I've been busy giving art classes. One of my students brought this delicious spicy lentil soup to class. It didn't taste like lentils at all. I'm impressed! She also brought over very ripe mangoes. She put them in the freezer. When the mangoes were thoroughly chilled she had us eat them. It tastes like mango ice cream. It is so good it should be illegal!
My son had a kidney stone. It is heart wrenching to watch your son in so much pain. He is the most happy that it passed.
Unexpected, a tree limb broke off the huge tree. We had a tree expert come and look at our big old trees. We aren't too fond of the idea of another branch snapping off if we happen to be under the tree. Fortunately, the limb didn't break off because of disease. The tree expert said our trees are coming to the end of their life expectancy. He didn't think it was time to cut them down since they are all very healthy. Can our trees get Senior Tree Citizen discounts at the garden center now? It never hurts to ask! Face it, garden centers are plants and trees version IHOPs.
It has been super hot this summer here. I don't think it has been under a 100 in weeks. It was so sad when I was outside and thought 98 degrees at 10 am was cold. I am thinking it wouldn't be so bad to fly up in a C-130 and be pushed out the back end with a parachute over Nome, AK. It really wouldn't make sense if I am thinking 98 degrees is cold to go to some place a pleasant 54 degrees. It would feel like a freezer.
