Thursday is upon us once again, and that means it's time to share three things.
1. It's hotter than blue blazes here now, and more humid than the Amazon Jungle. Yet no matter how hot it gets I still love this time of year. I love the sun, the bright light, and the
2. Last night was like Thanksgiving in July here at the Chesapeake Bay Family compound. My mother, whose garden overfloweth, fixed the most incredible dinner for us: fried flounder, stewed tomatoes, squash, green beans, spoon bread, mashed potatoes, and salad. Every single bite was a little taste of heaven. My favorite was the stewed tomatoes. I'm pretty sure I could eat vine ripened tomatoes until the cows come home. (If we had cows, that is. And if they were lost, far, far away from home.)
3. To preserve peace in a staff meeting at work yesterday, I was forced to kill a jug hornet, which I didn't want to do. Although I don't really care for insects, I have no particular desire to kill them unless absolutely necessary. When one of my co-workers started freaking out over the fact that one was in our conference room, my boss (a man) glanced over at me and said, "Chesapeake Bay Woman is a country girl; she'll take care of it." I assured them the jug hornet (or whatever it was) had no interest in harming us, however nobody believed me. So things escalated, and I had to kill it. When I told my mother this story last night she said that karma would ensure that I would come back as a jug hornet in my next life.
So, there's that to look forward to.
What's happening in your world?
