It is time to think about packing up and returning to Vermont. Wednesday was spent on yard work—weeding where needed, shaping up some of the bushes, and rearranging some garden borders. We had a local guy come in to do the spiny plants and we have a neighbor signed up to stop by once a day and pick up any fallen grapefruit. Thursday will be dust and polish, vacuum and mop—generally tidy up the inside. Friday we will do laundry, clean out the refrigerator, pack. Saturday morning we will be good to go after a few closing up details are accomplished.
I will have to catch up the new television season when I am back in Vermont. I won’t be sitting out in the evenings watching sunsets and stars and moon risings, chatting with the neighbors strolling by. I just read Linda Reeder’s post about her SMART television. My television in VT is not a smart one, although it sometimes gets the best of me. I can use the on-demand for shows I miss and I have the ROKU devise hooked up for Netflix or Hulu+. Actually, I prefer watching on my own schedule.
If I tried to get my ROKU hooked up to the Florida television, it would ask me why I was trying to attach it to a rock. It is a vintage RCA from 1990. 1990! They just don’t make them like that any more. I mean they really don’t make them like that any more.
No ethernet port on this baby.
Mike and I together cannot move it even an inch. It works fine. Mike did buy himself a new TV last winter because he uses closed captioning and he watches more than I do/different than I do.
Not a giant screen, but fits in a corner of the office room. Antiques Roadshow is one program we watch together. And we did watch that crazy fall through the sky last Sunday.
Looks like another beautiful day.
