Friday night Dean & I had dinner at The Chimes. I love love love The Chimes but once LSU is back in session there's no going there without a really long wait. It's practically on campus. We really enjoyed it. When we got home my new lights had been delivered! I was excited, yet a little nervous. I was really hoping they were what I wanted this time. I knew they weren't going to be so willing to give me return shipping again. No need to worry, I love them!
Saturday, Dean & I were watching our Godchild Lane. We had big plans. It was a beautiful day & we would spend it in the pool. Only one problem. Lane wanted nothing to do with the pool. This is what he wanted to do.
Speaking of reading, this finally came!
I was very excited! I'd ordered the case & light from eBay & it came in Friday so I was just waiting on the Nook. If anyone's in the market for Nook accessories I highly recommend eBay. The light & case were $17.99 & free shipping. They have the cases in all colors but of course I went with pink. I've been playing with it & I've downloaded & started reading a book. So far it's great!
Our friends that live next door came over Saturday evening to eat. Dean did BBQ ribs & they were soooooo good!! I'm not a big rib eater but these were delicious!!
Back to those best laid plans....Sunday after Mass we made a quick trip to Lowe's to get a few things we needed to hang my new lights. Of course I make things difficult by buying lights that have a different base than what we had before. This meant caulking, sanding & painting before installation. No biggie though. After all, we've changed out practically all the lights in the house, we know what we're doing. Yes, well, we know what we're doing but that doesn't mean a whole lot. We finished all the caulking & painting & everything was in the process of drying when Dean left for our Homeowners Association meeting. I was planning to go but I had a headache & it was way too hot for me to go sit outside. Our subd. is having a big debate over batting cages in peoples yards. When I say "our subd.", I mean one lady is aggravated that her neighbor has one. 2 Hours later Dean came home muttering about how that was 2 hours of his life he wouldn't get back. Apparently, the only thing that was decided was that nothing was going to be decided. Good grief. Oh & homeowners dues are going up. Just what I wanted to hear.
So, Dean's home & it's time to hang lights! Well, the screws the light manufacturer provided are too long so the base doesn't sit flush against the wall. Dean has a ridiculous amount of screws & nails but of course none of what would actually work. Isn't that always the case?? It's 6:00 & neither of us are interested in making another trip to Lowe's. What did we do? Took the lamp out of the guest bedroom & used it in the bathroom & I went to Lowe's at lunch today & got what we needed. We think.... Hopefully, we will get everything hung this evening.
OH & I just remembered that with all the light commotion we forgot to order an ice maker. Something else to add to the to do list.
