Random Thoughts on Thursday

6:41 AM

Sunset bike ride
*  It seems as though I've taken a bit of a hiatus in my space here.  Work.  I blame it all on work.  It's a necessary evil, but one that sure gets in the way.

*  Last week I had recurrent training.  Basically recurrent is a "test"  It is all stuff that we need to know to do our jobs, but we are tested on it yearly.  It's stressful for me, because I don't want to lose my job.  I'd really have to screw it up to lose my job, but the stress is still there!

*  The garden is coming on.  S L O W L Y!  We have a ton of cucumbers (t's a good thing we like them!), but while there are a lot of tomatoes, they are all green.  It just hasn't been all that warm here. And we've had a lot of rain.   I"m NOT complaining, mind you, just making an observation.  But everything will probably be ready at the same time.  Isn't it always?  It's a good thing I"m home for a while!

Happy Thursday my friends!

  1. Wow that does sounds stressful - having to take a yearly test with your job on the line? The good thing about green tomatoes is that you can fry them!

  2. What a beautiful picture! We have the opposite of you - lots of tomatoes, only a few cucumbers but tons of zucchini and squash. We haven't had much rain, but it's been colder than normal. I hope work slows down for you a bit.

  3. I detest testing with all my being, a practice that I wish would disappear.
    Have I told you how much I love your photo? It really is so pretty.
    The rain finally moved out of here, but now we are suffering the hottest temps we've seen all year, I am melting!

  4. love the shades of oranges in your photo! hopefully work will settle and you will have time to pursue your happy activities!

  5. I don't know anyone having good luck with tomatoes this year, strange! So glad to hear that you survived your work training, that sounds so stressful!
