Meandering over to the produce isle, rustling through the packages of over priced green stuff. Finally settling on more of the fruit section this trip. A lady who was peddling strawberries invited us to taste. Driscolls was on sale, so I bought a 4lb. container full.
This bag of Nectarines was next on my list since the cost was fairly low. considering how high they were a week ago. 1.99 a bag today. California grown and real sweet if you let them sit out for a day or so. Adding a cucumber or so to the basket. They got real high all the sudden. 67cents a peice for christ sake. I planted some earlier on in the garden but they burned up in no time from the heat.
This is the only thing I have left growing. Pear tomatoes and 3 or 4 different types of peppers. They like the heat.
Now on to real reason I’m uncontrolably blogging the last day or two. Boredom has set in. Work had become slower, and I’m just plain ole’ tired. The older I’ve gotten, it seems the heat gets to me quicker. I don’t watch TV as often any more. There are not to many shows that interest me long enough to get through them. “American Idol” keeps me occupied during the spring months. A new show aired behind Idol, “The Voice”. It was pretty good, but not like Idol. Then you have “Americas Got Talent”. If you can put up with it in the beginning with all the nuts auditioning for a top spot, you can stand to see the airing of better talent as they make Las Vegas.
It’s so damn hot. I hate to ride my horse in this heat. With it still being 95 degrees come 9:00 pm, I can’t find one good reason, to subject our animals of what could really, become a guilty pleasure. The dogs have a nice air conditioned kennel. All the dogs get persnickity when it comes time to let em’ out to excercise. They don’t like this heat any more than we do. Thank goodness for the little kiddy pools you can buy at Wal-mart. It’s like having their own private pool area.
Enough for now…
