Weekly Wrap-up 2006_11

We had a couple of storms again this week, mostly at night, interspersed with cool sunny days. By the weekend, it was blue and lovely with California poppies popping everywhere.

We had lunch with a netfriend who works at Google. They have a terrific company cafeteria. It rival's Apple's for selection and quality. Wow.

There was a good cup of standing water in the rear floor of the Camry. I mopped a lot of it up and had Rich come out to look. He sprayed water on the car. I saw where some of it is coming in and running down the inside frame and under the rug but then we couldn't repeat the experiment. There's a leak... somewhere. Rich figures we'll buy a set of door gaskets and hope that fixes the problem. In the meantime, we're backing into the driveway and glad that the "dry" season is approaching.

We've been experimenting with pan-less pies, using Pillsbury Ready-crust on a pizza sheet, edges folded over like a tart.

This week I read First, Break All The Rules, by Marcus Buckingham & Curt Coffman. This is a great book if you ever wonder why your manager or company is so lame... or want to be a great manager yourself. I also read Doing Work You Love by Cheryl Gilman. SIGH

In fiction, I read two mysteries: Murder Under a Mystic Moon, by Yasmine Galenorn and A Clue for the Puzzle Lady, by Parnell Hall.

In between and around the rest, I've had almost enough naps and plenty of snuggles with the cats. There have been good meals (including our "famous" turkey pot pie as well as wonderful macaroni and cheese and Rich's stellar pea soup). I've had interesting conversations with Spouse and friends.

I've applied for a few more jobs, gotten some small nibbles. Send good thoughts.

Onward and Upward.
