Chiclets, it is WAY warmer than it should be today, and the humidity is horrific. I went for a quick grocery trip and it was a sauna outside. No wonder the weather guys say we could get some ugly storms tonight. :-P

We finally had one of our own tomatoes, and it was DELICIOUS. It was a Carnival, and it was tender and sweet. Sadly, I don't think we're going to get very many tomatoes of any kind this year; maybe it got too warm too soon again, but there are only about five or six young fruits in various stages of green on the plants now.

Had a very funny moment on one of our late-night walks a couple of nights ago -- Layla and I walked past a house with a fenced backyard, and the owner had been a nice person who had cut a small opening in the wood so their dog could see out. So we're walking by the fence, and Layla goes up to it and then jumps back in alarm, and there's a dog! The thing is, though, the opening is only big enough for the dog's muzzle and eyes, so it's like there's this disembodied dog face STICKING OUT OF THE FENCE.* I told Layla it was okay, but it was obvious she was at least mildly freaked out, and I was sure she was thinking OMG MOM WHERE'S THE REST OF THIS DOG? OMG OMG. :D


*I will totally admit to being initially spooked myself, because it did look creepy and besides, it was a very windy night and we'd just come upon a large plastic trash can that had been blown over and was rolling merrily in the street. Layla gave that a hard stare. And right after that was the Disembodied Dog Face. :D
