Why Suzi, Linda can bank online, which makes it even easier to shop at all those stores
Just about any store I could even hope to need would be within a 15 mile radius. For more everyday needs within a mile or two, ie groceries and such. No complaints. Restaurant too, everything from White Castle to, well, fancy stuff
We tend to avoid either end of that spectrum!
Suzi, seemed to me when we were in Bangor last summer that there is just about anything we would need right there...you could have the scenery like Laurie's within a few miles of that, I'm sure! What really appealed to me was that we could hop on the interstate to go a few exits at any time of day and, well move! Around here traffic is an issue much of the time.
Translated that means that 15 miles here is about a half hour, to an area where they is heaps of shopping. In Bangor it would be 15 minutes!
And in Bangor 65 wouldn't be called cool
Been very busy the last several days, with two entire days with Ryann, and spending time with her and the rest of her family on Saturday and babysitting again that evening...moving our friend on Sunday, in snow, and playing catch up on laundry and household chores. Today I'm cooking for guests this evening, if they don't cancel on me...hoping it stays rain long enough for them to come, eat and visit a bit before it is back to slippery stuff. And sewing! Woohoo! Worked on the chair cushion covers again last night for just a bit, enough that I felt virtuous for making some headway. I've got the measurements 'down' now, so now it is just doing it, no more sewing, putting it on the cushions, adjusting this or that etc. Or at least that's the theory! I'll be sure they fit well before I finish the seams which sounds more final. These will be washed fairly often and DD doesn't need fraying seams to get stuck in the zippers and all of that.
And our friend has moved out, after exactly 3 months. We never thought he would be here that long, as he usually is able to find a situation sooner. But, we never knew his income before. I'm amazed he found anything! He had tremendous faith that he would, I will confess to having had less faith. But he found a good place that he can afford, not is own, he is renting a room and has to share bathroom and kitchen facilities. But he is quite fine with that, he has lived in way worse situations. It is convenient for places he goes, way more so than here and anything he needs is very close by.
He is coming back this evening for his birthday, we invited two other couples he is close to.
It is raining now, but snowed about an inch and a half late yesterday. Turning to snow again tonight, and could be up to 9 inches more...Please NO! LOL Last night I was lying in bed listening to the dripping thinking what a glorious sound it is, the sound of rain. It will melt much of the snow, no where near all though, as the snow from the first storm more than a month ago is still piled all over frozen solid. But it will help, before of course snow later adds more
I've been on call for jury duty this week, but haven't had to go in yet. If they keep calling at the same rate tonight, I won't have to go tomorrow either...I sure hope not, as there will be lots of unshoveled snow around to 'plow' through to get to the bus. One does not drive to jury duty, parking is horrendous if at all. The courts themselves have no public parking. But they've called 1300 for yesterday and today, and my number is 1800 away now, so if at all I will probably go Friday. Unless of course they have a tremendous need for 1800 people tomorrow which just because of the snow tomorrow just might happen!!!! That is divided between the 3 courts here in Queens.
Well I have to bake a birthday cake and cook, and want to make serious headway on the cushion covers...my day will melt away if I don't get going.
