I did a load of laundry and scooped the cat's box. Took a couple of things out to the garage that I have been tripping over for ages.

Its sunny outside, but not terrible ... still deciding what to do today...

It's sunny, going to be hot, still humid. I thought it was going to rain this weekend? Apparently that's been pushed back to late Sunday, and on into Monday and Tuesday.

This afternoon I have to take my car to a suburban Nissan dealership, since it is subject to the recall for defective airbags. It took me awhile to respond: first a postcard, then an answering machine message, very doomish, that voice! When I made my appointment I was told the '2:00 hour' was available. Hmm. I don't think it should take long, but that will depend on earlier appointments, as in a doctor's office.

[livejournal.com profile] bluesail_toby says that suburbs and suburban roads are named after what the replaced/destroyed. In the case of this dealership, the suburb may once have been a paradisiacal grassland!

Since I figured out where I got the socks from, and found a coupon for Target, I decided to go there after sorting through the mail and bills.. getting things cleaned up to start writing out the October bills next week. Trying desperately to remember when my cousin G's birthday is, I think its 2 October.

Going to Target yesterday was about all I could manage, decided to have conveyor belt sushi for dinner, and then got the trash together once I got home.

Its nice outside today, not sure what I want to do yet.

Its also officially Autumn...

day after BD (off)

Yesterday the accountant-encounter started out confusing but ended up ok. Money is still there to be used for student travel. :-)

I took the day off today, not really because of my birthday but because a 1 p.m. financial appointment in Golden Valley was a good excuse. Since I have so many vacation days coming, I use every possible excuse to take a day off - or at least an afternoon. Car needs to be taken in? Day off! Haircut? Afternoon off!

It's very humid today, and weirdly hot for the first day of autumn in Minnesota - late 80s, even 90!

So .. not doing much today. I watched the sumo round-up in real time, right before lunch. Went to DBs to sit in air conditioning, read, and drink hot coffee :-) and I may do that again after leaving the library.

Once again I have a ridiculous TBR pile. For awhile I was down to Kindle plus one library book and one print book I own -- reading these at the same time, I mean. Now there are more library books ... it waxes and wanes, if a pile can wax and wane. Up, down. I mean, there's the Clash bio and the Chatwin letters, and each of those books is 500 pages long!

Had my follow-up with The Lovely Travis this morning and GOT MY STITCHES OUT! I can take a real shower that doesn't involve using cling wrap to protect my incisions! I can wash my hair! So exciting!

Everything else is going well; my post-surgery range of motion is pretty darn good and I am optimistic about how long it will take me to recover. That said, I am still typing one-handed, and my sling is a terrible pain in the butt. But it keeps me from doing stupid things by reflex, so... (Travis is doing surgery on Monday on a guy who decided not to wear his sling and tried to catch something. Perhaps I should say, re-doing surgery. :P)

I'm sadly getting a lot of headaches, between not being able to do my usual shoulder PT and wearing the damn sling, and I get tired pretty easily still. But it's going okay.

On the computer front, my tablet has a loose display wire (I think) and my Mac is in reboot hell. I have a few more tricks to try with the Mac tonight, as none of the usual tricks work, and an appointment at the Genius Bar tomorrow if those don't work.

I didnt do much yesterday, I did find three different bags of meds from the VAMC in my hunt for the one bag that had the med I was out of. Ended up sorting and putting bottles away instead of doing much else. Watched it rain and sun through the windows.

Finally figured out where I bought the socks I gave to my Godson, his wife wants her own pair, or he needs his own pair cuz she took his.

Got a couple more things out of the Van, and read some more.

sheesh

I got a couple of birthday cards from staff members, and when I sent an email thanks I sent it to the grad student listserv! (a number of them then emailed me to say happy birthday).

j-wat gave me a book on Minnesota caves. He was worried about whether I already had it - but I didn't. :-)

Oh damn, accountant came in and I have to think about work.

Thursday boring report

Asters and goldenrod, goldenrod and asters, with patches of chicory. I may have seen a late-blooming St. Johns-wort or yellow loosestrife.

Roadkill limited to a chipmunk, one gray squirrel, and a fall warbler that won't make the migration.

Windy, cool, got out on the bike. Did not die. Ride takes me to 1100 miles for the year.

15.27 miles, 1:16:15

...was Capitol One trying to sell me a credit card. And the Collin Street Bakery trying to sell me a fruitcake, and a men's clothing catalog for my brother.

Wow.

(Not that I have anything against Collin Street Bakery, who do in fact make the world's best fruitcake. But I order my stuff from them online.)
