I Like Thursday: Heading Towards Normal

Another week gone?  Good grief!  Time to join LeeAnna's I Like Thursday group.

My first like is that I've squeezed in enough time to write other posts than this one this week.  Did you see my nifty little tablet cover

The kitchen floor's last coat should be cured enough this weekend to start testing what we want for a kitchen table.  I've even gotten used to the open expanse.  I've been loving the kitchen.  Yay!

A Few Fun Things From Chick Weekend

Chick Weekend was a short, small affair this year.  A few of the fun highlights:  

This dog was so unbelievably happy - he'd run out after the ball, bring it back to his humans, then roll around in the sand.  He was beside himself with joy.  Then he saw a seal pop up in the water - he'd run out full tilt into the water as if he was saying, "come play with me!!!"  The seal would watch him, then go:  hell no.  Dog would be all confused - where did my friend disappear to?  This went on a few times.  I'm pretty sure the dog thought the seal was another dog.

Tablet Cover

I inherited a 10-inch tablet and proceeded to spend way too much time getting it up and running.  Not knowing the pass code, I did a factory reset then thought I had bricked it because it refused the account (until I realized I was using the wrong Google account).  But yay, it's working now.  

I mostly wanted it for an occasional e-reader and to use for some online recipes so I don't worry about spilling flour all over my laptop's keyboard.  I needed a cover to keep it clean and projected an room for the charging cord.

I Like Thursday: Summer Comes to an End

Not only is it September, it seems October is just around the corner.  But I am enjoying the cooler weather (and finally some rain).

The one basil plant I bought this year turned into an amazing bush.  I harvested it last week - took me 40 minutes to pick off all the leaves.  I ended up with this pile.  I froze enough to fill two quart bags (not packed), make pesto and dried a bunch for my spice jar.  Nice!  The whole freezer still smells of basil.

I Like Thursday: Small Things

I'm juggling too many things at the moment and spread a little thin.  But I didn't want to miss a a second I Like Thursday.  So here's a few small likes.

I harvested an eggplant.  But would you look at the size of it?  The tomatoes dwarf it!  The plants are blooming like crazy right now - do you think I'll get another eggplant by the end of the season?
