Weekly Wrap-up 2008_48

We have had Rain. Otherwise, it's been cool.

We installed a new cat flap in the door from the bedroom to screen porch. Once again, the cats' reaction is "why should I push that with my head?"

Election Day finally came and went (I voted by mail, in October). I ignored the whole thing, checking results on Wednesday morning.

We won. No, we can't relax.

Two days in the Company cafeteria:

  • Tuesday Spaghetti Squash and Parsnip Lasagna with Garlic-Cinnamon Scented Marinara
  • Wednesday: Corn Dogs and Tatter Tots
Our cafeteria menu is always "interesting", that's foor sure.

"Lavender has a calming effect". Rich brought me some lavender sachets from a lavender farm near Santa Barbara. Nice!

We had dinner one night with a friend who lives in SF, then met her new kitten. Small kitten. FAST kitten. Very cute kitten.

My group from Work had an offsite at the CA Academy of Sciences. I liked the Aquarium best. The group activity is best forgotten.

Rich worked on the stove. We've installed a more noticeable "signal" lamp.

Jury Duty Win - my presence was NOT Required! Safe for another 12 months, at least.

We have discovered PopTech is an "ideas" conference, sort of like Ted. Amazing speakers. Video on line. Watched 4.

I enjoyed my five-day Thanksgiving Holiday weekend (I took an extra day off). A delightful way to end the month.

We watched WALL-E. It's fun and sweet.

This month I read The Excalibur Murders, by J.M.C.Blair; Tanner on Ice, by Lawrence Block; and The Marx Sisters, by Barry Maitland; I also read half (each) of Duplicity Dogged the Dauchshund, by Blaize Clement and The Chalon Heads, by Barry Maitland. I just wasn't liking either one.

In between and around the rest, I've had nearly enough naps and oodles of snuggles with the cats. There have been good meals and interesting conversations with Spouse and friends. I've chatted with my sister and found topics to twitter.

Onward and Upward.
