We have internet service, but no phone service. Not quite sure how that works, since we have internet through our phone lines.
We have 3 baby wrens hanging around the yard. What funny little buggers - exploring the porch and learning where to find bugs. When they chirp to their mommy, they sound like really loud crickets.
I'm supposed to be editing, but it's been such a week I can't seem to muster the will. In related news, my brain is in edit mode, so I'm correcting the local news station's FB feed, the newspaper ads, the ticker on any given news station...
Since my name is now out there to all my readers, I find there are certain bits of information I can no longer talk about here. Like, say, I want to tell a story about the people in my neighborhood. Well, some of them have Dying Embers and/or Accidental Death, and I'm now officially outed as B.E. Sanderson, so that's a wash. The last thing I need is someone getting their undies in a twist because I wrote down what I thought was a funny story, and they thought I was making fun of them. :shrug: The life of a public persona. I chose this.
Supposedly, this is going to be a banner year for cicadas. It's been all over the news and papers. They say the 13-year cicadas AND the 17-year cicadas will both be crawling out of the ground to sprout wings and mate. And buzz. So far this year, we've heard ONE cicada. Whoopee.
I weeded the wild flower bed. We have daisies - which I totally didn't expect. Also, there was the one thing that looked kind familiar, so I left it alone last time, but since it didn't have showy flowers, I pulled it this time. Right after I pulled it, I realized what it was and could've kicked myself. Loads of tiny tomatoes on it. I was all like 'crap crap crap'. I tried to put it back, but I think it's pretty much a goner. We'll see if it recovers from the shock and whether the tomatoes survive. Not quite sure how a tomato plant got in my wildflower bed. Bird poop, I expect. Bird eats someone else's garden, hangs out in our cedar tree, lets loose, and tada, we have a tomato plant. Nature is both awesome and a little gross.
What's up in the this-n-that world for you?
