I hope I get a chance to finish writing down a few thoughts from the day. A storm is brewing and I'm not sure if the power will stay on. I saw my first sign for native strawberries today, these are not them. We had to make a class on time so we couldn't stop. Soon.
We're planting strawberries too, but they won't produce much of anything this year.
Tomorrow morning I'll be making some more almond milk but I need to remember to skip the vanilla. Not a tasty idea when making vegan creamy sauces.
Oh my the humidity yesterday and today. Storms are rolling in now to cool things off.
But Sunday was so perfect which was great because my cousin threw a wonderful party for her mom's special birthday. I loved the portrait of Aunt Kathy that everyone could write messages on... taken in Tahoe, her favorite place on earth.
My clothing is filthy these days, in the best kind of way. Garden dirt... oh, it's been wonderful. The last two hot and muggy days though have reminded me that I must return to rising early so I can work for an hour or two before the heat comes. Seeing as I've been a shady gardener for the last six years, I seem to have forgotten just how steamy it gets out there!
These garden markers are so useful, what a perfect solution.
I have a feeling there will be an awful lot of reporting from this place over the next several months. Which really isn't too bad of a place to be.
I really love the days when we can all be home to have lunch together. I'm painfully aware of how good right now is, but also that at 14 (and a half), it's fleeting. Everyday is a gift.
The campus bookstore has the best Apple tech support I have ever received - and with the school year over it was relatively quiet and low key today. All of my questions were answered and hopefully a plan to successfully restore my seemingly missing 11,000 (plus) photo library is in place. (Don't I sound so calm??) The guy that helped me had a t-shirt that read "relax, we can fix this." Seriously, that is my kind of place.
Finding quick, on the go vegan eats was the icing on the cake! Falafel with tahini sauce and veggies for me, hummus and veggies for her. And the sweetest old man I've ever encountered made them for us. Next time I'm getting the Grape Leaves Pocket. Such yum.
We returned home to the screen porch, cold drinks, and the promise of cooling rain.
