Not yet. But soon. My red onions are still tiny.
We are up to our ears in cucumbers. And that's a very good thing as I love eating cucumber salad until it's time to eat tomato salad. The tomato plants are looking robust. Little tiny baby tomatoes. Big strong green stems. I am feeding them epsom salts and iron. This year's "experiment".
We have corn (from Georgia via the grocery) and cherries. Strawberries from my friend's garden dropped off late at night. I will be eating them with heavy cream tonight. A thank you for finding a new home for her last chicken. I am the "finder" of solutions.
I need sleeveless tops for work. Loose, light clothing. I wish I knew how to take the clothes I have and change them into the clothes I need. I should have paid more attention in 7th grade sewing class.
Being able to remake clothing is a real life changing skill. Having exactly what you want. Wow.
It's rained a bit the past two days. Taking some of the "heat" out of two back to back sticky hot days at work. I did manage to get some sun on the tops of my shoulders and the backs of my legs. Shorts and a sleeveless top (which I stained with a blueberry from my lunch muffin). My favorite time of day is still getting home and taking a good long shower.
My haircut today is shorter than usual. But I like it. I may even "punk" it up with product. I ran my head under the sink faucet to get rid of all the short "haircut" bits after getting back to work. That felt great.
Now, I am off to start cooking dinner. I have the next two days off and intend to actually cook and feed the two of us. How unusual. Have a safe and happy holiday. Fly the Flag!!!!
