The question is "What are you doing?" I am sitting here listening to Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. Thanks to You Tube. This morning I listened to Mozart and Strauss.

CWS left my place almost an hour ago. We had a great time. After the luncheon we went grocery shopping and bought some slightly unusual stuff. I will have to ask if she ended up with 2 dozen sesame seed bagels, instead of 1 dozen, 'cause I can't find my bag. Well, at least the store that sells them is less than two blocks from me.

Addie, no, I'm not the treasurer of the Danish Club anymore. It was fun while I did it, but I'm glad to be relieved of that source of stress.

taxy, glad you and CW had fun today. I need to find some "fun".

I'm resting muscles between jobs. Washed the porch walls down today - ooo, so clean . Still need to finish the sunroom roof panels, windows, and sliding door (4, 4 and 1 respectively) before I can move the rest of the furniture back in. But first, fix dinner. Himself is trying to finish up the grass cutting before it gets too dark. They're predicting rain most days for the next week worth of days. Where the heck did I put my old mask and snorkel...

Well CG if you find your gear, maybe mine is there too! We used to have two snorkel/mask sets and I can't either one.

I am pleasantly tired today too. Planted a whole bunch of stuff. If I can figure out how to link my pix I'll post 'em.

OK, here's a dropbox link. Hope that works. There are more photos, just haven't posted them all yet.

Just finished watching the music at the ending credits from Slumdog Millionaire.

Terrific Bollywood dance scene called Jai Ho!

At first, when I read "gear", I thought you meant my mojo, as in get my rear in gear! I checked - my mask and snorkel are on the top shelf in the garage. After sitting and eating my body said "enough". I think the sunroom will have to wait till tomorrow.

BTW Alix, the link doesn't let me view your photos. I was able to sign in to my own account. Your pictures weren't there.

I'm listening to Montreal Habs fans honking their horns. The Habs beat the Boston Bruins to win this 2nd series of the Stanley Cup playoffs.

I just finished breakfast. Had to have some of the hummus and seasoned pita chips I made last night. OMG, they're so good! I had to put them away before I ate them all! I'm adding more pita bread to my grocery list. Time to get ready to go grocery shopping. We're out of coffee and we just can't have that!

While I am not a Habs fan, being a Canuck's fan I am even less of a fan of Boston (sorry, Andy - I do love the Red Soxs!). And I agree that with what I saw of the last two games, Montreal was clearly the stronger team.

Today I am going to the Y to finalize my prize and will hopefully get some pool time in as well.
