Not having "regular" live tv is still in the testing stages. I'm not sure it's going to work for us. While the majority of what we watch is news in the evenings (which I can get without adding a subscription service), we are finding some times we'd just like to be able to turn on the tv, flip through the channels and see what's on/find something to watch. Plus, I'd like to be able to watch some of the shows on the main networks (abc/nbc/cbs, etc).
The subscription services for live tv are now getting up into the price range of cable and satellite plans. But, they are still cheaper. For $45/mo I could do Hulu Live and get all the local network channels, as well as everything else we like to watch. Still cheaper than the $80+ dollars a month I was spending on satellite before.
I'm going to resist the urge for now. Especially since it's summer and it's all reruns, anyway. I need to find a couple of shows DH would like to watch on Netflix or Amazon and DH and I could start watching season(s) of those to keep us entertained when we don't feel like watching news. Mostly, we don't watch news on the weekend evenings. Or I need to get a list of movies going, that I think he might enjoy and we can watch one of those, rather than us sitting there with me scrolling through Netflix, trying to find us a movie.
We got another wall "art" hung. This was in the guest 1/2 bathroom. I had bought this several months ago. It looked better in the picture from the online store, LOL. But, I like the message
I also put some leftover "greenery" I have, up above the pantry and cupboards
The excavating guys finished around noon yesterday. DH figured he was going to have to pay them for a half day/4hr minimum anyway, so might as well use them! He also had them prepare the back yard (facing the river) a bit, so we can plant grass seed. And he had them do a bit out front, where we will also be putting grass. It all looks much nicer and more finished now.
Then he decided to "rest" the rest of the afternoon and went to see his wood worker friend. He sends me this picture of a view from way up higher in the mountains. I'm like you are not at his house, LOL. No, he went to the guys house, who lives up on the top of the mountain straight over us. Woodworker is there building them a bar and countertop. If they walk out aways, they can look down the cliff and see our house. Nice view! haha! It was nice to have him away from the house for a bit, too and good for him.
Later this morning I have a phone conference/webinar to "attend" for about an hour and a half. To start the implementation process to the new payroll/HR company.
