Quickies from today

  • I had a pretty good day at work. I didn't get as much done as I would have liked to, but I did get a nice stack of documents reviewed. Sheesh.
  • One of my coworkers was visiting his fiancee in Japan last week and he brought me back a present. Dried Scallops. Um....
  • RitzPix is cool, but they won't do what I want them to do, so I'm sad.
  • On my way home, I was cruising in the left lane of the Beltway, not really paying attention to my speed. I was at what felt like a comfortable speed and I was going with the flow of traffic, so I didn't figure I was zooming. And then it happened. Flashing lights and a siren behind me. PHOOEY! I looked down at my spedometer and words that I shouldn't repeat in mixed company spewed out of my mouth. I pulled over to the left shoulder and a miracle happened! The police car passed me and kept going to whatever he was after! Whew! I had cruise control on the rest of the way home....
  • After I got home Seth took Julian out into the yard and I wandered around aimlessly pulling weeds. Then I decided I was irritated with the enormous weeds in one section and all the leaves in the flower bed, and I started pulling everything out. I was extremely freaked out by all the cicada skeletons. EWIE. But, despite my squeamishness, I only shrieked 5 or 6 times. Considering that I probably saw 5 or 6 dozen skeletons... PLUS! I didn't shriek when a spider crawled over my hand. I found a couple tiny snail shells, which I thought was pretty nifty. I used to love ivy, but I have now decided that it is eeeeeeeeeeevil. Our hostas are huge. HUGE! They need to be split. Anyone want some hostas? We've got about 8 varieties.
  • Now that I've pulled some things out of the flowerbeds, they make more sense now. I can see what the previous owner was doing with them. It's just an awful lot of upkeep. I really don't want to pay a gardner/landscaping company to deal with them, so hopefully this year I'll be better about helping Seth maintain the flowerbeds. The grass is still his problem, though. I filled two giant lawn & leaf bags after about an hour's work. Julian thought the piles of leaves and weeds were great fun to play in, which was a little frustrating, but very cute. Once we started bagging the debris, Julian was a GREAT helper! We are picture taking fiends this month and we got some great pictures. They are located here. Here's one of Julian and me:

  • Once Julian was in bed, I had to clean myself up because I had mikveh duty. Only two appointments tonight, so I was home early, which is GREAT! And now, to bed with me.
