Sunday stuff

October 23rd, 2011 at 10:41 pm

The day's accomplishments:

1. Lots of online surveys in the morning with a steaming cup of green tea.
2. Rearranged some furniture which always gives me a "wow" moment, as if I have a brand new room! All I did was haul an old barnboard cabinet (Sundance catalog, muchos dineros at a time when I had money) and put it downstairs against a window in a little back hallway. The white storage bench I had in that location came up to my office.

Why did I do this, battling the stairs heroically as I went? Because I thought my scaredy cat would appreciate being able to jump on the lower bench and look out the office window. He is too insecure to jump on any household furniture except my bed, the built-in benches in the sun room, and the couch.
3. Swept a ton of pine needles covering my upper driveway and deposited them in the blueberry bed. Blueberry bushes love acidity.
4. Raked more pine needles off an area of my front lawn where they always collect under a big row of mammoth white pines.
5. I actually did some paying work for the guy I found on Craig's List who has had me edit some of his emails. I earned about $10 for a half hour of pretty easy work.
6. Read the Sunday paper (and saw my mom's photo in it, related to an art exhibit) Smile
7. Organized myself for Monday chores which include groceries, a bank deposit, a dump run and Walgreen's. Handyman Billy is coming over in the afternoon to assess what he can do with the dryer vent hose/Houdini hole.
8. Vaccumed the upstairs.
9. Filled the bird feeder.
10. Picked out a slow cooker recipe (pork) which I hope to do tomorrow if I get back early enough from grocery shopping.

By the way, I'm amazed at how big name Hollywood stars...I'm talking dustin hoffman and george clooney....can still put out some really lousy movies. In the last 2 days I watched george in Men Who Stare at Goats and Dustin in a love story with Emma Thompson, and they were both were mediocre. Not sure what it was, maybe it was just the story line.

    wow - that's great list of accomplishments! what on-line surveys do you do?

    I saw that one with Dustin Hoffman on a plane--it was moderately cute, but mostly a waste of a couple hours for me. let us know how the pork recipe went. I'm always looking for a new slow-cooker recipe.

    I think the Dustin Hoffman movie was called something like, Last Chance Charlie?

    Starfishy, I've been doing Pinecone and Toluna for a few years now, but recently expanded to also start doing Global Test Market, Opinion Outpost, My View and I-Say because I had reached the $600 year-to-date limit at Toluna and I didn't want to have to pay taxes on it. So I'm continuing to do the Toluna surveys but not redeeming my points for any more cash until Jan. 1, 2012.
