August 31, 2014
Please enjoy some Trail Mix and Eat Outside today to celebrate the last day of the August. If you are so inclined you can read more about today by clicking August 31, 2013. El Morno friend BethAnn suggests this savory trail mix like recipe.
El Morno will return in its entirety at its regularly scheduled time, sometime on Tuesday morno (maybe, Wednesday). The El Morno research team has insisted on the weekend off; me, myself and I can be stubborn, sometimes.
In other Odd news: Now that Odd is 2,000 blog posts strong, I’ll be going through and cleaning up some of my older posts. I’m sure the process will include a fair amount of teeth gnashing, cringing and laughter. What I’m not sure of is whether my cleanup will trigger my subscription (RSS) feed to repopulate all the old stuff. Just assume that if you receive a blog post from me dated 2008, it escaped during the cleanup. Who knows, I might even repost a few oldies but goodies. I wouldn’t want anyone to miss my review about dog poop freeze, and fly art has proven to be popular time and time again.
It’s a tail-wagging weekend as my campers’ families head out to enjoy the three-day Labor Day weekend before they come back to hearth and school for their human pups. While some of the suburbs and Catholic schools rang the school bell last Monday, Chicago public schools start on Tuesday and Waldorf kids return on Wednesday. Does it feel Odd that Cole isn’t joining them? That subject is worthy of a blog post all its own. But he did talk me into the usual art supply trip—after all, it was the least I could do since he was saving me so much money by not buying stuff for his dorm room. Yep. I feel rich.
Due to rain, our tree delivery was delayed until the week after next. We were a little disappointed, but according to the tree experts you can’t dig an optimal hole for tree planting if the ground is too soggy. (Who knew?) They did tell us that our little maple was growing bigger and stronger by the day. In the meantime, I added some more yard art, as noted in the picture above. I’m not sure when “yard art” crosses over to “junkyard,” but after I find my wagon wheel I’m done—at least for this year.
One important reminder! Rabbit! Rabbit! It’s the end of the month and you know what that means… It’s time to prepare for the first of the month and all that can be yours by simple saying “rabbit, rabbit!”The first words out of your mouth on the first day of September must be “rabbit, rabbit”. This is doubly important if your birthday occurs this month. “Rabbit, rabbit” will ensure good luck.
I’m off to sit on my patio, sip my coffee, throw a few tennis balls and try to move past the fact that I can’t breathe in this humidity. How is your weekend?
