It's the first Monday of fall and I think it's the perfect time to share…
Things are a little hectic right now – mostly on a social level but also at work since I go on vacation for two weeks in just one day – so today you get random stuff. Because it’s quick and it’s what I’ve got.
~ There are no pictures with this post because my blog host upgraded my version of Movable Type the other day and now I can’t upload photos. Grrrr. I had pictures to go with some of these random things but I’ll save those for later. In the meantime, well, things will be pictureless. Sorry about that.
~ I have no idea what it was about the haikai post but I haven’t received that few comments since this blog was new. Norma might think it’s talking about charity knitting that shuts everyone up but now I know that it’s actually poetry that makes me hear nothing but crickets chirping.
~ Dale and I have adjusted our schedules this summer so that we commute together 4 days per week. I go in around 7 and leave around 2, which I love. And I get to knit on the ride to and from work, which I love even more. You know what I don’t love? Having to make conversation at 7 am. I’m a morning person but I like my mornings to be quiet.
~ We’ve had some pretty crazy weather here lately. In fact, we even had a tornado warning last week. I kept thinking that a tornado in Massachusetts would give me something really cool to blog about but I sure was relieved when they called off that warning and nothing had happened.
~ We are really enjoying our CSA this year. The vegetables are more “mainstream” and we’ve been getting corn every week so Dale is a happy guy. I have truly fallen in love with my CSA, though, after going with Kathy last week to pick up her farm share and finding out that she has to pick most of her vegetables herself. It was hot out there, I tell you! And it was a lot of work. I’m glad we have the Lazy CSA. Sounds like the name of a cattle ranch, doesn’t it?
~ I tried plurking for a while but I stopped. I couldn’t take the pressure of keeping up with those dancing bananas.
~ I have not been able to stop playing PackRat, however. If you have a facebook account I highly recommend that you avoid this application. Really, it’s the
most fun biggest time suck ever.
~ The other day I brought a plum to work and then at lunch time I couldn’t find it. I found it when I went to leave at the end of the day, though, because I squashed it into the bottom of my bag when I put my laptop inside. Luckily the plum guts didn’t damage the laptop but things were a bit sticky in there.
I guess I had more time and more to say than I thought I would. Enjoy some randomness today!
