What a gorgeous, sunny evening here in Lochaber!
I *LOVE* how much more sun and lake view we have with some of our trees cut down. I can’t wait until Jeff gets home and we can cut many more down!
Hurricane Maria passed Nova Scotia today, quickly, and at least 100km beyond my nearest shore. It was so sticky and humid still this morning. I had to wear my hair twisted up in a hair clip. A co-worker commented that she liked it up, and I told her that the humidity made my hair so big I would have had to take a personal day because it wouldn’t fit through the front doors.
By mid-morning the stickiness in the air quickly left and it is now crisp and cool and perfect outside. I don’t mind cool, and I LOVE sunshine Hopefully there isn’t too much damage in Newfoundland, but Maria was moving so fast the storm couldn’t have lasted too long there.
I just set our earthworms free. Have I ever told you that Jeff has an earthworm farm in the basement? We use them when we go fishing. He even has earthworm food. Well their habitat was getting a little ripe and they weren’t doing so good when I checked on them yesterday, so with Jeff’s permission, I just set them free in the garden.
Speaking of garden, we have more green peppers coming, and we actually have jalapenos on the way!! That is the first time we’ve seen any jalapeno peppers. We stubbornly plant them every year. Next year all the peppers are going in containers so I can baby them.
Back to the worms, I am really hoping fishing season isn’t over yet. We’ve only been out in the boat twice this summer!! It feels like this summer was so short. Seriously, I can never take another course or big project in my summer time (don’t I say that EVERY year?) Anyway, fishing season is still open on our lake until the end of the month so I hope we can get out at least once more (I’ll dig up some fresh wormies).
So tonight I have a long night of wrapping up my last assignment for my GIS course. Time to crack the whip! I only have until the end of September to get this assignment done and to take the final exam.
I’m rockin’ right now to the 90′s on 9 station on Sirius. Sally is sitting on the window ledge beside me, with her hair blowing in the breeze. She is doing so much better – back to normal I’d say – and I don’t think she is going to need a hair trimming. Between the two of us, we have mats almost all gone.
Monty is outside on the porch, and Zeus is soaking up some warm sunshine and wondering why I won’t let him outside. Now he’s meowing. I just can’t get over that I still have Zeus. He’s outliving all expectations!!
OH I can’t take it – it’s too nice outside – must go take photos.
Back – 5 minutes later with 52 photos. I just walking around the yard taking photos until I heard something really weird sounding in the woods and chickened out and came back inside. Here is my walk around the yard:
Someone has a campfire starting across the lake:
“Let me Out!” says Zeus
Okay enough procrastinating, work time!
