starting another mozzarella cheese, presently simmering crushed blueberries to can some syrup. I have/had 30 pints of blueberries in the freezer and I need the room! Have a Fr. bread started, then out to check the apple trees for harvesting

Not much fun planned for today. I'm going for a tooth extraction later on in the day. Doctor sayd i'm going to be fine and will even be able to go back to work after it. There is no way. I am a wimp when it comes to my teeth. i am so afraid.

You are what you eat.

Have to go to the school to get my son's schedule, dishes, laundry, clean bathroom and try to find something to make for dinner. Maybe beat the dog somewhere in there. I kid I kid. My idea of beating the dog is letting him lay on the couch curled up on my lap.

Well I'm sitting patiently waiting to hear about a job. I've been in negotiations with them since Friday. Yesterday they called and said they'd get back to me this morning well its afternoon here now.
So I'll sit patiently for a few more hours and finish up some laundry and then go pick up my youngest from school and head back here to get supper ready.

Working all day and surfing the net til 8pm, then go home and cook. My wife closes her shop at 9pm so dinner will be ready by the time she gets home. Long day for both of us.

Up and out by 9:30 this morning to meet with two clients. One about 14 miles away for a consultation about window treatments for living room. Second one, on the route back from the first one, is to look at some chairs that might need structural repair.

Bonus. Was taken to lunch by the second lady. That was a nice respite and had some exquisitely done fried fish. Perfectly crisp, not greasy/oily and the fish inside flaked just right.

Back here in town, I went to the florist to pay for Buck's funeral flowers, pick up a prescription and, then, stopped at my brother's house so he could check my tires. One of them looked pretty low. Yep, it was. He inflated it and I was on my way.

Stopped at the shop to drop off the two chairs I picked up from my second lady and pet our shop kitty, Julie.

When it was all said and done, I didn't pull into the driveway until about 2:30.

Just got off the phone with one of our vendors because I needed some special upholstery foam for a cradle mattress I'm making for another client.

Have the outlines for two columns and need to begin writing them. Sitting will feel good.

By 6:30 I'll be ready to veg out on the front porch.
