Just a few thoughts

It's very hot here. 109 today. Oh well, it'll only last until October or so.

Miss M is trying a week of summer school at her new school. We've found a private school that all of us like, and she's having a great time with "Science Week". They made ginger ale, salt and sugar crystals, and today she came home with a big Ziploc baggie full of "Gak", slimy white ooze. She loved the fact that it caused me to shriek lots of comments like "Eeeeeeeew!" and "Yuck!" and "Get that stuff away from me!" I'm glad she seems to be enjoying this place.

I really need to turn off the computer and go finish seaming up the sweater. Last year, M saw a play in which there was a knitting giant who was covered in tangled red yarn. He said, "I like knitting, but I hate casting on!". Substitute seaming for casting on for me, please. Must fill box for Dulaan Project and fling it up to Flagstaff.

There's a box of Cheez-Its sitting on the kitchen counter. Bad husband. He knows I could easily ingest the 3-pound double-bag pack from Price Club (I'm NOT going to call it Costco, thank you) in one sitting, and yet, he still buys them once in a while. I love him.

I am so ready to not do what I do for a living anymore.

The dog has now had all four feet trimmed, and looks very sheep-like; tiny feet and a furry, unkempt body. Will attempt to get the rest of him shorn this weekend.

Impending sewing adventure; my mother-in-law is going to tutor me through the process of sewing a scrub top. I am very particular in my fabric likes and dislikes, and she swears it shouldn't be a difficult project, so I've found some batik (complete with 40% off coupon!) and am hoping to start it up this weekend.

That's about it for now.

Is summer over yet here in hell? I mean the desert? Ugh, I hate summer. And the fires are scaring me.

Funny how the more we shout EEEEK! the harder they laugh and taunt. Something to cherish. 109, yech! But great weather for groeing pumpkins and watermelon. Much love sweetie (or sweaty)!

Beautiful hats and what a sweater! Piggies and rhino twins. I read 'The Long Winter' with you. I hope we wore hats (we may have, actually). I too am ready to not do what I do for a living, principally because shoving the "Honoraria to Be Processed" stacks into the hopper and flying from the stage in a blizzard of sticky-notes would mean more time to read your blog.
Oh Cheez-its and gak! Gak and Cheez-its!
All the world loves them from Dulaan to Belize! Its
delicious.
(The Gak is really just to torment your mother with.)

Oh no! I haven't driven this blog thing in so long I've become disoriented and published the same silly "Ode to Cheez-It" message. I've clogged your blog. Forgive me.
