I ended up having to rush this, and also overfilled it a little. But my pies have never been known for their beauty, so it doesn't look all that much messier than if I'd taken my time. I always barely work the dough.

There was enough fruit left to make a pint of syrup for pancakes. :-)

So long as it's tasty. That's more important. :)

Generally, I wish people would try a little harder to be neat and look their best and brightest. I'm blown away by the expression "collared shirt," for example, and by the idea that if a shirt has one, you are "dressed up." As nearly all shirts once had or were worn with collars, the term you might mean is "button-down" shirt, as opposed to a pull over. The pull over was the most casual thing to wear outside the house before men and women walked around in t-shirts with faux ironic statements on them. Pants and trousers were made to fit, and shoes did not all flip or flop, or make a pretense toward athleticism. People were not walking cartoon advertisements.

As for the banal sartorial garb known as "polo and khakis," when did you get the idea that's being dressed up? That was once considered dressed down. Now, it's the minimum you should be wearing at a restaurant or paid indoor event to look like you care about yourself and what's going on around you. At the worst, you'll look boring, but like an adult. You can be yourself and be very many interesting things without having to promote your interests through screen-printed graphics.

As well, most of us never see a Broadway play, enter a private tennis club, or attend a fashionable art gallery opening. But we can still make an effort to not look like we slept in our clothing or had our mothers match animals on tags to buy it for us.
Kylie Jenner may have been wearing a classy “Eat Me Out” T-shirt, but at least she wasn’t at the theater. Small blessings, right? Tell that to the slobs who turn up at Broadway shows dressed as tho...

That's true.

I have six kids so I haven't had a lot of money for clothes. I just make sure I have some of each, and buy most of it out of season or used. I get "finer" things that way.

We had this storm early this morning? That was like, if the sky collapsed and fell down.

Putting me further behind on July garden recovery. Trying not to feel a stronger measure of despair.

I have some new coffee this morning. It is first being mixed with the remainder of a Guatemalan one, like a Dum Dums mystery flavor. It has a nice fragrance.

I hope August is better, too. I feel like so much summer was lost, and you know how the rest of the year and I aren't best pals.

My mother just used a hammer and screwdriver to open them on the porch, but I think it's fun to be creative and try new things each time.

I really dig these. Very tao. If you dig them, too, you'll like the sunrise at about two minutes.
 
While I take a nap in an edit bay before the evening shows, enjoy two time lapse videos (Covington and College Hill) from sunrise to sunset yesterday!

Sitting in the room where it's nice to have drinks, but it wouldn't be nice with post-nasal drip and a head that weighs extra and so forth. I'm listening to a book in which the newly married Simon has learned that, after all, his young bride was not supplementing the family income by entertaining old whatshisface but is in fact still virginal, and is waiting in expectation of unpleasantness which her mother, who was forced into entertaining old whatshisface in order to keep the house, says won't last long, and so he must set about proving to her that things are rather better than she imagines,

Only my youngest son keeps wandering by, the really prudish one, so it wouldn't do for him to hear how Simon intends to proceed. Lisa Kleypas is no Diana Gabaldon, but she does cover some of the details.

And we're only about 8 hours into an 11 hour book, so who even knows.

This is good. These are questions to stop and revisit regularly.

Meet Mr. G. Some call him Mr. Gutekunst. Some (not me) call him Mike. Regardless of what you call him, he was my physics teacher junior year of high school. I have seen him twice since I graduated....

...strangely enough, I can relate these questions to the Messiah's Handbook... They fit VERY nicely into my philosophy. Thank you, +Lily Alice :D

I was at Jungle Jim's for the first time in about a month, July having been what it was, and was super happy to see Liberté Méditerranée yogurt, as Kroger stopped selling it awhile back. I also got a bottle of Nolet's gin, as it was a rather good price, and a Jungle Jim's candy bar. And some good coffee. Plus, you know, groceries for the week.

Got too disconnected from things, missed the calendula blooming.

Cosmos are still coming along, though fewer than this time last year, so I'll throw down some more seed to help them help themselves.

I tried to search how to stop Netflix from playing some random show they made that is unlike anything in my queue when my movie ends. All the answers were about stopping it from playing the next episode of a TV show. It's probably the same solution, but I want to know who thinks if I watch a charming French romantic comedy film, I want to immediately follow it with a brash fake reality TV sitcom set in New York? Or that prison thing?

Little things like that are why I watch the other services way more often now, even though I've had Netflix for ten years. If the show begins before I can stop it because the stop button on the Roku remote advances to it instead of just stopping what I am already watching, Netflix puts it in a "watched" group. It's very unpleasant and off-putting.

I like deciding these things for myself.

I don't mind it on Hulu, though, because if I'm there, it's to watch a few episodes of something, and the next one comes up ready to go. Other than the old Japanese films and some Criterion stuff, I use Hulu for old and foreign TV. But I use Netflix mainly for films.

And it's insulting to have your recommendations drilled down so carefully based on your playlist, only to have something completely different begin playing after something you chose. With TV, it would be one thing, but after a film, you want a few minutes to think about it, not to be launched into a sitcom.

I'm so happy this store has reopened. I can always find plants here others don't sell, and the employees are warm and helpful.
