My daughter put together the Ikea Shelves for B and they look very nice. The last piece is the file cabinet. There will be loads of space to put folders, books etc. But, I will want at least half of one shelf empty…one empty 1/2 shelf. In all our bookcases ( we have 2 small ones and a larger teak one) I’m trying to keep to the one empty shelf theme. At least one-half of a shelf. It seems to help with not stuffing everything into the shelves just because there is room. Less stuff, more space.
We still need to drop off the big desk that’s sitting in my van and a bookcase that needs to go. That won’t happen till Saturday since B is gone till late Friday afternoon and it’s too big for me to move and at Goodwill, they won’t help unload due to liability. So, that will have to wait till then.
My son’s birthday is next week and he already got a present in us paying for his car to be fixed. A very expensive present. But, I’m going to get him a gift card for gas as a little present.
WE live in a fairly rural area but close to a main town( Auburn). We rarely see homeless or transients but this last 2 weeks there have been at least 5 weird incidents around here.
Three people had break ins( a car, a garage and something else I can’t remember). Then we saw a person walking thru town last week who was definitely out of character for our little town. no shirt, tons of tattoos ( I’m not prejudiced about tattoos but no shirt and the combination was weird. Plus he seemed out of sorts. ( my projection) BUT on our neighbor hood watch, someone said this guy, no shirt, tattoos, only a pair of slip on shoes, knocked on their door at 10;30 AT NIGHT asking for a drink of water, and a cigarette. WTF???? This was not too far from our house. So clearly something weird and I’m trying not to be too freaked. We usually never lock doors etc. But this week I’ve locked doors and today I’m actually going to buy some mace( pepper spray) for the house. We don’t own guns or anything defensive so….
The other thing is I’ve wanted to install gates at our 2 driveways. I know they could still go over them but gates are a deterrent so. I priced them out and it’ll be @ $200 for each one. So I think well start with one. Of course, we need 2 because our driveway splits and goes in 2 directions. But it’s a start.
It’s very hot here again. It’s supposed to be 104 today. This has been a wicked hot summer so far.
Dinner is whatever Wednesday, so????
