Helicopter fly-bys all yesterday.  Happens a few times a year - slow speed, lower to the ground than normal.  It’s not police, or news.  Weird shit.

July 2:  90°+ and now storms are moving in.  This is the only patch of blue sky right now.  What does it look like to you?

June 24:  Beautiful night on the patio, before the rain later tonight, and tomorrow.  Might be purple, too.

Whole lotta weather happening right now.  Winds are crazy, and it’s insane out there.

It’s here!

It’s here!

I cannot wait!
What’s that?  Oh, just the shipping update on my memory foam mattress that I got FREE.  Of course, I can’t sleep on it until Sunday evening.  You have to open it and let it expand for 48 hours.  It comes shrink wrapped, rolled up like a big burrito.  I might do a time lapse video of it, for shits & giggles.

The best part of the year is the first time I dig in the dirt with my bare hands.

Menlo Oaks Residence by Ana Williamson Architect

With a few minor modifications, and a sexier bathroom, and some paint on the walls, this would be my dream home.  Doesn’t need to be so extravagant, just simple, modern, clean, open, and all green materials used.
This is almost 4K square feet.  I could do it in about 1200.

We may have gotten a bit of snow last night.

Then there’s this.

Then there’s this.

I like a sexy shower.  I like an open concept in a bathroom.  It’s one reason I have a clear shower curtain. I like organic and earthy elements.  I don’t like valances, or frilly this, or typical that.  Hell, I have wood clamps on the wall in my bathroom to hold towels.  I also have rocks and a sea grass mat covering the floor.  (I need to redo the mat, by the way.)

I’d love to have an outdoor shower for the summer time.  It’s one reason I favor a private backyard in a house.  If I wanna get out there, a bit more exposed than normal, I should be able to without the neighbors getting all lookie-loo on me.

Things That Happened Today

  • Found a washed & dried lottery scratch off in my coat pocket.  I brought it to the liquor store, and had it scanned.  Won $40.
  • Went to the Hallmark store, and a guy was sitting in his car, in the middle of the parking lot lane, asleep.  The girls in Hallmark went out to wake him up.
  • Went to Brueggers, saw they had a “free refill for all of 2014 coffee mug”.  Asked the price on it.  ”It’s $175,” they replied.  ”I’ll have a hot chocolate,” I retorted.
  • Saw a pillow at Target that said “Noel” on it, and thought of “Technol” aka No-L on Tumblr.
  • Brian went to use the bathroom at a diner we went to for lunch.  Came storming out 10 minutes later, having stepped in feces on the bathroom floor, and while standing on one foot, washed his other shoe off in the sink.

We’ve had a day of it.
