Friday doings

June 14th, 2013 at 06:05 pm

I got my “cargo liner” for the trunk of my new car today. I’m pretty happy with it. Only if you inspect it closely would you see that it doesn’t exactly fit the space; along the sides, where there’s a curve, there’s a bit of an overlap, a good half inch on at least one side. However, you can hardly notice it.

To think that the dealer wanted $300 for this.

I’m making good progress on the credit card rewards. For the Chase Sapphire Preferred card, I’ve already charged $1927 in this the first month, so hitting the required $3,000 to earn the $400 back in cash rebate should not be a problem. I also started in on a new Bank Americard Travel credit card, and have charged just $47 on that toward the target $500 in 3 months (to earn $100 back). I already finished with the Blue Cash Everyday card from Amex, and am waiting for my points to show up online (redeemable for $100 back).
Just finished interviewing a builder over the phone; now I can either write his bio now or do it tonight.

My British neighbor/toy designer stopped by for a chat on my front stoop. Since being laid off, he gets lonely staying in the house all day while his wife is at work. The house has been on the market for only a few weeks and they’ve dropped the price by $50K becus they don’t feel they’ve gotten enough interest, and they need to be out of there by December. The house was priced in the $900K range to start.

The Stairway to Heaven looks especially lovely with all the flower petals from the rhododendrons fallen on the driveway.

I’m debating if I should go out now and run my errands or write the bio. Hmmm.

    It really does look like a stairway to heaven with all those petals!

    I've been looking at buying something similar for the Prius. The seats of the car are dark gray but the trunk space is beige. Why they did that, I will never understand but I want to protect it looking nice as long as possible.
