Well good news, the mr did not break his wrist, or so that is what we are thinking so we are good here. (Although he is now thinking he might have like fractured a rib... It's always something right? )
It really has been a hot summer, and this past week was no exception. And it has really effected my ability to function, but function I do when I need too because it is what it is. So yeah, the usually stuff of the week, some work, some play. The mr spent some time helping me fix up my little basement studio space. We built a platform for my wheel (the floor was way unleveled and I had way too many shims everywhere) and resurfaced my wedge table. Tuesday was a run away to a river day. OR more like a hot as fuck and I can't deal day. We were both feeling all sad and stuff because it was two years ago that Washer died so we were just not up to having anything. When we came home I found a baby watermelons growing on the watermelon vine which ended up making me kind of happy because everything else outside of the garden was dying. Happy for the little things, you know.
Wednesday was again still all hot and humid. People were talking of rain, but we still hadn't gotten any here in WInooski. I Was starting to get pissed which was extinguished when we had dinner with the little. Those kids, they are some funny little people. We convinced Miley and Judah that they should be twins because they are starting to look, act, and sound exactly alike, all the while coco ate everything and ran around screaming at the Buzz and Woody toys like they deserved it. And they might have, who knows.
And we got some ran! Thank goodness. I was starting to think it was never going to happen and I was going to to burn up too.
Thursday I worked at the studio, changed the elements in the kiln for the first time which was awesome and also killed my hips (bent over for a few hours). After that I meandered over to the farm for my veggies. SO many tomatoes! And not so many greens, which I was ok with became I have a buttload growing in the garden (or so I thought)
Saturday after I got home from work, I shaved the mr's neck out by the garden where I witness garden destruction.. FUCK! There is a groundhog living close by that is eating all of my food! I am pretty pissed. The little shit ate alllll of my lettuce that was suppose to get me through the next few weeks, and all the tops of my carrots, and a shit ton of kale. And you would think that a big fat orange cat would be somewhat of a deterrent to animals in the yard, but no. Actually I wouldn't be surprised if Only told the groundhog to go ahead and help himself to the garden because that seems like something he would do to me. HE can be a prick sometimes. And I guess I would have shared some of my greens if the ground hog had asked, but he did not, so we are going have trap and bring mr groundhog someplace else so he stops eating all of my food. And now I am super low on greens... What am I going to do? I guess it's to the grocery store...
Which brings us to today. I am really excited for today. I am going to quick run to the gym and return library books in town and then the mr and I are heading up to the North East Kingdom for a Bread and Puppet show and some well deserved camping in the woods. I am bringing nothing (beside food and a tent) but a book, a sketchbook, some water colors and pencils. No internet, probably no cell reception, no people, just trees, quite and peace. We need it for real.
Internet fun fun.
