Nancy and I spent the last week catching up
on some of our to-do list items.
We needed to blow up the Sea Eagle and
There were no instructions.
My first attempt worked,
but I will move the cart closer to the middle next time.
We figured out how to store the cart on the kayak.
The wheels fit nicely behind my seat and
We decided that we need a carry case
to protect the kayak from the nuts and pins.
This week we purchased some material
so Nancy could make a carry case for the cart.
It can be tied to the kayak.
If we ever tip over, we won’t lose the cart.
Hope we never get to test the ties ;o)))
We spent Nancy’s off day doing our Christmas shopping. We really do not buy much. We keep trying to get the commercialism out of Christmas and focus more on having quality family time. Neither one of us are shoppers, so getting our shopping done before the mad rush is a real plus for us. When necessary, we actually enjoy shopping together, especially for fun things!! Christmas gifts for the Grandchildren means fun things. Shopping at Toys R US is right up our ally. We are still kids at heart:o))
As if we didn’t get enough walking in yesterday shopping, we decided to go to Huntington Beach and walk the beach with friends in the afternoon. It was a spectacular 80 degrees and sunny. Great weather for the end of November! It was certainly a day to spend outdoors.
As we walked out the jetty,
there was a sunken sailboat ;o((
The mullets were jumping!!
Guess that is why the fishing is good
for the guys and the birds ;o))
What a wonderful afternoon with friends!!
OK, not everything that happened recently was FUN -- Our large screen TV video went blank on Sunday with the word “tube” flashing on the front. I made the brilliant deduction that the one and only tube in our 46” TV finally went out. After making a trip to Best Buy (we bought it there 7 years ago) I learned that the tubes typically last 5 years and Best Buy doesn’t stock the tubes in any store – you have to order from a separate company on line. I ordered the $165 tube and it’s supposed to ship in about ten days. Yuk! Nancy just shrugged her shoulders as she really could care less if we have a TV, but I like my TV. I’m just hoping that it will arrive in less than 10 days.
While we accomplished a lot this week,
there is still one BIG item on our to-do list...
SELL the HOUSE!!
I’m at a loss for what else we can do to accomplish that task ;o(
I guess the right buyers will come along,
but I’m getting antsy about that.
Oh well, it will happen when it’s supposed to happen.
At least that’s Nancy’s take on the subject.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and we are fortunate
to be able to spend it with some of our family.
We have so much to be thankful for and
hope each of you know how much we appreciate
your friendship and encouragement!!!
Hope you have a special day :o))
