Raining again 9/23/11

It's raining again.  Just enough to make driving a headache.  I have an assignment to inspect a shopping center on the sly, but decided to take care of it on Sunday, when it is hopefully not raining.  I don't want to get stuck in traffic coming back from Fairfax.

This entire morning I spent trying to find a sketch program compatible with Ubuntu.  After trying out three different programs, I downloaded one.  Had to learn how to use it and spent an hour trying to configure it to print correctly.  Then I had to take of photo of the sketch.  What a pain in the butt.  I sure hope that I remember how to do this next time I need to.  This sketch was of the houses that I had to measure for a job a couple of days ago.

Since I was running low on prepared LDN, I made up a fresh batch.  I believe that T-Jay has issues with the filler that they use to keep the table together, so I used a coffee filter to get as much of the filler out as possible.  I didn't get it all, but it is almost clear.

See all the white crap in the filter?

My pussy has been really playful this morning.  Maybe she wants something, but I can't figure out what.

She had her annual physical, heartworm antibody test, rabies and distemper and cold virus vaccinations. The heartworm antibody test came back negative.  Now I have to collect her poop to be tested for parasites, which is no easy task, since my room mates hugerthanmycat, Patches, insists on putting his big butt in the tiny litterbox to poop also.  

When I got to work last night, we had our first Release Series 7.0 parked in front of the door.  She's a real beauty!!  This is one of 2,200 made.

Time to speed-cook before I go to work. :)  Then off to work.


  1. Yes, this rain does put a damper on things! I am just glad the grass seed I put out the day before the heavy rains after Irene passed by didn't all wash into the lake. I actually have grass sprouting and it should be well established before winter hits, yay!

    Thanks for the update on Scilly! I am so glad she is HW negative, too. Love the pix of her...think I'll use them on Wordless Wednesday next week!

  2. Teri...the water is making my stuff grow also, but I guess it's too late. The squash is blooming like crazy, but they are not making any veggies. :)

    Yep...Silly is fine. Funny, she couldn't wait to get into the crate. I think that she thought we were going back to New Baltimore.


I know it is only the ramblings and rants of one woman, but I would love to hear from you.
