Saturday morning was nice and cool so I took out my new pruning shears and cut as many branches as I could from the trees and shrubs. Not so much because I wanted to but because I was looking for Katie who as of this evening has been missing for three days. I will cover that topic in my other blog.
Later that evening my arms were hurting so much I took two aspirins and turned on the 10:00 o'clock news but fell asleep shortly afterward. I woke up at 1:30 a.m., 2:30 a.m., and 3:30 a.m. but was able to go back to sleep. The only reason I knew what time it was, was due to the fact that I could see the time on the cable box.
The next time I woke up I had no idea what time it was because the house was dark except for my solar lights that we use as night lights on the hall and the bathroom. I fell asleep on the living room recliner and since it is electric I had a hell of a time getting out of it...note to self...change the back-up batteries!
Headed to my bedroom to find my wristwatch but when I was not able to do so I remembered the cellphone that I never use. It said it was 6:10 a.m. so I opened the front door and sure enough all the street lights including ours were out.
I was irate, so why did the power go out this morning? No one in their right mind would have had their A/C on if anything they would have had their windows open much like we did. It is Sunday so people were not at work. I could not go back to sleep, with no power I could not go online so I sat in the dark until the electricity came back on at 7:19 a.m. I still have no idea what to attribute this to as our lowly newspaper did not address this.
Went to Stripes to buy some tacos for breakfast...they were good! I then headed to Harbor Freight to use my 30 percent off coupon that expired today. While I still have plastic disposable gloves I figured with said coupon it would be a bargain. However, I was told that it had to be an item under $10.00 which it was according to the shelf price but not the price at the register, so I walked out without buying anything.
Walmart is next door and with only a few cars in the parking lot decided to make a stop. Saw this nice looking muscle car with Oklahoma license plates.
Made a beeline for the produce aisle where I bought some spinach, tomatoes, and avocados. Once again went to check out the clearance aisle and was surprised to find ladies swimsuits selling for $1.00.
In many of the blogs, I read bloggers have said that they have been unable to find small chest freezers. They had these on sale today.
