So I did a thing today…

After yesterday’s evening journey of getting the lawn mowers working and the yard mowed, I decided to work inside a bit today…a long overdue housecleaning.

I started with the kitchen since that’s usually a place I spend a great deal of time. After cleaning the counters, throwing quite a bit away. I also swept the floor and emptied several loads of trash.

Next, I made my way to the living room, where I also spend a great deal of time during the week. I started with the table that my computer is on, since once again, I spend a great deal of time there during the week. I threw quite a bit away and put some of what I’d collected in a box. Quite a few paper towels were used to get the table nice and clean. And felt a lot better about my workspace.

While I was cleaning the living room, I found an Outback Steakhouse gift card that I had gotten from a student for Christmas. I hadn’t used it yet and thought it might be nice to have some “real food” for a change. I ordered a steak online and it said it would take 20 minutes until it would be ready to pick-up at the restaurant. It came with a baked potato, salad, and bread. The total bill came to $18.18 and I figure the six dollars and change that would be left on the card I could leave as a tip.

So I made my way to the restaurant and waiting a short while until they brought the food out to my car. I gave a bit of an extra tip and made my way home. I have put the salad and baked potato in the fridge for a meal tomorrow. I had the steak and bread and what a treat it was! I don’t think I’ve ever tasted such a great steak in all my days. Just one of the things that we too often take for granted in life. And yes, I shared some with my German shepherd Abby.
