I got stood up yesterday. Mr. Larger Than Life spent the morning at the casino with my son, and then told him coming to my house for dinner was, "too much." Of course, this message did not reach me prior to starting the shopping for dinner, so there I was stuck with the groceries, and no guest of honor. My husband was working, so it was really MLTL we were cooking for. Maybe he was miffed about his father's day gift. He didn't like the new laptop we purchased for him. He's used to using my son's MacBook, and thought the pc we chipped in on for him was cheap and didn't work right. I'm telling you, next year, I'm getting him soap. Or nothing. You cannot please an ingrate. Maybe he doesn't like my company. Who cares? He stayed home and called relatives and told them he was alone on Father's Day. We had a good time without him and cooked early enough for my husband to join us for dinner.
Leo enjoyed it, too, and although he is enormously frustrated that nobody will feed him from the table, it doesn't stop him from trying. I'm sure he thinks begging is the purpose he has a long snout in the first place. I laugh myself silly every time I see his nose in this picture.
I was just looking at the nest that got washed off the pillar and into the garden when I looked up and saw the robins were at it again. Sheesh! They should give it a break already.
The plantlings are coming along despite me. I already killed one tomato plant, but the other is doing well, and so are the herbs. Here is what looks like a green pepper. I hope it turns red like the picture says it will.
The morning glories are doing well despite me, too. They're so cheerful looking, don't you think?
Oh, my...look at the time! I can't count on this, though it is accurate. It doesn't give me the time in daylight savings time. It was really 3:45 and time to go to work.
The countdown is 7 working days to one glorious week off. I have this week and then Monday and Tuesday next week. I'm heading south for a few days of sweltering in the Virginia heat and visiting with my family. Since I'm driving, my wheel will make the trip with me.
Can't wait-can't wait-can't wait.
I wish there was a way to speed up that sun dial...
