It’s a nice Minnesota evening. Kinda cool and not a whole lotta clouds in the night sky. I stood out on my deck and drank in the night air. Some smoke from a wood fire was drifting on the air. Yeh, it’s that time of year once again. All that’s missing is the smell of burning leaves if they would let you do that again … which they won’t. That’s a Fall smell that I do miss.
You don’t want to know just how cool it’s supposed to be here tonight. I don’t wanna know it either but I think I’ll get up early in the morning to see how it all turns out.
Today was not a good day. I have an older refrigerator in the garage that decided to die on me. Not only did it decide to die, it also decided to trip the GFI outlet that it was plugged in to which happens to also be the outlet my freezer is plugged in to. Needless to say I awoke to issues.
The old fridge was dead and warm. Everything in the freezer part had thawed and/or melted. That meant a total loss there. My regular freezer on the other hand wasn’t so bad. I loss some stuff but not as much. It was fortunately garbage collection day today so all the lost stuff is now gone. Now it’s decision time on whether I want to replace the dead fridge with a new one or not. Regardless of the outcome, I have a dead fridge to dispose of.
Tomorrow will be a better day. Why? Because I told myself it will be. besides, I went to Famous Dave’s for some BBQ for supper. Some que always helps me.
I spent part of the evening hand watering my flowers and then pruning my roses. Doing this occupies my mind and forces me to focus on the task at hand. The problems of the day and past ghosts disappear if even for a tad. Some don’t get why I’m meticulous when I do my pruning of my flowers. I really don’t care if they don’t get it. I do.
