Frustrating day with random blatherings

I want to be at school working in my room. Instead, I'm stuck here.

Phone tag! I left messages for local pediatrician and for specialist in Milwaukee. Now I need to wait for their callbacks. My cell phone is nowhere to be found - I think I left in in Husband's car when we came home from Miller Park last night. That puts out the trip to school and any other errands because I can't. miss. these. calls.

So I wait. And wait. And get more and more restless.

I scavenged enough late summer rhubarb for rhubarb upside down cake, which led to adding lots of goodies to the compost bin. Upside down cake is delicious; compost now has a layer of eggshells (crushed), banana peels from lunch, and rhubarb leaves on top of half a dozen corn husks.

I cleaned the kitchen (again, still, again) and ran the dishwasher.

I want to weed the garden and pick beans, but I can't leave the house for too long because the doctors' offices might call. If I miss either call, it'll take hours to get back in touch.

Errands that remain undone: post office, mail books for paperbackswap.com. Walgreens, to buy strapping tape because I used the last of it to mail the paperbacks.

Outdoor chores that remain undone: Pick beans. Pick tomatoes. cut off spotted leaves on tomato plants before blight spreads. Water hollyhocks and rhubarb and anything else that needs it. Weed south side of the house; clover is taking over. Harvest spinach. Clean spinach. Prepare spinach for crockpot or for freezer.

Yes, you need to not be stuck in a room right now.

I'm tempted to buy one of those blue tooth things, just because of the need to be chained to the phone.
Best wishes

Cleaning veggies is one of those kitchen chores I hate--I'd rather do all sorts of things.

Like eat them :)
