9:30 am Must be time for a barbeque

up late last night trying my hardest to finish my entry for the Etsy Creative Challenge that Aimee runs every week.

Sad to say I was still not done, so had to work on it this morning, making my lazy mocha drinking morning while watching the Today Show (sigh...I know, don't judge me...Aaron) not really happen.

I chugged the mocha and even made a second one, while finishing up the piece, the theme was to do something based on our favorite holiday song, I chose the song 2000 Miles by The Pretenders, which I think is just so beautiful.

It reminds me of the broken holiday heart ache, that happened to me, oh so many times, before Keith and I were together, knowing that was the one time of year he would be back in NH, and I would want and not want to see him so much...

The title of the piece is 2000 Miles and it is available for sale in my Etsy Shop

but that is a post for another time...

So, I was painting away and still had time to exercise, albeit briefly, for 20 minutes before I had to hop in the shower and get ready to come to the shop for another long day.

I was out of the shower waiting for my hair to dry while eating peanut butter toast when all I could smell was gas, now...we don't have gas anything at our apartment, so I shouldn't worry...but I do worry after the time over the summer that the gang kids tried to light a gas main on fire at the park next door.

I hear doors opening and closing in the apartment next door...and I hear voices, maybe they are going outside to check it out...but low and behold, the gas smell was actually because my neighbors (cough...hillbillies...cough) were firing up their grill, at 9:30am on this, the 14th day of December.

Now I know that because of the Global Warming that it was in the 50's this morning, but people need to be grilling this early in the morning, in DECEMBER??????????

Personally I think there should be some sort of rule that you can't fire up the grill past the end of October, and you certainly cannot use it before 11:00am

Is that too much to ask?
