That's an interesting image. Walking from the shower to go blow dry your hair and you swerve inexplicably to the computer as if drawn by the hypnotic call of the internet.

My computer has the same effect on me. I was cleaning the bathroom, but here I sit. I came out to get the bleach and the antiseptic wipes. So how did I end up on the computer?

I had a conversation with Son #1 today about going wireless. Will the computer call even louder? Will I not be able to complete a simple household chore?

Feels good to take those household chores in stride. Especially on a sunday afternoon.

I got the bathroom done. Now I am working on the kitchen. It just takes me so long because I have to keep stopping and rest. I would love to spend another day like yesterday. But alas! The kitchen keeps calling me. right now I am trying to get the floor done. That is the hardest job for me. My spine and hip does not want me to work. But I have other plans. I WILL get the kitchen finished before the day is done.

I have roasted oxtails simmering to create some stock. I'm hoping to get it reduced down and divided in time to go to bed.

Reading DC posts instead of shelling 10 lb of peas...which I then have to blanch and freeze....with the heat and no rain, the gardens have slowed down a bit. For the first time in 7 years, we are setting up an irrigation system.

Same here...can't seem to walk past my laptop without 'just checking something real quick'.

Just relaxing now - I did a lot of yard work today in anticipation of the 110F heat which is coming tomorrow, and is forecast to last throughout the week.
