Gratitudes and joys:
With the sticky, hot weather of late, I'm not only grateful for my wonderful portable air conditioner, but that it has a timer, so I can have it kick off in advance of coming home, to cool down my bedroom for exercise or just the sake of my plants.
Pleased overall with how well my small garden is doing. I planted some torenia in the ground and it's growing pretty good too. The spirea bush next to it is also blooming, so they're even prettier together.
Dawn and I went out to see Toy Story 4 together on Saturday, and to our amazement, we had the theater all to ourselves! Fun time.
Hot summer weather was the perfect excuse to make some nice cold emerald soup.
Also due to the weather, and it being the end of June, I drove to a park Saturday evening. The same park where I watched lunar eclipses in prior years turned out to be a perfect place to see hundreds of fireflies this weekend. It was a fun way to see something beautiful and relive memories of catching fireflies as a kid.
Hooking up Starfish to my projector to stream movies from Amazon for my exercise bike fodder is working great!
