Whatnot – 08/24/22

Fisherman's Village - Marina Del ReyThis Saturday we have a scheduled power outage that will last all day long. It’s too warm to be in the house without AC so after the celebration of life we will be attending that morning for a dear friend who passed away in April, we will grab the pup and head to Fisherman’s Village in Marina Del Rey. It’s been a really long time since I’ve visited. Ten plus years, maybe more. It will be a nice break from the routine. 

Work is going okay but we have an ant problem in the office. My space isn’t that bad but they can’t spray because of sensitivities and traps are not doing it. Every once in awhile one crawls up my leg. Ewwwww.

Last Sunday student ministry had a paint war. It’s exactly what it sounds like. Students running at each other, and ME with handfuls of paint powder. I was covered and it is now three days later and my neck is still green. All the other colors came off easily but the green is holding. I look like She Hulk. It was so much fun though.

In case you haven’t noticed, I pulled the trigger on going ad free so no more disgusting ads to wade through when you visit me here! For $2 a month I should have done it sooner.

The RIP Challenge is coming. It’s going to be on Twitter and Instagram only. I am no way near getting my list together. I TANKED with my summer list. Chunkster reading got in my way. But, it’s one of my fave events so I will spend some time this weekend coming up with something.

I am going to end this here. As you can tell my brain is zipping around into too many directions. I hope you have a fabulous Wednesday. Friday will be here soon.

Still reading Irving’s The Last Chairlift. My review of Verity posted yesterday. Stop by to check it out.

  1. That looks like a beautiful place to visit. I hope the ant problem gets resolved soon! I haven’t thought about RIP, but I think I’m still in summer mode!

  2. I don’t think we ever had a planned power outage when we lived in San Diego. I don’t blame you for wanting to get out of the house and go someplace cooler! Do you have a generator for longer outages? We bought a small power supply from Rock Solar that we use to keep devices charged if our power goes out. We also have two generators for the refrigerators & freezers.

    We had ants in our rv once and found that Terro Liquid Ant Baits work the best. We actually used them in our kitchen in Nebraska, too.

    I need to put together a list for the RIP challenge. Thanks for the reminder. I didn’t do very well with the Paris in July challenge, but I’m very happy (so far) with my summer reading results.

    Hope your commute home isn’t as bad as it was last night!
