Between Summer Weapons Retreat, my costume blog, I didn't manage to post here very often in July. So I figured I'd start August with a "state of the Cathy" message.

* Fun. Status--Great. On Monday, [livejournal.com profile] esrblog and I go off to the World BoardGaming Championships in Lancaster, PA, with a friend of ours from Michigan, for a week of hanging out and playing board games and, in my case, sleeping in as much as possible. That rocks.

* Health. Status-- A bit less than optimal. I have acquired a scratchy, raw throat and intermittent laryngitis. This seems to be the result of my having caught a cold that [livejournal.com profile] esrblog was fighting off for the past few weeks.

* Home care. Status--Even less than optimal. Between the weapons retreat and the rain, the plants have continued to grow. My landscaping guy has rescued my backyard shed from the trees, but so far as I can see hasn't done much else. Maybe I can get a bit of chopping done this weekend.

* Work. Kind of quiet, which is great because I'm going to be gone for a full work-week.

We'll see whether I get the chance to post during WBC. Stay tuned.

True to form, my neighbor down the street took down the Easter decorations a day or two after the holiday.

He's replaced them with generic Spring-ish decorations. Brightly colored plastic flower-like things, a banner with a butterfly motif. In place of the bunny ghosts, he's hung these plastic corkscrew-icicle-like things. These too are brightly colored, in all the rainbow colors, including some metallics.

At least the Christmas/Valentine's Day/St. Patrick's Day/Easter tree is gone from the front window.

Meanwhile, the realtor down the street has replaced the poinsettias, glitter shamrocks and all, with a tasteful flower basket in the traditional Easter colors (yellow, purple, white) and an array of anonymous potted plants. I almost miss the poinsettias.
