:blink blink: Hello there. You're still coming around, eh? Cool. I should rename this the 'Moving Friends Spectacle', but this will pass and I will someday be back to writing. Not today, though.
We finished staining the decks - two coats in an Autumn Brown that kind of looks like cedar once it dries. Looks lavender in the bucket and when it first goes on. My friend hated it when we first put it on, but it's growing on her. Or at least the idea that no matter what color it is or whether it clashes with her tastes, it's done and she won't be living with it for too much longer is growing on her.
We've been going to bed at 7:30pm a lot this past week. Last night we went to bed then and I woke up at 12:30am. Hubs got up at 2. Then he went back to bed at around 4 and I went to bed at around five. I was up again just before 7.
Turned on the TV at 3. Nothing was on, so I selected Sumo wrestling on the Japan channel. Live from Tokyo. But in English, thank god. Two massive mountains of flesh in tiny attire, grappling and trying to push each other out of a circle of sand lined with rocks (it looked like rocks). It was like watching the bizarre love children of hippos and grizzlies fight. Massive muscles underneath mounds of quivering flesh. Both gross and entrancing. One guy's thong thing was way too loose. Another guy's was way too tight. One guy was super hairy, which I thought was against the whole Sumo thing but I guess not. One guy reminded me of Jaba the Hut. For the most part, though, they were well-shaped but incredibly fat dudes. In one bout, one was 177kg (390lbs) and his opponent was only 130kg (286lbs) and I was sure the larger guy would throw the smaller one around. Nope. Skinny (for varying definitions of skinny) dude won. All in all, it was interesting. Then Hubs went to bed and I watched the end of The King and I. Sad.
One of my tomato plants has two new tiny tomatoes. Yay. Same plant that gave me the other tomato. Most of the garden is still alive, but I can tell time is growing short. In news for next year's garden, I got a bunch of big plastic planters from my friend, so my plants will have larger growing spaces.
Today or tomorrow - I have both days off - I have to go get the car serviced and buy two new tires. If Walmart has the tires I want in stock and can put them on today - and if the oil change place is open on Sundays - I'll go there. If not, I'll get tires closer to home and then drive down for an oil change and groceries tomorrow. Or I might just veg out today and get it all done tomorrow anyway.
I'm pretty worn out, so two days off will be nice. Back at it on Tuesday. Luckily, it's only packing and cleaning from this point. No more painting. No more ladders. Just some lifting, which should be easy since I am strong like bull - moreso now than when I started this adventure. I'm also sporting one hell of a tan with tank top and shorts lines. Actually, it start out as one hell of a sunburn, but aloe took care of that and now it's brown. (And no, I don't worry about skin cancer, so don't go there. Let me enjoy my sexy tan.)
I've also lost 3.5 pounds since 8/10. Loads of activity during and after which I am not inclined to eat a lot. Weight: 181.2
I finally actually know someone directly who has the 'rona. He said he felt pretty gross there for a couple weeks, but he sounded about done with it. I hope it's true. Hubs will call him today and see if that's the case.
Well, a creepy, orange-red sun is rising here. We're getting the wildfire smoke again. Whoopee. And I should probably toddle off. Have a great day wherever you are. And tell me about your week, if you're so inclined. :hugs:
