It's a normal day today, filled with the good, the bad, and the ugly. I think I will take them in reverse order, so I can end on an up note.
First, is the ugly. We are in a major heat driven drought. Days in the 100s with no rain, have left, what a few short weeks ago was a lush landscape, an ugly brown mess.
Ugh, it's like walking on straw.
We water in the morning, and three hours later the flowers look like this.
They completely wilt. You can see how dry the earth is and all the leaves that are turning prematurely brown and falling off the trees.
Okay, now on to the bad. Monday, I picked up my laptop, which had been "in jail" for over a week awaiting a new screen. I was so happy to get it back, even though it set me back $190. Wednesday afternoon, it went out again.
It looked like this.
Um hello..... isn't this what I paid to fix? So first thing to day, I drug it back to the repair shop.
This was my face
Of course, my mama taught me you catch more flies with honey, so I restrained myself and didn't throw the computer at the repair guy.
Now on to the good and it's a big one. It looks like this.
Yes, yes, yes..... Our Trader Joe's has opened and it is less than 10 minutes from me. I am so excited. I am going today and I can't wait. So, I happen to think the good may just outweigh the bad and the ugly. Should I wear my Hawaiian shirt to get in the spirit?
