Day 489

Sunday | June 30th, 2013


Our first big tomatoes from the high garden!

I only ate, watched crap while I ate, and worked on writing (for this blog) when I wasn’t eating. It was a good day, a hot day, a sticky day in my chair. An itchy day without washing my hair.

The dogs had a bath while I sleept the afternoon away. I fiddled with TOEIC but never jumped fully into the files while Meow slept in the evening.

I forgot to eat dinner and probably a lot of other things too. I crossed things off of my ‘to do’ board and that’s enough to make today great.

Tomorrow I need to go in to work to sort and prep the computer lab as the (agreed upon) 10 days of simulated testing are set to begin on Tuesday.

When we had the bathroom done, we wanted to design our own window for the part of the wall which straddles the storage space along the side of the house. This way we could have clean airflow through
