Still haven't started on the dishes. We made an unscheduled trip into town instead. Skywise is on the way to work and I need to get prone for a while -- my ankles hurt worse than my knees. -- before I start anything.
Oh, and the landline is down. Skywise thinks that it is the "main" phone that's causing the problem.

My ankles feel somewhat better so I'm making headway through the dishes. I'm taking a break at the moment while a couple of pans are soaking.

Mercury Retrograde had more fun with our internet tonight. We've been offline more than on. Oh well, we saved megabytes and gigabytes tonight. I worked on the purse I'm making which is more along the lines of a messenger bag in size but it's the same size as what I'm currently using but once I'm done with the insides, it will hold more and everything "should" be easier to find! I'm going to fasten the "liner" in with velcro so that when the outside gets dirty, I can take the liner out and throw the rest in the washer and when the outside wears out, I can replace it.
I'm going to decorate the outside with various "superhero" patches representing my geeky inclinations.

Dinner is on and I'm pretty sure that Skywise is on his way home. The landline is still down but the phone rang at the right time so I'm assuming it was him.

It was Skywise.
I couldn't hear him and he couldn't hear me. I won't be surprised if we go phone shopping tomorrow. Consequently, I'm heading out.


Everyone sleep well and be safe. Smiley Smiley

Morning.
I'm hoping to get some odds and ends done today.
The landline is still down so it should be peaceful and quiet today.
My ankles are better although my knees are still complaining.
And...... the tea is almost ready.

I did get some odds and ends done. Did more work on my new purse -- it is slow going since I'm "designing" it as I go along -- printed out some study materials that I want available to read while I'm off the computer and I'm currently running a small "eclipse-related" test.
The landline is still unusable as a phone. The computer hookup seems to be working okay. The phone as been acting weird for some months. I wonder if it has been going out for a while and that was the cause of the "weirdness"...

I transcribed more study materials from a book to a word document tonight. I'm going to have to scan some images from the book for the document but fortunately, I have a scanner and there aren't too many of them. I've got another document to print once I get more ink for the printer.

I was amused a couple of days ago by a friend on facebook -- who has never met me -- who didn't believe it when I said that I'd be applying for Medicare next month. I told her that I didn't believe it most of the time either! She said she thought I was in my 30's and I told her she was about 30 years off. I'm not sure that she's convinced....  Smiley

Skywise says I don't act like a "60-something" and he should know since he works with a few of them. I don't think about "acting my age" and I've never said to myself "I'm X years old now so I have to stop doing (fill in the blank) because I'm too old." The only thing that tells me that I can't do something is my knees. Some days, they hurt like I'm a 100 Smiley and that bothers the hell out of me! My mom was splitting wood with a sledge hammer and wedge when she was my age. She never got "old", she just got sick.  Cry

Afternoon.
We're back from Greenwood. No luck finding a phone at Meijer but we DID find iHop At Home syrup which hasn't been available in town for years. We got two bottles. As far as "phone" goes, we'll check out the office supply stores before we order a phone online. I want to look at what I'm buying if at all possible.
Now I'm going to get caught up before being useful.

Back.
Moonie and I have been discussing the menu for my birthday since we won't be able to go out. I need to find a recipe for a chicken marinade that Spirit will like since the menu calls for her to have grilled boneless chicken (since the Birthday Girl -- me -- doesn't want to spend hours cooking) and she's never had that at home before. So the search will be on.

In other news: most of the yard is bone dry and cracking since it hasn't really rained in weeks but..... there is standing water in Sinister Bog. This means that pumping out the septic tank didn't fix the problem like it did three years ago. This means that the torrential downpours we've had since the drought broke a few years ago have washed away the dirt over the septic field -- the field is sloped on one side -- and we're going to have to replace the dirt and fix it so it doesn't wash away. I have an idea that isn't cheap and IS labor intensive but what are ya gonna do?

Well, I've managed to cut my hand -- twice -- on a flashlight. Fortunately, the bleeding has stopped and one of the slices has closed up like a paper cut.

It finally rained for about five minutes.
The Queen has been in my lap for nearly 45 minutes now and over an hour earlier. Now I'm going to have to move her so I can get SOMETHING DONE. Like dinner prep.

As soon as I typed that, she got up. I wonder if she can read.... or is telepathic...

The main phone on our landline is working or at least, we have a dial tone. We haven't done anything, same phone and all, so the only conclusion that I can come to is that Mercury Retrograde decided to cut us a break.....

Skywise and I were out looking for meteors but the moon is too bright. Oh well, there's always next year. Anyway, I'm a bit chilled and my neck is tired so I'm heading out.

Everyone sleep well and be safe. Smiley Smiley

Ordered Moonie a new camera case. The zipper on hers is broken and it's only a matter of time before the camera falls out since it tends to hang upside down when she's wearing it using the shoulder strap.
