2010 week 36
This week, I posted one (slightly-lame) post.
Then, I came down with a crazy illness (including! night sweats, a brick of snot in my head, and nonstop coughing!), and ignored the blog for the rest of the week. And you should be glad, because instead of posting projects, I probably would have told you how sorry I felt for myself (very), whether I had changed out of my pj’s (I had not), how many cups of Throat Coat Tea I’d consumed (likely close to 830 by now), or the odd times of night I’d brushed my teeth (like 3:42am. because this sickness is giving me breath so bad that I can’t help but get up in the middle of the night and brush. so odd.). And that would be not fun for anyone.
So, instead, I will tell you that I visited my computer again today, only to look out my window and see this:
Which I think means that it’s almost leaf removal season and we have yet to invest in a leaf blower. Better get on that. Any recommendations?
And, while I’m soliciting advice, I’ve almost got this fall’s Costa Rica vacation planned (so. psyched.), and any advice on places to stay on the Nicoya Peninsula would be gladly welcomed. We’ll be spending half of our trip in tree houses in the jungle (already booked!), and now I’m looking to spend the other half of our trip on or near a (not-super-touristy-close-to-turtles) beach. I found a super-awesome B&B this week, and then found out that it will be closed while we’re in CR. So, I’m still on the lookout for somewhere cool to stay.
And, one more random thought: JT got an iphone this week. It’s an electronic item that has so far stayed pretty much off my radar. In fact, I might be the only human on the planet who is sort of apathetic to them. I mean, do I really need to be that connected all the time? (Although, they are so super-duper cool and I could sit there and play the online version of scrabble with friends pretty much all day. So maybe the real question is: would I be able to walk away from being that connected all the time?).
That’s it from here… I’m headed to pick up our awesome friend, Melinda, who is coming all the way from Philly to hang out with us this weekend! Should be super-fun! Have a great weekend!
