2. Harvest Time -- Yup, I'm still astonished at this:
3. Help With KP -- This is perhaps not the most efficient way to get the dishes done, but it is certainly fun!
4. Races and Men Who Run Them -- Over the last week, both my Brother The Runner and The Mr. participated in organized racing events. The Brother's was a bit more of a major event, involving, as it did, a marathon and a 14,000 ft. peak in Colorado. The Mr.'s was a more low-key run/bike/run sprint duathalon. For each, in his own way, it was a Brave and Foolish thing, and I'm proud of them both.
5. This article on npr.org -- Let me be clear. I am not happy that people are depressed. Not at all. But still, it's satisfying to have semi-official confirmation of something I've thought for a long time now.
It's The Last Week of Summer folks, and while this isn't making me happy, per se, we do have plans to suck the marrow out of it. Stay Tuned.
