    Works in progress

    June 1, 2009

    Since the nice weather finally seems to be sticking around, we’ve been trying to spend every moment possible outdoors enjoying not having to be cooped up in the house.

    Behold, my current baby, my garden. Thus far we have Tomatoes, Cherry Tomatoes, Green Peppers, Hot Peppers, Snow Peas, Spinach, Beets, Beans, Swiss Chard, Onions, Cucumbers, Radishes & Zuchinni planted. Still need to get the Carrots & Pumpkins in (hopefully tomorrow) and then no more planting, at least until mid-August when we can put in a second round of Spinach, Peas & Radishes.

    Late Spring/early Summer tends to be hot here in Virginia and as a result we end up with alot of very loud and dramatic thunderstorms that seem to all of a sudden appear out of nowhere and are over just as fast–after a half hour of menacing thunderings and lightnings with torrential downpour. I took this shot of part of our backyard from our side porch just as one of these huge thunderstorms was getting ready to bear down on us at any second.

    Nodding off

    May 7, 2009

    You know the day is going to be long and ugly when you’re so tired but can’t take a nap and don’t dare to stop moving because you’ll fall asleep on the spot wherever you hesitate longer than 5 seconds. On days like this, even a straight IV of Mountain Dew wouldn’t take the exhausted edge off. Only 10 more hours (+/- 2 hours) until bedtime. Not that I’m counting or anything.

    It’s what’s for dinner. At least it is for tonight at our house anyway.
