Spent both days doing yardwork, mostly moving compost and cleaning out front flower beds.  Ran a bucket of iris corms over to Sash Monday.  Spent a couple hours both days at CYT for my computer fix and some job search time.  Upon learning Asa and Calien had room for a passenger to Standing Stones next weekend for the Charlemagne event I decided to go; Leofwyna encouraged this thought so I was encouraged to follow through on that decision.


Went to CYT to email Asa to confirm plans and Maglist to beg help on the monitor situation.  An immediate response from Dwolm and Owain was most gratifying.  Arranged with Owain to pick up a monitor from him at archery practice this evening.  Got back home in time to complete 3rd quarter report so I could get Natalya's signatures on it at moot tonight.  Also at moot arrangements were completed with Ray for a demo to facilitate his proposal next Monday.  We're having a rehearsal tomorrow night. 

After moot Leofwyna and I joined Isadora at Noodles for supper, then we stopped at archery practice to pick up the monitor from Owain.  We were very pleased when we got home, plugged it in and accessed our systems straight away.   Rah us!

Had a call from the library yesterday evening about four overdue books so first thing today I drove over and dropped off a book I'd finished,  On the Oceans of Eternity, and two videocasettes I was done with (these were not overdue) and extended the checkout for the four others which are a series I've just begun to read.  Just started Dies the Fire yesterday and I can already tell I'll enjoy this series just as much as the preceeding one by this author.  I'd never heard of S. M. Stirling before a couple weeks ago when I picked up Island in the Sea of Time which Leofwyna is reading now with equal enthusiasm. 

When I saw gas was at $3.27 I stopped to top off the tank as that's the lowest I've seen it in awhile. 

Back at home we noticed Gerald indeed must have picked up that stack of excess concrete blocks early this morning.  I'd bought those years ago for stacking board book shelves.  Subsequently they've been used about the place for various things but it was time for them to go away.  They're just to big and heavy to be useful and I have plenty of bricks and pavers for my purposes about the place. 

Got back into yardwork duties sifting the last wheelbarrow load of the oldest compost and setting up the new compost location pulling up old carpet, leveling the cages with the four concrete blocks I did keep and some electrical posts the previous neighbor had left supporting the fence her dog nearly destroyed.   The back line of the property is looking much improved with the old fence and block wall gone where Leofwyna's been transplanting hardy geranium and choral bells from the front beds.  In another few days the other three compost bins will be transfered to the new location in the back corner nearer the raised veggie beds.  There's room for them there now the fence is gone and their old location is no longer an attractive location for them so near the neighbors driveway and entry.

I'm sure the neighbor appreciates all this Fall activity as she has the FOR SALE sign out and the sagging fence and weedy area could not have been making favorable impressions on potential buyers.  This will be the fifth change of owners for that house since we moved here.  So far we've been fortunate in fairly quiet and reasonable neighbors in that property; certainly hope that doesn't change this time.

All this activity day in and day out is making me a little stiff and sore.  Tomorrow Leofwyna goes to work and I can apply myself to some job searching time on the computer.  Saturday and Sunday are soon enough for more of this other stuff; but as Leofwyna keeps noting... this pretty weather isn't going to last.

"medieval" inscription:

For him that Stealeth a Book from this Library,
Let it change into a Serpent in his hand & rend him.
Let him be struck with Palsy, & all his Members blasted.
Let him languish in Pain crying aloud for Mercy,
Let there be no Surcease to his Agony till he sink to Dissolution.
Let Bookworms gnaw his Entrails in token of the Worm that dieth not,
When at last he goeth to his final Punishment,
Let the flames of hell consume him for ever & aye

Finally got that pile of plastic storage containers and baking sheets washed, carried up the laundry and made a run to the library for more T Jefferson Parker mysteries.  Got e-mail that said the job was given to someone else.. already, no further interviews
