Up normal time this morning. Fed all my furry children and took a few minutes to watch the outside kittens. What a blast! They're so full of energy. At least we finally have sunshine today so they can enjoy the yard.

Folded and put away two loads of laundry that was finally dry from yesterday's wash.

Spent an hour and a half at "election" school around noon. Buck and I will be election officials at next Tuesday's primary election here. Now we know more about running an election than we want to know.

After election school we went to a customer's home to deliver and install some window treatments I designed and made. Customer was extremely happy and Buck and I had a nice drive through some pretty countryside as a bonus.

Supper's done. Paneed pork chops with spaetzle, bacon-wrapped green beans, roasted russet and sweet potatoes. The whole meal was already plated and had been frozen. We'll have more of those yummy orange cake mix cookies I made earlier in the week.

We'll be talking with Buck's mother in about an hour, then we'll do some serious porch settin' until it gets dark. We'll eat dinner somewhere along the line.

Oh Essie, I hope it all went well. I know it's no fun. Are they doing one eye at a time? My mom had it done last year - both eyes a month apart. But you know, the up side is she doesn't need glasses anymore and her eyes look beautiful! She has very dark brown eyes and I guess the cataracts had sort of muddied the color. Since the surgery, her eyes are really a clear dark brown and very sparkly. Has anyone else had this happen?

Today will be occupied by preparing for tomorrow. Buck and will serve as election officials for tomorrow's primary election. The precinct we'll work is essentially in the middle of a cornfield, so we'll have to pack breakfast, lunch and snack stuff. We have to be at the site at 5:30 a.m., which means we'll have to be up at 4. Ugh!

I've already made some cookies to take along, cut the bagels for our breakfast and will have to make our sandwiches a little later this afternoon.

Washed and set my hair so Mother Nature can dry it for me. Already know what dinner will be, so that's already ticked off the list.

I'll have to review the rules and regs we were given at election school on Friday. Gotta make sure we are doing things by the "book" according to Kentucky law.

The rest of the day will be spent writing, writing, writing. Lot of that to get done this week.
