Monday Ramblings


It’s been 95-108 here during the day. There is not enough money in the world to get me to turn my oven on. I think we have had sandwiches and raw veggies for dinner nearly every night, except when we had taquitos cooked in the microwave.




The living room is a mess. It’s always a mess. I could sweep 3x a day and there would still be stuff to sweep up. The kids are in and out of it all day long so it hardly seems worth the effort to clean it until they go back to school.




I got a Kindle for my birthday!!!! I bought Tony Bourdain’s latest book, Murder Most Royal by Jean Plaidy and Terry Pratchett’s The Last Continent. So far I have read Plaidy & am about a third of the way through Pratchett.





Actually it is a phrase – gnomic utterances. They are saying that are mysterious and often incomprehensible yet seemingly wise.  I can think of a couple people I can apply this to, we’ll have to see how the week shapes up


The last few weeks have been rather disjointed for me, with all the coming & goings that we have had. I’m hoping things settle down now for the next 3 weeks until school starts again & I can get back into my regular routine.

Glad to hear you took my taquitos idea!

These past few weeks have been SO disjointed. I don't know what's wrong but I'm glad it's not just me, yo.

Hope it cools down for ya - supposed to here - less humidity finally. Couldn't take much more. Awesome on the Kindle!

I don't feel like switching the oven on either (and it's not hot here!). Microwave ovens are so wonderful... so is left-over take-away pizza from the freezer...
These Kindles etc sound interesting, but I love the "feel" of a Real Book! I have similar problems with mess - so does just about every mum in the whole world... so we can forgive you for feeling like you might leave it a while before you sweep up again (and again...)!
Hope you're all enjoying your long break from school. Ours has just started. 5 1/2 more weeks... hopefully it'll quieten down after these first two busy weeks... we're off to the seaside soon, for a week. I'm looking forward to that.
Must go. Has the postman brought you a parcel yet?

oooooooooooh, please post about your take on the Kindle. I really wonder if it gives you the same experience as reading a physical book. Do you enjoy the read, even without the tactile experience?
