Things on my mind this morning


June 1, 2008

My son somehow grew two inches when I wasn’t looking

Obama is going to be the Democratic Nominee for President

I will be in New York in two weeks

I have to make 50 hamburgers this morning

You can never be too kind

I may never learn to speak proper German

I am in a blog-slump

I need a haircut

German’s litter

You know, they do. I am always surprised by how much. I was at a small street fair in a smallish twon last night and as I walked over the crunching broken beer bottles, I was amazed and annoyed. As we walked down the street and I passed the Tetra paks bumping in the wind, I was also surprised and annoyed. I often don't realize how bad this is because the towns are actually quite good at cleaning up the mess (as is NYC) and I think the proportion that litter is a bit less (because in many cities there are more garbage bins and so the lazy have to make very little effort).

I've missed blogging and missed hearing what you and others have been doing. I am in a slump as well, but even the lists of random thoughts are interesting.
I think most Canadians want Obama to win: I've never EVER followed American politics as closely as I have lately. I am definitely hopeful abouit Obama. What do you think?
In NY in two weeks...for the summer? With HH? Stay well.

How log will you be in New York.

Blog slumps? Snap out of it! I enjoy reading you. :-)


I need a better haircut

I have some of the same things on my mind: blog slump (yes, I'm blogging, but not anything of much depth or substance), Obama-love (YES!), and in need of a haircut. OK, I just had my hair trimmed, but I'd like to just have it washed so I could get a scalp massage!

Hey, while you're in New York you should drop by Seattle and come say HI! Aw c'mon -- what's a few thousand miles?! :-)

G ... It was one of the biggest surprises I had upon moving here - I always thought the Germans were a tidy lot. Not!

Cathy ... Good to hear from you - Don't stay away so long.

J ... Yes, it's going to happen and he may go all the way.

DCB ...I can't wait!

Diane ... Thank you - really. It's good to know that you enjoy stopping in here for a read now and then. I appreciate it!

Carol ... Seattle? I don't think I'll be making it any time soon. But thanks for the invite. I'll have to be dragged kicking and screaming out of the woods when it's time to go home.

I have a Liberty NYblog--I've had difficulty keeping it up during the winter, and almost gave up on it. but hopefully I'll get it together. I want to post pics of the whole Catskill region though, and Ellenville Ice Caves etc..

You may eventually speak proper German but that will never stop people from asking you where you're from so enjoy the brokenness of your language. I still can't get over the rudeness of the question 'where you from?' ... especially when people ask my German husband (whose American childhood gives him an 'accent') and disbelieve his response.

Yeah, you look like a hippie--get a haircut!

ps The farmer's market was good, even though this early there weren't a lot of fruit stands. I got some nice herbs and salad greens. I love that the same couple sell lemonade every year. You'd also like the Liberty Farm market across the street from the Ace Trading Post--it's on the way to Loch Sheldrake.
