Someone Is Watching

Have you ever went outside and had the feeling that someone is watching you?

For the past few weeks I have had this feeling that someone is around and watching me, when I go outside.

A couple nights ago I went back outside to get something I had left in the car and I looked into the darkness because I know someone was there I could feel them, I had chills run up the back of my neck but I did not panic or let on like I knew, I got what I went out for and then I ran up the stairs and into the house locking the door behind me, I looked out the window but did not see anyone.

The dogs are barking off and on and I never see what it is they are barking at.

Until today…….

I decided to go to work this evening instead of early today, I had loaded the car with what I needed to get done and I got Tony and off to work I went, as I pulled out of the driveway I seen someone standing at the edge of the woods across the street, he could see my house from that point. I told Tony that is not going to work! I drove about a mile up the road and turned around and headed back for home. This man was still standing there. He was around six foot tall and late twenties to early thirties, thin but not skinny. He wore blue jean shorts and no shirt, the shirt was bright greenish and was hanging out of his pocket. He had a backpack on and wearing a green baseball cap. He had dark hair and a clean cut bread.

I came inside before I called the police. In no time they were here and I gave them the information and he was not aware of the two abandoned house in those woods and the field. The police assumed it was the local mental guy that picks up cans and is harmless but we know what he looks like and its not him, this guy is younger than that one.

I went on to work at the advice of the policeman, he said he would watch out this evening and I ordered a patrol. As I was leaving for work I seen the policeman going into the woods.

I do have an alarm and cameras up but still this guy was up to no good.

Just Say No?

Tuesday May 10, 2016

Its was a weird day with many things to do outside of my home.

I had planned on the calender to take someone to the dentist.

I needed to paint the interior of a house.

Tony needed a ride to get parts for his truck.

I needed to deliver trash to the can.

I needed to deliver food to someone in need.

I did the trash drop off first, only to find they did not pick up last weeks trash!

I went to give this man food and then I went to my sisters to call the trash company while tony went for the numbers on those parts he needed.

I called and got the trash pick up set to be got within forty eight hours. Chatted with my sister till I had to go take the lady to the dentist.

I gathered everyone in the car and off to get things done, for them. I dropped off the ladies first but I walked in to find out how long they would be and the lady handed my lady a clip board with what they needed to know but she said ” Honey I cant read or write.” The receptionist said” did you bring someone with you that can?” and they looked at me. I held my hands up and said ” I don`t know their stuff.” not wanting to get SUCKED into their business. The receptionist said” she can just tell you.” I said ” sorry I am just the driver, how long?” and she snapped at me with thirty minutes. I was out of that place running! I knew it would be an hour since she had to ask her ALL those questions.

I went to several places to get Tony`s quotes of prices for parts and then the hour was up and I went back to get the ladies, then run by the bank so Tony could get his money for those parts.

One of the ladies said ” lets go get us a buffet.” I said ” can`t I got stuff to do and only an hour to get it done.” She continued by saying she was so hungry and Tony just told her you`ll be home in a few minutes, and that was true. Then about five minutes she said ” I wished you had time to stop by the grocery store so I could get milk.” I knew what she was doing, trying to make me late so I could do for her so I said this, ” You cannot manipulate me by making me feel guilty so I will drop what I HAVE to do today and do for you, I told you two that I could take you but I have things to do also, I cannot go out to eat and then take you shopping again this week.” I already know they have plenty of food, enough for a month because I took them shopping last week.

I dropped them off and we did get the money and back before the dealership service department closed, got the order in and then went to the parts house and got those parts.

We went by to leave the parts with the mechanic but he was gone. While walking at my sisters back door a snake laid there, barely missing the neighbors dog, Tony killed it with a shovel after it tried to bite him. We think it was a rattle snake but had lost his rattles, he had a bunt tail and not pointed.

I did not get to work and now its after four pm, so me and Tony stopped in to see this elderly lady that we love dearly, we sat and talked with her for over an hour. Tomorrow I will take her some candied pears and other home canned goodies. She is 89 years old.

How was that for a nice calm Tuesday?

People, People And More People

Learning to trust people can be hard and when you are in business for yourself you have to let go of everything that tells you to keep that wall up and let people in. Sooner or later you`ll learn to rad people, some still fool you and other will be as they appear.

First I has another no show to look at the empty rental house.

The clinics here are so hard to get in touch with to get test results, even after they call and you miss that call and are told to call back. They just refuse to answer the phone. Tony does not understand that I cannot do some thing due to the laws and one is run in the doctors office and pick up test results. The receptionist gave him a hard time so he signed in and told her that he will be back in a few hours by that time you should call me! Next time, a few hours later, I went in with him and I went to the bathroom while he stood in line, When I came out he told me that the receptionist said it`ll be $1.00 per page, I said “What? why are they charging you? That is crazy.” Then the lady, nurse, we needed in the first place came out and said ” I told you to call me, I left a message.” Tony said ” I did but NO one ever answers the phone, I have called three days in a row.” She GAVE him a copy and is always nice, no matter how rude people are she is nice anyways, And we were on our way. I have no idea what the problem is with that receptionist, she was not the usual.

Next I drove my sister to pay off the burial plots, we are now covered as far as a slice of land to be planted in. I have a couple more to buy and I have those on reserve and I will pay those off by the month. This lady is the nicest person I have met in so long and you can tell that its the way she acts all the time.

I have another tenant and I sen her at her workplace and you can tell she is always nice because she has never changed since day one that I met her at her job or renting to her.

How about you? can you spot a fake? Do people disappoint you?

Blog Smash Up – A Little Of Everything

The Grid:

First I want to say that five rows of corn was planted today, it began to rain so the last row of seeds was not put in the ground. Nor did the pumpkin seed make it into the dirt 🙁

Not one blade of grass was mowed because I chose not to mow till evening without watching the weather.

The dogs loved their short run/ walk and drag Angie all over the place. Then have the nerve to try and steal extra treats while I was fetching fresh water.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

American Dream :

It was a quite morning with few calls coming in, none for me.

In my head I have made plans to work on the old home place, just get started pulling out old worn sheet rock and filling the empty trash can, that I am paying for by the month.

I want to fix my old home so if I wanna just chill for a while there I can or I can stay a week, whatever but it need all the repairs done first.

Around seven om the phone rang and I did not know this number but I answered and it was someone know is interested in the last empty rental I have, I took an application and will show it tomorrow.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Never Pay Full Price :

I went to walgreens for the diet Pepsi that is on sale three for eight dollars and the angel soft toilet paper that is three forty nine but with coupons I only paid one dollar and ninety nine cents 🙂

Dog food from walmart, thirty one pounds for eighteen dollars, minus the five dollar coupon and kibble n bits for only thirteen dollars.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Serious Or Not :

While blogjob was down I went to mylot and chatted about with some of those ladies and gentlemen. I did not learn anything new.

Tony talked to the American Indian nation about quitting smoking, when the doctor says he can wear the patches they will give them to him to stop smoking. Yay me! I will go into withdrawls from inhaling second hand smoke for ten years.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Food For Everyone :

I can say that for days and days I have been eating foods that are bad for me, sugar free ice cream is one and I can say this without shame, do not eat this ice cream unless you want serve gas that will make your best friend, the dog, run away from you 🙂

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Making it Matter :

Yes I loaded the car with cardboard and paper and unloaded it at the local recycle bin.

I have managed to keep the house neat and I have washed both clothes and dishes till I am sick of all of them.

I filed coupons today and spent a few.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well that wraps up my day, it was kind of boring, I liked it like that 🙂

This will be my last day off till….. who knows.

How was your day?
