Things I Am Tired Of: Parts 1 & 2 of 365

In no particular order of Importance, Relevance to Life, or Linear Time Lines (we qualified for a 'free' Direct TV upgrade; I can now watch Daughter C's recorded episodes of Dr. Who over & over again as I dust), I am tired of

1. Not blogging


2. Dust

It is dry and there is always dust when it is dry but the sanding of the drywall inside the rooms that had been flooded three months ago really did me in. Had to spring $9 on a new mop/dustmop.

Regarding #1. I have, can, and will do better than this post. How hard can it be to get back on that blogbike after all these weeks-- especially since we've started a new contest!!

We launched the Fall '14 Mac & Cheese Contest last Sunday Supper. So far, after one entry, we are unanimous-- 'of one mind.' (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/unanimous?s=t)

Look forward, also, to a "Things You Missed As We Here at the Farm Were Living the Lost Summer" series.  Books. Septic tanks. Litters of Arrogant Creatures. Mastering the Art of Tofu Cooking. How to strip multiple layers of paint off a hunk of 'furniture' (if furniture could talk...). Where to find a decent cup of coffee in Jackson, Mississippi. Where to not buy Chinese food in Jackson. Comments on the hardiness of asparagus. 

And much, much more.* 

Big Life.* 

* No one ever said a Big Life was an easy life.


"Auwuuuwwwgh. Marica? What are you doing?"

"Nothing much, Missy. Go back to sleep.


"Did you see me? I was in Daughter C's car ... to... "

"Good night, Missy. I love you."


Be nice. Nothing inappropriate, please.
