I'm also thinking about going back to school; as you get older here in Texas it is possible to do coursework for very little expense or for free.
I pulled out the 2002 five-disk sampler The Mudcat Cafe Blue Plate Special. We're losing so many people lately I think a day of listening to their voices is a good celebration of the lives of those now passed.
eBay and sewing this weekend. Walking the dogs when it gets warmer out and while the sun is bright - that light on the forehead is good for combating the winter blues (SAD).
As the seasons change, so do the re-run offerings on the various television channels. Last week I was up late each evening watching the early programs of a favorite series, but it was just too late. Last night I checked to see if it still streams on Amazon Prime - yes - so I went to bed earlier. I'll watch it on my own schedule.
Gotta clear off my office desk again after paying bills and an annual ritual - choosing an electric company. I renewed my contract for two years with the same company this time; I'm thinking I probably should have done it for just a year since the rate (everywhere) went up a couple of cents a kWh and will be about 25% higher for the next contract. If I'd gone for only a year it might be lower next winter - or not. The gas prices are coming down because of the oil industry, but the electric power grid doesn't run on gasoline. My crystal ball is cloudy on this topic. The company is a good one, transparent billing, easy to understand statements. And as it is, some companies weren't on the list because they didn't have Spanish language materials and were kicked off of the Power To Choose site. I should probably have checked a couple of the old places I've used before. I have three business days to change my mind, so I should spend time hunting down a couple of other companies. It's possible to easily outsmart yourself doing this.
