What I learned on Wednesday

Wednesday was a busy day and my mind is boggled with all of the news I garnered from each sibling.  Is there a better place to share than on our blog?  So, here is the story.

Yesterday, Elizabeth bought a new computer so she and Ron can have "dueling" computers, even though she has to wait for it to come.  The missing tidbit here, is how will it arrive?  When will it arrive?  Who will set it up?  Will it still play special games or just be limited to Pinterest?

Judy - well, she was going through her fabric and indicated she was amazed at what she was finding.  She mentioned that she was pretty sure the fabric fairy was gifting her with various pieces of fabric because she couldn't remember buying some of it.

Steve - I didn't talk with him but have heard by the grapevine that he needs to see a chiropractor.  Does he need to sleep on the floor?  Or should he take a nice long vacation and come west?  I propose that heading to Florida should be out of the question - they do have sink holes, you know.

Louise - she is in Oregon so I can't report on her.  Hopefully she is enjoying her stay with Diana, but I have this vision of her dragging her quilting frame along.

And then there is Dwight.  He now has a "thingy" that Velna's sisters gave him for his birthday that is an olive oil spritzer, and a salt and pepper shaker all in one.  He was feeling quite smug because he was sure he is the first one to have it, and was very encouraged when I told him I had never seen such a thingy.  However, the Costco non-coupon booklet for October came yesterday and low and behold there was his "thingy" at a reduced price.  Am I tempted?  I just want to know if it takes batteries.

As you can see, in between harvesting stuff from the garden, checking in on the chickens who are in a slow production mode because they are becoming featherless (I think the chicken gurus call it molting), ironing a couple of shirts so it looks as though I did something (I leave them hanging in the doorway just in case evidence is needed), I had a very productive day.  After reading this do you wonder whether there is still a need for the PT?

Happy Thursday - I've gone to DI.

no batteries. Let me know when you buy it.
What is the definition of boggle? I am trying to envision your "boggled" mind. Is it kind of like chickens molting? Now expect once-a-week (oftener if necessary) summaries to save calling back and forth. I deleted Snood from my iPad. Free at last, thank heaven, I am free at last.

Dwight said...

You won't find the two-in-one salt and pepper grinder nor the olive oil spritzer at DI, dear. Go buy a $5 chicken with the money you save from the lower price. A $5 Costco chicken is cheaper than if you boiled up one of your tough old molting, non-laying, lazy fat hens eating $20 a pound chicken feed. Trust me. I have degrees in agricultural economics and took a course in chickens (called poultry production 301). I drew pictures of eggs and various stages of chick growth in the egg.

Judy said...

Yes, Ann, your post reminds me of a neighborhood column from the old Powell Tribune. Were those reporters paid positions or were they written all for free just to be famous? Is this the first with many more to come this winter? The snow may get very deep. What else shall we do until Downton Abbey starts in January?

Dwight is going to submit his chicken development drawings.

Elizabeth said...

Admit it - this is the most fun blog entry in a while - and the comments are overwhelming! First, the computer is in - but it will take them 3-4 hours to move my stuff from this computer to the new one, so think we won't just run down this afternoon, and wait until morning so we can do a session at the temple. There isn't anything else to do in Logan for that period of time - not even shop for fabric. Judy has probably found extra fabric that she found at Value Village in the back somewhere where she wouldn't show me. As it is, her chic wardrobe seems to come from there, and who would know, but Bob? The chickens are in a serious stage. Do they know that they'd better hurry up with the moulting (molting?) business or they'll end up in Ann's Sunday stew pot? Now, with a spot of snow on the mountains, and rain drizzle, I will sign off - maybe.

Elizabeth said...

Oh, DI - Ann, I did just give them a bag of fabric. Better check to see if they transferred it to Provo? Or are you still looking for wool? Or a two-ion-one salt and pepper grinder and olive oil spritzer? (Funny - I had them all pictured as three cozy utensils all in one handy-dandy utensil.)

Dwight said...

What did you learn on Wednesday and Thursday? We're waiting.

Ann said...

My brain can handle just so much at once. I'll get back to you.

Ann said...

Just a quick update. I dropped stuff off at DI, was not consumer of unfound treasures that were possibly hiding out. We haven't eaten the chickens. They are beginning to lay a few more eggs, which puts them back in the safe zone. My chickens only "molt" since it is only British chickens that can "moult". I'm trying to learn something new to share. We'll see how the week goes.

Judy said...

Ann, are you sure that there isn't something that you gave to DI that you wished you would have kept? Better go to the store and see if you can find it.

So during Downton Abbey season your chickens can "moult" but right now they are only "molting"? I think I get it.
