I should have posted this last night, but after making dinner and finally getting around to eating it, I watched a movie with David, then went to bed. I did wash all dinner dishes and make sure the kitchen counter was clean and clear for breakfast in the morning.
√ took the dog out, made breakfast and took D to the train at 6:23, drove home and took a nap until a more reasonable hour,
√ Call Jet Blue about Talis's missing luggage, twice (am and pm, just to make sure it got to her),
√ empty flip tote from Balticon (had to wait for box of 16mm film (6 or 7 reels, very heavy) to be collected before I could reach flip tote), re-purposed flip tote to hold Talis art supplies,
√ clean upstairs main bathroom top to bottom,
√ call Marcia C for recommendation of person to trim/take down some trees in yard,
√ call Ryan Wood, said recommended tree person, left message, played phone tag, finally reached at 16:40, arranged for consult/estimate at 17:30 Wednesday,
√ called financial advisor for money for NBTSC, waiting to hear back,
√ winter boots into clear flip tote, took them to attic for storage,
√ spare pillows into bag and into attic for storage,
√ several walks in the afternoon with Winnie, after he spent the entire morning refusing to come downstairs (moping about missing Talis is my best guess),
√ printed out Interfilk paperwork for this weekends' IF auction (still need to cut),
√ designed and printed out paperwork for silent auction for some of Badger's books,
√ picked D up from the train station,
√ verified with neighbor which tree branches he had issues with hanging over his fence... [this man just does not get being green... he is more concerned with not having to deal with acorns making noise on his porch roof, pine needles in his pool, leaves; almost as bad (but in a different way) as the OCD lawn slave who used to live on the other side of us (but who finally sold his house 2? years ago). He also complained to S over Memorial Day weekend about the bees... I think that is dealt with sufficiently that he won;t go complain to the town],
√ ordered lobsters for this weekends Neptune's Catch,
√ made appointment with man from Explosion cleaners for Tuesday morning,
√ mowed front lawn before the rain came down,
√ got soaked by rain downpour while out on walk with Winnie, who met some friends down the street,
√ emptied dishwasher,
√ made dinner,
√ watched a movie from T's netflix cue (Spork, for the curious)
√ went to bed.
I am *thrilled* that the EPA seems to have won a major court victory
. Thanks, filkertom
for the news.
As of this morning, Talis's baggage seems to still be en route, as she will be at St. Bart's later today, and Imogene at the Broadreach office in Raleigh says I will be getting a call from one of the Caribbean program director's once he has gotten it into her hands. She said they outfitted her with a sleeping bag, towels, and a few extra t-shirts from their stash before her boat left St. Maarten on Monday. I am sure she will come thru this with aplomb, if not also some aggravation. I haven't heard from her since Monday, as they took her SIM Tuesday morning.
And now, off to yet another day of productivity. First priority is getting ready for house guests and ConCertino, next is getting to the larger projects that had been put off and put off because of work.
