Saturday threatened rain so I headed for the loft (one of my 2010 goals is to board the loft).
The sun came out, so I abandoned the loft and placed the bags of pampas clippings in the sun to dry out. When dry, we stuffed the bags into the car and headed for the tip. Then to my brother for a visit. Then shopping for curtains, bathroom ideas and a new pair of jeans. I'm fed up with the cheap baggy jeans and decided to push the boat out on a pair of Ben Shermans.
On the way back, we picked up a DVD (The Greatest...Pierce Brosnan, Susan Sarandon and Carey Mulligan) along with popcorn, KFC and vanilla fudge and enjoyed the rest of the evening being totally selfish.
Now you see them ...plus a third bag. Just look at that rampant creeper.
I'm such a hypocrite! I promised myself that I'd never eat KFC after discovering how it ends up on our plate. It tasted really nice, but I think I'll try my best to avoid it...unless I'm really, really hungry and too lazy to make something.
Downside...as I lifted the bag of clippings into the container, I was stung by a wasp. How ridiculous I must have looked with my arms in the air and shrieking. It's the second time I've been stung that I can recall and it isn't nice.
Actually, I was stung twice...once by the wasp and the other by the cost of KFC.
It's Sunday now and I feel very happy. I enjoyed the lesson about proverbs and the characteristics of the church Christ set up originally.
We are back home now and the weather is good enough to sit in the garden for lunch and a walk after it.
The worst part of last week...having to go to work.
The best part of last week...having a job that affords me luxuries from time to time.
I'm thinking I should make the most of having a job because I could easily lose it.
Stop spending and get back to simple ways. The simple ways are always best.
