I felt like I needed to eat an egg this morning. Plus I drank orange juice without diluting it. Jupiter must be aligned with Mars today or something.
Speaking of chickens and the summer weather … everything is shriveling up out there from the prolonged intense heat and the absence of the cloudbursts we have been conditioned to expect this month. Don’t even ask about the bright red geraniums. Just know that I am doing my best to kee them viable. The only thing that’s really thriving is the Hen ‘N Chicks in the Talavera chicken – it’s even harboring some infant maple trees. The creeping thyme in the Talavera turtle has lost its charming little flowers and while not exactly lush and beautiful is vigorously creeping out of its container and is making its way across the concrete stoop.
