“Peas baffled me. I could not understand why grown-ups would take things that tasted so good raw, and then put them in tins, and make them revolting.”
~ Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane
It’s going to be another hot one today and, if the forecast is right, a toasty week ahead. I think we’ll be cutting in the AC. I hold off as much as possible, preferring the freshness of open windows and doors, but there comes a point when it’s just too dang hot in the house and I think we reached that milestone last night.
We’re heading to the garden early, while it’s still relatively cool, to do some weeding and harvesting. Then a trip to the farmer’s market in search of raspberries, strawberries, and cherries. Later, there’s a good chance I’ll give in to the siren call of our lawn swing and settle in with a book for a time.
Sounds like a pretty sweet way to celebrate our country’s 150th birthday to me.
