Came into work on Sunday and prepped for a meeting that I having this morning.
Had coffee with the Siebertâ€™s which is always a good time. I was also introduced to Ubuntu which is fast even on a P4. It runs Libre Office, Skype, has five gigs of backup space, and handles email and the web just fine (Chrome and Firefox). I could see The Lighthouse using it for both residential and office computers. Oh yeah, Jared told me it installed in ten minutes which is 47 hours and 50 minutes faster than a Vista or XP install is taking me.
The weekend that was: It was all football. Mark had a practice on Saturday and a game on Sunday (they lost). We did go and check out Larryâ€™s Skate Exchange on Saturday. We also managed to buy some Taber Corn on the last weekend they are open. Wendy had never had it before and she is not going back to regular corn. I tend to agree.
The weekend that was:Wendy worked for part of the weekend. When she wasnâ€™t at work, I was at work solving some things. We did find some time to celebrate Motherâ€™s Day with the Reimers, purchase Markâ€™s birthday gifts, and hang out with Lee. It was a nice weekend when all is said and done.
The only hitch from the weekend was that Wendy wanted a new recipe box because some she runs some cooking blog or something. We looked at Peppers and struck out but Dollarama had some. Of course when I came into work, a co-worker told me that she had just bought some down in Amish country as gifts that were just gorgeous. Weâ€™ll put in an order the next time Anita goes down there.
Where I am at the moment: Work.
On my to-do list this week: Some writing. Proposal writing and I plan to paint the front door which looks horrible right now.
On my to-do list this week: We plan to be at the cabin this weekend so I have to do some things for that like paint two Adirondack chairs, finish up a stair to the cabin, and pack some stuff. I am also going to price out what a pathway like this around the cabin would look like. I really like it.
Procrastinating about: I forgot to pick up my taxes at H&R Block. No penalties as I am getting a refund but now I have to go downtown and do it.
