Some very quick randomness:
--I sold my pool over the summer, but I kept the cover for it because the guy didn't want it. I just used it to cover my best firewood and my expensive double Adirondack seat, and my entire shed porch. You can never have too many things, like plastic or pool covers, that can cover other things.
--Just saw a gorgeous, fiery-red sunset. But, baby, it's cold outside.
--I love firepits and fireplaces, but they dry up my sinuses to the point that my face is inflamed, or I get nosebleeds, or both. You just can't win.
--Because I don't want to run the heat all winter and pay a ton for it, too.
--And it's going to be a very cold winter, much more so than usual. I hope I'm wrong.
--It took me about four hours to clean out and organize my shed the other day. And the entire second shelf of the large unit just inside has a ton of little black pellets on it, if you know what I mean.
--I took my North and my Route 95 signs down from the chimney yesterday, and hung it up in the garage. I'm thinking that I don't want the metal freezing to the chimney bricks, and maybe ruining some of the brick. Am I wrong for thinking this?
--This time of year makes me feel very content and homey, yet sometimes very blah and heavy as well. Gotta keep busy...
--I don't write as much or as often as I should. Do I have reasons, or excuses?
--The only shows I watch right now are The Universe; American Pickers; The Walking Dead; and American Horror Story. I'm so busy, I've even missed a few Patriot games recently.
--What happened in the Philippines this weekend is terrible, and it's only going to get worse, as people get very sick from stomach and intestinal illnesses due to the bad water.
--And the storms that hit it will get more and more massive in the future, as well.
--80% of everything in the storm's track was flattened, and so many people have died that they're just laying in the streets. And I thought I was having a bad day.
--And they just had a strong earthquake last week that also killed many.
--The health care website has been a huge pothole in Obama's otherwise stellar and productive years.
--Nobody from any other party has managed to take advantage of this, and Hilary still looks like the sure bet in the next election.
--I voted for her before; I'd vote for her again.
