Tiring but a productive day. It was my usual every 2 weeks in "town" for supplies, etc. Well, 11 hours, 23 stops and 85 miles later, I'm home. Now I know why I only do this every 2 weeks.

My first stop was to pick up some chairs for one of Buck's customers. Beautiful old oak dining chairs with spindle backs and cane seats. The cane seats were toast. They'll be as good as new soon.

Did have a bit of an "oasis" this afternoon when I stopped at a dear friend's house to pick something up. He'd set a table on his nice screened porch. Had pot of delicious tea ready and a plate with one of the hugest, most delicious-looking brownies on it. Tea, brownie and company were a nice respite from my busy, nearly-harried day. Got to play a while with his wonderful golden retriever, Molly Gale. Threw sticks, etc. I left refreshed and ready to tackle the rest of my tasks.

Came home to the smells of dinner cooking. It's Buck's job to make dinner on my shopping day. Thank God!! I'm nearly ready to collapse.

'Cept, we're sitting on our big front porch and are being entertained by our 5 little kittens. Best show on "porch TV!" What fun!!

Sounds like everyone had a busy day.

While fixing my lunch for work this morning the electricity went out. So, much for cooking cream of wheat for breakfast. Made do with instant oatmeal at work.

I worked most of the morning and afternoon on a project appraising the value of timber on timbe sale that we have planned on 188 acres. After working on the value of the timber, I started working on the contract for the timber sale.

About 3 p.m. my supervisor came and asked me if I had time for my mid-year performance evaluation. It went well. We mostly talked about his and my expectations for the rest of the year and our workload for the coming summer.

Then I came home played with the dog. Put a load of laundry in the washer. Popped some Trader Joe's Enchiladas in the oven.

Called my mom and dad. Turned on Oakland A's baseball for awhile. Watched American Idol. Turned on the computer and here I am.

yep, you're right, and then, you'll find yourself posting tons and your number of posts will be a very large number, just like the rest of ours. I remember at one point, YT and I both had the same number of posts on the same day, I thought it odd and private messaged him telling him so. Don't think he responded, hum, now I'm annoyed, 808 was the number, but now, he is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay over my number, he must be a busy guy typing away.........I hate that any body has me beat

My day will include [but won't be limited to]:

perusing the stores for yet more butter dishes. If I get lucky, I'll post any fun finds
taking a bath first though
breakfast out of the way
taking a truckload of esterC, as I'm trying to fend off a cold
dinner'll be M&S again
bed and then, up and more work

Gad you poor thing you. 'I'm' tired reading this and thinking of all those stops and effort you put in today. But the kitty's, yep, they are worth sitting a spell for and dinner prepared, that's the best ending to a wonderfully productive day. I think I made that word up
