Can't stop watching the news. In 1981, my mom gave me a trip to Europe for my high school graduation present. So 35 years ago today, I was in Nice, France, watching the fireworks for Bastille Day. I'm really sad watching the coverage of the insane attack there today

Isn't that crazy?

Not sure what the solution is. I'm a really good cryer, and when I saw the report, of course the waterworks started up again.

I picked 5 blueberries today! Nothing else had eaten them! I didn't save any for DH, I just ate them. We're both still stumbling around trying to recover from our flight. I swear there's something infectious on the planes. I got coughed on, and now have a mild cough. Nothing horrid, but not something I got on our island.

No, it doesn't. Had the TV on with a "leftover" episode of The Chew oplaying and a "Breaking News" alert comes on. Germany is the latest victim of a terrorist attack. 😢 Switched the TV off, started to stream a Cleveland radio station, and happy talk instead. The discussion was about how peaceful and successful the convention was this week. Yay! I love The Land and am very proud of my old hometown. And I'm very glad my favorite places are still standing. 😁

I started making preserved lemons a few days ago, in anticipation of making Moroccan tagine more this fall and winter. Today I shook it around and pressed it down in the lemon brine. The small jar is filled with water, for weight to keep the lemons submerged.

From a logistics and execution viewpoint, it was a success. I refuse to comment on the results because DC is a non-political forum. I know my old home city is still standing, no one died, few were arrested, cops were praying with protest organizers. and most importantly, those who attended were impressed with Cleveland. I guess after you host 1.3 million people for the Cavaliers NBA Championship parade, what's a few 100,000 people?

I'm relaxing. And drinking wine - which is helping with the relaxing. Over the last three days I disassembled a shelving unit Himself made when we were living in our apartment, moved a couple pieces of furniture around, and decided I didn't like the layout after all. I spend today (Friday) shuffling furniture around, swapping a couple of pieces, and reassembling the shelving unit. Most stuff has been put back, I have free shelves for a few of my appliances that have been residing in the basement, and the kitchen is slowly becoming more workable. Last job is to scrub and then rub with furniture oil an old dresser of my great aunt - I'm repurposing it to almost all of my spoons/turners/rubber scrapers/whisks/etc that now reside in nearly half a dozen baskets and pitchers. My kitchen is sorely lacking in drawers.
