Productive Saturday!

Blue skies and clouds, breezes blowing in the occasional storm... But we had enough time this morning to do some garage shiftings and shufflings. Charlie does the heavy work, of course, and I do whatever driving comes into it. His motivation today is to create a space in his garage to set up a weight-lifting bench. He and his housemates checked out a local workout joint, and decided it offered too little for the costs, so they'll set up their own. It's going to take a while, and cost a few...

Planting in fertile grounds

Good morning, on a sunny day with temps going to the 70s predicted, and also possible thunderstorms. I love a good thunderstorm, but so often they bring devastatingly large hailstones around here. So when we designed the garden boxes last summer, we put hail-shields--hardware cloth--over them. I planted the spinach and squash starts out there yesterday, and covered them over with these shields. On the back porch, I cover over the plants with wire mesh baskets so the rain comes through, but the... Sign in to see full entry.

Thursday adventures

The sore arm is much better today, and my head is less sleepy, so it's on to better things. This morning at 8:30 I'll be on a zoom meeting with ~60 5th graders talking about 'being an author.' This came out of my giving a teacher friend of mine a stack of my SERPENT AND SAINT books for her class. That's 25 of the 60 students. This is a program they have going during these pandemic times, blending classrooms for special events. It will only be half an hour, maybe a bit more, and I expect after...

PS--About those shots...

As it happens, the right arm where the shingles shot went in is the one that's sore today. The tetanus arm is fine, no tenderness at all! Expecting the reverse, I chose the order of the arms. Well, it isn't crippling, just annoying, and it will soon pass! Temps are heading back up today, and way up tomorrow. I'm thinking this afternoon will be time to put the garden outside again, and reclaim my table! Goldiec knows the joy of getting the table back, and having a real spring day. Happy...

Check up time!

Here it is evening again, after a day of busy-ness. It started with a doctor appointment for myself, not Embers this time. I met my new primary doc and we spent some time getting acquainted. She looked over my records, and answered questions about current concerns. It's a new facility with shiny technologies. For instance, there's no scale to stand on: the chair has the scale built in! And it weighed me very close to what my home scale says. That's a first! Usually, doctor-scales add 10 lbs!... Sign in to see full entry.

Dramas dark and deep and long...

It's a return of spring today, warm and sunny, and the plants are again on the back porch. It's another return, too. This evening will bring the first live theater we've attended since all this pandemic moved in and changed our lives. MEDEA is being presented by the theater students of the U of Colorado Colorado Springs. This is Charlie's alma mater and promises to be a beautiful offering, directed by Kevin Landis. He is the prof responsible for bringing some of the finest theater and... Sign in to see full entry.

After the Dance Is Over...

The Oddities Expo was over at 4 yesterday afternoon, and we were packed and loaded up by 4:30. That is a mastery of the quick and easy in/out of vendor events! By the end of two or three days, that's the greatest thing, to not spend another hour or more packing stuff and hauling it out to one's vehicle. All hail simplicity! We picked up Chinese food on the way home, to celebrate and begin recovery from Charlie's best show ever, so far! We ate while watching another episode of AMERICAN GODS--a...

May Day and The Day After

Yesterday was bright and hot, mid-80sF, and all the while Charlie and I were indoors at the Oddities & Bizzarre Expo. Maybe the fine weather had something to do with it, maybe so many now-vaccinated people getting out, maybe have a bit of extra to spend after months of staying home and not spending... Anyway, Charlie had his best day of event business ever! All the regular Wasteland Bears found new best friends, and the grand piece on the table, a weird papier-mache skull he made just this week...

The weekend is upon us!

Charlie got a call on Monday from the organizer of the Oddities and Bizzarities Expo which we attended as vendors a couple of years ago. He didn't apply this year for a variety of reasons, but she wanted to fill a table that someone else had cancelled on for this weekend's event. She offered him a deal on the space cost. He asked a few questions about pandemic precautions, and decided to do it. He set up his basic display on Thursday though the show opens tomorrow morning. Then he went home and...
