It's house cleaner day. I have a little pickup to do. Not much. Everything is in order pretty much, just dusty and/or dirty. While she works, I'll be doing errands. Goodwill, QFC, the library, possibly the Red Apple Market. The usual.
A month or so - maybe even more - I bought a new jigsaw puzzle for the building lobby. It was a crappy $1.00 500 piece puzzle. For a dollar, you get tiny pieces that don't stay together well so it wasn't fun to do but a little got done over the weeks. Then, this weekend, I saw that someone had finished it! I went back and checked the Nest cam and discovered some dude with a backpack and a dog had settled himself in last Tuesday morning and finished the whole thing while his dog napped beside him. 2 hours and he never even took his backpack off. Kudos, dude!
So I got a new one. This time I went with a Springbok. 500 piece but complicated picture. I emptied the bag on the table yesterday morning and then went down and did about 30 minutes of turning pieces over and finding side pieces yesterday evening. This morning I checked and someone had continued my work. The edges aren't finished yet but they are getting there. A very satisfying project. My plan is to give it about 30 minutes of my time every day. Just because.
I had this whole condo painted in 2005. There are dings here and there that have started to accumulate. I need to go around with my bright blue tape and mark all the spots and then dig out/go get all my touch up paint. There are 6 different paint colors on various walls around the house. I'm pretty sure I have some of each but I'm not sure about the viability of what I have. I think I'm going to get some jars from the dollar store and repackage it all after I do the touch ups. A nice little project with a good excuse to go dollar store shopping and get fried chicken
Popeye's and the Dollar Store share a corner. It's a bit of a trip from here which is probably good for both my pocket book and my spreading ass. Also it makes going a special event.
I think, before I do anything today, I'm going to get me another cup of coffee!
