Saturday - Beautiful weather. I went out
to a yard sale, saw various tempting things, but resisted the urge to
clutter my life any more. It was an older gentleman who was being evicted by
family...what a world.
Friday - Nice weather.
I finally added my phone to the do-not-call registry. I'm getting
multiple calls a day now from various random locations...
Since loans seem to be out of the question I've asked a realtor I know (from
scouting stuff) to come by and give me an estimate on this place. I am
reluctant to pull stuff out of savings, since it will be treated as income
along with proceeds from the Martinez sale. Rollovers from a house
sale are capital gains free, essentially.
Wednesday 27 September
Wednesday - Book #35 was A
Sea Of Skulls, by Vox Day. This is the sequel to #34 and
was pretty good. Moves right along. I don't think I've ever read
a fantasy from the point of view of a goblin before...
26 September 2017
Tuesday - Looking into loans for the "new
place". Unfortunately it's hard to get anything because of being
self employed. Looking into other options - HELOC and such. Bah.
Monday - Texted S to get the name of her
chimney sweep. I haven't had that done, and it's been a few
years. Someone I know had a nasty chimney fire a few years back...
I found a fixer-up in the west valley, out in Antelope Acres. It's a
decent price, though it needs a lot work - a roof, exterior paint, new
carpet. But I am at a low for liquid cash right at this moment...
Sunday - Nice enough weather. A bit
Did my shopping in the morning, didn't buy any cola or ice cream because I
thought I had some. Turns out I didn't.
I had tossed all the lumber from Saturday over the fence, so mid-morning
after shopping I went and stacked it.
This caused my back to start hurting. I never know for sure what is
going to trigger it, but repeated bending low and twisting is usually a bad
thing. Bah. I still need to fix the gate though.
Texted my acquaintance in Idaho, he says the smoke has lessened a bit,
though it's still hazy.
