Rendered and Uploaded to Vimeo and here it is for your boredom
Now off to a new Day
Well I didn't get around to watering out front on Tuesday but we had a nice Rain at TV Time
Thinking of planting more Trunpet Vine seeds, still only one I planted has popped up
And what's the Weather anyway? Computer says 68 Degrees at 11 a.m. (I'm running late)
And heading to 77 and partly Sunny... That should do nicely, warm enough and not too hot
First thing on the way out the Door, a look at that Dahlia I've been waiting for
More Seedlings, but all at one end of the pot, will have to move a couple maybe
I just want to leave three Plants in that Pot
And some more Garden checking out front, looks like we are gonna get some Tomatoes
Five decent sized ones on the Plant in the big Pot, then lots of tiny ones on the small Plants
And a couple now getting some Color and when shall we sample those?
Caught up with the non-News, the Weather report and started on my Entertainment TV
At 4:30 p.m. I fired up the Oven, brought in the Chicken, wrapped in Foil and into the Oven
After another Hour I took the Chicken out of the Oven and put a Potato in to Bake
So, got any good Weather coming, looks kinda blah out there... I'll check
Looks about like Monday, says 67 at 8 a.m. and heading to 83 and partly Cloudy
That should do well for the Day and then the Weatherman said Showers for the Night
8:30 a.m. More like the usual morning, all my Morning Computer stuff done and ready to hit the Shower
And nothing on the Agenda... Well it wouldn't hurt to water the Plants out front
Had lots of rain but they still like an extra boost now and then
OK back to the Fast Stop again, took my Video Camera, planned to take Cloud Video on the way back
Walked in like I was going to take Video but had the Lens Cap on, I ask first
Then Navru wanted to take some Video, handed him the Cam and he played around as I displayed my Winners
Then traded in my $135 worth of Winners and bought $30 more, Got a free 'Pick Three' Ticket
And won an instant $2 on that, still good for the Noon Drawing, then headed out
Headed for the Riss Lake Dam, set up my Tripod and Camera, got some 360 Degree Video of the Clouds
Then back home to work my New Tickets, AHA! First Ticket a $40 Win, then a Dud, then a $5 Win
And then another Dud and done, but that was a $15 Profit, not a bad morning at all
I sent $55 buying tickets and then winning $180, that's a nice profit of $125... and fun too!
Then some more 'Justified'... Watching the whole Series again, and I missed a lot it seems
Next a Movie and ended the Day with another Andre Rieu Concert, yeah a good Day for me!
A check on the Lillies on the Stairs... The topmost Plant finally Bloomed
And One of the Larger Tomatoes in the Pot is getting some Color
Checked the Weather, it said 76 and headed to 85 but mostly Cloudy... Huh?
Went out front to check my Garden and in bright Sunshine! Phooey on the forecast
Take a peek at these Tomatoes I am watching, some BLT Sandwiches on the way?
Traded in my $15 Win, picked out some more and back then to win only $10, what am I doing wrong?
That is, besides buying Lottos Tickets in the first place?
Done for the Afternoon? Not quite, beautiful Clouds overhead again, needed some Cloud Video
Might be handy to use in Videos or something, took the Video Camera up the Hill
Parked up there where I could get a fairly clear view and took a few Panorama Shots
Maybe I can use them some way, have to think about how to do that, wanna see what I mean?
Good Night Irene... Good Night...
Now Friday... End of some people's work week, I don't know what work is, I just have FUN
A Weather check? 74 Degrees at whoops! 11 a.m. already? Saying 85 later and mostly Cloudy
So then a trip out front to check things, most all look OK, a Lilly count maybe on Saturday
Want to see the top most Plant in Bloom, can't tell the difference with the rest of the Blooms
Then a peek at the one of the little Tomato Plants, you can't see in the Photo how many
Some are very tiny, all are small but there at least 26 Tomatoes on that Plant
And there are a few on the other Two Small Plants and the Big Plant has maybe Five bigger 0nes
Back at the Ranchito to test my Luck and it tested low, not a single Winner
Oh yes, I forgot I got a $2 Instant win on my 'Show Me Cash', not much cash there to show
Then I had an Afernoon 'Breakfast' I had put off all Morning
And another walk out back to check my Tomato transplants. seems they are doing OK
And a look at my former Tomato Bed, have you ever heard the expression... 'Growing like a Weed?'
Well look in that Bed, I planted Nothing in there, the Weeds took over
And later at Movie time... What's that Noise? Flipped on the Window Cam
Well here comes that T-Storm they were warning us about on the 5 p.m. News
And who is that out front? Oh... The Lady next door coming home in the dark and wet
So Joe said it was a Perfect Weather Day on Thursday, OK, it was rather pleasant
And I could agree it was a D.N.P. Day but I didn't win big at the Lottery and so...
What are they saying for the fun Day of Friday now... Hey Joe?
Hmmm, looks OK maybe but... Says 66 and Partly Sunny now but Mostly Cloudy later and 76 Degrees
I'll withhold my appraisal until around TV Time before I will give it the D.N.P. rating
And so... Twas Flag Day so first thing out front to replace the Missouri Flag with the USA FLag
And to count the Stairway Lily Blooms, yep over Forty! But no need for a Photo, can't tell the difference
Waiting for the Four Buds on the topmost Plant to bloom, that will make a difference, stay tuned
2 p.m. Lookee we got SUN! And 76 Degrees, that ain't bad... Time for a walk out back
Up the little hill at the side of the Building and over to the Tomato Bed
And both of the Tomato transplants look like they are doing OK for the present
Be nice to get a few Tomatoes from those two orphan plants I found in a Flower Pot
Then around the other side of the Building to check on the Popcorn Roses, doing OK
But the bushes look a bit ragged and have some dead branches, maybe need a little trimming?
And then back inside to do a catchup on my Blog, then a knock on the Door... Who Dat?
Well, surprize! A Volunteer worker at the Nature Sanctuary, hadn't seen for several Years
Then it was just afternoon TV Time, later Dinner and Movie Time
Well now, that was about it for the Day... Nothing special, just another pleasant(?) Day like most
