I'm even boring my self

I don't know what's going on...are we taking fewer adventures for me to report on? Yeah, I guess we are.
Is everything status quo here? Pretty much - Youngest gets his final clearance from the surgeon tomorrow and his life, which is becoming very teenager-ish, is pretty much back to normal.
Middle has very few classes this year, which is odd to me, but I've seen his schedule and it's pitiful and we have little to do with the planning of it.
Oldest is busy all the time, which is great, and seems resigned to live here until, as the family shrink says, he has compiled the skills to be on his own.
K has met with a variety of people in his field and much is up in the air. Presently, he is putting together a project for a client here who is on a business trip in Tokyo, so there is much odd hour emailing.
I've been doing my thing - cooking, cleaning, laundry and the like, and it's not like I'm depressed or anything but I seem to be just going through the paces.
I've made two kinds of apple crumble and am about to tackle a pie.
I suppose my days are different with K here - we go off and do things and I have less time to be introspective and bloggy.
So it feels like I've hit a lull.
I'm not going to stop blogging, but it's interesting to me that I don't really have anything sitting in draft waiting to go when I usually have quite a few posts that I'm itching to publish.

K's birthday is the 25th and I'm looking forward to discussing his gifts, but I can't...
He's been helping Paola today - her refrigerator died and she has a bunch of food she needed recipes for, so he's been emailing with her. It should be fun to hear about the meals she throws together under pressure after hearing him wonder out loud if she has access to Jack Daniels and Worcestershire sauce for the recipes he's been forwarding.

It's 10:30 and Middle just walked in the door! English was cancelled, Photography was cancelled, he's been to his sectional with his sax and has no other classes.


It's still Tuesday.

Life isn't that exciting here in Orlando either. Except in 10 minutes I'll go out on the sidewalk to watch the space shuttle go up.

And I made an AWESOME caramel pumpkin Bundt cake. Cake for breakfast....mmmmmm.

See? Even in your lull you entertain us.

Maybe you could tell us about the dancing girls in the little square. I like 'em.

everyone can have their own uniglock!
It may seem tame in Tuvalu now, but to those of who are not residents, it's still quite interesting. I know I personally do not get packages from Paris, nor do I have good luck acorns. And, since I have girls and not boys, anything your boys do is new and exciting to me.

Doesn't it seem like it should be Thursday already? It totally does over here.

Your life sounds very much like Bossy's - except substitute everything you just said for "napping".

Those guidance counselors...

Sighing right along with you...
Sarah Louise said…

much luck to Paola's fridge.

You see, the thing to remember is that there are those of us who find the minutiae of your life fascinating. As I said to Suse when she was bemoaning having nothing much to say except she had a cheese sandwich for lunch, I'm interested in what she had for lunch.

It's either a case of misery loves company or some thesis worthy indication of the connectivity blogging gives those of us whose lives are otherwise relatively solitary.

So how about some of those recipes that require Worcestershire and Jack Daniels?

"I've been doing my thing - cooking, cleaning, laundry and the like..."

There's the problem. This is not what your life has become. YOU need to get out. K can cook and boys can clean. Mom needs to go. Get in that car and drive somewhere, anywhere. Sometimes we need to shake out the cobwebs and move a bit out of our comfort zone. Besides in a month or so we will all be wrapped up in the holidays. Make a run for it while you can I say. By the way, how do they "cancel English"? Lack of interest? Nothing more to say? No one shows up? My junior is begging for someone to do that with Regents Biology at the moment.

It is that empty time that you are missing. That is when all your best ideas float to the surface. At the moment they are lurking in dark corners waiting for an opportunity.

Never underestimate the power of your writing even when you feel you have nothing to say. The most inspirational post you have ever written was the one about folding plastic bags. It spoke to me. So even things that you think are trivial – can have MEANING to other people.

Off to practise folding plastic bags. So much potential for self improvement.

OH people. I cried for K's help for a pork loin and he offered a great recipe but my dad can't have Jack Daniels OR Worcestershire sauce so I put together my own recipe and I made it with apples, onion and herbs and everybody wowed at it (see we're not used to this kind of recipes around here...). Yesterday for lunch we had 4 local grilled fishes and last night we fed 10 people: aprox 20lbs of octopus a part of which was made in a salad and the rest with cherry tomatoes, wine and hot pepper and 8 grilled fishes. See, all of this was lovingly fished/home grown (tomatoes) by Fabio and we couldn't bear to simply throw everything in the garbage. So we gathered hungry people. Simple as that. And they ALL came!
