That rain last night was crazy – just enough, in a short period of time, it was like being in a CARWASH!
Just the right tempo for the rain to leave a lasting impression. The tree pods plugging the storm drains had me out in my flip flops kicking up on the street so water could flow freely away! No flooding on our street!!
What is it about rain; mud and even the spring thaw that makes us revert back to childhood! I love it! Grab a stick and draw that line in the mud or the snow to create your own stream! Get things flowing again.
This might be the weekend to get the camping gear out and sorted for holidays, perhaps doing some garden work! I have bedding plants, now need to get dirt and start the planting process. Clean the balcony and organize to make life easier.
Biggest thing I can do to make it easier is to start clearing out the clutter!! Yes, its a Yard Sale Weekend just south of 13th Avenue! And now thinking, some of my stuff is pretty cool!!! How much is it worth. ooooooo.
Now, getting back to the gardening! Our building may not be doing flowers this year depending on the cost. Other costs are for new elevators, the parking pad and underground parking. That’s a given! Now will the outside of the building look like hell! As a tenant I want to live in a place that is appealing, not slummy looking! And last year I looked after the plants! Guess who’s looking for cheap plants?
The building is now closer to 60 years than 20! The wear and tear on the old boy is definitely showing. The front patio is pitted and falling apart making it rough for seniors or anyone to walk on.
I’m tempted to paint my home, just because cheap products were used. My windows don’t close all the way! And the doors bang from the wind blowing through the building, sounds like fun!
The laundry facility has tiles missing and those residents that perhaps have never lived in a communal surrounding are prone to leaving the room a mess – clean out the lint tray! Wiping the washer or drying is just a nice thing to do!
Well, I best get the show on the road! Enjoy your weekend! Hope to see you at Casino Regina for the Proudly Saskatchewan Showcase on Saturday night. It should be great!
