We've been having some nice nights lately. Light rain, some lightning in the sky and thunder off in the distance. It's very cool, low sixties and not too humid even with the rain. When the moons out, my place looks very similar to this painting.
We didn't do a lot today, yesterday was very busy and tiring, and we are catching up today. The dogs barked last night, on and off, all night. I have no idea what was wrong but I didn't see anything in the flood light, and I didn't get much sleep. So I took a very long nap this afternoon, the prerogative of those with leisure time. I'm still not used to being able to do what I want to, when I want to.
The dogs and I ventured forth today looking for "Jack in the Pulpit" plants. My wife says she thinks she has seen some on our property. So I walked one side of the property , along the property line. Didn't see any, but it was good exercise and I like to walk the lines periodically to see if anyone is stealing my trees. It's happened before.
Having spent four years in New Mexico while I was at UNM, I really like things "Southwestern." We have had the same living room curtains for years, so we bought some fabric and my wife made new curtains. When the sun comes through the window, the curtains glow like stained glass. It surprised us how nice they look. My wife is really good at sewing, and at making our house look comfortable and cozy.
There's a person who likes to leave ugly comments, and they especially like to disparage the things my wife and I do around the house like making new curtains. I honestly feel sorry for them. They clearly don't have a spouse themselves, and they must be lonely. I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy. When my wife goes up to spend time with my daughter, when E is not feeling well and needs a little help, I miss M . And I'm always really glad when she gets back. Who would ever have thought that would be something to ridicule and make snide remarks about? It doesn't bother me, it's just sad.
There's a new CDNN catalog out. You can either download it, get a paper copy, or both.
Cartoons to brighten the day:
Well, one last chore to do . I have a security light burned out, and I need to go replace the bulb before it gets dark. Then I'll sit out on the porch for awhile and watch the evening come on.
A video from my Nephew
I have a nephew who lives in California. By day, he drives a UPS truck. By night, he plays in a heavy metal band. He's a good kid, but he is a little different by my standards. He has tattoos, really long hair, and wears all black clothes. He thought Uncle Harry would like this video. Strange music but I like the lyrics.
