yojimbo's tank while his other tank is being washed
a superbud..two tomatoes from the same bud
i trimmed this down to the stalk and it all grew back!
damien found this beetle
took a quick ride to the water
looks kinda gross but was soooo good. mushrooms sauteed in a tablespoon of margarine with an onion, then added a cup or so of water and a chicken oxo cube, pepper, and thyme and put two chicken breast in to cook. the liquid mostly cooked out by the time the chicken was done. ate this right after my workout. day is far from over, time to start cleaning!

we have quite a few tomatoes now!
we finally went to the farmer's market and got some more organic ground beef and we put down a deposit for 3 chickens which will be ready on august 10th from Pearce Farm
My husband's mother's side of the family have annual HUGE family reunions, this year's theme was Christmas in July. Damien rode in a parade with his float that had pictures of his family on it
I made a trail mix that I kept in my purse and nibbled on here and there for days. It keeps me from breaking down and ordering something bad when I'm hungry and waiting to go home
Chicken and beans via my husband again!
I'm DONE for a month!!
and at my mother's suggestion we got damien another pet
here's yojimbo, acclimating to his tank. poor guy was living in a cup before this
The early hominids I learned about, all the way down to modern human on the right

there were spiders and rain on my weekend work days.
but also an exciting short (very short) night out with my son to watch his daddy perform at the annual summer rotaryfest in his band Garden of Bedlam!
This was his very first time seeing daddy play guitar live
At first he yelled for his dad, but when he realized he couldn't hear him he staaaared intently.
Then we sat, and he looked around and listened.
He eventually danced. This was over a duration of 3 songs, so 15 minutes. Then we left.
We ate our one jalapeno that grew on our jalapeno plant, damn it was hot! Even my husband had a hard time with it , haha. We may prune it a bit to see if that produces any more. Nothing on my green peppers. I will post outdoor garden updates by this weekend. Exams are done Friday night!
