August 30, 2017 – Another Busy Weekend

I have been rather busy this weekend, and it’s just too early to go back to work tomorrow! I need another day off. Better yet, make it two!

I am sitting here writing this while enjoying one of my favorite wines – Two Vines Cabernet-Merlot, 2013. This is one delicious wine and I need to stock up now that I have room to stash some. Probably should wait until the weather gets cooler, though… unless I see a raging deal on it. I’ll just empty my fridge for wine storage and eat downstairs!

I have not had wine in a while and I would like to start getting back into it. It was fun and interesting trying all those different wines. However, it becomes rather easy to polish off a bottle in one night after trying a few good bottles. And, as I stated in an earlier posting, liquor is too damned expensive here in WA. A good wine (at least one I like) is fairly inexpensive.

I went out and about shopping yesterday and got my internet hooked up. It’s pretty fast internet, I must say, and I have never had internet this fast before. I do quite a few things on the internet so it is money I need to spend. It’s not too expensive and I am locked in on a low price.

I was looking for furniture and had no luck, so today I went in this store down the street to get something and was talking to the lady. She is the owner and is really nice. I had forgotten that in part of her gift shop she also sells furniture. I ended up buying a pub-style dining table and four stools from her, and then ended up also buying a used recliner on a screaming deal. That means a place to eat AND something to sit in other than a Coleman bungee lawn chair.

Today I went over to get some things from a co-worker who gave me more furniture – a twin bed (not perfect, but it’ll get me off of the floor/air bed for now until I can get a normal adult-sized bed), a nightstand, and a plain chair (for a soon-to-be-acquired desk). She also has a desk but I was looking at one in the store instead since it was a little bigger and left hers there. The owner of the shop was making me a great deal on two different ones (and I will possibly go back and get one), but I think I can use the other one my co-worker has along with it.

I really hated to get into my savings, but I had no household furnishings except for kitchen things (and bar stuff). I am going to quite enjoy some damn comfort, dammit. nI have sacrificed a a few years now and it’s MY time to enjoy.

It was a good weekend, and today was really good. I made progress on furnishings for the apartment (bought locally!), met some of my “neighbors”, and made a couple of new friends.

Yeah, that’s a pretty good day I’d say.
