Here is a very refreshing Brooklyn Scorcher IPA for after a long hike, or just on a hot day. (It wasn’t me out of focus, it was the cam! Or was it…)
Here’s another shot of our new pet, Bugsy. Yes, we have a bug problem, courtesy of downstairs. I’m learning all about Venus flytraps. They come from the N/S Carolina subtropical wetlands, and are endangered. Just doing my part for preservation. Exterminate!!
Here’s my crazy ginger gone wild. Twisted. Soon it will take over the world.
The two volunteer tomato plants have also gone wild. I’ve never seen such a harvest–I can barely keep up.
Here is E’s famous bakery at work: peanut butter cookies, challah dough rising, and the final product. Outdone again!
Hey, it’s either trivial diversions, or the mishegoss we’re diverting from. One is boring, the other is discouraging and not productive, take your pick. Crap is universal; no one’s is extra special, and everyone has to deal with it and sort it out. We’re no exception, believe me. The enforced limbo, disappointed hopes, and resulting tension have taken their toll.
I’ve done my share of ranting and whining, as you know, so sometimes I like to mix it up and demonstrate that ordinary life still goes on, despite the challenges. Plants keep growing, food gets made, beer (and people) get drunk, asteroids make passes at earth, normal everyday stuff. We’re still spinning. The evil trumps of the world won’t live forever. Exterm–ahem, that is, uh, excuse me, what I meant to say… seize the small, fleeting mundane moments while you can; sometimes it’s all there is.
