Making The Lieutenant Proud
That new car smell does nothing for me. Toxic plastic and chemical fumes? No, thank you.
But oh Honey, the smell of wood is intoxicating. My new pine tongue and groove ceiling, still in the works, is as fragrant as any pile of wood chips, making my heart smile in happiness.
Hoping against hope that rain would fall, I happily motored through all my planting yesterday, non stop, getting maybe 100 pepper plants in the ground and less than a hundred tomato plants and dadgum if I wasn't happily surprised and rewarded by a significant rainfall during the night.
I'd taken Nando to the Pediatrician's office to get his head checked out after the fall he'd taken at the park. He likely has a slight concussion, emphasis on slight, they checked him out head to toe, gave him a doctor's excuse for missing school, and he took it easy all day long.
But on the soccer field today? He even head butted the ball and made the only goal in the game, the youngest kid on the team, full of energy, and doing so when Daniel is watching...priceless. Nando will beam all day long now, happy that Daniel had come to his game and watch him play.
