A Day in the Life

I don't know who started the Day in the Life posts but it sounded like fun and I thought I'd try one too. This is definitely NOT a typical day in my life, not even for a day off as I don't usually hit everything on the same day. Spread the errands out over the week and the loads are usually small enough to ride the bike or it's on the way home from work. :) Plus it's daily exercise and saving gas money at the same time!

Banana bread, it makes a nice breakfast!

Especially while playing around online!

Then it's time to do the housework, running up and down the stairs many, many times!

Three loads of laundry today

and 7 dozen cookies made this morning. Some for the kids, some for a get together with friends on Friday, and some for me!

Running up and down the stairs wasn't enough exercise so I did some Wii Boxing

and Wii bowling. Still didn't tie my 300 perfect game but I hold a new record of 668 pins on the Power Strikes Training field!

Then it's off to do some errands. Here's Mt Hood on the way to the store.

Clackamas Fred Meyer is the store. I needed some mailing tape for to return some stuff to Amazon that was defective. The stuff wasn't marked Fragile or Handle with Care and the box was smashed and dented on my front porch so it's no wonder it didn't work right. :(

Here's the Gladstone Post Office

and the Gladstone Library. Return 2 and pick up 3, no wonder my TBR stack keeps growing!

A quick stop at the Grocery Outlet to see if they've got any bargains I can stock up on! Not today but it was on the way to

my Parents house where I dropped off a couple dozen cookies for the kids

and accompanied Mom on her daily walk while Dad worked in the yard.

Then it was off to the Sellwood Library to pick up a few items that the Clackamas County Library system doesn't have.

Passing Reed College on the way to

the Dental office. The Drill, The Drill, no, please, not The dreaded Drill. 'nough said there. I survived and have the marks to prove it!

Then it was off to the gas station to fill the truck tanks

at the Johnson Creek Fred Meyer where I get a whopping $.10 a gallon off. 22 gallons @ $4.04 = Ouch. But at least both tanks weren't empty, that would have been another 15 gallons.

Then a stop at WinCo on the way home for more groceries since it was on the way home. There's a reason why they tell you to never go grocery shopping on an empty stomach...somehow a dozen donuts found their way into my grocery cart.

Then an unusual stop at a brand new Subway in the area for dinner 'cause I was too lazy to make something tonight!

and finally, it's back Home!

Where I get the RoboMower started cutting the grass while I went in and logged the box of books from Amazon onto the computer! Yeehaw, the new Rogue Angel is here! I know what I'm doing tomorrow! lol

Now it's off to read a bit before going to bed. Gotta finish this one so I can read the latest Annja Creed edventure tomorrow!

License plates seen while out and about:
P TUNER (The sign in the back window said piano tuner)
KICKIN (as in - Still alive and?)

I liked seeing the better sides of Portland. That was fun, especially Mount Hood and all that.

I miss Grocery Outlet. :(

I do not miss the dentist!

Too many trees to see the forest
It seems like you can get into such a routine that you no longer see all there is to see around you. It was nice to take the time to stop and see all the things in the places I go.

Mt. Hood often disappears from that location. Okay, not really, you just can't see it beyond the cloudbank. :)

You don't have something equivalent in your neck of the...I was going to say woods but maybe prairie would be a better analogy?
My problem with GO is that I can't depend on something I want being there. It's a matter of catch it while it's there and I'm not very good at that game. :)

I know what you mean. I have a great dentist but I don't look forward to sitting in that chair. He's thinking of retiring in January and I don't know what I'm going to do after that. He's been my dentist since 1970.

A RoboMower? How does it work? Next think we know, you'll be telling us about your electric car!

It looks like a nice neighborhood.

Here are two plates I saw on Monday:

hahaha, I just might be at that. They have a new place that just popped up down on McLoughlin that sells Green cars that I want to go check out. The last I'd heard, about a year ago, was the Smart Cars - went about 20 miles on a charge. The range is not long enough for the 10K price tag. I'm waiting for more improvements before buying one. :)

The RoboMower runs inside a perimeter. You stake down a wire around the yard (has to have a minimum of 5 feet between sides), turn the controller on so the wire's charged, and the mower is fenced in. It takes a little longer to mow a yard than a conventional mower but since I'm not out there with it - I don't care! lol It also mulches so you don't even have to rake the yard afterward! :D It also has a 3 zone memory for front, back, and side yards.

Her Mansion must have been quite a car, huh? :)
