Random Thoughts Thursday 107

  • Today is my snister’s birthday! I wish I could celebrate with her, in person! Happy Birthday, snis!

Gosh, I think this is the last picture (from Nick and Alyssa’s wedding in June) I have of the two of us! I should have taken one when I saw her on my birthday in July!

  • My magnets came! And now that they are here I thought of a few more I’d like to make. Ha.


  • We have a sensor installed on a tree midway through our driveway that alerts us when cars (and deer, ha) are coming or going down the driveway, by playing a song in the house (and by alerting Steven on his phone). Of course, this tends to go off whenever I am on a conference call! One time someone asked if that was our doorbell. Ha, no. We just have a knocker on our door – add that to the list of house “to do” items – install doorbell.


  • When we were leaving the house Tuesday night, Steven slowed down the car and pointed in to the woods – a calico cat was sitting on a log in our yard! We’ve never seen him before. I hope he comes back!


Can you find him?

  • We were leaving on Tuesday to GET GROCERIES!!! Which we hadn’t been able to do since mid July! We haven’t had time to shop or cook much since we started our second floor ceiling project on August 3, so we’ve been getting take out and eating very basic meals. And, as you can probably guess, I feel like crap from all this crappy eating. Here’s to hoping we can eat better and cook a bit more now!

    Just an FYI, calico cats are like 95% female. Thought you’d like to know for when you name her.

    Happy birthday sins! Never heard before about such sensor: interesting (I need one of them to alert when my in-law comes).

  4. Chaitali says:

    Yay for groceries! That’s a long time to be dealing with no groceries but the progress you’ve made on your house in that time is impressive.

    Toilet paper! Finally! 🙂

    Wait, so you didn’t get the swim selfie magnets??? I assume that’s going to be the next order? 🙂

  8. Karen says:

    What a cute pic with the snis 🙂
    I can’t spot the cat….still looking.

  9. Mica says:

    The magnets look great! Do you use the magnets to hold things on the fridge or just as the display items themselves?

    Can you program the song that the sensor triggers? That’s really cool!

      Just display them, for now! I need to make one of our pyramid visit!

      So far, I think it just plays that one song. It would be cool if it played the Imperial March or something 🙂
