Wacky Weed Wacker

Weeds, so many weeds!!       Our landlord told us he was only responsible for the lawn.       
The flower beds are our responsibility.        So, I’ve been trying.   

(Plant Play # 8 below, Plotted Plants # 11 below, Delightful Dirt Digging #13 below)

But apparently, this last guy didn’t know the rules.        He got out the weed wacker, and just went wacky, wacking up the weeds in the flower beds!

This flower bed had an actual flowering plant in it- before he arrived!

Where’s my hibiscus??   He killed it!!

He decimated my hibiscus!!        Back in July, here it was in full blossom: 

slob, humor, my hibiscus

 So pretty!

(I hope you appreciate this pic!!     It took me 30 minutes of searching thru pix on my computer to find it!!       I know, I know, just be glad the computer works!!     I am!)

Good thing I had photographed when I did!!         Proof positive for posterity!

But at least now, I don’t have to worry about weeding anymore!         Until the next heavy rain….      next Tuesday, if not before!       Well, it turned out to be Irma, on Sunday.       I told you it might be before!!

I promise, all the Irma prep, and aftermath are on their way.       Ya know, my cranky new phone.       Not complaining!       Everything else works so much better on it!       Can’t have perfection, now can we???

And John, and Barb: I haven’t forgotten the challenge either.      It’s percolating!

Purse Purging

(More info about Irma stuff, when I can get the pesky pix to load!!)

That time of year again; ye ole annual purging o’ the purse.        Since I have a fairly small one now, it could probably be bumped up to biannually, at least!

slob, humor, orange purse

*Gasp!!* An orange purse??? PurpleSlob, are you sick??

I know, I know!     No one I know can believe I bought an orange one!!

Here’s the pix of this go round.          Start.

slob, humor, purse interior
Da dark depths of da dungeon. I mean purse.

1 lonely earring.    That I’ve only worn once, cuz I hate intensely dislike the colors.   (Well, I brought them to coordinate with a shirt, that then I got rid of too, cuz I don’t like those colors.    DUH!)

slob, humor, 1 earring
1 lonely earring. 1 piece clear trash

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How many purple pens do I need in my purse??  

slob, humor, 3 purse pens

1 lil, 2 lil, 3 lil pens!

Hint: probably not this many.         And I definitely don’t need the orange one!       No matter what color my purse is!

Receipts, mostly trash.     Except the one for rent, and the one with survey code for free Wendy’s sandwich!

slob, humor, receipts
Mostly useless receipts.

Some more VIT= very important trash.

DD1’s credit card, to get gas, in Vanronica.     Yeah, that was pretty much purged immediately, back into her hot little hand!         (DD’s, not Vanronicas’!)        But honey, it was orange, and I just couldn’t see it against the lining of my purse!

slob, humor, DD1's debit

DD1’s debit.

2 things hand sanitizer.      Since one is Norwex, guess which one is being purged??

slob, humor, 2 kinds han san

Who’s hands are the dirtiest??

I had previously purged the useless, long, skinny strap:

slob, humor, long skinny strap gone

Useless, long, skinny strap: gone!

Finally, we’re down to the lining.    

slob, humor, dirty purse lining
Yucky mess! (So what else is new??)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cleaning the lining will have to wait for another day.       I’m bushed!     Lol.

Imminent Irma

I’m writing this Sat. On my phone.

Irma is on her way to try to huff and puff and blow my house down.

Go away, big bad wolf!

As soon as I can, I will log back in and let ya know how it goes.

Hopefully, she will fall for the chimney trick, like the story wolf did!!

Dolly, I’ll be texting ya for a hurricane recipe!

Love y’all!

Having a hurricane party here. Brownies and peach Fanta, yeah!!

slob, humor, hurrican

Any hurricane, ever.

Update: All good!    We never lost power, but lots of others did.  Haven’t heard of any lost lives yet, except that teenage surfer, who went out surfing.   😦                                          We have a small living room leak, in a place they had previously patched.  (I think that part is funny!!)        Lots of big limbs down in backyard.

God did a miracle, turning Irma, and weakening it!!          Thank you, God!!

Did Dishes

This is what was happening on Aug. 21, 2014.

I can still hardly believe it myself!

 

slob, humor, wow emoji

Wow!!  And bewildered!

(How is this a Wow emoji?????)

slob, humor, poop is NOT wow

Purple poop is NOT wow!   It’s disgusting!    And probably indicates a severe gastrointestinal problem!

smh

Fanatic Fan

XH cleaned my ceiling fan with an Enviro.        (The ugly green one.   But it works.           I can’t always have a pretty purple cloth for everything.       Cleaning is a dirty job, but some color has to do it.)

slob, humor, XH cleaning fan

XH doing a great job!!

Notice how he’s the one up on the ladder, not me?!          I can’t even stand up on my own 2 feet, NOT gonna attempt being up on a ladder!        Dirt is not worth a hip!!

slob, humor, dust

Here’s a sampling of the dust. You’re welcome.

Doesn’t work the same, as a dust mitt!!          There’s a reason Norwex makes different cloths for different jobs!

DD1 had previously used a dust mitt, (not even standing on a ladder.)

And the Enviro does pick up the dust, but it pushed some off the end of the blade too.     The dust mitt didn’t!    

But DD1’s purpose had been to do a quick trial of the dust mitt.        XH was up there to really clean!!         (Yes, at my request.     What??       You think he just roams the neighborhood, asking people what he can clean for them??       Don’t they wish!)

(I took more pix, but am still having trouble getting them off this phone.      Urgh!             Hopefully I Sweet Friend can figure it out soon!       If he can’t, no body can!!)

Now, all I have to do is get the Envirowand out, and dust the light globes!          And maybe I’ll get it done before we move!       Lol          After all, our lease is up in May 2018, and y’all know how I am so bad with deadlines!!
