I'm not cured, but certainly better. I can still feel the catch in my back, but the horrible stabbing lightning strike of pain associated with that catch yesterday is all gone. As my friend Curious would say, "I've got a hitch in my giddy-up."

Dawn's at work, so the kids and I are going to load up in the Old Slow Coach and see if we can find any yard sales. Then we're going to the Used Book Store to sell our finds and hunt for treasures. I LOVE the Used Book Store, which refers to itself as an Index which makes me love it even more. Index is much more romantic than Used. Doesn't it call to mind a dusty forgotten library where our hero finds the last of the clues that will deliver the world from certain evil? Yes, it does.

Fall has started straining at the womb that Summer has made for it. She will soon be here, and we will hang orange garlands to celebrate. Until then, I hope you all enjoy a restful Saturday! Don't forget to revel in the last days of Summer. In a few months, we'll all be bitching about how cold it is.



  1. Good to hear you're feeling better. Take it easy today if you can. Gentle hugs coming your way.

  2. YOU will be bitching about how cold it is?? YOUUUUU???? OMFG. You need to come to Minnesota in January. I'll pick you up from the airport. LMAO

  3. I am so glad you feel better. Do not, however, overdo today!
    And yes- even if the temperatures are hot, the light says fall is coming.

  4. UPDATE:
    It will be no surprise to most of you to hear that she did NOT follow Ms. Moon's advice. She is now down for the count, in the bed - I suspect for the rest of the day.
    In her defense, there really is no way to not overdo it when left to care for these four on a Saturday.

  5. I'm already complaining about the weather - usually I love the cooler weather in the fall. Usually it gets hot in the summer. Not this year!

  6. Back injuries suck!! And unfortunatly take forever to heal. I have been dealing with back problems for years. You need to take it easy, or as easy as you can. Don't over do it! Or I will have to come down there and do something about it. :-)

  7. Just re-read this; "Fall is straining at the womb that summer made for it."

    What an absolutely exquisite line.
