Cleaning up some messes. . .

Standard

20120620-102253.jpg

This was waiting for me after work yesterday and pretty much sums things up this season.

It’s a great time of year for a friendly reminder to keep a look out for pests in your yard and home, maybe get a power wash rinse scheduled for your home.  Give the baseboards a wipe. . .and think smarter not harder.

Yesterday, I posted a link to my Pinterest page.  It’s chock full of great cleaning and organizing pointers and a few punch, tea and adult beverage recipes so you have something refreshing to recover with after some hard work.  Check it out.

PS-Some of my clean up includes digital and on the interwebs.  I’m finally below 500 unread junk emails floating in the inbox and reorganizing domains.  theglasshouseblog.com is gone, got annoying to explain it to folks. . .so enjoy the new and I SWEAR this time, more interesting and frequently updated, redwagonrealtor.com

Liquid sunshine filled run

Standard

Run and rain on 5/15

Started my run today knowing storms were blowing in. . .tons of sun the first half, wind the whole time. . .and mid way, snapped this as I debated cutting the route short but figured a spring run in the rain would rock.  It did.  I arrived home with a complete training day, soaked to the bone and smiling from ear to ear.  Hope your Sunday rocked as well!

Auld Lang Syne, Haggis. . .and what not.

Standard

My noggin can be a scary place, like a plate spinner at the circus, there’s generally five to nine thoughts rolling around at the same time, some faster than others.  It’s almost New Years. . .which made me think of Auld Lang Syne, by good old Robbie Burns and years ago a night I randomly stumbled across The Country Squire in Warsaw (NC).  Who can’t enoy a joint with huge slabs of meat on the menu and a tree growing through the roof in the front hall?  This particular evening, they were hosting a wake, I was invited by the hostess to join (ahem?!). . .then I heard the bagpipes, saw the parading of the haggis and was kinda bummed I said no thank you.  This year, Robbie Burns night is January 22. . .and it’s worth checking out.  Can’t make it that night?  It’s still a nifty place to try out, a litte off the beaten path and surrounded by fantastic antebellum h0mes and farms so try to go while it’s still light out your first time. . .besides, going any other night means haggis won’t be on your menu.
