On Friday I called the pharmacy to learn when my favorite pharmacist will be in, and was given the wrong information. I've returned home and have a few things to do here before trying again later - this includes rounding up produce to donate in the mutual aid fridge a few miles north of me. I can't use all of the okra and peppers, but others will.

I missed the trash pickup (they were early) so I'll toss the current batch of sunflower (Helianthus annuus) cuttings into the back of the back yard. Yesterday's weeding in the front contributed to the compost pile, but sunflowers are too tough and woody to add to it. I need to turn the compost, but not while I'm dressed to go out. That's work for the ratty jeans and oldest yard shoes.

On Facebook I've had some tips for granola-making from fellow Mudcatter Jenn Brooks. She makes a batch more than double the size of mine (there are two of them to eat it) and has simplified it by baking it in a steel bowl. I await the restored Facebook (crashed earlier today) to learn the details of how that works. Parchment? It might be a sticky job otherwise.

Fall cleaning is going to involve seasonal adjustments like getting out the extra blankets for cooler weather. I washed them in the spring so they're ready to go now. And I have to turn my attention to the dog beds - Cookie-proofing them so she doesn't tear the stuffing out. Again. I'm going to repurpose the fabric from the old sofa-pet-thing to cover them and hopefully make them less attractive to destroy.
