Eating: Hot, greasy pizza that I nabbed from an office event. It's divine. I'd love a second piece, but that would be unseemly, so I'm just hoping there's some leftovers when the event is done in a couple hours.

Watching: I'm not so patiently waiting for the new season of all my shows. Next week!

Reading: Yesterday I revisited A Man Called Ove, which I found uninspiring on a previous attempt. This time it caught, I think. 

Listening to: NPR. I took a break from all-NPR-all-the-time after the devastating election last fall. I couldn't deal with all the Trump-related bullshit. I've finally recovered enough to enjoy it again. Although I'm still filled with despair at everything that man says or does.

Playing: With Thomas Minis. Blowing bubbles. Throwing balls, black walnuts, acorns.

Saying: "If it comes apart you can't put it back together." My son is at the stage where he's very concerned when things break, usually food. So with food this is usually followed by "but it's still tasty!"

Feeling: Disappointed. Something I was really looking forward to isn't going to happen and that's all I'm saying on the matter.

Looking forward to: This wretched heat breaking. It's obscenely hot and I am OVER it.

What are you up to these days?

I loved a man called Ove! At first, I did not, and thought the guy was a jerk. By the end, I was crazy about it. The *book,* that is.

I am sad that I am missing the lives of my children and grandchildren. :( !!

Eating (at 12:45 PM): a breakfast of veggie omelet and particle board toast with coconut margarine. I would have had a turkey omelet, but piano boy stole and entire unopened $12 package of turkey (along with cheese and a brand new unopened loaf of particle board bread) wen he left this morning. If he'd have asked, I probably would have given him all those things, but I would have reserved a few pieces of turkey for my omelet. I am eating late because we were up late last night. Some of is were partying. (Some of us will probably fall asleep on the couch later (but are at work now.)

reading: Crime and punishment, Fyodor Dostoevsky. Depressign as hell.

Feeling: a bit overwhelmed as important deadlines approach and pass.

Looking forward to: upcoming visits

reading: all that driving

Hope you enjoy fall.
