Because I got up so early (for me) on saturday, it was a bit of a blur. Everyone was doing their own thing before the signing, but I took Godsons Wife to the PSU farmers market to walk around. The sister was with me, so we had a nice walk there, lots of fresh food and food related things. A bit of a drive around to get back to the hotel where we picked up the rest of the luggage and people.

Other than trying to run over a woman who didnt understand how to cross a street, and was so not connected to reality that when she stepped in front of me and I honked my horn, she didnt respond at all.

The signing had a nice turn out, saw lots of folks I knew.. met some new ones.. after we went to the convayor belt sushi nearby, and then to the airport in plenty of time for them to catch their flight without having to rush.

Came home and watered the neighbors yard and my own.

Sunday, woke with a massive headache and raw throat, this was allergy related, not plague. by the time I was feeling somewhat human, I remembered I needed to pay my Lowe's bill. Since I was going there, I also decided to get the bits for the fence replacement. Measured the pieces that I had, measured the actual length of the fence, attempted to do math, and then had to refigure yet again how many posts I needed, and how much more fence I needed. So, I got nine posts total, and two more sections of uncut fencing. And quick setting cement.. and a couple of plants..

I knew that the back of the van was only good for 6 ft of length, so I took rope (small gauge) and an assortment of bungee cords. Strategic loading, tying off and of course, the use of the dry cement as a top weight, and away I went. Made it home without incident. Then I took my time unloading and stacking in the driveway, plus I got a bin with lid to put the cement in, because I didnt want it to get wet. Not going to start the project til later in the week, I have to get the paint out and paint the posts purple first, I am not going to get up on a ladder to do that. Work smarter, not harder. And I will see if this plan actually works or not.

Today, phone calls, see my Naturopath, then a booksigning at the Hawthorne Powells.

Off topic, why do you get B12 shots instead of pills?

Yay! I used balloon purple as trim on my bedroom when I was sixteen, with turquoise walls.

It was fun at the time, but not so fun painting it out when I got older.

If I ever own my own home (hollow laughter) I want Mediterranean blue for my trim.
