*I went to the farmer's market this morning.
*Running a bit behind schedule, but what the heck. I'm still on vacation.
*This time next week, I will not be on vacation.
*I think it is kind of fitting that the last Wednesday Visit With The Veggies for 2010 happened during a torrential downpour.
*I can still go to the farmer's market on Saturdays, but it's not the same.
*Going on Wednesday is like being a part of a super-secret club.
*The people who see the world during daylight and who don't have to rush...
*It's OK if you're thinking, "Sheesh! I wish she'd just go back to school and stop complaining about it already! She had a whole summer off, for cryin' out loud!!!"
*I don't blame you.
*But last year was the worst year I've had in over twenty years of teaching and this coming version doesn't look to be any better.
*Retirement is very far away...
*I am knitting the sock-in-progress furiously because it seems like the sort of thing a person should be doing as they await the start of yet another school year and don't particularly find anything good about the whole sorry state of affairs.
*Or I could be completely mistaken and getting all worried about nothing. Maybe it will be the bestest, most awesomest year EVER!
*That happens sometimes...
*I watched Zombies Of Mass Destruction this afternoon while I was waiting for the tomato sauce to finish simmering.
*Did I mention that I bought tomatoes and basil today? I did.
*Today's Zombie Awareness Tip: If you think the zombie situation is the result of a terrorist attack, you are already half-way to The Land Of Bad Decision Making and Rampant Blaming Of Others When You Should Be Paying More Attention To The Rotting Creature At The Door.
*Make a note of it.
*This one was part of the Eight Films To Die For series that pop up every year.
*And if you aren't sure about that, please refer to the five thousand minutes of promotional footage prior to the start of the main feature.
*Still, I consider it five bucks well spent. Any training is good training when you are preparing for The Coming Zombie Apocalypse.
|There is nothing finer in this world than a patch of sunlight and a dollar store cat cave.|
*Don't be taken in by the cuteness. The Absurdly Gi-normous Kitty has decided to take mealtime matters into his own hands.
*Found him dipping his paw into the chili pot last night.
*That's right. You heard me. Chili. And it was clearly not his first attempt at sampling.
*I think we all slept rather lightly last night...
*I don't care what The Cat Whisperer says. We need to get some crunchy kibble around here.
*She's pre-approved a prescription for it so I'm gonna order some just as soon as I remember to do it and am not doing something else.
*Like guarding my chili...
*I shudder to think what will be going on around here this time next week.
*He'll probably be ordering pizza and sending out for Chinese.
*I can see it now...
|Wait...YES! That's the delivery guy! Do you have enough for the tip?|
Happy Wednesday, everyone! Enjoy the last few minutes of the mid-week experience and the anticipation of weekend days. This time next week, I'll be doing the same!
