Wow, Skittle, you go girl!

I pureed a seedless watermelon. DH usually doesn't care for WM, but loves the juice. Go figure. Other than that, I'm being extremely lazy.

Huh, I'm not a fan of watermelon either, but I like the flavor. Go figure...

Also, I did some medical terminology back when I took my nurse's assistant course, so hopefully at least some of it will be review, and I have a flash card app on my phone. It has thousands of pre-loaded flash card sets that you can download and edit to make sure they are correct and have everything you need. Although again, writing stuff down helps me memorize, so I might go back to the home made cards.
That's why I suggested Index cards, it's the best way to keep that knowledge and once you learn the root words, you are able to understand other words you come across. I don't know Latin, but now I can at least get the gist of it by what I do know as root words.

Same here. I took Latin in H.S. and can see the root word in so many words we use daily. And for medical knowledge, the root words are right there. Such as Derm. The Latin word Derma means skin. Index cards are a great way to remember. Keep them in alphabetical order, and you will find yourself going back to them often.

Sliced up a bunch of cukes. I had to taste a slice of each cuke individually before I put it in the FP, as we've had some really bitter ones due to the heat. Didn't matter the size, large or small had equal chance of being bitter. What a nasty taste! Was able to salvage 2/3rds of them. They're salted and ready to be rinsed and drained, I may do pickles or just freeze them as is.

Cut up a bunch of tomatoes, will make some salsa cruda.

Ordered some jeans for DH and me from Eddie Bauer, buy one, get one half price, free shipping, free returns, and a Rewards coupon. Can't get better than this!

Bunny It is Applewood Country Gifts and Tearoom in the heart of Delta/Surrey, probably easy for you to get to from the border. I hope you can bring your friend there sometime. You will love it. You can pop in or reserve a time for a real "afternoon tea" with sandwiches and goodies. We just had tea and scones!

Maybe some other time you can come and meet ME there.
