One Year Living Alone

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before we get started today, I just wanted to share this pic I took of Crazy Otto’s Empire Diner at night that I took while leaving Borunda Asian Buffet last Wednesday night. I decided that this pic was too good to pass up.

And here’s an update on my weight loss. Going into this week, I am down an additional four pounds which puts me at 235 pounds. Still doing good, especially since a good chunk of my “diet” consists of drinking tons of water and drinking unsweetened green tea when I go to Dunkin Donuts when I’m at work. And to think that I did this in a month’s time is pretty damn awesome.

After work on Sunday, I finally managed to really test out my new mower that I got through Walmart.com last week. And apart from the fact that there were times where the grass bag kept popping off, it worked pretty well. And I was able to fill all five of my tubs that I use whenever I do yard work with grass so I could put them out on the curb for the town to collect, which they do on Monday mornings. And I also found out that a  weed whacker that was left behind at my house still works. I just need to get a replacement blade which I might do this Thursday for pay day.

There wasn’t much that has been going on today. It rained in the morning when I went to work at The Rose Quartz Stand. It cleared up when I left at noon. Had lunch at Borunda and then after that, I went home and finally started working out. Nothing major. Just did some work with the resistance band and I also managed to dig out my Ab Roller that has been sitting in my closet forever before going back to the shop.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And after going back to the shop, I picked up turkey burgers for dinner and decided to try and finish painting my back door. Managed to get it completely coated. I may have to put another coat on but now I have both doors painted.

In short, I can hardly believe that it’s been a year that I have been living alone after my sister moved out to Buffalo with my nephews. How the time does fly.

Filling In at The Rose Quartz Stand

It’s been a while since I wrote a post but so far, things have been going well.

For starters, I am sort of on a break from filming my vlog series One Lone Cat because nothing’s been going on. However, I have spent my downtime uploading my back catalog videos to the site through WordPress because YouTube decided to demonetize a chunk of my videos because they were not considered “advertiser-friendly.” And content-wise, there really isn’t anything that would be considered objectionable. But as far as I’m concerned, I think it’s safe to say that I might be posting videos to the site for the foreseeable future.

After all, I gained the ability to upload videos through WordPress to the site when I upgraded back in February.

It is located across the street from Burger King in Herkimer.

The Rose Quartz Stand sells geological treasures, crystals, stones and other assorted collectibles. I worked there last Saturday from 12 to 4 and I will be there next Saturday from 12 to 5.
