Did laundry and dishes.

Power went off with an explosion at 1843, went to grocery and bought 40# of ice, power back on at 2019.

Paranoid? Me?

Took Gabe to his grampas house, we went to the park and analyzed the various ways of mixing dirt with water and then benchmarking which little girls could run the fastest when approached by a small boy with muddy hands and a large grin.

Napped. Ahh...napping...went out and bought some fish pellets to feed the koi at his other grampas house the next time we go over. Costco trip for large quantities of random foods. Made beef stroganoff. Went outside to get sprayed with the garden hose by the same grinning evil child. Hot bath. Champagne. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzttttt.

Went to the dentist. Dropped $240 for two antibiotic inserts. Then the bad news, I have a cavity and I need a crown.

Bought dog food before I went home.

Stopped at another appointment in the afternoon.

Looked at the mail. IGNORED everything on the radio and television re: bailout.

Fixed dinner.

Just your standard day in retirement. It was great!

Eh, he's got the DNA and a full time trainer!

He seems to have gotten over being perplexed as to where all the other kids dads are all day long. I've got him trained so that when we drive by my old work building he yells "thanks for all the money!" out the window.

That description sounds slightly better than the one I saw: fermented soy milk. Sounds a little bit too much like liquid tofu

That Viili link was not what I was expecting from a website that calls itself www.happyherbalist.com.

Viili, or viilia or filia, depending on your spelling preference is based on milk, is slightly sweet, and thinner than yogurt. It is easy to make. If your culture gets contaminated or loses its whump, you can get more from the old Finnish ladies.

Have you ever noticed:

BEFORE parenthood you'd be thinking "Man, this would be great to share with my SO, I wish they could be here right now"

but

AFTER parenthood you're thinking "Yahoo, I have the whole house to myself!!"

Or so I've been told...
