And we're racing through another slow weekend. This is always the case.
Today is lawn waste pick-up day, and I have no waste. Tuesday or Wednesday, when I have off, I will wack my weeds. pick up a few small branches that have fallen, and that's about it.
So far I've harvested 5 cucumbers, several banana peppers, and there's a 3rd eggplant waiting to be plucked. The tomatoes and the cantaloupes failed. Maybe I should plant them in the front yard next year where they will get full sun. Because of the trees surrounding my house, in the backyard they only get about 5 or 6 hours.
I had some customers yesterday who are selling their house and wanted a refresh of carpet to make it more attractive to potential buyers. They have 195.67 square yards, or 160.60 square meters for all of my metric readers. That's a lot of rug. Even with the dirt cheap carpet their tally came to over $4300. And they balked at the price. He asked if they could skip the padding. Carpet without padding is like raw pasta... hard. Welcome to the real world. As I handed the printed final quote to them, he laid his phone on the desk and I could see he was already checking out our competitor. Fine with me.
And isn't it interesting how sounds from the past can sometimes be a source of creative inspiration? Like this.
