Quick hello today.
We get some gorgeous peeks at the sun here and there. But there's been a lot of cloudy and/or rainy days. More to come all week, I guess.
But as long as the sun stops by now and again for a visit, I do like the cooler days rather than the heat and humidity so I'm not complaining. :)
Dagan and Leah stopped by briefly on Wednesday.
She had actually let her hair go curly!
She's been straightening it for about five years now.
I'm glad she had her last day of work yesterday. She seemed tired and they were still heading over to Costco. (They picked up a few food items for me, too, that they are dropping off tomorrow morning.)
The "Plan Friendly" flax granola had arrived from Columbia Country Bread.
Talk about "settling" in the bag, eh? We all tried a little chunk...and all agreed that it was basically dry and tasteless like cardboard.
But what do you expect with no salt, oats, or sweeteners. Maybe it will be better with the coconut milk on it? They do make regular granola there, too, which probably tastes quite good.
Everything else has arrived--digital scale and all. My Cashwise grocery order is coming this afternoon. I am doing prep work and cooking for the first three days tomorrow. Starting The Plan on Monday. So strange to see things like chia seed, hemp seed, beets, pears, kale...coming into my kitchen--LOL! The countdown has begun! I shall keep you apprised during this adventure.
Oh, and the swallows have returned!
Karma is happy!
The swallows are pretty darn happy, too.
My laptop has been acting up now, too--very slow and pages won't always open. (What next, eh?) And blogger has been giving me trouble about leaving comments on blogs. Sometimes I think the universe is trying to tell me to just unplug altogether. *sigh* I keep getting error notices all the while I am writing this so I hope it will post. Anyways, I am too busy at the moment to worry over it much. Just wanted to put it out there in case you don't hear from me for a while. It would be technical issues and not by my choice--just so you know. ;)
I have a new stack of library books to read. (A couple of them are interlibrary loans that are due already on the19th--some fun reading, though!) A new crazy diet to follow. Cleaning and organizing up the ying-yang. A cloudy fish bowl that won't clear up. (Dagan says maybe it's the snails--wouldn't that be unpoetic justice?) Christmas cards to stamp. Letters to write. Several unfinished projects...and a little red-legged art table still patiently calling to me. If the laptop keeps working I'll be back Tuesday. ;)
