Happy ice cream and laughter, happy movie
Happy pizza and napping, happy park!
Happy sunshine and pony tails, happy hug,
Happy cartoons and kisses, happy run…
(good aiming and breathing, good sights
good trigger weight and targeting, good stance
good cover and water, good dog
good boots and knife, good wire,
good zombie hunting!)
Stay Smart. Stay Safe. Stay Non-Zombie.
My tomatoes (-tos? toes? yes. Toes.) are lovely! I realize that growing tomatoes isn’t exactly news-worthy, but if you know me, you know that I kill plants. I am a serial killer of all things green. …so when I not only don’t kill something, but take care of it enough that it feels safe in trying to replicate itself by producing seeds/fruit…well…that would be like …like…
…like me NOT killing a plant!
Perhaps this post should be titled: “In Which I Brag About Something Stupid.”
But its so NOT stupid! Because I didn’t kill a plant! and now I get to eat it!
Well, anyway, here is photographic evidence that my serial plant-killing days are currently on pause.
We’re having bruschetta tonight! (pause for Pee-Wee Herman dancing…)
I found this little nursery of spider eggs in my garage. Right next to the fertilizer for my tomatoes.
I’ve had the heebee-jeebies ever since.
Psssst…check out my latest posting for Green Gate Olive Oils, mmmkay? Thanks!
So…today I discovered 12 little baby green tomatoes!
I also discovered that I’ve forgotten the code to my super-dear bike lock for my Betty of a bike.
…I’ll give you a dozen ‘maters for a 4 digit combo…
…and in other news, I’ve lost five pounds as well as my patience and ability to withstand the glaring presence of Hershey bars with almonds. Somebody hand me some nachos and a SlimFast. STAT.
We had some excitement in our house this morning: we noticed the first ever, ever, ever bright red strawberry in our container garden. This inspired my oldest son to proclaim, “We have the best garden ever.”
No, this is not Photoshopped or doctored or edited, except for the cropping. I used a 50mm 1:2 macro Zuiko lens and shot in RAW. I developed it in Olympus Master 2 software, the stuff that came with my camera. Easy peasey, goffer greasey. …I hate Photoshop.
