It's been madness here, of the real and true variety.
I can't even tell you.
One thing I know for sure, I am soooo excited about the Mad Tea Party.
YAY for so many of you joining in.
Of course, there is still lots of time to plunge, so you can tell your pals.
I have been so busy, and in the midst of it all, guess what I did?
Yep, last living person on earth to create a Facebook page.
(folks have been asking me for years if I had one)
Hello. Why did a FB page always scare me?
As for life...
I was finishing up some deadlines...
On my way to playing with shoes, and working on some recipes to share...
When, I plunged into another very busy project.
Details to come soon.
Alice was like, wait wait, we need to play with shoes.
And I was like, shoe tidying is going on the back burner.
I have to go to work asap on some quick happening things.
Shoe time to come later, re-organizing, getting rid of.
Heaps of shoes on the floor still.
400 pairs still boxed from city to country move.
Faves in the closets, safe.
Be nice to your shoes, they have souls too you know.
Oh oh, and get this.
Our small community well pump... Broke.
So for 4 days we have had nary a trickle of water.
Watering the garden, what a job.
Having to let some thing go.
The pumpkins are coming up so fast it isn't funny.
Flower, pollen, plump in a week, ripe the next...
What on earth???
We are waiting with bated breath for water stuff to be fixed.
Meanwhile, it's 105'F
(40.55' C I think?)
Hotter than you can imagine.
Thank goodness it is a dry heat.
Not one bit of humidity at all anywhere.
Lots of veggies are coming up.
Lettuce by the barrel full.
Carrots, radishes, ever so much dill which I am enjoying greatly.
And before the heat fire ball hit us, I made...
Squiggly on the "n."
Brown sugar cinnamon stick sauce.
Recipe to come soon, I promise.
As for breakfast...
I learned how to make a frittata a few years ago from Jennifer, of The Two Fat Ladies.
We enjoy them so much.
(Basically you just sautee all your veggies, then put them into your raw egg mixture - I use 6 eggs- that has a little grated cheese in it plus spices/salt, swirl together, and then pour into a pan with a little olive oil and butter, cover, cook on low heat for 15-20 minutes until the top is set, never flip)
Veggies, broccoli, thin sliced potato, red pepper etc.
Perfect sunday brunch.
This guy and his wife (horned toads) and babies are doing great.
I love seeing them every year when it gets real hot.
They hover over ant hills and munch.
Someone slept until 10 a.m. today...
I did take them out at 3:50 a.m. with me, to attempt to water with a trickle, and enjoy the cool early morn air.
Then we all jumped back into bed for a few minutes a couple hours after garden stuff.
Only, I had to get up and Miles kept snoring.
Matty goes where I go, so he went off with me.
Miley, stayed in bed until now.
Snore, roll on back, snore more, puts paws over eyes.
What a life.
YAY for Mad Tea, hopes for water soon (please!), deadline central around here.
Back to work I go.
How are you????
