The nice thing about banking overtime at work is that now and then you get paid to stay home and have a nice day...and that's what I'm cheerfully doing today.
After a slight sleep in, I talked with Mike, who along with Tucker is in....Peculiar, Missouri. That's a weird (i.e. peculiar) name for a town! They're doing their mandatory reset; every eight days, or seventy hours of driving, whichever comes first, they have to take 36 hours off. They picked up a load in Texarkana, and are delivering to Kamloops probably on Tuesday.
But I digress...after some mandatory houseworky chores, I took a quick trip to the transfer station, and then picked up a couriered envelope in town at the local U-Brew. (Only in a small town will you find a U-Brew/Courier Depot/Oxygen Depot all in the same shop!...and by the way, CS, I saw a batch of your vino on the shelf there, it's looking a little cloudy!) After that, I treated myself to a vanilla latte at the Chartreuse Moose (100 Mile's answer to Starbucks), and got it free...as in buy 10 get one free!
This afternoon has been devoted to making Rupert's house clean and tidy with a luxurious deep bed of shavings, scrubbing out the water tub, making a "wicked good" (as they say in the LLBean catalog) batch of ratatouille, and finishing the book I've had my nose in off and on all week. Not a very eventful day, but very pleasant.
