Feels like the first time

I haven't written a first post anywhere in a couple of years. It feels odd. I'm just testing the waters here to see if I like it better than LJ.

Plans for the day include shopping at the farmers market and getting the spring replaced on our garage door. I'm hoping to find seedlings at the first event, and am glad to let a professional take care of the second.

I have a floor covered with framed photos. I'm trying to find an arrangement that pleases me before I mount them on the wall. I mentioned this to my mom last week and now she's worried about all the glass on the floor. I assured her that they are laid out in the "library" (formal living room rechristened by the kids) and that we don't walk through this room much.

Books Read in 2011

I'm starting my list a little late this year. If you're interested, you can see my list of books read in 2010, Last year I read mostly fluff, which I enjoy tremendously. I don't know that this year will be any different.

Get bent

Our mailbox has an invisible target painted on it. Within a year or two of moving in, someone had run into it, crushing the door so that it wouldn't open or close. We replaced it. Less than a year later, some repairmen were working on our neighbor's house across the street. They had a big truck with them which they proceeded to back into our mailbox, bending the post and crushing the box.

I took them to task and they replaced the box, but the post was still bent. A few years ago, we got tired of looking at it, and replaced the entire setup with a new post and a new box. Was that before or after someone set off a string of firecrackers inside our mailbox? I can't remember anymore.

Anyway, not long after that, someone went joyriding down the block, hitting all the mailboxes they could reach with a baseball bat. They bent the side of our mailbox and the post was left once again at a slight angle, but it still worked with a little effort, so we kept using it.

We came home in the wee hours of the new year to find our mailbox looking more tipsy than any reveler about town. Someone had hit it low enough that the box wasn't crushed, but the pole was listing wildly and the door wouldn't stay shut.

Scott dug it up today, used a sledgehammer to straighten the support pole, and reset it. It looks almost normal again.

We used to think that some of our neighbors were just indulging a fancy for making solid brick monuments to house their mailboxes. Now we know better.

Simple lemon poll

Last week I was the lucky recipient of a bag of lemons. I love lemons, but I can't eat them too often or my teeth hurt.

Why, yes, I do speak from experience! :-)

I was talking with one of my friends the other day and mentioned my love of lemons. She said that she eats lemons too. We compared our preferences and discovered that we did not eat them the same way.

Thus the poll:


[Poll #1379917]


I made lemon meltaway cookies last week, and they were a hit. I've eaten a couple raw and enjoyed every bit of juice and pulp. The problem is that I still have a bag of lemons left. I'll probably make a pie with some of my bounty, but that will only make a dent in the mass.

Would any of you like to share your favorite lemon recipe?

Dyson animal!

We just got home with the new vacuum. It went together very easily and spouse and DS2 are field testing it on various carpets and hard surfaces now. I think I should let them experiment to their hearts' content, don't you?

It's purple! It swivels! It's very light!

Only down side so far is that the cord only reaches far enough to do one room at a time.

I need a gardening icon!

I have the gardening bug. I have a small raised bed filled with good soil and compost. This produced some excellent lettuce, peppers, tomatoes and basil last year.

The weather just took a turn for the beautiful here in Sacramento, and I started getting antsy about getting something in the ground. Or at least getting something planted.

I had read recently about growing potatoes in containers, and decided that I would experiment a little this year. I had a well-drained bucket, some potting soil, and potatoes that were so eager to grow that they were sprouting in the kitchen.

I headed out, armed with my camera, ready to document the great potato planting of 2009.

It is extremely difficult to photograph a matte black bucket without having everything around it overexposed. I must have taken a hundred pictures, trying two different lenses and every setting adjustment I could find on my Nikon, even giving it a go with my Cybershot, before I gave up in disgust.

Time was running out and there was planting to do!

I planted the potatoes in shallow soil in the container and set it in the garage to sprout. I'll check it every day or two to see how it's doing.

All that frustration needed some outlet, so I headed out to my raised bed to clear the palm fronds that were keeping the weeds down and to turn the soil in preparation for planting.

I had a little compost from my first attempt at a pile last year, so I added that in as well, then tromped into the house to grab the Mortgage Lifter tomato plant I'd found at the hardware store and the pepper plants I had bought at the same time. These are in the ground and ready to go.

I've only grown Mortgage Lifter tomatoes once. I bought the plant at my local farmers market, but didn't have a garden to put it in at the time. I cleared a little space in the yard and stuck it in the ground without any further prep. Strangely enough, it produced, and I loved the texture and the flavor of its tomatoes. I hadn't seen any seeds or plants around since then, so when I saw it at the store I nabbed one and plopped it right in my cart. I'm eager to see how it does in better soil.

All this to say, don't expect photo updates on my potatoes until I plant some in less photographically challenging containers.

Movie trivia help?

So, Lexi has a snippet of a movie stuck in her head and she can't remember where it's from. She doesn't know anything about the film except that there's a scene where some characters go into a place like an art gallery, but instead of paintings, there are photographs of people's butts, each bearing a picture of a country's flag. She thinks these were the flags of the countries of origin for each subject.

Does this ring a bell with any of you? She's asked everyone she knows, tried finding it online, and I've even phoned my movie guru friend, all to no avail. Any ideas?

Recommend a book meme

Borrowed from [livejournal.com profile] buffra.

Very simple - just recommend a book to me. Based on what you know about me from real life, or my LJ posts or interests, suggest a book that you think I'd like, appreciate or just generally benefit from reading.

Then post this in your own LJ, so people can recommend books to you too.

Puzzle of the day

Can we fit a full-sized car, three motorcycles, and a smart car in a (cluttered) two-car garage?

Taking on this challenge tonight were Scott and Chris. The Avalon was parked on the side previously reserved for the Taurus. I guess that officially demotes it to "old car" status even thought it won't be paid off for another four months.

The Maxim, which is currently a project bike, is against the opposite wall, and Chris' V-Strom is nestled next to it. There is a space for John's Boulevard, but he's still at class.

It's a tight fit length-wise since Chris' bike is nearly as long as the smartfortwo, but if you put the smart in neutral and pull it (easily a one-person job) within a couple inches of the bike, then everything should fit.

I'm not taking a picture tonight. John hasn't arrived back to complete the puzzle and I've already settled in for the evening. I may try for one tomorrow. If everything does really fit.

Oh, wait. I just heard John's bike. Maybe I'll get my shoes on after all.

This is a photo taken while we were rehearsing for our concert at Disney Concert Hall. The sad thing is that this photo, while taken with my camera, was not taken by me.

(no subject)

Does anyone else keep getting logged off of LJ? I've had to log in many times in the past weeks, each time ticking the little box asking the site to remember me.

Perhaps the site does not find me memorable.

Anyway, my apologies if I've missed significant posts. Sometimes I don't notice right away.

Today I went to see The Color Purple, the musical. It was a touring company at the Sacramento Community Center Theater. What a fabulous show! My first introduction to this story was the movie, which led, as these things do with me, to the purchase of the book, which has been read multiple times.

There is such power and beauty in this tale. So many times the audience broke into applause, not just after musical numbers, but frequently in response to a bit of dialog or an action that demonstrated a fundamental change in a character. It was a lively crowd - I love that feeling!

Since arriving home, I've been caught up in the Firefly marathon that S and C have had going since yesterday. Normally this would be no problem, but I'm WAY behind in my NaNoWriMo word count and just can't tear myself away from the television when Firefly is playing.

When one episode ends, the person with the remote is in charge of navigating to the next episode. A couple of times the remote had been set down on the counter. C told S that since S was nearest the remote, he technically was considered in possession of it.

Yeah. Because with remote controls, proximity is 9/10ths of the law.

Run to feed the hungry

I've registered to participate in the 15th Annual Sacramento Food Bank & Family
Services Run To Feed The Hungry this Thanksgiving. The "fun run" (or walk in my case) benefits Sacramento Food Bank and Family Services. If this is a cause you would like to support, or if you would like more information about it, my fundraising page is here.

Done!

I was the last in my family to vote today. I'm so proud of my boys! :-)

Everything went really smoothly. I didn't have to wait at all, but I wonder how much of a wait folks who have to vote after 5 will face.
