Day 177 - Nightly Roundup

My friend Linda and I did a long walk around Madison on Sunday as part of the "Keep Madison Streets Bike Friendly Ride" - we were one of the few on foot.

At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, nor winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child or parent. Barbara Bush

Had an oven fire tonight, due to my not sufficiently cleaning the bottom of the oven from old bits of cheese from pizzas and bread crumbs, etc. The fire dept. sent two giant trucks and a police car - by the time they got here, it was just a bit of smoke and an embarrassed me, but I was grateful that it all turned out fine. Note to self - clean out oven!!

Marriage - check.

Parenting - Doing a much, much better idea listening and giving direct eye contact when the kids talk.

Bus./Book - Did about an hour on the book. The villains in the book are loosely modeled after the Vikings, which is a fascinating area of history too. I now probably know more about Paul Revere than 99 percent of the population;-)

Health - The oven fire put an end to our french fries for supper, so we ate a healthier fare of hummus and pita and veggies and fruits.

Spirit - Going to finish a short chapter in a workbook tonight that accompanied a tape set called the Psychology of Achievement.

FI - No spending today, though I did call a gutter company to come out and see if we can put in an additional or bigger downspout since we are still getting water in the basement with heavy rains.

Garden - Tomorrow the garden club comes to tour, but it was rainy and cold and I got nothing done out there. The peonies are also done and it's a bit of a lull in blooms. But I did plant some seeds for sweet alysum.

House - Got the downstairs nice and tidy as I had two friends over for lunch and dropped off five bags of donations.

Bus. Vocab. nada.
