Oh Oh... I forgot, the Weatherman said we would wake up to Rain Friday Morning, took a peek
Well, Streets looked wet, no pouring Rain, maybe later? But he said it would be gone by Noon
Anyway that would cancel out any Morning work out back and possibly for the Day
And forgot to mention for the Gardening record, I planted the other half of the Sweet Potato
It didn't look like it was doing much in the Bowl, a few Roots from it but no sprouts yet
So I thought I would just put it in the big Pot with the other half, see what it would do out there
Not much else going on that Day, just enjoying the New TV and seeing what it can do, I kinda like it
As I can remember now that was all the action on Thursdat except this is the LAST Day I had to reconstruct
Didn't have to do that for the Day April 14th as I still had it on my Blog 191... So now let's not make this mistake again
And a break to to some more setup on the new TV, how to get the 'Smart Cast' application operating
I did that and it is kind of Cool, just find something on the Phone to watch, click and it is on the TV
Of course I have the other HDMI Inputs hooked up to my regular Stuff, DirectTV Receiver, Bly-ray Player and my HP Computer>
The SmartCast App just replaced the Smart Hub operation I had on my Samsung TV
But that big Flat Screen reflected more glare from my Sunny Window, even with the Venetian Blind and the Screen Curtain
So what to do about that? Drapes would be the easiest, so off to Walmart I go... Found some nice ones
Then back to spend quite a time at harder labor, taking down the Screen Draw Curtain, then hanging the Drapery Rod
But all done in due Time and it solved my problem quite nicely and they are kind of purty too, ya know?
Oh... and a new Floor Lamp in the Corner also, did you notice?
And that was really all to write Home about on that not quite as busy Day
And then a Call from the Nebraska Furnituere Mart Driver, we have one more Delivery and then you are next
Bring it on, I am set and Ready, anther half hour and the were here, they brought in the Big Box
They started unpacking it, didn't expect that, they got it out of the Box and I told them I could take it from there
Thanked them 'So Much' and they left me with the biggest Job still ahead, I had to do some Wire arranging first
I did my Wiring moves, attached the TV Feet, got it in position in front of the TV Stand
Then I called my friend Patricia and asked if she wanted to try to help me with it, not sure we could do it
She said sure and showed up a little later with a gift from her Oven, a sack of my Favorite Oatmeal Cookies
We had some Chat and then a discussion how to get the TV up there, got the Idea settled and then we tried
It looked like it weighed a ton, but I looked up the Weight and it said 52 Pounds, we should be able to handle that
So she took one end and I took the other and eased it slowly up to the Stand and slid it on and WAH LAH!
And then I wanted a bit of a break... (I am OLD ya know...) So we sat and talked a while...
Next was the chore of reaching behind that cramped space and try to hook up all those Wires.,took a while
Finally ready for Power On and Set Up and that took some doing, had to use my Smart Phone and get online
A weird way to set up a TV but I guess it is a new Fangled weird TV... Finally got it going
They say this new 'Snart Cast type of Hook up is the coming thing... well it works but I am not totally sold
After that more Chat and then Pat had to head up the Hill, I just needed a Margarita and a long quiet Rest
And that was about the Finale of that busy busy but productive Day and I have my new TV!
Well I covered all that pretty much on my reconstructed Sunday Blog, what did I do Monday?
Looks like the first thing was to find a Branch to hold the Bird Feeders to replace the one that broke
Cut down a small Tree in back, sawed it to length and hung it in the Tree, then hung the Bird Feeders
And earlier I had measured how tall the new TV would be and it didn't leave enough Room for the big Clock there
So I had ordered an new one just the right Size, and I hung it the Day before the TV arrived
And that was about it for the Monday before the TV was delivered, a really busy Day ahead for Tuesday
Then I was still trying to find a way to buy that new TV... Looked for an Account where I had some Credit
AHA! 'Nebraska Furniture Mart', plenty of Credit there, did they have the TV I wanted?
I took a look, yeah, lots of TVs there and good prices and Lookee! The one I wanted at $20 less than Walmart
And so the first Event of that Day was I ordered the TV and it was to be delivered FREE on Tuesday April 11th
And then onto the Feast I prepared for that Sunday, had invited my Friend Navru over for BBQ Beef Back Ribs
I had prepped the Ribs with Dry Rub the night before, took then out of the Fridge early Sunday Morning
Had them in the Smoker at 8 a.m. Had some Chicken thighs in there too for Backup
After Four Hours in the Smoker I wrapped them in Foil to finish them in the Oven, all ready by 2 p.m.
My Guest arrived about 3 p.m. a little late, but we got settled with the Feast in front of the TV
And Navru really did like those Beef rins and managed a couple of smoked Chicken Thighs along with them
A long afternoon and early Evening of visiting and entertainment and then he took off for Home
And that wound up a very busy and enjoyable Sunday
Well I was just Daydreaming on that Saturday and happened to see this Vizio 65 Inch TV on a super Sale
I saw it at Walmart but didn't have enough Credit left, still figuring out a way to buy
Anyway comtinuing the Day, I saw a Pineapple on a good Sale again at te Price Chopper
I am not all that wild about Pineapple but at that price I had to have one (and you can plant the op
I have grown a few with some success as Plants but the last one didn't make it at all
So I read up on it online, a little differeni than how I was doing it, tried that and it worked
And a Second Post: "Another Pineapple to Eat and the Top to Plant
Last time I tried it the Plant didn't make it, trying a different method this Time..."
And a Third Post: "Need to Center the Clock Again... Moved the Bookcase and the TV to make room for a 65 Inch TV"
Well, pretty sure that I would buy the new TV I moved the Bookcase and Stand over again to fit it
Then I will have to figure how to get it off the Sand and then get the newOne back up on it
Well that is all the Info I need for my History of that deal, off we go again
And the first sign of Sprouts on the Sweet Potato, and I am betting on a better Crop than last Season's try
And that seems to be all I could rescue for that Day but seems plenty to me... What's next?
And it looks like that was about all the Comment I can come up with for that Thursday
What else was I talking about to fill up a long Say back then? Surely nothing that would be missed
I am sure catching up with these last few sparse pages, I must have been doing something... But what?...
Looks like not much going on that Day... On to Thursday then
And then this: "Looks like we will have some Rhubarb Sauce soon, One of the three Plants gave up but these Two keep going
Well I sure must rattle along on my other pages, only thing I can see for Tuesday the 4th on Facebook is I snipped Basil
Then took a look at my Rhubarb Crop for the Season so far, the rest must have been all daily Drivel on that Day
What I am mainly looking for is when My new TV got here, when I bought what and when
On those bigger event Days I can remember some of the other goings on too
Not much doing that Day, On some of these Days not much to write about
So on Facebook I get the main Photos of the Day and the major event if any
That is my purpose of reconstucting, I sometimes go back to see what happened and when
Handy to have it on the record if I need the Dats later
Looks like on this Day the Canna Plant in the Living Room fell over and later it went in the Trash
A few other survived and went outside later
Anything happen on Tuesday then?
But I had Posted this on Facebook: "A Slow Lotto Day Today... Only won $30... (so far)...
What about Monday then?
And I started the Month with an April Fool's Joke I posted on Facebook, altered a loser Lotto to look like a $100,000.00 Winner
Then later that Day I did win a nice one but not near that faked one... on to the rest of that Day
Here's my Facebook April 1st Post: "HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN! How do you like this one Lizette M Bagshaw?"
The I Posted this for the Real Winner: "Oh Well... Ya can't win 'em All... This time just the Consolation Prize"
All I have to go by to reconstruct this lost Page are the Posts I made on Facebook and the Photos I posted
And the next one said: "New Crops in the Kitchen are Doing Well, but I sure would like to be planting Outside!"
(But Baby... It's COLD Outside)
Then my Last one on April First: "Anyone catch the Boo Boo I made on my 'Roses' Video?...
Well, It's fixed now and I can sleep nights"
I re-edited that Video one more time to change all those 'Violetts' mistakes
That's all I can remember of April First, I just want to get the main Points on those Days
Now lemmee see what I can find that happened on April Second...
