Yesterday, I saw a threesome of strange (to me) birds in the redbud tree. Turns out they were summer tanagers. A mama with her two juveniles - a male and a female. I've never seen those before, so it was pretty cool.
We saw our first fawns of the year. Twins. I'm calling them Dot and Dash - because she's very spotted and he has a line on his neck:
The pump went wonky on our sprayer again. We just got this new pump in May and it's already pooping out. So I call the company where we bought it. The customer service gal was really nice, but ineffective. I tried to tell her we didn't need to trouble shoot because we knew what was wrong. Eventually she told me I had to call the manufacturer directly, but that if I had any problems with them to call back. I called the manufacturer and got put on forever hold where the recording kept telling me if I wanted to let them wait, press one and they'd call me back or press any other number to continue waiting. I continued waiting until they got sick of me and dumped me into voice mail anyway. I called back. Got dumped into the queue again, but I'd lost my place in line. Screw that. I called the distributor back, got a new gal, and had her sending me a new pump in under ten minutes.
The political miasma in this country is really bumming me right the hell out.
I'm making zucchini bread this morning. As soon as I can muster the will to move. Need more coffee. Tanker truck more.
I've been having the weirdest dreams lately. I think it's because I'm writing again. There seems to be a correlation between the frequency and weirdness of my dreams and whether or not I'm plugging down new words. :shrug:
What's on your this-n-that radar today?
