Thought I would toss a picture up on here of one of the beautiful bushes/ plants in our back yard today. We really have quite a few beautiful lush plants and trees growing around in our yard and they are kind of taking over things right now since it is spring I guess they are getting all revved up! And our landlord has an irrigation system that he has going so that is part of it I am sure!
So we had an adventure already this morning! I had gotten a package that needed a signature when we were in the Burdekin and so I had to go pick it up at the post office. I called yesterday as the card they left said the hours were only during the week from 2-5 and that was not going to work to get in there. After a couple calls they finally put me through to this guy who said someone would be there in the morning so we headed out looking for it. We missed it the first time but I finally spotted the red Post sign and here it is a combination mini mart/post office/take away/gas station/bait and tackle store. No wonder I missed it. Of course there was no one in the post office part so I went in the store and asked the young guy about it and he said he would go find the guy. New guy came out, opened the door and found my package and I signed for it so all was good. Also found out that it is a pretty laid back post—-he said to just ring them if we had another package there and we could pick it up early in the morning or late at night as long as we made arrangements ahead of time. I had him write his phone number down on the tide chart (so now I know when all the tides are too!) and we were on our way!
The other nice thing was that they had vendors in the parking lot with fruits and veg and I got a gob of stuff for only $15 and I am sure it is much better than what I get in the stores so I was happy to find that they do that on Saturday mornings. I would rather buy from the farmers anyway.
So instead of running around like ninnies today we are going to stay home, grill some chicken and enjoy the weather. The nice thing about going to the other house in the middle of the week is that I can do the grocery shopping then and not tie up the weekend other than maybe getting some of the cold stuff. And Chris likes not having to go grocery shopping!!! He didn’t complain but I know that it is not his favorite thing to stand around while I decide what to get!!!
Hope all is well in the US. I did watch the v-p debates yesterday and really got more confused about things. Waiting for our absentee ballots to arrive from South Dakota so hopefully those will come in time. Sounds like the financial picture is trying to get sorted out but it won’t for a long time I imagine. We just keep praying!
