Today is probably going to involve a trip to the mall. Joni has started to think about getting new place settings. Out last set of Sango Gold Dust Black dishes lasted a decade. The only issue we have with the set is that a number of dishes have broken or been lost over the years. Mostly we are missing the smaller salad size plates. It appears that folks that work for Sango discontinued the set in 2009.
Peppercorn the dog is ten years old. That is something that I have been thinking about more and more throughout the last few months. I try to value each day with Peppercorn the dog. Over the course of the last decade Peppercorn the dog has mostly napped in and around my office. I worked. The dog just hung out and napped. I guess that is what dogs do.
I like to work with a certain amount of background noise. Planning out each day to include a certain amount of work has been a part of my routine for many years. Most of the time I do not spend any effort planning out my background noise. A good portion of it includes the streaming music service Pandora. Some of my days involve listening to movies or television shows.
I have been thinking about watching Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda from start to finish again. That show does not appear to be on any of the streaming services. This may be a case of having to trade out discs after each episode. That used to be totally acceptable, but has now become rather tedious.
