6:15 am: Go for a 5.5 mile run.

7:10 am: Come back from a great run and greet wonderful husband.

8:00 am: Eat yummy whole wheat waffles (husband made!) with fancy "real" maple syrup from Trader Joe's

8:45 am: Water broccoli, cauliflower and brussel sprout plants in fall garden. Wonder if they will develop any vegetables before winter hits.

9:30 am: Play Spider Solitaire in home office.

9:45 am: Start planting 40 daffodil bulbs. Encourage Conor to "help" me.

10:15 am: Encourage Conor to "help" Daddy.

10:30 am: Continue to plant daffodils as Conor watches kids' TV.

12:00 am: Eat lunch.

12:30 pm: Convince son that he wants to take a nap pointing out that if he REALLY didn't need one, he wouldn't be so cranky.

1:00 pm: Go to office to read meta-analysis article for class on Monday.

1:05 pm: Decide to water remaining pansies and to attend to the transplanted Osmanthus Fortuni.

1:20 pm: Decide that based on the new growth and flowers in November that Osmanthus would indeed be dancing a happy jig (if it could) because it's moved from full shade to full sun. Cut the zillion dead limbs out of the Osmanthus from being in full shade for 3 years.
