It's been a long day already and it's only about half over.
Kris leaves for Virginia tomorrow, so she's been trying to get as much done today as possible. She and Pam went to the Master Gardeners show at the Clackamas County Fairgrounds this morning. She got tomatoes and flowers and has been working to get everything planted.
Meanwhile, I spent the morning working in the yard. I measured for the fence (again -- I did this a couple of weeks ago, but lost the information) and went to Canby Builders Supply for the material. They didn't have the fencing that I needed, though, and will have to order the material for me. I mowed and hand-weeded the back yard, and then used the string-trimmer on it. I sprayed for wasps. I swept and hosed off the back patio (a chore which hadn't been done in three years -- it needs to be done again in a couple of months). I did some more cleaning of the storage shed, throwing out all of my old astronomy magazines, chess magazines, computer programming magazines, and computer manuals. I put together several large storage boxes and put stuff in them. I did a couple of other chores, too, but after seven hours of this I am bushed.
I've got a steak on the grill and beans and corn on the stove. I'm going to kick back and watch some mindless television (I do this maybe once a month for about half an hour). Later, I'm going to play some Diablo II.

2005 — Community Garage Sale The Oak Grove neighborhood hosts a community garage sale every year during one weekend in May. This is that weekend. I took a day off work to be here today, and I'm glad I did.
2004 — The Top of My Head Biking to work. Calories in meats. Stinky size 32 jeans. Cookies for breakfast. Sun roofs vs. moon roofs. The Decmeberists are coming. New foldedspace weblogs. Printing from a Mac. Coming out of a funk.
2003 — Longwinded I need to learn how to revise, how to edit myself.
2002 — Unchained Finally the woman can resist no longer. She approaches the three of us, interrupts our conversation, begins babbling. She starts talking to us about the spirits inside of us, about our spiritual family. She tells us that we don't need telephones because we have the spirits inside of us.
