Tapenade's in the fridge (I forgot to get artichoke hearts so I went with a traditional tapenade -- minus the oil), black-eyed pea dip's in the fridge, kidney bean dip's in the fridge. I am melting chocolate right now into which I will dip bananas and then I'll roll them in peanuts and I will actually be DONE with the food for tonight before 4:00. This is a record. I have to shower me, but I'm still in good shape -- I don't have to leave here to pick up Mel until about 6:30.
Bruce will ride tonight -- the weather is perfect. All the rain ushered in a "cold front," so we just made it into the upper 70s today. Glorious day.
The mockingbirds love my bird feeder. They land on it, toss bunches of seed to the ground, and then grab something and fly off. Weird birds. At least the feeder is active now -- nice change.
I finished Erasing Hell and I'm not sure there's much more to say. The bottom line is that hell's real, people are going there, and we need to spread the gospel to every creature.
I am now at that wonderful spot in life where I have to pick out a new book to read. Regarding my 101 goals list, I've read four of the six Jane Austens and seven out of the ten books that were recommended to me that I said I would read. I have lots of other reading goals, but I'm the closest to finishing these--
--Okay, since I wrote that I've done the bananas, cleaned up the kitchen, and showered. And it's not even 5:00. I know some folks live this way all the time, but it's foreign territory to me. I am ALWAYS doing things at the last minute. Of course, I still have to put things in the car, put on makeup, dress -- I could still run late! :)
I've decided to read The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery. It was a recommended book, so that will get me that much closer to finishing that goal. I'm not really sure what it's about (it's a novel), but I will -- whether you want me to or not -- keep you posted. I bought this book in softcover a while back because it was cheaper than the Kindle version. I have gotten to the point where I really don't like reading "real" books anywhere near as much as I like reading on my Kindle. I will persevere, however. :)
There is a fly in my dishwasher. I would like to just run the thing, but there's no soap in it. I could run a quick cycle, then add soap, and run it again. Decisions, decisions.
Okay -- off to do something.
