In I suppose, had some leftover Delmonico steak , mashed taters and baby carrots, it was better than lastnight :)
No company, no parties. I'm hoping to take advantage of the cooler night and get some work done on the Dodge in the morning.
In. Two grocery sacks of fireworks was $100 dollars. Dang I don’t remember them being that expensive when I was a kid but Im sure my parents thought the same thing. Im waiting till it cools off so my 8yr old can attempt to lose a finger. It will probably cool off around November, but I doubt he will wait that long.
In. No friends and no life. Tuned up the blades on the belly mower best I could, ground my welds from the other day down and slid it under the tractor. Still needs work bit hopefully it will last through the season. Was hoping to replace the broken sprocket hub on the deathkart, between heat and bugs it didnt happen. Probably read dog training books and hold down the couch.
Our usual celebrate it at home in the USA ain't happening this year so due to the shit weather we are just chillin' at home and lamenting the fact that we should have been at a Scorpions concert tonight.
Instead of my OG Coors it's a Grey Goose and 7 night. Might whip up a batch of chili dogs and fries if I don't end up drunk off my ass.
in, have my boy for the night, we are waiting for the local fireworks to start to watch. First fourth of july to be "alone" in 18 years due to divorce. Glad i got my lil buddy with me its been a lil rough day for some reason.
Took the dog for a walk this morning, got caught in a heavy rain shower. other than that, we sat on the couch all day. Haven't bought fireworks in years. my two dogs that died last summer hated them. new dog don't care but just didn't' feel like buying any.
I had today off, but still got paid for a full day
Unlike many people during this pandemic crap, our life hasn’t changed very much. The one big change has been Mrs ability to work from home, which she has prayed for for years. We spent the past two days fine tuning her office space so it has a “Professional” look to it while she is in video meetings. We really hope the work from home becomes permanent, really no reason why it shouldn’t
Took doggo to the dog park this morning, did some trim work finally...which involved buying a new Dewalt finish gun at Home Depot because my cheap ass Amazon one I bought shit the bed after two nails...
Just got done with dinner ( burgers and brats ), gonna make a fire and make some smores.
Kids were "Meh" about fireworks and all three stands I went to this afternoon were wiped clean, so we'll just listen/watch the neighbors.
Tools... You can never have a bad reason to buy them. Mrs ordered a small Dewalt shop-vac because she didn’t want me using “stinky” in the house (old shop-vac has developed a funk), and I have a few projects to do in the house soon
In. Washed the Hellcat today and took her for a spin to try out the new rear tires. Continental Extreme Contact. Discount put em at 40 psi. Shit was super squirrly. Took em down to 32 and its better. Hopefully they get a little stickier as they break in.
Took a 3 hour nap after that. Had a weird ass dream about being stuck in the middle of a BLM protest/riot.
Just cooked up some steak, mashed potatoes and green beans.
In my comfy chair now with a big glass of whiskey and Coke. Gonna watch a couple episodes of Ozark. I've seen all 3 seasons while working in my office, but the wifey hasn't watched any until last night. Episode 3 and 4 tonight. The gay stuff is coming. I'm sure she'll be shocked
Worked in my yard all day moving my projects around and mowing. Ran a few gallons of gas through the old forklift. Had to make a spot for the new parts donor bus I bought last night for my shortbus 4x4 project repower. Trapped two feral kittens and their mom while doing it. Mommy kitty is going to the humane society tomorrow to get fixed, I don't think she will be a tame kitty. The two kittens are young enough that they will be.
In. Walked around the corner to my good buddy's house earlier for a small get together. Hung out and Ate some food with friends and watched his kids light off fireworks . After that I walked home and watched the fireworks - my neighborhood goes apeshit every year (they're still lighting them off @ 10:45 pm ). I'm spending tomorrow packing gear and getting ready for my road trip/camping/fishing adventure in northern WY, ID, and western CO. Heading out at 5:00 am Monday and won't be back until the 16th or 17th.
