32 Quarts

Did two hours of green bean picking yesterday and a half hour on the rowing machine.

Ron was hurting from his session yesterday anchoring gutter guards so took the day off to recupe.

Mission

Spent some time with G and Free today shuttling from a medical lab to her doctor’s office to the pharmacy. G was nice enough to treat me to lunch. I got to walk Free.

I picked up the two meds needed for the colonoscopy prep next week. Had a lousy experience yesterday at S&S pharmacy yesterday. Not worth the convenience factor.

Ron has been busy with the gutter guards in the front.

I paid household bills and reconciled the checkbooks.

Vegetables

I prepped and cooked for a good part of yesterday, didn’t leave the property.

Made two salads, kale with tahini and a green; yellow squash, tomato parm casserole; baba ganoush.

Ron did the transfer station run.

We had a delightful cocktail hour on the deck.

Weekend; Filter

Yesterday, Ron did a fair amount of tree work next to the driveway. He’ll cut up the branches. I loaded the truck for Emma’s sheep. Did the MTR standout in the morning.

We’ve been enjoying the rowing machine.

This morning Rondromat did laundry and we changed sheets. I cooked poached eggs with sauteed vegetables and made another attempt at cleaning the oven from the mishap the other day when I burned my hand and spilled a sheet of roasted vegetables. It would be nice to rent a steam cleaner (Home Depot) for the stove.

Changed the water pitcher filter a couple of days ago.

I dropped the leaves off at Emma’s and had a nice visit afterwards with G and Free. G made my day by serving prosecco, which I’d been craving since hearing about a party to which I’d not been invited.

Picked up a few groceries at Stop & Shop.

White actors dominate screens, and white directors and writers are overrepresented behind the camera.

14 Music Industry Leaders (NY Times)

For an industry that owes much of its fortunes to Black artists, there are few executives of color in the top ranks. These are the chief executives who run the three major label conglomerates that account for roughly three-quarters of the market; the three publishers that generate the most revenue; and the two concert promoters that put on most shows, plus the heads of the six major streaming services and broadcasters.
