Mash Up

Not much going on here, so I thought I'd do a little mash up of the week. Well, I guess what is really going on here is Downton Abbey. I figured out I can watch the current season on PBS.com so I've been overdosing. I'm thinking it's not as good as the first two seasons, but I do love the dowager countess Violet. I love the fact that she is called a dowager countess. And I love everything that comes out of her mouth, she is so polite, while being so very rude and straight to the point all at once. I want to be just like her when I grow up! Maybe I'll start calling myself a dowager countess.

Oh, Hello!!?
In other news, look at the excitement occurring right across the street!  Fireworks!!  Well, actually it was someone sawing metal rods. I'm getting a new neighbor. But first they are building the house.




Fortunately, the house is being built on the east end of the property, so I will get to have trees across the street from me and not a new house! I am sure they will be extremely nice and perfect neighbors. Currently, all they have contributed to the hood are a lot of trucks and an excess amount of dirt.

This other excitement this week????

Ack.
Somehow I developed the MOST UNFORTUNATE cut on the end of my nose (it looks worse in real life). I have no idea how or why this showed up, but I can't say it did much for my week. I spent most of the week wanting to place a paper bag over my head and worried that people were staring at me. 

What a week. What else? 


See, it just gets better and better. Plumbing.  My kitchen faucet keeps dripping! After an hour or two, only one trip to the hardware store and lots of swearing, I think it's better. But I have also managed to strip the screw holding the handle on, so that's a bit wonky at the moment and may never come off again. I do realize that something like this should make me all warm and fuzzy with a feeling of self reliance and achievement. But instead, I just feel frustration. I will spent the next six months waiting for the drip drip drip to start again, because I'm sure I did it wrong. Plumbing - like car repair - is something I never should, nor do I want to do.

And finally, there was some good news!  The sun came out!


And although Otto was bummed because I am not letting him outside (he keeps jumping the fence in the back yard), we all got to cuddle on the window sill and pretend it was warm!

Onto next week and more excitement..............
