As I get ready for my vacation I think it’s appropriate to catch you up on what’s going on. Right now.
Eating: Cheese and crackers, salami, lots of tomatoes and basil. You know, the usual.
Relishing: The rain that is falling. We need it badly. Let’s just hope that any rain that falls over the next 2 weeks is only at night. Mmmkay?
Watching: The Olympics, of course.
Avoiding: Spoilers on Facebook and news feeds about medal winners. Seriously, people, keep it to yourself so that those of us who can only watch during prime time don’t know the results ahead of time.
Pondering: Why there is so much sexism regarding the treatment of women athletes. Yes, we’ve come a long way baby but it’s clear we still have a very long way to go.
Working: On schedules and payrolls and annual statistical reports and all of the other things I need to get done before I clock out of here until 8/29.
Shopping: For items for the food pantry. July and August are difficult months for food pantries. If you’ve got one local to you it might be a good time to consider a donation.
Coordinating: holding the mail, holding the paper, lining up people to water the garden and flowers, etc etc etc.
