Got up early this morning, started up a load of laundry, then headed north to the big Farmer's Market, where I spent a lot of money on fresh organic veggies, local honey, and hand-made essential oils-based soaps. We met up with sillymagpie and brought the dog, got to see some Canadian geese make a landing on the pond there, Bo met a lot of other dogs, and a nice time was had by all before it got too warm.

We came home, put things away, hung up the laundry, and undertook the task of cleaning out the refrigerator. There were numerous things which were old-ish, but nothing that was taking on a life of its own. I never did find what was making things smell off, but at least it's all clean now, and three separate jars of chopped garlic are condensed into one, as well as three jars of raspberry chipotle BBQ sauce.

Then we did Mom's shopping and hit Costco for our Easter ham and some other things, including a few more fans for the house, a necessary item while we prepare for air conditioning time.

Tried to do the vacuuming and found the hose was completely blocked up with dog-and-cat fur (enough to make a few more kittens) and cleaned THAT all up (why is it that things which clean other things get so filthy themselves?). Watched a few of the backed-up Craig Fergusons piling up on the DVR, and then...

DOCTOR WHO!!!

So happy with this episode. Nothing spoilery, but it is nice to have a writer on that show who remembers the Doctor does not necessarily live his life linearly to ours, and he might wander off and age several hundred years to our few brief ones (always very annoying with Ten and Davis. Started at 900 and ended at 904? Uh... why?). And finally, finally, I understand why folks love River Song. I know everyone else loved her, but I just didn't warm up to her in previous episodes and found her kind of annoying. Now I understand. Took me a while, but I'm there. And Amy & Rory, together am awesome. Of course, I know every time a new Doctor Who comes out I'm all gushing with joy, but hey.

Stetsons are cool.

And I meant to make this icon AGES ago, so I did not get the idea from what River said. Honest.


It was so beautiful rising I wanted to catch it on film, but as good as my little camera is, it's not GOOD ENOUGH to get some serious detail on something like this:





Probably not, but this was one of the many many many veteran graves there:




Then had noodles and more Chinese goulash, some nice talk, a slice of an obscenely delicious cake that sillymagpie brought from Chompie's (Jewish deli), and am now relaxing in front of the South Park marathon.

Happy Easter!

Sounds like you had a goood day. I remember taking Cheska, my Siberian, to the farmers' market in Ithaca many years ago and how much fun that was.

Happy Easter!

The Farmer's Market is always nifty -- Roadrunner Park is really a nice park, and it might be a little bit of a drive, but it's worth it. There's the pond and the ducks and lots of big shade trees, and there's always lots of dogs (as well as the stuff for sale!).

It's a joy for Bo, I think. YAY, dogs to meet! (Now if only we could train him off LUNGING at any new dog he sees -- sometimes he terrifies people and dogs, because he's so large. It's only people who notice the whole doggie body language, ears up, happy face, waggy tail, who don't worry too much...)

We'd be enjoying it a lot more if it wasn't raining?

It's exceptionally pleasant here (85 degrees, partly cloudy). I kinda wish it were raining!

I'm sure later in the season, I'll be wishing we had this rain again, but everything's still flooded from February, and we're supposed to get at least another four inches this coming week. Yipes.

Thanks! I hope to.

I can't sweep anymore without attracting the Cat Who Wants To Catch The Swiffer. ARGH.

I liked this ep. It made me happy.

He always gets dirt on his nose from somewhere, so many he does sweep occasionally...

LOVE the icon! As soon as she said that, I was like .....hey.....there is a slight resemblance. LOL!!!

I'd read it in an article sometime last season and it gave me a chuckle, so I went and downloaded some Easter Island photos, and then never got around to making the icon! So the episode made me get off my rump! :D

I hope y'all had a good Easter! Sounds like you had a nice weekend.

I LOVED the new Doctor Who ep! I'm excited for this season. The driving force for this series seems much more organic than the crack in time that appeared everywhere last series. I am also completely in love with Eleven. Matt Smith has made me love the character even more than Tennant, and I never thought I'd say that. I always have to watch the episodes twice with Smith, because he throws so many lines away. I love that his Doctor is always this crazy manic who talks as fast as his mind is working.

(Ten is not pleased at my gushing over Eleven over there in my icon.)

It was a good weekend!

Me, too. I think if Ten hadn't been so badly used his final episodes I wouldn't have fallen so hard for Eleven, but he was SUCH a happy breath of fresh air after the Eternal Sorrow of Ten! And he is such fun, and so very very Doctor-y! (Of course, as my icon says, my favorite Doctor is the one I'm watching! :D)

(I was just reading Paul Cornell's "Love and War," wherein the Seventh Doctor was referred to as "The Most Dangerous Thing in the Universe." Heh.)
