Labor Day Weekend
Yesterday I went off to the doctor for some cholesterol tests (down another 10 points! That makes 60 in all and means that I totally got away with the fancy dinner I had in Vegas), then went out to lunch with Melissa at Sweet Tomatoes. We discussed the Republican VP pick and how we both like Vin Diesel (we have eclectic interests). We were going to see the new Vin movie after lunch, Babylon A.D. The movie was very good up until the end, then wrapped things up so fast that you were left wondering what the heck the whole thing was about.
Melissa and I have a strange esp thing going this week. She called to tell me about a DVD she had never heard of before, North and South, that had come to her from netflix. We discovered that I, strangely enough, had also never heard of it but had found it on the library shelf the same day she got hers and had checked it out. We had both watched it on the same day. It was a very good miniseries from the BBC about differences between northern England and southern England during the mid-1800's.
I am still making pesto and freezing it, but the rest of the garden is starting to get that end-of-summer-dried-up look. It has been too hot to go out there and tend to it, so I will just ignore it until the temp goes down a bit.
