Linda goes in spurts watching TV.  It hasn't even been turned on for about 3 weeks.  Not because Linda is abstaining or anything, she just totally loses interest in it.  If there is a Netflix show she likes  she'll watch all the seasons in a row without a break.  There is nothing on network TV that she watches on a weekly basis.  She doesn't like sports or news shows.  Tonight when she decided to watch the old school movie Twister on ABC family channel, the cable was buggy, cutting in and out.  She can only hear about every 3rd word before it breaks up.  Looks like another quite night reading (yay!).

In other exciting buggy news, the mosquitoes are out in full force.  Before Linda went out on the deck to eat her dinner, she sprayed herself with Cutter.  It has worked in the past, but the bugs were not deterred. 
There are more bites on her arm and at least 5 more bites on her legs.  Linda must taste extra delicious to bugs.  She is pretty sensitive to bites and stings.  Once at the zoo she got stung near her eye and the whole lid swelled shut.
At least the dinner was amazing: a roasted Portobella mushroom topped with artichoke hearts and sun-dried tomatoes; balsamic vinaigrette asparagus; and spicy Brussels sprouts.  For all the non-vegetable eaters out there, you are probably grossed out.  Enjoy your rare filet mignon, Linda won't bother you for a taste. 

Penny and Sarah went apple picking today.  Apples are one of her favorite foods so she was pretty happy to sample the goods while they picked!
