Final countdown to my mom's arrival:

     On Wednesday there was an open house at the building that used to be the St Paul Woolworth's. I went with Dawn and it was great to hear her and Lenore's memories of that place from decades past. They handed out popcorn and root beer by the old counter, and there was an ancient menu on the wall from when banana splits were only 25 cents!

     Between moving and vacation I've been pretty Farmers-market deprived this summer, so it was a treat to get out there Thursday and grab brussels sprouts and beets.

     I keep making delightful discoveries in my new place, particularly the kitchen. Like the fact that the sink head converts into a spray hose. One outlet there has USB ports for charging a cell phone or the like and having it at hand in the kitchen. The microwave 'chirps' at intervals to remind me I haven't taken my food out yet. The bathroom light switch has an LED built into it so it can be found when blundering to the bathroom in the middle of the night. And one of the bins in the fridge can actually be slid from side to side in order to have more flexibility with arranging items.

     Despite being very busy, I'm glad I was able to finally get on the exercise bike again, though I had to divide my movie over two nights. And those two nights already tied my wretched mileage for July, ha ha.

     Very happy to get pass 6 work on my second Geren book to the 50% mark, since I know I won't be making much progress once my mom arrives...

Do you watch your movies while you ride your exercise bike? If so, nice multi-tasking!

Re: movie
Yes, either movies or episodes. Better way to use time and I get more mileage than if I was just listening to something. Action movies really get me pedaling! =)

Are you making roast beets while I am there?
