Ready 2 roll

Last night, we finally got a reprieve from the oppressive heat that decided to come visiting to our fair city.

I started my vacation yesterday at 2:00 p.m., and I’m ready to move tomorrow morning.

I should be back online next week, but I will still be posting sporadically.

We have an illness in the family; my daughter-in-law’s Dad is very ill.

So, after my move, I will be helping out my son next week.

Take care, everyone, and be well.

See you in August

I’m just too busy.

Be well!

The countdown continues, Seattle heat…

Vacation is in 9 days, and I move in 10 days.

I’m cleaning, a bit at a time.

And right now I’m trying to stay cool, as it is 87 degrees in Seattle.

It will be a bit cooler tomorrow and Thursday, then I guess the heat returns on Friday.

Now, I’m off to visit some of your blogs, hopefully commenting during my visits.

UPDATE: Sorry, dear bloggers. I’m off to wash walls.

C-ya.

back in my shell

To deal with the fun and stress of moving.

I know, I’ve said this before.

Later, dudes.

And my name is Beth, a.k.a Gran!

Jumping jelly beans.

I’m moving in 19 days.

Don’t get me wrong; I’m happier than a nun in church to be moving.

You all know that, right?

But I have lots to do.

Later.

Which cookbook should I buy?

I have not had my own full kitchen for about five years.

And I was not in the mood to cook when I did have my own kitchen.

I had too many other responsibilities, so I ate out a lot.

Now, as I once again acquire pots, pans, and cooking utensils, I’m thinking about what I’m going to cook in my brand new kitchen.

But I need a cookbook.

One good cookbook, nothing fancy, for wholesome plain (American) food.

What cookbook should I buy?

What cookbook do you use?

All ideas welcome, and I will announce which cookbook I end up purchasing.

I’m actually considering one of The Barefoot Contessa cookbooks–I love her show on The Food Network.

But I’m willing to consider anything!

Sunday morning


It’s a lot cooler this morning, and it’s raining.

I can hear thunder rumbling to the south of us, and we may get a storm soon.

After putting myself in the eye of a cleaning storm yesterday, I’m not really up to any more cleaning today.

I have two more weekends to finish cleaning, and it will go quickly now that those two sets of venetian blinds are sparkling clean.

Unfortunately, I can’t comment on any Blogger blogs right now; I keep getting an error message.

So I’m listening to A Prairie Home Companion on the radio (actually, on cable television radio) and having fun on my computer.

I will keep trying to comment on blogs.

But other than doing my laundry, I’m going to take life a little easier today.

Quantum of Solace – Official Trailer

Until Daniel Craig came along to play 007, I thought that Sean Connery was the one true James Bond.

I like Daniel Craig.

And I feel sorry for the poor bastards who play villains in movies; they only get a few minutes on camera, and get the shit beat out of them.

Oh well, everyone has to work at something.

Cleaning blinds

For the next three weekends, I will be cleaning my current small apartment.

When I move out on August 1, I will turn in my keys and shut the door after the movers get everything loaded into their truck.

I put in a solid 4 hours of cleaning today, so now I’m going to relax and start again tomorrow.

It’s a beautiful day in Seattle, a lovely eight degrees or so, lots of sun and a lovely breeze.

I hope it’s nice where you are today.

The Bangles Walk Like An Egyptian

I know I’m tired when I want to listen to the Bangles!

Bit I love this song.

Happy weekend!
