Mid July

Yellow Columbine.

Was up early to watch a near full waning moon hoover above mountain tops catching the days first rays of sun. It’s been good to have time off to relax. Lisa pointed out the last time we had time off in the summer, our son Hunter could stand on my hand, about 26 years ago. That was when we would head down to Montana.

It’s getting hot. The garden is going full tilt. Another 5 days and the peas should fill out. Cooper and Scarlett are going to like that.

Tomorrow I plan to stick close to home, weed the garden, make sure everything is watered, pick the rest of the garlic scapes and make pesto. Lisa also wants olive tapenade and salads galore. It is too hot to turn the oven on to cook in the house. 

So far the skies are clear, blue, smoke free. With luck they will stay that way.

        it was around that – and that’s really unusual for up north where we are! My house only had one habitable room and that was the dining room – the rest were oppressive and horrible. But my houses is exceedingly uninsulated!
