I'm hiding in a room with the blinds down. I got another migraine and I'm glad there are a bunch of things to eat in the fridge, that don't need any cooking.

Sorry to hear that, taxy. You aren't having a good week right now, are you? I hope things go better for you soon.

I won't be able to move tomorrow. Maybe I should do a little alcohol rubdown tonight. Looks like I'll be cracking open the seal on my bottle of Campari...Click image for larger version

Thanks, dragn. The bench is actually cast aluminum. Pretty easy to move. And thanks for the "offer" of heading your way. I finished the garden yesterday because it was the last day we see pleasant weather. We're getting our own batch of heat and humidity for, I dunno, the rest of July? Except to grocery shop or visit doctors, I'm hiding in the A/C!

If you love bacon like I do, I was just reading this recipes about making a bacon burger. After you fry the bacon , take some of the bacon grease and spread it on the bun. Then take some of the bacon grease out of the pan (just leave about 2 tsp. in the pan) and fry your burger in it. Then toast each bun half, cut side down, in the hot skillet for 2 to 3 minutes or until lightly golden and crisp.

Just took down my (Mom Cave) area in the garage.
Dismantled my loom. Boxed it up. Took out my art desk. Boxed up yarn that I want to keep.

Frustrated at a lot of things right now. Mostly the Shop Vac not suctioning up anything.
It's You Tube time to fix that problem. I can't even get the lid open. What did my son do to it!?

Not really having a good day.

When you said bacon burger I pictured something completely different:

Bacon. America loves it (as long as it's not playing in a crappy rock band with its brother). Slater's 50/50 in San Diego knows that all too well, so, in honor of our nation's birth, they created the 'Merica Burger, which isn't just topped with bacon... it's MADE of bacon, including two bacon patties topped with bacon, in addition to bacon cheese, bacon bits, and plenty of bacon grease.

I just saw a Monarch butterfly on my Zinnia flowers. I have not seen any butterfly for so long. What a treat.

After brunch, I took a very short four hour nap and woke just in time for dinner! I'll complain tomorrow that "I could not sleep last night."

Listening to baseball! Live, fresh, never-played-before baseball! Well, it's only a "Summer Camp" game. The 60-game season doesn't start until next week Friday. But it's BASEBALL!

Waiting for the disposal company to come.
Have a feeling my cans will be tagged with a warning. Again.
It's been a busy productive few weeks here.

I'm waiting for my groceries to arrive. It's supposed to arrive between 12:00 and 15:00. They called about a substitution at 10:30, so I think it will be earlier rather than later, in that delivery window.

Everything is ready for decontaminating the stuff and for checking off the stuff on the receipt.
