I’ve been home alone for the last 5 days +/-. Its been quite nice in some ways. I get lots of work around the house done! No sleeping baby to wake up, no other commitments to attend to. Ok, well, I do have work and website stuff to do :/ Still, more relaxing then usual.
Right now I have sap boiling down (which will likely make this house seem like a grow-op house with all the moisture floating around). And generally not too much else pressing tonight which is really nice. May watch some tv, I should probably bring in some wood, and I should get some more website work done… ok, I do have lots to do 🙁 Sure is nice to sit here for a while too, my excuse can, at least for the time being, be that I’m still sick. Cough is hanging on. Come on vitamins! Hoping they get my body back into shape so it can fight this junk. Eating veggies too when I can, even though I hate them.
I’m SO looking for a reason to drive into town and get a Tims.. I do need a part for the toilet I just installed,… but I AM going in tomorrow too anyways (for iPad 2) so I should save the $7.42821 that it costs to drive in. I’m also going to Cantire on saturday, so definitely thats a good reason to wait. Darn, just reasoned myself out of a Tims :S
And YEP, I’m heading into town tomorrow, I plan on being at the future shop at around 5pm for the iPad 2 launch. Will I be anywhere near early enough? No idea, I have zero idea how many people will be lined up, if any at launch. I assume there will be a few, but hopefully not enough to exhaust future shop inventory! Sadly, they couldn’t tell me anything about the shipment, how many there were, what models,… they couldn’t even tell me the price? Wha? Their website HAS the prices on it for the second gen ipad, couldn’t they look on their corporate website for that? Anyways, good to know that in the age of technology, a tech store like future shop isn’t weighing themselves down with said technology in order to provide the customer any extra benefit on top of the one where the customer lightens his pants by laying down a wad of cash for (enter high tech over priced product here).
Welp, I should get me a tea to sooth my throat, check the sap to see if its magically and revolutionarily turned into syrup yet and watch some TV. Wish me luck!
PS: Don’t worry, that image isn’t of our tree, that would be brutal 😛 Just a pic stolen from a tapping site that has a different approach to tapping trees – in a good way: http://www.gardengrapevine.com/EasyMapleSyrup.html. BTW, I think I need a Candy thermometer now.
