Tenacious Thursday Tended To Tweak The Timid To Turn Trivial Toil Towards Triumph!

Last Update: November 18, 2021

Hello everyone here in Wealthy Affiliate!

My day started like most others with my routine morning sojourn into the rich blog posts of the vibrant members of the Wealthy Affiliate Community!

I was assisted by, and perhaps hampered a little, by Kitty, who has rapidly become a tenacious assistant at the computer!

When I was finished with the initial foray. I then turned my attention to some more Wealthy Affiliate research! I can never seem to get enough!

Then there was also the never-ending organizing and sorting of the books and papers that I intend to list on my upcoming Woocommerce website store!

The day has started out quite chilly only 40 degrees with the usn out at 10:00 am!

Still, it was beautiful outside! Although, I'll bet that the Blog Dogs are shivering when they are let out over at the house!

It brings to mind when they received new sweaters last year, or perhaps in 2019!

Poor things! It is getting colder, and this winter might be brutal! I hope Monica remembers where those sweaters are. I wrote a post about this at the time!

Of course, at the time, Tig-Tig wasn't with us yet, but she never goes outside anyway, so she will be OKAY!

As the afternoon progressed and the temperature approached 50 degrees (Fahrenheit), I decided that it was time to go over to the locksmith shop house and get some more sorting and organizing done!

The drive over there was very pleasant! I spent over 3 hours over there, and I must say that I feel like I accomplished a lot!

The drive back to the eBay house was equally nice! Right before I left there, I had a call to go inspect a lock which wasn't functioning at the Goodwill store here in town!

When I got there, I discovered that the left door had a worn hinge pin! If you lifted it enough the lock would engage and stay in place! This was a much older door, and I referred the manager to Interstate glass since they do that sort of work!\

The drive back from there was also nice, but you could see that the daylight was fading fast! (I hate DST!)

That was the extent of my "work" today! This is not surprising to me because now that the property tax statements have gone out, most people know what they will have to pay by December 20th (FIVE days before Christmas) during the semi-annual "blood-letting" as I like to call it!

Work typically picks back up right before the end of the year! Such is life!

The rest of my evening will consist of more sorting, computer work, and possibly even a bit of relaxation too! Who know, the end of the day is not even here yet!

I will definitely be on and off the computer like I am usually! It just depends upon what excitement that the evening brings me! I tend to believe that the day was all-in-all triumphant!

I HOPE THAT EVERYONE HAD AN EXCELLENT DAY! FOR MANY OF US, ANOTHER FRISATSU IS TOMORROW! TIME SURE FLIES!

Sounds like things have been a bit chilly there the last couple of days Jeff!🌨

But the daytime highs should improve for you over the next few days anyway!

Happy to hear it was a triumphant Thursday for you in the end, and now into another Frisatsu!!

Make it a great one my friend!

We have just finished off some 'ribeye' fajitas, which weren't the best I have ever whipped up to be honest, not entirely sure why though!! The recipe is always the same, sometimes you win, sometimes second place will have to do!!

Have a fantastic rest of the day my friend, 20 minutes or so from now Saturday will kick in here!!

Ah, Ribeye Fajitas! Sounds delicious! Sometimes things don't always taste the same!

I hope your Friday portion of Frisatsu was the best!

The ribeyes were from the normal provider, good quality meat as normal!

But I feel that the seasoning lacked a bit of 'oomph' tonight for some reason!

The same as I always do.... but different for some inexplicable reason...

Nevermind, I ate well, and intend to sleep well too!

My wife's business runs full-on from March to December. Then for some reason, in January and February, it slows down... for her pet sitting. Maybe it's the Christmas spending that hampers get-away plans for the 2 months after the holidays.

Either that or they just want to relax a bit. I know she is thankful for it. It provides a little bit of rest for her. She still has midday putouts to carry her through those months.

On my end of things, my job takes a lot of my time and that will hopefully come to an end soon. I plan to get my business license for locksmithing and hope that will start to come to fruition for me. We will see.

Have a great FriSatSu!!

This sounds like an excellent plan for you Bob! I hope your course work in that is going well!

Keep Kevin on your list as an excellent resource! He has an excellent network of locksmiths with him. That will also be a big help to you!

Enjoy an excellent Frisatsu yourself, my friend!

Oh, I have already followed a little advice from him and will be getting my business license after the New Year. I also subscribe to his YouTube channel and have been watching his videos, and am learning more than what some of the Foley Belsaw has to offer... but will keep it going.

Oh yes, you will learn a lot more than Foley Belsaw offers, although that was one of the courses I took and completed almost 30 years ago, Bob! It is a good foundation for your burgeoning locksmith business, my friend!

It looks sunny in Kansas Jeff.
I must put it on my bucket list, but not during your "blood letting"
Work for any self employed is up and down. I was always quiet in December/January and July/August which was great for planning sunshine holidays but we're all locked up again in Europe.
Friday here, not quite 9am and I've just finished my last bit of work for the week. This is the first time for a long time that I will have a complete FRI/SAT/SU all to myself.
Cheers

It has been, Bux, but these last couple of days the sun has seemed to be a mere decorative fixture in the sky!

Our temps are at freezing right now, but I have hope that they will rise somewhat and soon! 🥶

I have on job to take care of today so far! We will see what else I get as the day progresses since it is still quite early here!

Enjoy a COMPLETE Frisatsu for a welcome change, my friend!

You had a productive day, Jeff
and the weather though it was
cold at 40 degrees (for me it is)
looked very pleasant.

What is the name of that little
tree on the front with the parked
car? Looks like a huge bonsai.

Yes, the flurry Angels would be so
cold as the weather is already
changing a lot. Hopefully, they
are kept warm.

See you around still.

Grace be with you.

Haha, Elizabeth! Those are the healthy remains of the evergreen hedge that used to run the full length! I made the same joke to Monica and some friends when they first saw me cutting all the deadfall away!

Oh, and I'm sure the furry angels are warm at home! Kitty and I are roughing it, but then, of course, we've done so before!

I hope you had an excellent day, and have a better evening!

Oh, it was shaped like a bonsai
and I had never seen one that huge,
though you can form them that size
and really grow them for 100 years.

You know, that is one good example
of a rare bonsai tree. You can form it
that way if you so desire.

Thank you for letting me know.

Hi Jeff. The colder weather might explain the behavior of Kitty this morning. Trying to get more warmth.
Not on DST now but imagine how dark it would be in the morning if we were. Being retired I can take it or leave it but I do benefit in AZ not wasting time changing clocks twice a year.
So why Dec 20 instead of 30?? I guess that let's the county treasurer close the office for Christmas? Ours is due Dec 30.

I know what you mean, Archie! Of course, I collect clocks--or used to anyway--among other things, so all of my clocks don't have batteries! I use the cellphone and computer to tell time! One COULD say that all of my clocks here are right at least 2 X a day though! 🙄

As far as the county? All I can say is that if they could move it up any earlier, they would! They are greedy! It's bad enough that for many people they tank any Christmas that they might have enjoyed!

I hope you had another excellent day, my friend!
