Summer Putting Up!

The basil is popping and pesto had to be made. I also dried dill and cayenne peppers. I've never dried these peppers before - can't wait to try them!

How is your garden doing?

California Trip.

Last week we were in Palm Desert California. It was hot. Super super hot (as in 114 most days). But, we did get out one morning to go to Joshua Tree. The park was really cool. I had no idea that Joshua Trees got so big. The rocks were very scratchy and seemed to be made up of millions of smaller stones (from reading the guide on the park that they are granite).

Over all it was a nice trip. A little pool time, Mike was in meetings most of the week, dinners out, bowling, antique shopping and hiking!

An Update ...

I noticed the other day that my blog has more photos than stories or notes on life these days. Figured maybe I should change that a little. Last night, while it was dumping rain at our house, Mike noticed that his wedding ring was missing. He had been working in the garage most of the day and wearing rubber gloves. So, he sat on the floor pulling rubber gloves apart. I was certain that an adult melt-down was about to happen. I have no idea why, but I thought to check the bed and under the bed. With one quick glance I noticed the ring under our bed. When I gave it back to Mike he said that during the night he heard what he thought was a washer hitting the floor - but it was just his ring.

Adult melt-down averted!

In other news another nice error message with a robot. People online have been coming up with really good error messages!

Summer Macros.

Summer time around here. 90 degrees or so - which is perfect for taking macro shots of all kinds of tings. Any idea what type of lizard this is?

4th of July

We aren't allowed to have fireworks this fourth. So we had some bubbly instead. Happy fourth everyone!

Not sure if you can tell - but my corn is knee high and it is the fourth of July!
