I just went out on my terrace to clean the table and chairs. I decided to wipe first before adding any water and instantly discovered that the 'dirt' was just dust. A ton of it. Once I got the dust off the table and chairs looked clean as could be.

We need rain. Yes, this is Seattle and we need rain. Normally we don't get much in August but this year we haven't gotten any. Driest August ever in weather history.

Why in the world can't some scientist invent something to equal us all out? We can take some of Issac and trade our dry for it. If they can put a man on the moon...

Today I am watching the baseball game - love matinees on the east coast or, in this case, Minnesota. The timing is so nice.

While I'm watching the game, I'm uploading a shit load of images from one web hosting service to another. It's slow going but there is also no hurry. If I try to bite off a giant piece and copy, it chokes so I have to do it in 10-15 minute increments. A perfect chore for ballgame watching

I spent some time this morning cleaning out and organizing the fridge and freezer. Chef Anita comes next Tuesday plus I want to get smart about what I buy when so I want to make sure what I've got it embedded in my brain.

This morning when I woke up it was chilly! Not cold but snuggle under the covers chilly. Heaven. It's supposed to warm up a bit but I'm pretty sure we're looking at the ass side of Summer. Yeah!!

Tonight is a Seahawks game at the stadium across the street. I made a quick trip to the bank this morning and it was already getting a little congested between the normal hot dog/junk food sellers and the ticket scalpers added on top of the building construction and the end of summer road work. None of the pools open early enough for me to get there and through all the traffic home with any kind of efficiency. So I gave the car the rest of the day off.
