Projects with agitation – When I was younger, I could bounce around several projects at the same time. Not anymore especially if one is a project with agitation. That is a project that should be easy but is more complicated than you expect. It requires thinking. Lots of thinking. There are some fails along the way requiring a redo of at least a part of it. If I am doing one of these, I have enough trouble finding the brain cells to brush my teeth. All TV must be mindless (like there is any other kind in my house!). Don’t want to overbook either. I can’t lose focus. Dinner plans can throw me off! I finished one of these this week. It took three days of cogitation (and agitation) but in the end, it turned out ok. Not the way I thought, but ok anyway.
A pleasant surprise – There is nothing like Jersey crumb buns. Especially those purchased at the beach bakery. This week my next neighbor had a beach trip. I watered pots for her and she rewarded me with a dozen crumb buns. After a moderate gorging episode, the extras were frozen to dish out sparingly. They are wonderful but must be a thousand calories each!
Floodgates – The buns brought back wonderful memories of beach life past. Every morning at the crack of dawn, we would go to the bakery to get fresh goods. It was a pleasant ritual. We walked and biked enough to counteract the calories. It was the best part of waking up!
Another shopping note – When I was shopping a few weeks ago, I noticed a new “modern cut.” It’s used to describe bottoms including underwear. Best I can figure out is that the waist sits lower to varying degrees. It’s not always more comfortable especially when it cuts in the middle of the stomach. I realize that everyone’s body is different, and a modern cut may work better for some but to me it’s another way of using less fabric.
The end of the summer for sure – This is the last week for our corn place. It will close for the season. My last watermelon was a bit overripe. I’m starting to see root vegetables and not a lot of summer fruit. Peaches are at the end and early apples are starting to appear. Each season has it’s pluses but I will miss the simpler food bounty that summer brings (while I’m stoking up the chili!)
So how was your week?
