Instead of writing a "real" entry, I'm going to mention that since I came home from work I have : Mowed the lawn - yes is this weather, I mowed the lawn. The heatwave while it isn't broken per say, it has suffered a small hair line fracture and I decided to take advantage of it and mow the lawn for the first time in a month.
It didn't really need it need it, but with a manual mower its important to get it mowed before it does. You do not want to try to mow a lawn that actually needs mowing with a manual mower. I also watered everything, vacuumed a good portion of the downstairs, cleaned the bathroom, tidied the kitchen, walked the dog and made two tarts.
I also learned that we follow recipes for a reason and that not all of our own ideas are good ones. One of the tarts is quite nice while the other has a faint medicinal/metallic after taste. Guess which one is the equivalent of an interminable drum solo and which one is Stairway?
Oh, and I finished Harry Potter ( I did not remember a single word of the book. Not one. I know I read it, I read it the day it came out, in one sitting but I didn't remember any of it. This summer on vaca I am reading all the books again.) while I sat outside is the so-lovely-it-hurt early evening with Dogger while we watched the neighbor kid throw a football back and forth with his friend.
Oh, and I will totally have a Emmy Nominations entry. Never fear.
