Another banter…

This is my banter for Friday August 9th.

Today has been a lazy kind of day. With rain in the morning and rain in the early after noon. It’s been an inside day.. Boring… I had ventured outside in the morning rain to let the pups out to do their thing. The rain was like a soft shower, where the water does not peel off you skin… The kind of showers that you just want to stand in for an hour. I know you would have pruned feet, if you stood in the shower for that long.. But, you know what I mean.. I returned to let the pups back in the house, and the rain had stopped. I could not believe how sticky, and muggy it felt after just a few minutes before. Steamy is a better way to describe the outside air. I watched from the inside of the house as I drank my one and only cup of green mint tea. The sun would be blasting  heat, then it got dark. This repeated about six or seven times. It was really weird… I just relaxed and got myself motivated for some house cleaning.. I sat playing a game I like and the next thing I knew it was eleven-thirty…. I had not even had my bowl of cereal yet… I kind of get really caught up in the game, and I loose track of time.. Once the cereal was done, I just had to get dressed… My mind was telling me, ‘don’t get dressed, no ones coming over.’ My mind made sense, but going outside in my back yard in a night shirt seemed a bit too risky to me. Up the stairs I went to dawn my clothing. It was now twelve-thirty and I needed to vacuum as soon as possible.. The puppy hair was driving me crazy..

The kitchen sink was littered with dishes, so I started to clean them up, and clean the over dated leftovers out of the refrigerator. I like to catch all the stuff before it turn green in color. If you have ever open one of that kind of container, you will know what I mean… When I open one a container like that, I usual say to myself.. ‘Oh, penicillin.’ That is before the smell can get to me.. I opened a container of milk once that was sour. Of course the only way to see if it is sour is to smell or taste it…. This brings back memories of when I was a child, and we stayed at my aunts place over night. In the morning the milk in our glasses was sour. We had to drink that milk. That was the worst thing you could do.. So every time I would rather smell the milk than taste it. ‘Totally gross.’ With dishes and kitchen taken care of it was time to vacuum.. I dusted the rugs with a deodorizing powder from gain. If you are even going to us this… ‘Don’t.’  My rug now is stained with white powder that the vacuum won’t pick up.. Thanks to that crap. I now have to shampoo the carpets.. Yahoo! Just what I did not want to do.. I have a very good vacuum, a Dyson… I chased the dog hair around the floor as my Dyson sucked up the hair. Vacuuming done… I look out the door and it is raining so darn hard. So hard that you can actually see the rain falling in a straight down line… Now, that’s raining, or should I say pouring…

Once I had finished all the clean up I needed to do, it was time for a sit down and a drink of cold water.. It was drawing closer to the time to figure out what to have for supper… Potatoes. ‘What else could I come up with?’ ‘Hummm.’ Pork chops. There ya go, and through in a vegetable, some bread and butter, and there you have supper. Now that I knew what I was going to make for supper, and I had a couple hours till then. ‘Guess what I did?’ I played my game till dinner making time finally came around. And that was my boring day…. 🙂 🙂

I hope you all Have a great Friday, and weekend.. I will see you come Monday with either some banter or maybe a new story… Till then.. Be safe and enjoy your weekend… 🙂 🙂

Daisy had to clean her room. The result of the cleaning job she did was quite funny. Mom had opened the closet door, which was packed with everything that could fit in the closet. Mom ended up standing in front of an exploded closet.
