Weekend randomness

Going to look for bargain tiles for the bathroom floor/walls at the Habitat Restore:
J: I hope you find something you like.
Me: If it's cheap enough, I can be quite open-minded.
J: You'll have to live with it the rest of your life.
Me: Well, there's a lot that I already have to live with.
Pause
Me: That hasn't been fixed.
Pause
Me: Not you!  The paint on the bedroom ceiling, for example.

After being told that the originally equipped 205/75 tire size on our van is an oddball size and out of stock, we 'plus sized' to 215/70 and walked away to spend the hour installation time:
J: Wider is good
Me: Ha, that's why you like me?
Smart man just laughed.

After seeing the new tires:
J: Wider is sexy!
Me: The tires, right?

What else happened?  We saw a turkey vulture from 6 feet away when we stopped to watch it eat road kill- no camera, darn it.

Found a little garter snake under the old shingles J picked up. I thought it was cute, he didn't.
Rototiller and weed whip are working, and we used them. Planted our veggies that we bought in pots. J's pumpkin seeds are sprouting nicely, but not fast enough  for him.

Our field was mowed and the hay baled, 3 horses now vacationing in our pasture.
The old bathtub is off the front steps and in the back of J's truck, and the new tub is caulked.
Plastic is off the windows, winter drapes are clean and away, and the summer ones are ironed and up.

The price of gas downtown went from 2.92 to 2.67, so we filled up.

J watched a manly movie to recover from the previous girly one. I didn't join him. He has to work tomorrow so was in bed by 7:30.  I didn't join him.

Sounds like a great weekend!
PS. My husband and I both really enjoyed the Blindside!
