Baker's Dozen 0621 

From "Baker's Dozen Monday" meme.

As the Baker's Dozen Monday meme instructions read: Realizing that my local bagel store has Baker's Dozen specials on Mondays led to this.    It has become a weekly thing that others want to participate in too.    The idea is to come up with twelve thoughts and one pic to describe your weekend, so goes my list this week:

1.    Scurrying about the house, making it "perfect" for potential buyers to wander through - now, someone just needs to make an offer!
2.    Packing, packing, and more packing.
3.    Cleaning, cleaning, and more cleaning.
4.    Breakfast at our favorite Saturday morning "ritual" spot - French toast, loads of powdered sugar, and a side order of bacon.
5.    Riding the Harley down long country roads to nowhere in particular.
6.    Soaking in the hot tub after long, hard, hectic days.
7.    Looking for houses in Tennessee on, and wondering how much the photos and descriptions are "fudging" on the truth.
8.    Opening all of the windows and letting the breezes blow as low temperatures and low humidity made the weekend extremely pleasurable, weather-wise.
9.    Planning a "Bon-Voyage" party for next Sunday for friends that are moving to Colorado the following week.    (Darn!    There goes my twice weekly massages!)
10.    Bumming because the PVR recorded "supposedly" all of Touching Evil on Monday evening but, when we watched it on Saturday, it stopped before the end of the show.    How long before re-runs???
11.    Stocking up at the market on fresh fruits - time to get health-conscious (again)!
12.    Having potential buyers stay at the house for 1-1/2 hours, asking all sorts of questions, saying "if we did this, we would need to do such-n-such," etc., only to find out that they left and made an offer on a rambler one town away.    Seems the wife has a bad knee (didn't like the stairs) and there is too much acreage (I'm sorry; but all of the information was on the MLS listing as to the fact that it is a "two-story 1895 Victorian farmhouse with acreage" - so, why stay so long, acting so interested???).    *SHEESH*

The best breakfast for the dollar!

Susan Reno-Gilliland, known as "Miss Kitty," an Irish lass, a true Southern Belle; a writer, photographer, animal-lover, dreamer, stargazer, totally tangled (or is that entangled?) in relationships, slightly obsessive iNFp with stories to tell!    . . . (fascinated by forensics, human behavior, pushing all the right buttons of men I find interesting, and seeking utterly-sweet revenge without any repercussions.)     I am a Friday's Child.    Friday's Child is loving & giving.
