I’m suffering from not updating my blog. It’s painful. I now have a huge list of things to write about and to experiment with.
First, I have a new housemate. Her name is Cindy. She’s from France and is working an internship at the Francis Ford Coppola winery in Northern Sonoma County. I’ll post a few pictures from our hike out at the coast we did a few weeks ago. Believe it or not, that felt like my first summer day (and it was at the beginning of August!).
I have a photo essay on building a composter for my back yard. My two friends Humberto and Martin came over shortly after I moved in and helped me build a composter (an important contribution to any household). I didn’t even have any furniture yet! But it was terribly important to have a working composter.
I have been in the middle of fixing up a room in my house so we can rent it out. By fixing up that back room and removing an overhang structure in the back yard, I have approximately 1/3 more space !!! It was both an exciting and a learning experience. So, now, I’ll be better prepared for next time.
I have a few new words for my Vocabulary and New Expressions category. I have a flashback to the seventies moment. GB jr is back from his world travels (although I’m still waiting for pics and stories!). He’s sitting on my sister’s desk in Toronto being a central part of the activities in her movie production office. Redd–send some pics!
I’m looking after Bush-Field for a few days next week while Alan’s away on business. I want to use the time to rewrite and refocus my resume. I want to plan the next chapter or two of my life (always an exciting task and something to look forward to).
I’m going to meet Lori of lbnuke.com next Friday and hopefully work out a plan to upgrade my websites and create a few more.
Other than that, I’ve planned a day on the Russian River tomorrow with a few friends for a bit of summer-water fun. I’m also volunteering for the Sonoma Odyssey of Food and Wine event on Sept 15th. I’m excited about that and I’m looking forward to the whole thing.
Now, I’ve just listed my todo list–I haven’t provided any interesting stories. I want to go to the Farmer’s Market right now. I haven’t been all summer and I want to make sure I don’t miss it. I’ll log on later and because I still have a few other sundries to write about…
At least this list is out of my head and that is a relief!
