Hopefully you all had a great day or two off. I know this years celebrations were probably a little different than any other year, maybe held outside, maybe with less people, maybe it was held via Zoom on laptops in dining rooms…
Which ever way it happened I hope it was great!
Ours was very low key, we did a bunch of yard work then relaxed by a fire in our awesome new fire pit.
Also took Dexter for a few good long walks & he requested some new photos for you. He’s enjoying all the attention you’ve been giving him lately so I agreed of course.
It was an easy Costco day, surprisingly not as busy as I figured for the day after a holiday. (Though toilet paper was sold out, so still some panic shopping happening apparently)
Lots of new sales as Costco started it’s new bi-weekly deals including…
I resisted temptation to a large degree today and actually left Costco with only 2 items in my cart! That’s a record of some kind I think, look it up in the Guinness book of world records and see where I sit.
Ok then, maybe not.
I picked up one of those Parasuco lined denim jackets for my better half today, they looked really nice and felt pretty warm. Seemed like a good mid-season jacket to have… Not too thin, not too heavy. Just right for fall and spring!
I feel like the clothes I’ve bought for me and my partner from Costco have always felt like good quality and have stood up to our wear and tear, so when something like that goes on sale I’ll grab ’em!
I also saw this little gem, and it jumped in to the cart!
If you’re a fan of Jerry’s stand up comedy, or a fan of Seinfeld you will really enjoy this book!
It’s kind of like a collection of his train of thought while writing his material, it’s gold folks, gold!
Another new product hit the shelves, and this robot had me thinking…
I’m glad I didn’t grab that Roomba yet folks because this is the feature package that you want in a robot vacuum!
I suppose if you’re gonna drop several hundred dollars on a robot to clean your floors you’d want it to be a little more precise than random, and having the base that it self empties into is pretty well the cherry on top… They make it sound like once a month you empty the bin and boom, clean floors.
Again with this sounding really cool, is it worth $500? I don’t know… Dyson vacuums are around that price mark, is this going to clean your floors well enough and save you enough time to live up to that value?
I think I need to vacuum the house and time myself, see how long it takes then multiply that by what I make at work and see what I’d be “charging” then factor that all in to an equation to see how long it’d take for this thing to pay itself off. Challenge accepted!
As always thank you for the continued support, and your comments!
See you soon.
As we are headed in to the second wave of COVID-19 and kids are heading back to school I think it’s important to remember that we’re not out of the corona virus weeds yet, and each province has their own Health recommendations based on the provinces individual risk assessment and I would recommend that you follow the recommendations for your specific province. Information can be found at the following websites.
So there you go, a little reading material for you.
Be kind, be safe and stay healthy!
