This summer just *FLEW* by, didn’t it? Seems like school just ended.
Well, it’s started again. Maribou and I are back on our staggered schedule after a summer of being on the same one. (So I come home and the cats run to the door and look around my ankles for the nice one.)
The State Fair’s last weekend looms before us… and we haven’t yet decided if we’re going to run down there on Sunday.
On the one hand, we could do the usual (annual!) thing of grilled corn, sandwiches dipped in batter then deep fried, and ice cream cones to top everything off. Paying five bucks for lemonade and finding the candy stall guy who sells cartons of candy cigarettes. Driving home while Maribou falls asleep and getting home and passing out. On the other hand, there is the whole “stay home” option. I don’t have a whole lot of vivid imagery for that one but, trust me, it has just as much of a siren’s call.
Prior to that decision, though, we have: The Usual. Friday night devoted to sorting and starting the laundry, Saturday to finishing the laundry and hitting Costco, PetSmart, and King Soopers, and Saturday night is going to be devoted to a new session of Fifth Edition (I’m going to play an assassin for the first time!). Sunday? Well, I’ll keep you posted.
And then Monday will be devoted to loafing. Mmmmmmmmmmmm.
So… what’s on your docket?
