I just got back from PA. Took me 1 hour to get there from pull up to filled up 10 minutes! $3.61 a gallon for regular. Amazing. So round trip 2 hr 10 minute. I would still be waiting on line to get 10 gallons (odd/even system here) for maybe a dollar more a gallon.
I am so sorry to hear about all of you out there in the aftermath of hurricane sandy. Following the updates on t.v.. The devastation is beyond words. My thoughts & prayers are with you all during this difficult time. We appreciate your updates.

Busy weekend so far. Last night after work I took my kiddo to a movie, had to go to work today to make up for a missed day due to the storm.... At work I did a project in occupational therapy for my 30 some year old patient with limited UE use.. we tie dyed a t- shirt together. I have it in the washer now, it came out great and she was thrilled to get to do it! Came home, got kiddo ready for trick or treat (rescheduled.) He decided his costume didnt feel right so we sprinted off to Walmart for another. I took him out in the pouring rain (snow still piled up in the yard so he got to walk through it.) Oh and he ended up wearing his regular clothes, a viking hat and a sword!

We have repotted the Ficus and the Parlour Palm in their new pots, they look great!

Also bought some Cane Straw Mulch which we have laid out on top of our modular garden bed

Both have had lovely showers as it was stinking hot out there already, 30 degrees and we were sweating like anything...so nice and fresh now relaxing in the air conditioning with a coffee
Sounds like you have had a very productive day! Your owl ornament sounds like a great idea. We cannot keep a bird, squirel or gopher near our yard, our cats keep them cleaned out.

You deserve to put your feet up after all that back breaking work.

Even my teeth are tired...
What about the hair on your arms? Whenever my BIL would get sick, he would complain to my sister that the hair on his arms hurt. He needed them rubbed. Men are such sissies.

The coffee house is very nice actually, came across it by accident :) They have a Spa there too! Only in Botswana

SA's Nando just introduced their spinach and they have corn on the cob now. We also have peri peri chicken livers and steak wraps.
The rest of the menu is the same as yours, I used to eat rice and veg or salad

I'm recuperating from a lovely evening with friends. We had Margaritas and sampled some fancy tequilas. We did a taste comparison between making Margaritas with triple sec and with Cointreau. The Cointreau was much smoother and maybe a little richer. The triple sec, on the other hand, had a nice bite to it. Hard to say which I prefer. Then we had supper.

I'm exhausted from all the cleaning. I'm a bit of a lazy cow, so I need motivation to get the cleaning done. I should invite friends over more often. I even polished the silverware.

If this post is a bit discombooberated, it's 'cause I had Margaritas, tequila, wine with supper, and ice wine with dessert. I'm definitely in a good mood. I even managed to load the dishwasher and run it.

Ms M, you are one strong woman! I highly admire you and you deserve to have a good rest. I would love to cook a nice hot meal and send it down to you....but unfortunately I think it might get cold by the time it made it. Please take good care. {{{{{{{{{{{{{MsM}}}}}}}}}}}}}
