This constant heat takes something out of me, even though I spend most of my time inside in the air conditioning. I feel absolutely uninspired to update my blog. There's really nothing new to report; I spend a lot of time moving soaker hoses in the garden, and that's my main activity. Exciting, right? Cliff decided he didn't want to go to church today, so it's a day like any other. I don't care for television evangelists, and it really isn't so much the preaching that I miss, it's the idea of seeing actual people from the community who are meeting for a common cause. I need something once in a while to get me out of my natural hermit-like frame of mind.
Our tomatoes are still few and far between; we have yet to eat a BLT sandwich, but we're enjoying a tomato a day in salads or just out-of-hand. We have lots of cucumbers and zucchini, and the eggplants are coming on strong.
The other vacant house will likely never be occupied, as it isn't fit for human habitation and really can't be fixed, even though it's an almost-new home.
I can't come up with anything else, so I'll stop while I'm ahead.
