Five for Friday

Well, it’s that time of week once again where I do battle with my brain for the ultimate control of my destiny.  Let’s see …

1. My best friend just left after spending the past few days at my place.  We’ve been friends since the 1st grade.  It was a good visit.  I told him that I’ve been putting some thought into moving out of Minnesota when I retire since taxes are high here.  He suggested a couple places to move to in the Des Moines area.  There’s some food for thought there.  At least I’d be back to four distinct seasons once again.

2.  We had a nice rain here yesterday.  It wasn’t enough to refill my rain barrel but every little bit helps and especially after I read my water bill yesterday for this quarter.  Yikes!

3. I have a number of chores to get done this weekend.  It’s all coming together and all should be squared away come the end of next month.

4. The weather here has been beautiful lately.  Humid but beautiful none the less.  I love my initial morning walk with the nice cool breezes.  Some of the leaves on some elms are starting to turn yellow which I’m not sure if it’s a sign of a change in seasons or the lack of rain.  It is safe to say now that our days with 90*F temps are over for this year.

5. I hate coming back to work after having a few days off.  I’m so out of step with my regular work routine.  It’s hard to get motivated and organized.  Hindsight is 20/20 but I should have taken today as well.

There ya have it.  Feel free to comment and/or shout “Happy Friday!” on your way thru if’n you’d like.   🙂
