Smoke Got In My Eyes...

but I still managed to sell some things on Ebay, buy some things on, work, take some computer training for some new software at work, and do some improvements on the house. The fires in Georgia and Florida have been pretty bad this year. We had one very bad day where the smoke was so this you couldn't see much more that 25 yards away. A week ago yesterday I had a layer of ash on my car. Most of that was from the fires in northern Florida and southern Georgia. Pinellas county where I live was especially bad due to the wind patterns bringing the smoke to us. Last night and this morning there was a bit of hazy smoke, but it wasn't very bad. Maybe I am just getting used to the smell of smoke.

The day lilies that I planted have sent up bloom stalks and should be blooming in a day or so. I hope that means no more trips to the chiropractor. I am planning a short vacation trip to Texas and don't want anything to interfere with my having a great time!

I found a great place for upscale used furniture on consignment in Tampa called The Missing Piece. I bought a set of table and chairs for Allison and a Rice bed for myself. I figured it was time to give up sleeping on a blow-up bed. Since I bought a bed, that meant that I needed to buy a mattress and box springs for the bed. Now I find that I need a step stool to get into the bed since the mattress level is so high. Actually, I love it that way! And where did I find a step stool? Well, on Ebay, of course! Next, I will get some of the furniture that I have in storage and don't want to keep and see if I can sell it through The Missing Piece.

I am still trying to get some things sold on Ebay, but, like I said before, it gets very time-consuming. I have missed keeping up with my favorite bloggers and reading comments on my non-existent posts. I am not sure how soon things will settle down for me. The house has still not sold, although a family that looked at it on Thursday came back today for another look. I figure that is a good sign. I have mixed feelings about it selling, of course, but at least I should be able to enjoy the pool for part of then summer. Who knows what will happen?

I will try to post again soon... I need to get back into the habit!
