Sorry about all the exclamation points. It's been awhile since I've blogged and my perspective is askew.

Productive day has been productive.

After day jobbe, grocery shopping and a picnic dinner with the child, I made a boatload* of mango salsa, worked on Sekrit Projekt** and read a bit from a book that actually made me laugh out loud***.

And tomorrow I'm going gold panning. Hear that? Real life gold panning. With a freaking pan and EVERYTHING****. Wish me luck!

*A very small boat, perhaps large enough for a hamster captain and a small crew of voles. They're very efficient. Hence the joke: "How many voles does it take to screw in a lightbulb?" Answer: "Only one. They're very efficient." I did not say it was a good joke.

**Very soon to be UnSekrit Projekt. :D

***The last time a book made me laugh out loud, I was on an airplane and trying very hard to be quiet and unobtrusive. So of course I started choking, which made me squirm and spasm, and I nearly ended up with my seatmate's wallet in my mouth. Turns out it looked as though I was having a particularly violent seizure.

****I have no idea what else is involved. Gold, I guess. And some water, maybe.


  1. I have many comments. First: my dad is a goldpanner and tho we have the motherload here in California, he wants to goldpan in Alaska. Mango salsa is disgusting. I have seen voles, i think it would take two of them to successfully rotate a lightbulb into place. I look forward to hearing about teh secrit prejekt. That is all.

    1. 1. It is gorgeous up here. I'll post pics when I get a chance.

      2. It is not either!

      3. That could be. They are veddy, veddy small.

      4.'s so fun.
