This was quite the weekend of the sailboat. Saturday's adventures pale in comparison to Sunday's, but I want to write them down anyway. (More)

On Monday after dinner, Jon said, "How about if we go sailing?" So we packed up and headed down to the boat ramp near his work - on the Monongehela almost under the Birmingham bridge. (More)

My friend gave me an update on our mutual friend whose baby is due next week. The doctors want to induce now, a week early, "because the baby has lost weight." How do they know this? By ultrasound. Which can be wrong by a pound or more in either direction. (More)

I have discovered a fun and convenient way to water our plants. Our air conditioner drips about a gallon of water a day if we run it all afternoon. If I put our watering can under the drip, it fills it in addition to keeping water off the porch carpet. Then the next day, I have a full watering can ready and waiting to water the plants!

It's taken a long time and persistence, but I have now succeeded! Today I bought several gallons of oil, milk, and orange juice, and I did not bring a single bag home! (More)

This morning when I went downstairs, I saw one of the baby robins out of the nest on the ledge! Later when I went by all three were in the nest. I knew it wouldn't be long. Just now I checked and the nest is empty! Now they will spend two weeks learning how to be grown up robins, and after that they will be on their own.

After much disturbing of the poor robins, I have taken off the paneling over the window and have a lovely view of the nest. It is at a rather awkward angle for the camera, but I can still get some shots. (More)

In my research on robins, I found this spectacular site called A Robin's Diary with videos and day-by-day updates.

I picked a great time to take photos of our nest today - the parents had just come back from worm hunting when I got inside. (More)

It is so cool to watch things grow. Last Wednesday, May 12, I got all our pots together with new dirt and planted hot peppers, radishes, lettuce and spinach. We also have three cherry tomato plants generously donated by a friend. (More)

I can now recite in their entirety from memory:
Miss Spider's Tea Party
Dr.Seuss's ABC
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
and maybe Sandra Boynton's A to Z, though I haven't tested myself on that one yet.

Jon has me working on some stuff for Lime Daley so he has time for his other projects. For the most part, changing settings has a user-friendly interface that I can do pretty easily. However, there are some code things "in the background." (More)

While looking up information on the Pennsylvania Use Tax (which is another story for another day) I found a regulation that states that tourists in PA who stay longer than 7 days are required to pay Use Tax on items that they brought into the commonwealth and used while they were here. How enforceable is that?!?

I called my friend Alissa today and her four and a half year old son William answered. I said hi and asked for his mom and he said, "Well, she's downstairs right now, but you can talk to me and tell me what you want to say and I can tell her." It was not that long ago that he would only say, please call back. It wasn't even that much longer before that when he couldn't even answer the phone! (More)
