Sat on the patio crocheting a baby afghan for Naomi. Managed to get through back-to-back fitness classes this morning. I'm really, really enjoying the tomatoes from my garden. I have a Black Prince heirloom tomato, and it's yummy! ... Read more

It was another long day at the office, so I'm happy to be home. This evening, I did a bit of weeding, and it was just breezy enough to keep the mosquitoes away. The Air and Water Show is this weekend, so fighter jets were buzzing aroun... Read more

This evening I was pulling weeds. I turned, and, under the bird feeder, I spotted a skunk. We locked eyes, and his tail went up. I thought "yikes!" I backed up a bit, and so did he. It was a close encounter of the skunk kind. He headed off... Read more

I was actually home when the guy knocked on my door wanting to read the gas meter. What normally happens is that I set up an appointment after several threats from the utility and end up waiting around all day for the person to show up. Why am... Read more

This is the second Thursday in a row I got caught in a down pour walking home from the "L". It's a really good thing that I'm drip dry. I found a zucchini in my garden! I'm surprised that I missed it, because it's almost the size of a bas... Read more

Since nepotism stinks, I've decided to de-stress by hauling out yarn and a crochet hook. It's soothing and creative, and I make nice stuff. I managed to get myself in the garden before the sun started going down. Finding green beans among... Read more

Had a good workout today; my triceps are beyond sore. I picked a colander full of green beans, so I'll be making White Bean, Tomato, and Green Bean Salad. I was doing a little channel surfing and found ER reruns. It is the best, and I... Read more

I've been invited to join a Body Attack class on Sunday. Fitness can certainly be weird. I'll keep you posted. We had fall-like temperatures today, so I got to wear my favorite long-sleeve T-shirt. With dip in temperatures, the kitti... Read more

It rained a couple of time today making it easy for me to pull week from between the patio spacers. I worked today and left the windows open. My bedroom is at the NW corner of the house, and it seems that rain is always headed in that dire... Read more
