It was a cold, wet, miserable day on Tuesday. I took the trash out in a misty rain and then drove through it to work.

My friend Michelle brought me some Tuscan bean soup that you are supposed to eat at room temperature. Thanks!

I made myself walk outside both times, but I didn’t like it.

I got a BLT and fries for lunch. I beat the rain back to work. But it did rain a couple of times during the afternoon.

So, when I got home, I checked the gauge. I got a total of a half inch of rain. So, I didn't have to water.

Since I was outside anyway, I checked the garden. I got five more Italian tomatoes and will have two more cukes in a week or so. I have plenty of blossoms on the summer squash and eggplants, but no fruit yet. I think both are a bust this year. But, the radishes and peas have sprouted.

They had a “lunch and learn” at work that I didn’t attend. But Vicky snagged me a box lunch from Jimmy Johns, so I ate a turkey sandwich and chips for my dinner. This one had jalapeno chips and they were excellent! I saved the cookie for breakfast.

I watched a rerun of NCIS and then went to bed.


  1. Maybe the animals have decided to leave your garden alone now! Bean soup and BLT sound yummy!

  2. We'll see about the animals. I have the last three heirloom tomatoes ripening...
    and, yes, they both were yummy. I forgot how good a simple BLT can be.
