How is your Wednesday going? Do they call it "hump day" where you live?

How is your Wednesday going? Mine is good so far. I worked at my friend's preschool this morning and am heading out to see a kid client right now. After that, it's band practice my our middle-aged rock 'n roll band. I had Everett & Jones BBQ for lunch. Nothing much more than that to report.

What are you watching? I haven't turned on my TV for more than 10 minutes in a week or more.

Walks and swimming sound good. I haven't hit the pool for a week! It's on my agenda for tomorrow.

@jstory07 Sigh. If I get three more progress notes done, and get an exam turned in, it will happen.

Sounds good. Did you do anything special? I had a good afternoon with my kid client. Now it's off to play rock 'n roll. Then I'll be able to rest for a bit.

I made dehydrated pear slices and pear fruit leather and went to the chiropractor and made a weird potato/hot dog casserole for dinner since the roast I had in the fridge wasn't thawed. What did you order at Everett & Jones?

It was beef brisket with hot sauce. Their sauce is the best. How did the casserole turn out? Have you Been to Everett & Jones? I don't think there's a "store" down in San Jose.

@TheHorse I haven't, but I highly recommend Smoking Pig if you come down south a bit. There's one in Fremont and one in San Jose, and they have the best brisket I've ever had (and I've lived in both Missouri and North Carolina barbecue country). Great place to see blues bands too.

@TheHorse Oh, and the casserole turned out... all right. I don't think I'll be putting it into regular rotation.

What a sweet little photo, is this a little girl at the preschool? Another dumb question, what is Everett & Jones?

Everett & Jones is the best BBQ place in the Bay Area, as far as I'm concerned. It's a family business, and there are about four or five in the Bay Area. Yep, she's one of my little buddies.

Ribs sound good. Any special side dishes? The potato salad with my BBQ beef wasn't so hot, so I'm going to toss the rest and make mashed potatoes to go with the leftover beef later.

@TheHorse Some of those premade potato salads are just plain awful. My mom's potato salad is the bar by which I hold all other potato salads.

@spiderdust Theirs CAN be acceptable. But I think it gets tired. Tired potato salad is not a good thing.

It's good to have a relaxed day now and then. My kid client and I basically went shopping, and it was good.

Oh no. I hope you feel better soon. Are you eating chicken soup and hydrating?

@TheHorse I am keeping hydrating, do you think that a whisky will do instead of chicken soup?

That's a lovely photo. Some days are pretty routine aren't they? Sometimes routine is good.

Very true! I think routine days make for less anxiety ("predictability is good"), and allow us to venture into the unusual in other days.

I'm sure that 'hump day' is a purely American invention.

@MALUSE I see it as a phrase, because we don't really do anything different on that day. I wonder if Hallmark has figured out a way to monetize the concept yet.

We call it hump day. Today is Thursday so it's all over and on the way to the weekend.

@RubyHawk There was a crash on the highway, so I had to cancel. But the evening was fun. Maybe I'll write about it.

My hump day was horrible! I wrote about it, that boat! I stopped calling it hump day when a friend ask me not to, he said I was getting on his nerves and I like his nerves so I stopped.

I don't really talk it about it much. Actually, my "hump day" is usually not Wednesday. I tend to "front load" my work weeks.

Since it is Thursday here in Jerusalem I can say goodbye to Wednesday. I remember the term hump day. We wish each other a good week until Thursday and then we wish people a good Sabbath.
