Yesterday was lunch at Ingrid's house and we had a wonderful time with lots of laughter, some good food and we played this new game I recently acquired, "Cards Against Humanity." I was introduced to it by my daughter who discovered it via Nikki's daughter. It is irreverent and quite raunchy at times, but incredibly funny. Would have played longer, but my back gave out and we moved to living room, lots of cards involved and we needed to be at the table.

I was quite pumped when I got home yesterday and had a post all worked out in my head, tried to log in but failed, so all that disappeared.

Tonight fence guy comes, should be interesting. Erin is going to get a bid on fencing the entire property and I want to see if something can be done about fencing off the yard with something other than barbed wire so that the dog can run loose in the yard. Right now she has a very long wire along which she can run to get some exercise, but it's not enough. I can't take her on walk because she is big and strong and pulls me down and the husband won't do it. I am hopeful there will be a solution.

Froze 3 quarts of green beans last night, very grateful for help from kids as it was late when we picked them. That makes 5 quarts total which is not much compared to the days when I used to can 50 quarts every summer, but it is what it is. Some years you get good crops, some not so. Still picking a few tomatoes each day. Usually have frost by October 10, but this year is quite odd weather-wise so who knows what will happen, unpredictable always.

Started a new book, moved back to mysteries, this one a mystery written by a British author, Magdalen Nabb, who lived in Florence, Italy and the series whose main character is Marshal Guarnaccia is set in that city. It's a quick read and I'm liking it well enough, though for some now unknown reason, I didn't buy the first book in the series and this one, "Property of Blood" is one of the later ones. There aren't many as the author died of a stroke at age 60.

The poison ivy and ant bite are still inflamed so I'm not going back outside to work today. By next week the temps are supposed to drop with highs in the 60's so will wait till then.

And, lest I forget, I am totally pissed that 2200 signatures on the petition to have medical cannabis included on the November ballot were tossed out and so it won't be on there this time. I worked on the campaign and believe strongly in cannabis as a medicine of value for many different issues. So very disappointed, but this is after all the Bible Belt. Did I expect anything different, not really.

But, I'm not going to let it ruin my day. I may just goof off all day just because I can.
