Captain’s Log 5,558
I had no internet yesterday morning so there was no update here. Apparently, the entire district went down (whatever that means). I called to find out what was happening and they gave me a credit of $1.46 for my inconvenience. Really funny. All is well now. Internet is working better than it ever did.
I came home from work (and the car repair shop) yesterday to find this! YAY! The bushes and trees have been planted! It will soon be quite a forest out there! I have FIVE pygmy date palms out there! FIVE!
They are installing a weed barrier today and the drip irrigation will be attached and tested. ALMOST finished!
I have wanted a yard like this my entire life. The front yard is lush with green grass where I will sit in a nice chair and tickle my toes. The back yard will turn into a place even more harmonious with the birds and critters already out there. It is completely wonderful!
There was nothing wrong with my brakes yesterday. Imagine. The funny noise the wheels make for ME did not make the noise for the technician. They could have replaced everything and I would have never known, but they were honest. So, sometime next week when the car IS making the noise, they want me to bring it back for a test drive with a mechanic. So be it.
I am completely captivated with the new show on A&E. The Bates Motel is playing as a type of prequel to the Hitchcock story. It’s like Twin Peaks meets Northern Exposure meets Psycho. Really fun. The kid who plays Norman is fabulous!
Off to the salt mines.
