Done! (I think)

December 10th, 2011 at 06:20 pm

I had just a few final listings to update for this contract job. Well, 29 to be exact, so I worked 9 hours between yesterday and today.

I think that about wraps up this job. Looks like I wrote up about 300 listings in the directory (out of 1,850 total) and grossed about $1300. But I'll have to wait to hear back from them on Monday. If so, then I have to return their Mac to them.

Now I've cleared my plate for a relaxing (if I want it to be) Sunday.

I need to get groceries at some point. Maybe try out that Sweet Potato/Black Bean chili. Or the parsnip pea soup. Call me crazy, but maybe I'll have a go at some more downed tree branches with my bow saw.

Went to a pottery show today at the library. I saw a lot of stuff I liked, but the prices seemed a bit high to me. (Well, everything seems high when you don't have money.) In the back of my mind, I was thinking they'd have seconds (imperfect pieces) at reduced prices, but since this was their big Xmas show, I guess they wanted to jack up the prices. I didn't buy anything, of course.

After I returned my DVDs, I sat in one of the lovely old reading rooms with old, Victorian furniture, a fireplace and various items of local historical interest to read the local newspaper, whose subscription I cancelled a while ago. It's sooo relaxing when I do this. I love my local library. For some reason, it reminds me of my college. I guess becus everything is old and genteel.

I finally got around to putting out a few Xmas decorations which instantly brought back so many memories. I think of a lot of people who aren't around anymore. I have a lot of vintage tree ornaments that I like to put in bowls in lieu of a full-sized tree, homemade ornaments that my mother made, an ornament from a penpal in Russia I used to have and so much more. Maybe I'll get up in the attic tomorrow to get the rest of it, plus my table-top trees. I'm a little reluctant to go full hog becus it's just me living here and it's a pain to put it all away again.

    Glad you finished and have a little time to kick back! Sweet potato & black bean stew sounds worth a try (especially since the ingredients are in the cupboards).

    Your library sounds heavenly...
