This is one of my pumpkin babies, finally planted in the green house.
We had barely begun clearing it out Sunday morning before something got caught
in my hair. Thinking it was a fly I whacked at it - and was stung right in the knuckle.
Turns out a queen wasp thought the rolled up hammock under the grape vines
was an excellent spot for her new colony. So, we ended up only clearing out
2/3 of the green house for now. The exterminator is coming Friday.
Lettuce and spinach
Yesterday was the big wisdom-teeth-pulling-day.
I got some relaxants before I went in and the dentist told me I might fall asleep
and wouldn't remember anything. Clearly she had never met an insomniac.
The first tooth came out quickly but the second one was a pain. The dentist
pulled and wiggled, and I felt my teeth grind and squeak, but nothing happened.
Her frustrations coupled with the drugs made me giggle in my seat.
After 20 min she called in a colleague who went at it with a different tool.
When it finally came out it turns out the root had made a hook at the end,
making it impossible to pull out without taking some flesh with it...
Despite all of that I feel ok today. I had some pain and bleeding yesterday
but that's basically gone already, and I have very little swelling.
This morning I even had my usual morning coffee and toast.
I'll finish off this post with a picture of the sunset on my bedroom wall,
just to try to erase that image of bloody teeth from your minds :)
