I had planned on posting this early today(Monday), but I’d not finished cleaning it up yesterday when our internet went out. So, I spent most of the day churning butter and shearing our sheep.
We’ve been waiting for our lemon tree to start gifting us since it was planted in December. ONE lone lemon fell off the heavily fruited tree this past week and was mostly yellow.
You’ve never seen two middle aged people get so excited about a piece of citrus.
There’s no membrane.
This is fruit-porn!
An intervention might be necessary.
I shared a while ago that the pipe vine I planted was gifted with caterpillars from an elusive Polydamas butterfly that I had NOT seen.
What is she, Sasquach, Santa Claus?
Friday I was standing in the middle of one of my gardens accessing what needed to be trimmed and along came a big black butterfly that I didn’t recognize at first. Then it hit me and all I could muster up was “Oh, you’re here”.
Indeed she was here. And indeed I spoke to her like she was my neighbor surprising me by returning my crock pot.
Here is 32 dizzying seconds of me trying to capture her on video. I believe there are better videos of sasquach on the internet.
I apologize if anyone has vertigo after that. I should have had you sign a waiver.
the garage door
A few months ago I was complaining about my garage door. Are you shocked to know that I do, on occasion, complain?
It’s the original door that we purchased when we built our house 23 years ago and the motor was at least 15 years old. When I say it sounded like a train coming through the house when you open and closed it, would be just a tad bit of an exaggeration. IT really was loud. The door itself had a fall last year and showed some cosmetic damage too.
So, after I made a comment about how much I disliked it the Coach encouraged me to do some research and find myself a new door and motor. Me: “well, that’s a novel idea.”
I did…and can I just tell you how happy I am with my new door and motor? I’ve been gushing about it to anyone who makes eye contact. You’d think I was gifted with the hope diamond as much as I talk about the darn thing.
Callie is my garage door model. It actually looks the same from the outside, but let me tell you in my best whispering voice *IT’S SO QUIET*.
I was going to share a video of it in motion, but I can’t be held responsible for anyone getting overly excited and soiling themselves.
Also, when I walk into the garage from the house, it has a sensor and a light pops on. I can’t be bothered with having to TOUCH a light switch ever again.
That’s all the excitement I can handle in one weekend….plus, that damn elusive internet.
I hope you are all well and not out there looting your neighborhood.
Bee well. And bee a good human.
