had another nice weekend. mr. betmo took a few days off and we got to spend some time together and he crossed a few things off of his 'to do' list. we got some lighting ideas for the house- and we may have to mortgage it again in order to afford them. geez- who knew really cool lights were so expensive? next year maybe...
went open housing again- saw a few nice layouts but i must say i was overall disappointed. in this area anyway, expensive housing simply means more added rooms. we aren't looking to upgrade instantly but wanted to know what we had as options. i was thinking perhaps some neat features or upgrades- especially with older housing stock. apparently, not. lots and lots of 4 and 5 bedroom colonials with no personality. who knew?
i have also settled on the fact that i just don't like the telephone. nope. never have really. when i was a teenager living at home- we screened our calls. back then, we had the answering machine pick up and if we wanted to talk- we simply picked up the phone. these days- we have caller id on the cells. i still screen. i much prefer email or texts or simply snail mail. i don't live an interesting enough life to be on twitter or talk on the phone. what i have to say can fit into two lines of email with a picture. seriously. it's a personality thing i suppose. i guess it's why i prefer blogging to facebook. i am not into the instant thing. a phone call is a demand of my time. someone wants an instant answer or conversation. i prefer the slower approach. which- is ironic in the age of instant everything.
anyhoo- i am having an evening tea- i am pooped. last mow of the season at the fam's today and putting away air conditioners and putting down storm windows. washing of the comforters and whatnot. in a week or two- it will be time to fire up the fireplace and snuggle in a comfy chair with a throw. and that pretty much sums up my weekend. i have not followed any news at all and have been watching the netflix and movies we own. i cry everytime in every movie of the lord of the rings trilogy. mr. betmo and i just started the matrix trilogy. i love hugo weaving. perhaps a little v for vendetta in the queue too :)
