taking a break...

Whew, it's hot outside! But I feel accomplished since it's only 3:30 on Saturday and I have done the following:

  • checked on my growing produce (hooray!): 7 baby ears of corn, ~20 ripening tomatoes, ~20 green tomatoes, 2 large pumpkins already turning orange, 3 baby pumpkins starting, Concord grapes starting to turn purple, 2 tiny bell peppers, and 1 tiny Anahiem chili pepper...I have no idea about the potatoes, since I don't know when I'm supposed to try harvesting them! ;)
  • eaten a homemade frozen waffle with freshly-picked blackberries from my yard - Yum! :-9
  • gone to the Cupertino post office to mail two custom-made Hogwarts sealing wax stamps to an online customer (prepaid via PayPal - learned my lesson before the hard way)
  • vacuumed the Miata
  • washed the Miata, including Armor All on the soft-top
  • washed the Honda
  • washed Melanie's CRV since she's flying back from the UK tomorrow - makes me glad I own small cars!
  • (dried all the cars w/ a chamois, mind you! Murder on the shoulders!)

Since my shoulders were killing me after all the car washing, I allowed myself to lay in the sun in my swimsuit for about 10 minutes a side (see, trying to get rid of gardening tan lines, like the really bad shorts lines!)...not enough breeze so I'm still trying to cool down...

Last night I started importing tape #13, but I kept getting antsy again, so I got inspired to arrange all the flyers, posters and odd-assorted paraphenalia I saved from tour on my coffeetable for the special features background menu image...see, I have grand plans for this tour DVD, and from reading the first 100 pages of the DVD Studio Pro Manual now that I have it, I see now how to make easter eggs (hidden menu items - can't be done in iDVD), so my brain started cranking on what to do for which hidden extras...I think it'll turn out pretty cool as long as my plans work out... :)

Off to take a shower, go to Trader Joe's, then my new next-door neighbors are having a BBQ and have invited me, so I'm stopping by there on my way to my former next-door neighbors' new house for dinner...should be fun...and they have a hot tub at their new house, so after today's work on the cars, I think I will bring my suit and indulge as they offered!

  • here we go!

    Drum roll please...both new sites are now live! I've created LiveJournal RSS feeds for each, so you can friend those to keep up with me from now on.…

  • too much to catch up properly?

    Trying to catch up starting back in mid-July...whew! The Police were still awesome, even better for me this time since it was FREE and even better…

  • Plethora of Potter Plus Party Progress!

    Of course the Pottermania really started back months ago when I was shocked that Book 7 would be released this year! I've now reached the magic $100…
