Last Friday’s Little Road Trip 10.30.2011

Here I am on my way to (Little) Washington, Virginia.  It was a nice little road trip…very relaxing!!  Lots of farm land and little or no traffic.

Behind The Inn @ Little Washington.

This is the kitchen in one of the rentable cottages.  It’s big enough for me to LIVE in. 🙂

This has got to be my most favorite commercial inspection that I have ever done.  I spent most of the day there.  It is such an quaint little town.  Population 200, no traffic lights…just stop signs.  As usual, I took way too many photos, which always bites me in the butt in having to take hours to put them in order, then having to decide which ones to actually upload.
Three nights ago, I got close and personal with a huge skunk.  It was larger than my room mates cat, Patches and I think he’s over 15 pounds now.  This skunk was hiding under a Prius at work.  He stood still long enough for me to take this photo before wobbling down the lot.

It was a nasty day out here in Northern Virginia yesterday. It was  raining and sleeting all day. It went below freezing last night.  I guess I’d better pull those tiny three bell peppers off of the bush tonight….or will they survive a frost?

Last week I re-arranged my room again.  The white walls and white curtains just made it feel so cold to me, so I put my red curtains back up, and bought a little $3 lamp with a warm colored bulb to put on my night stand.  It’s much better now and the room feels warm and comfy again.  LOL….Every once in a while I get into a what I call a “nesting mood”.
Yesterady morning while driving to work, I noticed this symbol on the dash….

After all the crap that’s been breaking down at my house, I was thinking…shit!   Now What?!  I have never had a car that had this symbol pop up before, so I actually had to pull over to look it up in the manual.  LOL…..tire pressure light.  Turns out my baby just needed a couple of pounds of air in all 4 tires.  Phew….what a relief that was…..I had already worked myself into a panic.

Oh…the heater is broken down again.  This is the third time and it’s getting on my last nerve!

Lost Memories 10.19.2011

Last week I  went through a box of photos that I had taken between 1980 and 1998.  Actually there were not that many photos, but about 180 negatives.  I’m sure that the good photos themselves were given out to friends and relatives at that time.  All I know is, that I only have a few and they aren’t all that good. 🙂

I held the negatives up to the light, trying to make out what they were about, but no such luck.  They were just too small.

I searched on Google for a negative converter, reader, scanner, and printer or whatever you want to call it.  There must be hundreds of them.  Different sizes, colors, makes and models all in different price ranges.  Finally I gave up on choosing one because I only have 180 negatives and will probably never have anymore due to my cameras being digital now.

Then I found GoPhoto .  They printed me a UPS sticker to affix to an envelope with the negatives inside.  They will sort them and see which ones are still good and then let me order prints or have them put the photos on a CD, DVD, or USB drive.

I dropped the envelope off at the UPS Store today and I can’t wait to see what they will find. There should be photos of my son when he was a baby that I haven’t seen in 20+ years.  Also some photos of were we lived in Baton Rouge, LA.

Good news, the commercial inspection in Washington, Virginia, is set for Friday.  I can’t wait.  I always wanted to check that little town out.

Look what I saw today… peppers the size of a dime.

I wonder if there is enough time for them to grow.  It’s supposed to get colder next week.  Well, I’ve got my fingers crossed.  Organic green peppers are going for $3.99 a piece around here.

I’m going to chase a car in Woodbridge in the morning, then I have reports to write and photos to upload.  The LDN is kicking in, so it’s time to hit the sack.  Hope everyone has an awesome night. 🙂
