Oh my the whirling house dervish got a hold of you! I am the same way, like to come home to a clean house. ED about your niece so likely you will get a surprise call somewhere along the line wanting to hook up with you at a maybe not very convenient time or location. Allthat's left to do is load up the motor home tomorrow with your stuff and then the parents. Ill bet your chompin ga the bit to get going after almost half a yearo f planning. Lots of good snik snaks at Costco today - made for a nice lunch :) Sports Warehuse for more fishing stuff. He's heading to the lower Deschutes with half son and a friend tomorrow and I'm making a nice lunch for all of them. Whilst he ws rumaging around the fishing aisles I picked up a nice andlong pair of jeans and some summer tops 1/2 price. Told Bryan it's his fault for taking so long :) You can ED Paws about the trip to Lowe's - again his fault that I bought hundreds of bulbs while waiting for him LOL

Yeah, glad they found and stopped him before he set off a string of fires 10 more miles down the road! What ratio of eating out to cooking in? When we RV, 75% eating in cuz we have the kitchen and especially in the morning when neither one of us wants to trek to a breafast place. A neighbor going to take care of mail and keep an eye on your place while you're gone? Huh, I haven't made babs in awhile - sounds good. I have a couple of petite sirloins defrosted. Scrummaging around in freezer yesterday and found those which are the oldest thing I have in there.

Good grief, 10 fires started yesterday along the highway and a cut-off road by one motor home with some kind of exhaust problem. They closed our exit so Bryan had to work the long way around to get back home from Sunriver. Motorists stopped all along the way with shovels to start tackllng them before various fire depts showed up Guess we should put a shovel in our car :) They kept a spotter plane in the air to keep track of them all. All taken care of and only 6 acres in total which isn't much but all were very near houses and the wind was gusting at 30 mph. So freaking dry here. I imagine more and more stuff is getting checked off of yours (and Mom 's :) list. Tomorrow is RV pck-up day right? Retirement checks hit the bank yesterday so did banking for us and MIL. Had to pay off the charges from all our summer fun - after that financial depression :) I needed to do some physical labor. One more area I needed to take care of so I can plant bulbs for the Spring. At one time someone had put a big oval planting area around one of the trees in the front yard which of course was totally overgrown. A few months ago we got all the grass out ad ringed it with Windsor block. I've weeded about 3 times more to get any upstarts trying to grow. Cleaned it one last time of a few weed starters and trucked the last of the good dirt we had left (about a yard or so). Lacked only one wheelbarrow to get it all filled in. Will just buy a couple of big bags of dirt. Then I can plant bulbs this fall. Cotco day today as our list of thing we alway get has grown to about 10 so wrothwhile a trip. Will visit with MIL as she is only a ew blocks from Costco. Other than that not much planned. I imagine your day is mostly going to be getting ready. WIll yoube bringing Beck's sleey pillow?

No, we didn't pick Welker, fortunately. We did pick up the rookie Cody Latimer as our last receiver pick in the 14-team league, so maybe Welker being out will kick start his playing time. Denver has so many receivers tho that I'm not too hopeful. In that league we've got Matt Ryan and Rothlesburger for our QB's, and in the other league we've got Ryan again and Andy Dalton. We would have had to use a first-round pick to get Brees, Peyton or Rodgers but we opted for running backs instead. You're so right - coming home to a clean house will be worth it! I'd be a bit annoyed at your niece, too.

I can only imagine that list of your mom's. LOL! I shouldn't laugh either tho, as I'm a list-making fool myself. It's nice that you can pick up your RV on Thursday and get it packed and ready to go for easy take-off Friday. Gotta make a grocery run myself today. I'm glad I'll have my list and not yours! =) Nice and foggy out this morning. It's all that humidity out there. I don't have to do much watering this morning at least.

Sitting him is fine with me. The only problem is that it affects the whole team, and they're already hurting on defense as it is. I don't like to see them all have to pay for his disgusting actions. Bruises on her neck. Boy. That's all I need to hear. Nice forecast indeed! Too bad you can't hold the weather gods to it! Still, with those sudden mountain storms, at least they tend to move fast instead of ruining an entire afternoon. They hit, they're gone and the sun's right back out. Mmm yum, that red sauce "stew" sounds great!! I'd want to have it at least twice!

Well, that article left absolutely no doubt, did it? Good for Harbaugh! Of course, it will no doubt take months for it all to play out. I know you're waiting with great anticipation to hear the sleeping bag story from your mom. LOL! Obviously the cold won't be a problem - just so it doesn't snow. I did water this morning, as the local weather bozos this morning said that except for the very north of the state, we had zippo chance of rain. And then around 10:30 it poured down rain here. Ah well, we did need rain. My ajuga looks horrible. Two of the original six plants I planted last year are completely gone and the other four are looking puny. I have no idea what's wrong with them, other than the soil is just too poor, despite putting in garden soil all around them. The ones I left in the ground from this spring are gone, but I still have 6 pots that I never planted and they're doing fine. I think I'll keep them in pots over the winter and try planting them next spring. I'm not hopeful tho. I have lariope (monkey grass) along the path from the street to the front door that's been there for years, so I might try to transplant some of that next year and see if it will grow where the ajuga is now instead of putting in the potted ajuga I have left. It's tough as nails, so maybe it can make it.

I don't see anything new on McDonald this morning from Harbaugh or the team. I suppose they're "waiting until all the facts are in". Dang, Giants! Won their make-up game but lost the other with, what, a walk-on run in the 10th, I think I heard. Nights in the 30's! BRR! That means the days will probably be perfect! I'd love to be there breathing in that cool, fresh air! It's so invigorating! Shorts might work for you but your folks will need to bring lots of warm stuff to wear. Like I need to tell you that. Hah!
