So i have been busy, and i dont think i am going to give you a recap of everything since i last posted. Some basics:
James came down to look for a place to live. I think he and i are going to be roommates. I like where i live, but i think it will be nice to have a roommate or two, because it gets awfully lonely over here, way away from everyone i work with and most of the people i know. it was nice to have company and we stayed totally busy the entire time.
Friday night i went dinner with a friend, and hung out on the beach and shared a bottle of wine. It was a pretty great evening, what with good food, friendship, and the beach. It makes me feel really lucky to live here. That was the first time i have really ever hung out on the beach, and my company made it even nicer.
Saturday, i went to work in biloxi at the red house. I helped level some brackets that were going on the footings for the new covered area. I am not sure what they are calling it, whether it is a porch or an awning or a shaded area, but that is what i did. I did not stay too long, because my ride had to go to miss ethel's house. I going there tomorrow to help float the floor. I have never done that before, so this will be a good learning experience.
Also on saturday, i had to work at sweets. It was the chicken shit contest. I was really surprised by how long it took for the chicken to shit three times, but it took about 5 hours. It was a funny event though.
After the chicken finally pooped, and i got off work, i went to the shed, and heard a band and spent time with friends from work. I nice close to a busy day. I went home and passed out, i was exhausted.
Today... well, today was a busy day as well. I forgot to turn off my alarm clock, and i ended up getting up at 5:45 am. But it was alright, i got up, made coffee, and headed to the grocery store. when i got home, i started the laundry, and took deloris on a run, then rode my bike to the gym. When i got home i made some oatmeal molasses bread. It turned out well, although i thought i had messed it up. I grilled a steak for lunch today and the next few days. Then i took a nap and went back to sweets. It was a pretty quiet night up there, except of course for the Nascar Race. (james: i am sorry about jeff gorden!)
Now i am sitting at home and typing this blog, and watching my dog try to catch flies. She is doing a pretty good job. I think she just got her second one. I am also listening to bonnie prince billy. Alight, time for me to tuck my self into my bed so that i can work at full strength.
