We had a weird little storm last week that wreaked some havoc on my street. A power surge blew out my neighbors' GFI's (all of them) and the surge protector on their computer (although the computer itself was okay).
It also took out the frozen yogurt machine at the ice cream place down the street. (No vanilla or coffee until further notice.)
It took out one of my light switches. And as near as the technician and I can tell, it probably pushed my failing internet connection over the edge as well. All I know is, I had no internet at all on Monday.
On the plus side, the rain and the warm weather that come with thunderstorms have been greatly welcomed by the garden.
Tomatoes couldn't be happier.
I can't believe how well my sage did this year. Usually, the bugs wreak havoc on it, but this year, I surrounded it with geraniums, and that did the trick. Begone, bugs!
I have all kinds of peppermint. There's a garter snake living in there, though, so I'm reluctant to pick it. (I know it's not a cobra or an anaconda, but still. It's a snake. You reach in there.)
The clematis is INSANE.
I see homemade pesto in my future.
Lighten up while you still can
don't even try to understand
Just find a place to make your stand
and take it easy
