NBD (no big deal)
Stuff like this happens all the time, it can't be helped. It does mean that I can't breathe out of the right hand nostril now, which is a bummer because I was fine on both sides before.
Oh well. Life moves on.
So, just out of idle curiosity (and because we needed a new mosquito door thing) me and the girlfriend went to the local DIY store. It happened to have a fish place, so we went and had a look around. It turns out that they have the world most unimpressed fish for sale. No, really, blow this picture up to full size and tell me that guy isn't just eyeing everyone and everything with contempt.
|Ugh, they went with blue, really?|
I can't imagine any of the neighbours are too happy. Then again, if you have this kind of disposable income you're probably leader of their home owners association or something.
|Fooooouuuuuuur! ty thousand dollars worth of cage?|
We also saw this cool little butterfly. It was surprisingly cold that day so I managed to get up nice and close before it flittered away. Not the most colourful, but it's nice nonetheless.
We bought a bread maker a while ago. It was that, or a deep fat fryer. A tough choice I'm sure you'll agree, but the bread won out on daily usage levels. Normally it makes fantastic bread, but sometimes I'm left in charge of making it, and then this happens.
When someone else is in charge it can make some fantastic white bread, and some amazing raisin bread.
The melonpocalypse from last year has been shelved, and now I'm trying to grow some strawberries. We had a small crop of beans in the growbags but the yields were disappointing. The wind up here really messed everything up.
The strawberries were grown from seed, which is uncommon, apprently. They've yet to fruit, they may yet decide not to, but if they do I'm interested in seeing what kind of size and taste we get out of them. I wonder if they're like apples in that you never know what the taste of a new plant will be like unless you graft. The random genetic lottery may not be kind to the tastebuds. Only time will tell.
And that's it for this little update. It's been a month since I wrote anything, so I just wanted to drop a few pics down and let the internet at large know that I'm still alive.
Bye for now!
