Yesterday was a grim and dismal day. Highlights were stunting the growth of lots of grass, clover, and weeds, and watching the evacuation of New Orleans on streaming TV. (While remembering tuning in to an AM station late at night as Katrina was headed that way, and wondering why things seemed so calm and there was so little traffic.) Lowlights were existential blah.

Today, trucking adventure to get out to Anna's, then hauled cinderblocks up the hill to the yurt, built a fire pit and we dined on lamb kabobs and her delicious garlic fried green beans.
