Aug. 22nd, 2004

I had my family over for dinner today. It was a good kick in the pants to get the downstairs cleaned up, too.

It was good, too. Burritos and salad, and mom made peach crisp for dessert. It was quite the smörgåsbord, with the cabbage and carrots and mango salsa and mole to add to it.

The garden is huge. The salad’s all bolting, so I’m trying to eat as much of it as I can. The nasturtiums are happy: the leaves are four inches across! I think the squash will even come out, and there’s a baby tomato on one of the plants. It’s not nearly such a good garden as last year, mostly due to lack of effort on both our parts and a lack of water from me while Carrie was gone to Quo Vadis.

After the family took off, I spent a good deal of time trying to make ruby go on the SPARC and Alpha architectures, neither of which I own working machines of to test with currently. Such fun!

How'd you get the umlaut and the whatever-the-other-thing-is on "smorgasboard"?

Hit the compose key on your keyboard, then o, then ".

Windows computers don't have a compose key. You'd have to type ö or å -- ö å

Darling, I love you, but...
Please develop some cleaning skills while I'm gone. Develop a regular schedule where tasks get completed with ease. Please....
smoochies.

We are so lucky to live in a house and how will it know we love it if we don't keep it clean? Something like that.

You know about me and cleanliness...

The kitchen is pretty clean, just a stack of plates from last night to do. I did laundry. This afternoon, I tidy the upstairs.

How will it know we love it
Carrie, I adore you.

I still can't figure out how to do that smorgasbord thing, especially because it turned your instructions into code.

Re: How will it know we love it
Did you type ampersand, the word "aring", and a semicolon?
