It was a pretty uneventful and quiet weekend. Friday I called the local office of the forest service to see about burning, as we have quite a bunch of scrap wood that will need getting rid of (as well as a big brush pile that still needs to be burned). At this time we can do a small recreational campfire, so each evening DH has been burning a little bit of the scrap wood pile down and we sit on our patio, near it. I'm not a huge fan of smoke blowing in my face and smelling like smoke, but oh well, haha. It's relaxing to look down below and watch the river go by, before it gets dark. We can burn a brush pile after October 1st, so pretty soon we'll be able to get rid of that.
Roof trusses are being put up today. There are actually 4 guys (plus a guy that runs the machine to lift them up) here today working on it. It's noisy out there.
I wasn't able to find any MTurk hits to do over the weekend. I didn't do much computer time, as DH was sitting on his screen, at my desk, most of the time we were inside. So far today, I have made $5.90.
DD hasn't been able to give her notice at her job yet. She has to go in for a drug screen test at lunch today. Then she has to wait 2-3 weeks for the background check to get done.
Did I mention she and her fiance bought a camper trailer week before last? It's a nice one. Used, but only like a year and a half old. They bought it from DF's boss, who bought it new, but then ended up buying a bigger 5th wheel trailer and has been trying to sell this one. DF and his dad went camping this weekend for the first time with it. I'm sure they will use it quite a bit, as they both enjoy nature and the outdoors. They bought it just before she found out she was getting this new job, so now I'm sure the monthly payment for it won't really even be noticed much in their budget, since she'll be getting a $1000 a month more from this new job.
DH says he doesn't really miss having tv at all and doesn't care if we get it again. He does watch a show or two every week on his computer, which now that he's getting used to watching some like that, he doesn't mind it. I still think I want to have tv service, but then I think of what else the $85 a month could be spent on. Like I could sign up for the Ancestry.com subscription again and do that again, instead of watching tv. I can't quite remember what it costs per month/year, but seems like I remember if you wanted access to Europe it was like $35-40 a month. Or I could put the $85 a month towards home decorating. Lord knows I'm going to need a lot of stuff for this big house. Or we could put the $85 a month toward DH doing some woodworking, which he'd like to start doing/learning more once he has the whole shop to utilize. That's about all the ideas I can come up with, so far, rather than watching tv.
