Howdy. We've moved from Cayce, but St. Elizabeth of South Rose Hill or Lizette de Waccamaw de Sud just don't do it for me.

is @ Harper's for a mid-week study break. Too much to get done for class by Saturday PM, letting someone else cook.

can't seem to get back into looking at census data and social norming programs to finish up a paper/project. Time for more caffeine.

and thanks to the Magister for getting me into AC and a giant beverage so quickly. It's very nice to be cared for.

was driven home hurriedly from the Battle of the Bands after collapsing from the heat. Thanks to family for helping me get into the car.

just had family over for one of the Magister's amazing dinners. Time to start packing up the kitchen now - the china won't move itself.

strolled with the Magister to a (new) neighborhood food spot for sandwiches & to celebrate 26 years of marriage.

Term heard in a CDC conference call: 'quasi-agile environment.' For which read 'restrictive'?

is done with homework, and was just checking the bank statement before bed. I'm noticing that the trips to Lowes have begun. Homeownership.

notes that the Red Cross donor canteen has Diet Coke & cappuchino, but no Lance crackers now. Alas...

is shocked and saddened at the death of Frank McCourt, whose honesty, wit and pathos were matched by no one.

House Pics

Might as well resume a bit of blogging, chronicling buying, tweaking, and moving into a new house.

A week before our 26th anniversary, we're finally the holders of a mortgage. Neither of us feels like a Homeowner, more like people who have a note from the bank that will let us live somewhere, so long as we bribe the bank each month.

I don't think the O'Cayces will change our name as we relocate the House of Chez Casa to Rosewood, but we might add some sort of suffix, a la serious aristocracy.



Back Yard. "Lush". Try and identify the metal shed back there.

Dining room with large fireplace

Measurements. Note that we also have a large fireplace in the living room.

New "Homeowners"

Celebrating at the Rockaway Athletic Club.

No-knead bread is the greatest invention since, well, you know ... the cliche'. (HT L Carlson).

sez: Homework is done. Now for the hottub, if there's room.

has joined the ranks of careful posters now that her Mom & stepfather joined Facebook, plus most of her nieces/nephews, aunts, cousins, etc.

Wednesday, July 08, 2009

is headed to bed to rest up for another intense day of meetings and writing and being on call. Kinda like grad school 24/7.

wishes The State (newspaper) would find some other SC govt agency to "dredge up" info on. Today's was a stretch, even for their standards.

was surprised to learn that mockingbirds like to eat fresh tomatoes. We harvested it a bit early, and the caprese salad is quite tasty.

quotes Colbert: "Today was Canada Day and I celebrated the way I normally do -- by not knowing it's Canada Day." Sorry, Canucks, eh.
