I love mine! I got the Roku1 and installed it on an older big screen tv that we had hooked up for just watching dvd's on and now it works just like a newer tv!

Hubby and I went to play Bingo at a local furniture store where they gave away $50 GC's to their store for the winners. There were 7 games played and hubby and I both won (one prize per person). As we were leaving one of the remaining participants said "Gosh you two are lucky you should do this for a living".

Thanks to all the years helping and watching my husband and watching some youtube videos for a refresher course I was able to repair the toilet all by myself and didn't have to call a plumber!

Started eating out of the garden, finally! Luckily the sprinkler is doing it's job since we're dry as a bone here... always watching rain hit all around us but not here.. may happen tonight! fingers crossed!!!

Happy everyday watching the birds enjoy the seeds and bird baths we have out for them.

Put in a best offer bid on some flatware to hopefully add enough to our set .. fingers crossed waiting to see if the offer is accepted! Was glad to see the exact ones I want listed!

I woke up earlier than planned, which is always fantastic. Got my chores done extra early.

I replaced 1/2 the guts inside the toilet thanks to youtube videos. I still have to do the other half. Just waiting for Fall cuz I won't work in the heat! (Yes, my house gets hot.) Toilet runs off and on, plus it leaks from the flapper. I did the dye tank test to confirm.
