Macbeth the Usurper


For Friday dinner, we headed off to Urban BBQ for some BBQ goodness. This time around, I ordered a flour tortilla, which turned out to be a bad idea. It had milk products in it to condition it. Argh. I wound up with a vicious headache on Monday.

On Saturday, a neighbor was taking down a tree, so I picked up some wood. That stuff turned out to be brutally hard to split. On Sunday, while shuttling DesignGirl about, I picked up a splitting maul (4 lb) and a mini-sledge (also 4 lb). Barely any dice. That maul would only get stuckity-stuck in the wood, having no pretences of getting through. I eventually split one section, but the other section resisted me. Having other people split my wood is looking better all the time.

We had a smaller church pot luck over our house on Sunday. All went well. Walter left us a chair, which is what he does. This one was a folder chair from the 20's or 30's, by my guess. It's really nice. I wish that I had more folding chairs like this.

We're having visitors this week. Ken is down visiting from Connecticut for a few days. Later in the week, Jenny's mom and Ed come down. That'll put a bit of a kabosh on book launching, because they'll be camped where my desktop is, so I'm getting through some cover work early so that I can launch from my laptop.
