after taking close inventory of my Lucchese cowboy boots, i discover that the 2 pairs of really expensive "Handmade" actually don't fit me as well as the 2 pairs of less expensive 1883 models. Feeling really stupid that i spent nearly twice as much on the handmade ones!
I got a driver's sunburn today, which I'm blaming on the two-hour round trip to the farmer's market. Apple cider vinegar and coconut oil have soothed it pretty well, though (and my shoulder smells pleasantly of coconut now). And, of course, all that lovely meat and produce was well worth it.
I like my solitary time. That's why I take an extra day of vacation at the end of my vacation so I can have the house to myself for a day. I just spent a week with my parent-in-laws, some of my children and grandchildren, and my husband at the beach. I didn't even get to spend my last afternoon on the beach because my husband drank too much beer and not enough water while on his sailboat and came back to the house on the edge of heat exhaustion and I had to remain with him (temp was about 100° F with heat index about 121° f). The entire time we're on "vacation" I feel like a mediator, because husband has to bitch and snipe about his parents or our son-in-law (who is sometimes obnixious and freaking cheap). We don't really invite the Ps, they basically invite themselves after we invited them the second year we did this and they assume that they are invited in perpetuity and husband can't tell them not this time. This year they decided to stay longer than usual.
On top of all that, I woke up with a sore throat yesterday and felt like crap. I couldn't even get the entire day today to myself. Husband decided not to go into work until later. Just had to get this off my chest. Thanks for listening.
On top of all this, my best tomato crop ever has blossom end rot....sheesh
