So this was my weekend…

Friday Night: Grilled chicken for dinner for me and a friend. After dinner we went walking until we started feeling it sprinkle. After I got home, I went to the back patio to put the cover on the grill, and this is where it gets interesting. I flipped on the light, and opened the door only to hear a noise. Looked down, saw what I thought might be a cat so I closed the patio door really quick because I didn’t want it running into the house. Squat down to get a better look through the patio door only to see a long tail and two hind feet flailing. There was an opossum stuck between the propane tank and one of the legs of my grill. Freak out and run out to catch my friend, who suggests I call a neighbor friend to help me free it/get rid of it. Good idea. I head back into the house to get my phone and check once again on the status of my uninvited guest only to see it had freed itself and was now long gone. Whew! I really do wish I could have gotten a picture or video because it was a funny sight.

Saturday: Finally managed to create a new flower bed in my back yard and plant some bulbs. I will need to eventually put a border around the garden or the lawn guys will mow them down, but I have until spring to get that done. But hey, it’s a start. Also got more work done on the bathroom (and once again forgot to take a picture before I started). The humidity has made it difficult to get the doors and drawers finished because the paint stay tacky longer. I’m hoping by tonight to be able to turn everything over and finish painting the other side. All I have left after that is to paint the walls and put shelf paper in. Wish me luck.

Sunday: I cannot believe I’m about to admit this, but last night when I got home, I got out of my car and went to put the trash dumpster on curb before going in the house. I proceed back to my car to open the passenger side door only to find that I had once again locked my keys in the car. I didn’t even remember locking the door when I got out of the car. Thankfully I still had a spare key hidden in the garage (sadly, I have locked myself out of the house going into the garage MANY times). I went upstairs and got my spare key to the car and proceeded back to the garage. Guess what I discovered…my car was unlocked. The power locks on my car are operated by the drivers side door lock. Earlier in the evening, I was getting stuff out of my car and instead of locking all the doors, I only locked the passenger side door. Next time I’ll check better.

And it was good chicken on Friday night! I'm still looking for a recipe for us on TH night. It will be wonderful whatever I find.
