nothing to say, really

yeah. I'm dying to blog about something, but there is nothing that has happened here in the last 48 hours that I think anyone would find remotely interesting. I came home from work yesterday, had a couple beers, then suddenly felt too sick to make dinner, so the kids ate pot pies from the freezer while I alternately rested and surfed blogs. They watched Star Wars (the original) again. I watched some of it. I like the bar scene best, with those alien-looking musicians.

Woke up this morning still feeling half there, stayed in bed until two cats and one dog pestered me to get up and feed them. Vacuumed the house (amazing amount of detritus), washed dishes (only one week's worth, not bad.) Had a shower (check my January archives if you need a primer about showering here. I'm too lazy to look it up myself!) Managed to walk out to the mailbox to get the mail; new issue of Game Informer (for Calvin) and new issue of Heirloom Gardener (for me). I tried to learn a little yoga online. The Hermit and Calvin went to get a deer a friend had shot for us. Made cookies with Starflower (Ritz cracker peanut butter sandwiches dipped in chocolate..mmm...) and did a caraway rye in the bread machine. Dinner was fried walleye with grilled veggies. I made the veggie marinade from soy sauce, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, chili powder, and garlic powder. It worked.

It was cloudy part of the day, then it cleared up just in time for it to get really cold tonight. When you can see stars, it will be a cold night. The high today was probably 30.

Oh yeah, when I went out to check the grilling veggies the first time I found Togo standing there to greet me. He had totally broken his collar; luckily we had an extra collar. He is such a good dog; when he breaks free he would rather come see me than go for a run.

So that's my world today; at ten o'clock I'm sure we'll switch from the new Cars video game to Red Green, then Monty Python. I'll probably blog surf a bit. Wish I felt like playing music, but that's not in the cards tonight. Maybe tomorrow.

You got a lot done, you must have been feeling better, huh? You've reminded me of a few things that need doing around here, too.

Not the outdoor shower, mind you. No ma'am!

Outdoor shower?? You're a brave woman!

pablo- glad you appreciate the day to day details of life here!

madcap- Yeah, it was kind of a weird malady, but it never quite evolved into a full blown anything. Vacuuming and dishes are a full day's work around here. With three kids and two dogs it's amazing what can pile up on the floor in a week's time.

lynne- I am so looking forward to indoor plumbing!
