JennieG, I guess if I can go in twice to have the doctor saw off bone ends and replace them with titanium pieces and plastic disks, I'm not averse to surgery. But having it right there on your face - I imagine it took a while for things to heal and look normal again?

I made a sale on eBay overnight. The label was on and the parcel closed when the postal carrier drove past this morning so handed it over and saved a trip to the post office. Nice! And another couple of items almost ready to list. It's nickel and dime commerce, I work on them when I have a few minutes to go through the steps, but it adds cash to the bank account every month so is welcome. And - each item leaving the house frees up a little space and lets me see what else I have stacked in there. Plus, I figure this is a niche market, some of these older electronics I sell (in particular). Funny that my last job at the library was in the translation of media, from VHS to digital, etc. And when my father was a librarian decades ago he was the first AV librarian at his institution. It's a family thing, being interested in these old devices. :)

I made a little more progress working under the juniper in the yard yesterday. I still have some more to pull away and while I'm at it I'll prune some of the spikey limbs (cars have pulled close to the shrub on the driveway side and gotten scratched paint). I can see the work as moving from one corner of the yard outward across the space so it's easier to plan the steps.

Now that summer is passing I am turning my attention back to the jigsaw puzzles. Last year I worked them year round; this year I skipped them during the days when that room was so very hot (after the heat pump on that side of the house died and the temperatures soared). Mornings and evenings are ok now for a few minutes of puzzling over the pieces. The heat also did a number on many of my house plants in the window, so I need to repot and trim some of them. We're getting close to the time when I can put in the new heat pump.
