I've noticed that over the past couple of days, I've been walking around smiling for no reason except I'm feeling kind of jaunty.
Got a letter from the company I'm working with on the city's greenspace project and apparently my fee for the entire project, with an estimate of hourly maintenance work, totals like $9000. I had forgotten what an ambitious (for me) estimate I'd put in on that job when I put it together months ago. I don't think I've ever had a fee that high and darn if I didn't also get an email a couple of days ago asking me for an invoice, since I'd asked for a 50 percent deposit on the majority of fees. I get that money, I'm sitting pretty.
Still have all those Greta Garbo movies to watch!
I've been on a bit of an eBay buying spree, but without spending a lot. I've been buying quilt squares from this one seller and consistently I keep getting like 40-60 squares for 99 cents plus shipping. I'm trying to get around 300 squares, since that's what I needed for the last quilt. I've also been out looking for German textbooks and multimedia stuff and after hunting, found a copy of the way cool textbook used in my high school German classes. It'll be so 80s and retro to see it again.
The Method products I bought work great. The grapefruit all purpose cleaner spray is particularly good. It smells nice and cleans.
There are almost no flies left in the house. I killed them all using traps baited with soy milk and guinea pig poop, since I noticed that was what they seemed to be going for -- not actual fruit but more like rotting stuff. It was totally gross but it worked!
