What I Learned This Week: Making it Work

WhatIlearned I learned FIRST of all that this summer is not going to be as boring on TV as I thought. TNT just sent me info. on a couple of great new shows they started for the summer this week. Some of my favorite people have gone little screen. I really don’t watch a lot of TV in the summer but now I know there are some new options for those lazy nights in when I just want to veg by the tube.

More on those later (after I watch them and tell you what I think) but here are the titles:


The Closer with Kyra Sedgwick (Season 5; Mondays at 9 PM ET/PT)

Raising the Bar (Season 2; Mondays at 10 PM ET/PT)



Wedding Day (Tuesdays at 8 PM ET/PT)

Hawthorne with Jada Pinkett Smith (Tuesdays at 9 PM ET/PT)

Saving Grace with Holly Hunter (Season 3;Tuesdays at 10 PM ET/PT)

I also learned that I am going to HAVE to stick with a program to lose the weight I want to lose. There are no ifs, ands, or buts about it (except the big butt I have from sitting here instead of being out jogging.)

Third, I learned that Danny DeVito was on the set of “Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia” here in the Italian market last week. (And so was I. It really is fun being a walking prop. See picture below.)

I also learned that if I want to keep my strawberries and raspberries growing healthy and hearty, I need to take some important steps right NOW! Here’s a great article on growing raspberries by Gardner to Farmer: Growing Raspberries: 5 Tips for a Better Harvest.

My crop is small but I need to thin them out already. My strawberries are already spreading runners into each other because I planted them too close. Oops.

Ohhh, AND, my little girl turned TWELVE today. I had to reach UP to help her get the knots out of her long hair this AM. So not ready for this!
