I seem to have taken a long weekend.,  It was a good one.  My daughter was here till Monday, when we drove her bck to Brooklyn and we had a barbecue.  It’s been a long time since we did that, and it was fun.  She made the grilled veggies  (fennel, pablano peppers & mushrooms), and fruit plate (blackberries, pineapple & watermelon), and I made the turkey burgers (mixed witih chopped peppers, onions & garlic).  Who knew healthy could taste so good. 

We’ve been thinking more and more about that co-op/brothel on the water.  It needs soooo much work, but could be perfect if we invest enough money.  All we need to do is find the money to invest.  Easy, huh?  I really wish the apoartment I rent now would go condo.

Sorry I didn’t get to you this morning,  I was out from about 8am till now.  Looked at a couple of co-ops, and really liked them.  One had a strange bathroom setup, and a hole in the wall in front of the heater, but was in otherwise great shape.  The other looked like a brothel or strip joint.  Mirrors everywhere.  My daughter said she’d get us a pole for a housewarming gift.   It’s one story with a large attic.  Nice sized utility room.  Needs all new appliances.  Eat-in kitchen has one large mirrored wall.  Livingroom has a mirrored wall.  Master bedroom has two mirror-doored closets.  Foyer closet has mirrors too.  Maybe 40 years ago I would have liked it better.  I want to find out how much it would cost to “fix”.  The best part, there’s a nice sized deck in back, and it backs to a lake.  Beautiful view.  I’ll try to get pics uploaded to show you.

Anyway, have a great holiday weekend.  If I come across any great deals, you’ll be the first to know.

I can’t get into my computer,which may or may not be because of my mouse.  I’m on Hubby’s laptop, which I can barely see on, so will post what I have so far, warts and moles included.

 I am the best wife ever.  I got up at 5 this morning and made a ton (or 50+) peanut butter cookies for Hubby to bring to work with him today.  It’s his last day of work for the summer.  Graduation, and the buses run on limited access till the end of August.  He’s about 2 people away on the seniority list, from getting summer work.  Hate this time of year, despite being a summer person.  What am I going to do with him 24./7 for 3 months????  At least I didn’t have to pack lunch (which has apparently become my job).  They’re having their annual barbecue.  I’ll sit here and have a salad.

Found some co-ops I wanted to look at this weekend, but agent wasn’t available.  Maybe next.  Today a condo (same developmenrt) opened up in the Oakmont style, which doesn’t have a sun room, but does have a dining room.  One I really like.  Hope you can see the floorplans to both,.





If you wear an 8½ – 10 shoe, this boot is a bargain, especially if you also get TaDa’s SmartBargains.com $30 gift certificate for $15 today.

I have a love/hate relationship with this game.  I have about 4 levels left, and have been stuck on the same one for weeks.  Way better than most match 3’s.  Give this one a try.   I downloaded it last time it was offered by GAOTD, and definitely get much play time, and frustration, out of it.

KRRM, you liked this when you visited.
