The sky has been exactly that blue today, all day, not a cloud to be seen. And it is hot already. Only up in the upper eighties but Jesus God Damn, that's hot enough for me. And as you can see, the pecans have begun to leaf so it's safe to plant tomatoes, in case you were wondering.
I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to handle another summer in Tallahassee. Instead of building a house in Apalachicola, we should be looking for something up in North Carolina or Tennessee or Vermont. I mean, sure, we have air conditioning but I can't abide the thought of spending my entire summer inside and yet, when it starts getting above 90 and close to the 100's, that's what I'll be doing. There's no way I can do yard work or garden work in that sort of weather.
Another source of despair. It's only going to get worse. I keep wondering why people fight the reality of climate change and what we need to do to reverse it, if that's even possible at this point. I mean- what's the worst thing that could happen? We have a cleaner, healthier planet with cleaner healthier oceans? How bad could that be? Why would that suck?
Well, anyway, I didn't do any yard work today. Instead I went and got a manicure and a pedicure with Jessie and her best friend Melissa. They invited me and I thought, "Well, why not?" We had a good time and then we had a good lunch and then I got to hang out with August for a little while. He sat on the couch with me and we looked at pictures on my phone.
"Who's that?" I ask him. "Is that your cousin Maggie?"
He looked at them so intently, thinking hard. He's a thinker, that one.
Before I left he discovered a cupcake we'd brought back from lunch. He'd never seen a cupcake before, as far as we knew, but he was not adverse to figuring it out.
I'll take what I can get and gladly.
After I got home I took the babies some cut-up fruit and and gave them fresh water. They're all doing very well. I did not go to the Tractor Supply and mainly because Mr. Moon and I are going to go spend the night in Apalach tomorrow and I wouldn't want to leave them so soon but I may stop at the Ace Hardware in Crawfordville on my way home on Monday because I hear they have all sorts of fancy chicks and no minimum purchase.
I've taken the trash and I've watered the porch plants and I have laundry going and now we're going to play some cards. Mr. Moon's upset because he can't find his fishing weights. He's about to start his annual fishing/visiting trip with his sister and he needs those weights. I'm sure they'll show up some day but probably not before we leave tomorrow.
I have no idea why but I am so tired this evening. I didn't do squat except sit in a massage chair and get my feet worked on. I suppose it's just a day to be tired.
And speaking of feet, here's what mine look like already, a mere three hours after I paid the big bucks to have them made beautiful.
Take care, y'all.
