Tues. Sept. 7, 2021 – let’s get this party started…

Hot and humid again. It is starting a bit cooler in the morning but still getting hot in the afternoon, especially if the sun comes out. Yesterday was so humid water wasn’t drying outside, despite the 100F + temps.

So I hid inside. Like brave Sir Robin, I bravely ran away from my work. Jiminy Christmas it was unpleasant out. Frankly my back hurt, I had auctions closing all day, and no one in the family wanted to do anything either. Down day all around.

Which means twice as much stuff to do today.

At least I won most of the stuff I wanted in the auction. All home stuff. We gave away our ‘child gates’ and now we need them to keep the puppy out of the only carpeted room. We’ve been improvising with limited success and a whole lotta hassle, so I got a couple. And some other stuff for the house, the wife, or the children. I’m just being prepared when I say “start getting your Christmas stuff together” because price increases and supply chain disruptions could limit availability later.

I wouldn’t wait ’til the last minute for anything anymore. Even amazon isn’t shipping as quickly as before on a LOT of items. Time to deepen your shelves for everyday stuff too.

Reduce, reuse, recycle. Use it up. Wear it out. Make it do, or do without. Oh, and a little bit of maintenance goes a long way.

Stacks o stuff. You want them. You know you do.
