Today I took John to the airport. He will be gone for a week. He is spending part of the time with his family and part with a friend of his who lives in Vegas. With owning 2 houses right now, vacation for both of us together is off the table, but John hasn’t seen his folks in about a year, so I told him to look for good flights and go visit them by himself.
After we sell our house if that ever happens… then I will take a mini vacation 😀 So, it’s going to be a busy week for me keeping an eye on John’s business and my own job. But, I am glad to do it so he can visit his family, even though I wish I could see them as well. I will miss him terribly, though.
Hopefully I will have enough things to keep me busy and out of trouble, but who knows? John might come back to 4 more antique trunks, 3 chairs to upholster and 6 stray cats.
I stopped for a consolation latte on the way back from the airport:
My new shower curtain arrived today. Since we are redoing the whole bath in a few years, I didn’t want to spend a ton on a shower curtain – and really, why are they so expensive?? Finding one I like and at a good price is like that old needle in the haystack thing. However, Amazon usually comes to the rescue, and it did in this case. Birds & Butterflies Heavy Duty Fabric Shower Curtain (my link)
$15 and free shipping for a fabric shower curtain. Marked down from $50 – score! I really love how pretty it is. If I can’t get my gardening fix outside, may as well have it in the bath.
I am going to have to figure out some way to use this in the future when we have a glass door shower and won’t need it. Maybe I could fashion a duvet cover out of it or something.
I have to say that I am getting tired of this cold weather. We barely got above freezing today and were below that yesterday. The snow is melting ever so slowly. At least the walks are now mostly clear and just wet in spots. I took a nice walk after dinner.
It’s forecast to be below normal for a while, too. I am putting out my tulip spring flag tomorrow regardless, dammit.
Now to keep myself busy – and get back to work to make up for the time I missed taking John to the airport.
