It's finally Friday!
It's been a busy week, and I'm glad that it's Friday evening! Before I head out to finally tackle the garden, I'll purge some of the highlights of the week here :)
Loch's open house at the Math & Science Academy was this week, and he was eager to show us his new school.
Here's their garden, ready for fall planting!
Posing in front of the school
Showing off the school's new t-shirt design, and check out the dolphin, it's covered in money!
They have a gazillion class pets in his classroom, some kind of bearded dragon, 2 other unknown lizards, turtles, crickets (for food, I presume), fish and...
Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches! The masking tape made me laugh - when we went to tour the school last spring the teacher told us all about how the huge cockroaches escaped last year and had to be rounded up, I guess this is the new solution :)
Here's the "chore board"... check out the upper right hand corner :)
Other events - I got started on my list of maintenance action-items...
Here's the new pair...
Turns out my days of 20/20 are over, not only did I need glasses, but I am now going to be sporting multifocals - I imagine I'm in for a nice surprise when the glasses are in and I first pick up a book again! Wow, glasses are expensive. Of course the eye doctor quoted about $600, I almost choked - then I hightailed it over to BJ's (our equivalent to Costco), they were cheaper than anywhere else and I was able to order virtually the same pair for $196. Still expensive, but at least now I will be able to see. At $600 I think I'd stay blind!
I might have mentioned it's still been in the high 80's and 90's still here, no longer! Yesterday the temp fell 20º in 20 minutes! We were leaving music lessons hot and sweaty, when the winds picked up to about 35 and the cool air just started blowing in fast. I felt like doing a happy dance in the parking lot!
what a difference!
My eye appt prompted me to go ahead and get my haircut (for the first time since last November!), which prompted me to go home and "wash that gray right outta my hair", that culminated in eyebrow tweezing and a home pedicure. None of those things will help my blood pressure but they sure improved my outlook!
It's 65º outside right now and after dinner, I WILL go outside and see what the garden has for me, I have really neglected it for about 10 days, and from the back door I can see what looks like red confetti all over the beds... cherry tomatoes I'm sure! Oooops.....
