#2 son supported the idea of male/female shopping differences yesterday when I sent him out with a grocery list. He came back with exactly the listed items. One lime, not several limes. No surprises. If I make good shopping lists, I can certainly count on him to follow through on the groceries. That’s good. He […]

The girls have gone back to their workaday lives. Yesterday, I got up and put in a couple of hours for my Aussies. they’re not making the progress I’d like, actually,  so I need to think more about them. Then we had blueberry pancakes and peppered bacon, and settled in for our business meeting. We […]

Yesterday we went to the Farmers Market and stopped by this fun shop, and also the LYS. We did lots of visiting with people as we traveled around. We stopped by the fabric shop to see whether the plain pink fabric there would be better for my quilt (no), and took #2 daughter for her […]

I never did get my divs to behave, in case you were wondering. Having looked through the textbook and all the friendly books I have on the subject, I turned to the CSS Pocket Reference, which said the following: For nonroot elements, if the element’s position value is relative or static, the containing block is […]

I had to get up with my husband at 4:30 this morning, so naturally I thought, “Here’s my chance to get my divs in order!” I’m sure you would have thought the same thing. Unfortunately, while I can float to the left and the right, the center persists in hanging out at the bottom of […]

We have six other assignments still, but the final project is due in about three weeks. we are to build a ten-page website, all in Notepad. A five-page website, with me […]

I went to the gym yesterday, and to a concert last night, just like a normal person. True, I’m up at 4:30 to finish grading papers, but still.. One of the main reasons not to skip the gym, it seems to me, is that you don’t enjoy it as much if it’s been a while […]

Last night while watching “The Big Bang Theory,” I started putting together another quilt block.  If I make enough samples with this fabric, I’ll have a quilt before I make up my mind to do something different. I’ve been reading the book Nudge. I enjoyed it quite a lot, though we have to keep in […]

Here’s our manly Fathers Day feast, with three kinds of chips and three kinds of fruit and an empty place for the hot dogs. There was an empty place because the boys didn’t, as I had imagined they would, put the grill together while I was at church. They waited till I got home and […]

So yesterday I spent a few hours working, then took #2 son to help buy a Father’s Day gift for my husband. Buying gifts for him is never a very rewarding process, because he will complain that we spent the money and criticize what we bought. We like to think that he is secretly pleased. […]
