April Fool's

I played a great joke on Cathy here at the office today. She asked if I was done with my marketing research report and I said, "No". She looked like she was about to blow a gasket, but then I yelled, "April Fool's!".

I love zinging people here at the office.

Reading This Book Makes Me Hungry

I have been reading cookbooks lately. Novels were becoming a little too jolting for me. So, I have been reading a lot of cookbooks. It's so much fun.
Sometimes I pretend that I'm a world class chef preparing for a big dinner party.
Today I am reading a book about sweets. I probably should have consulted my dentist first.

Thanks to Tommy for showing me how to do a "link". I feel like a technician.

Thanks, Elaine.

That kid down the block can really skim a pool. I only counted 2 leaves in the whole thing. There might have been a third one, but I really had to get caught up on laundry.

I have a feeling that a certain neighbor (Elaine) might be responsible for being so, well, resopnsible. I bet bribing Tommy with cake didn't hurt either.

Seriously, good job on the pool guys.

Jeff is leaving tonight for vacation - for a whole week! Gosh, what I wouldn't do with a week's vacation. I'd finally be able to finish knitting my decorative "extra" toilet paper holders, and catch up on my programs.

I'm writing myself a reminder here that I need to bring in Jeff's mail starting tomorrow, and also make sure that Tommy kid down the street skims his pool everday.

Early bird.

I've been asked to come into the office at 6:00 a.m. on Monday. That's really very early, even though I do regularly get up at 5:00 a.m. to get a jump start on the day.

I wonder why I need to come in so early? And also, how will I get into the building?

I'd better check on that. I just wrote a post-it note: Do I need a key?

I ordered some silverware from Macy' on Thursday. It arrived this morning and was packaged very well. I like on-line shopping, the only downside is having to dispose of the packaging materials - it's annoying to have to crush the boxes for recycling.

Another quarter.

I found another quarter in a pair of shorts I haven't worn since mid-August. I need to start taking some time out once a week or so to make sure loose change makes it to the "Alaskan Cruise Fund" jar.

I've left myself a note that says "Jeff, look for change, thanks". This weekend's Big Chore will be this change situation.
