Saw this picture on Facebook today and thought it was so cool. My mom loves cardinals, so I'm going to print this out for her. I bet she's never seen one like this!
Speaking of my mom, I did go over there this morning. I picked up her mail and did her laundry, but we didn't go shopping because of the cold weather. That was totally fine with me. My sister called her while I was still there, so I talked to her for a bit too. It's weird to think of how long it's been since I've actually *talked* to her. I hate talking on the phone. I'm all about Facebook messaging, texts, and emails. Anyway, my sister is home from the hospital now and recovering nicely.
Also while I was at my mom's her landlord stopped by to see about putting some safety bar things in the bathtub for her. She does not live in a senior apartment so there are no special features to make things easier for older people. I don't think he's really obligated to provide such things so I was surprised when he showed up. She'd told me recently that she'd put a note along with her rent payment, asking about it. I suppose though, she's been living there five years while all the other tenants come and go after a handful of months, so maybe he figured it wasn't such a bad idea. He took some measurements and stuff while I was there, then said he was going to see what he could find and would be back later today. I was gone before he got back so I don't know if he managed to get anything yet.
I finished that dang jigsaw puzzle! I was determined to get it done today so I plopped myself down and had some good ol' true crime shows on TV while I worked. As soon I was done I wanted to tear it all up and start on a new one. LOL! But no, I let it sit so hubby could see it when he got home. I did pull my Christmas coloring book out again and worked a bit on that gold and white design I'd last been working on. I didn't do too much though because I was puttering around on some other small things that needed to get done.
After hubby was home and we'd eaten supper, we watched last night's episode of Shannara. Yep, I'm into that show now. There is still a bit of cheesy bad acting, and I wish they'd get rid of the too tight outfits on the main girls, but it's getting better. And it's truckloads better than the bit of that Shadowhunters show I managed to see last night. What a disappointment that one was!
Do you have your lottery tickets? Hubby is all excited and has about $20 worth for us. What the heck would you do with $1.5 BILLION?! Yeah, I know, after taxes you only get mere millions but -HA!- I'll still take that. Actually, I think winning that much would be kind of terrible. Can you imagine all the hassle of lawyers and financial advisors? Not to mention all the people that would be hounding you. I'd be happy to win just one million, or even $500,000. Something realistic, ya know?
Well, I guess I'm off to bed now. I'm feeling kinda weird, like my heart is racing and my blood pressure is sky high. I must be sensing that billion dollar prize coming to me, huh?
