Boring

I haven't posted in almost 20 days. I guess that would be a reflection on how boring and mundane my life has been. Outside of a few trips to the grocery store and my weekly C.U.N.T. get togethers with Scritch, I have been a homebody. That will change this weekend, but that's a future post. There's not even much going on in the garden. We've been eating lots of green beans. The tomatoes haven't been very prolific, but they have kept my salads full of flavorful goodness. My cukes were a failure, only producing one little chode. On the tree front, the few apples that the trees produced look pretty pathetic. I did manage to find one fig so far which was tasty, but not really bursting with flavor.

I have still been going for my daily walkies. It's actually quite nice hiking on the mesa just as the sun rises. Our heat wave was broken in a big way last week as temps went from the mid 90's to the mid 50's. We have been just above average as of late which is extremely pleasant. I have taken to moving the TV out onto the patio to watch football. In a bonus episode of "What the Bear is Watching," I have re-discovered "The Office" and have been re-watching the series from the beginning. I had forgotten how good it was and it takes me back to nicer times in my office when I could joke around with co-workers about the antics on the show. There was a classic incident when my boss was talking to my co-worker about his truck. He had bought some beast that he needed to haul horses. It was too long for his garage. He was describing his garage when he said, "I just needed another 8 inches." Without missing a beat I blurted out "That's what she said!" My co-worker cracked up and yelled out "Dude!" as he high-fived me. Our boss just stood there in confused silence. Ah. Good times.
