1. Dream about all the ways I can torture everyone who works at PayPal (or at least the ones who answer the phones).

2. Shower and get dressed (I was up late, if you call 6:00 a.m. late, and since waking up have been dealing with PayPal, but they aren't my pals right now).

3. Send buckytom a PM (I wrote it earlier but one of the PP people we talked to said to exit out of everything, and I didn't remember I had the PM waiting to be sent ).

4. Go out for lunch.

5. Go to an antique shop we saw last night as we were looking for a hotel.

6. Go out for supper.

7. Hang out at the hotel (maybe in the pool, which is right next to our room, checking out DC, lying around like a lump, eating junk--I think I've gained 7,049 pounds on the trip--, etc.).

Late start for me today after being on the phone until 2 a.m. with my youngest brother. Last night was the opening performance of Chicago. He was on an actor's "opening night high." Can't believe we talked for over 2 hours.

Was lazy this morning and did the daily chores in slow motion. I wasn't too hungry so I had a bowl of cereal and juice for breakfast.

Today's mail was more positive than usual. Received a communication from the insurance company notifying me that they'd approved and paid the $13,000+ bill from the airlift company for Buck's transport from here to Nashville. Yeah!!!! Can check that headache off my list.

Also received two coupons for "free" boxes of Cheerios. Max value $5 for each. Works for me. I'm going shopping on Wednesday and a free box of cereal sounds like a plan.

Later in the morning I had an appointment with a potential new shop customer. Got the job. More dining chairs. I'm becoming the queen of chairs. There are so many in the shop now I could start a classroom.

Gonna play it lazy the rest of the day. My sweet tooth has been annoying me so I may make a batch of cake mix cookies. I'll see how motivated I am in a little while. Right now I just want to take a nap.

Up early and off to Frankfort Fest, a wonderful craft fair held every year on Labor Day weekend. I found some lovely things, so I'm a happy lady.
No idea, what to make for dinner.

We're having a long windy, rainy day today - perfect for putting up some garden veggies. This morning, I froze four ice-cube trays of chopped basil in water and picked a bunch of Kung Pao peppers, tomatoes and Anaheim peppers this morning before the storm.

DH and I went to the Feed 'n Seed store during a pocket of dry weather and bought a case of canning jars. I'm not going to can, but I have several pounds of tomatoes that will be frozen sauce later this afternoon. I'm also going to make a few more batches of pesto and roast, peel and chop some Anaheim chiles for the freezer. I guess I could leave some of them whole, after roasting and peeling, for stuffing later. If I have time, I might make a batch of chile sauce.
