That does sound like fun, we are interested in this stuff too

It's about 4:40AM here, I just came in from outside. What a beautiful night out, lots and lots of stars. I was out there about a half hour and saw maybe a half dozen meteorites - pretty cool. Wow, those things are fast. Just a split second flash.

Going to get a bowl of cereal and watch TV for a while until I fall back asleep. Hopefully I can sleep in till about 8.

I listen to all of you! Honest I do! And, I DID get my neighbour to help with the meatballs and DH with the shopping (after giving away 2/3 of the list to others to do and only keeping the items I need to buy myself).

But thanks, Addie, it's nice to know you care.

I'm getting ready to go to the farm tonight after I lock down the chickens. To get ready, I have to:

1. Finish processing the veggies I brought home Thursday.
2. Clean the fridge downstairs and the one upstairs.
3. Do the floors.
4. Put away laundry.
5. Bath Pebbles.
6. Load the food hoppers for the chickens.
7. Refresh waters.
8. Empty the car of the stuff I left in there Thursday.
9. Pick up ZaZa.
10. Clean the bathroom.
11. Take out the garbage.

Oh, and a friend is coming for tea.

Busy day. But, while the Roomba was vacuuming, I loaded the dishwasher, washed the dishes that didn't fit, seasoned a CI pan, and cleaned the oven. Now to clean the bathroom and then steam-clean the floors. I might get out of here by 8:00 p.m.

Oh-lock computer in closet so I don't get distracted (or is that hijacked if the Mother Ship is hovering overhead)?

Two things in this world upset me. Children in need and folks in pain. Twoi things that have an easy fix. We have plenty of food in this nation and all different medications for pain.
