Watering the trees

Not that she hasn’t been told not to repeat this stunt, but below our windows are just trees and rarely anyone walks, so I’m not too worried that anyone got an unpleasant surprise. That said, it’s been so incredibly hot here that I suspect on some levels it would be a quite welcome surprise!

We had another long evening swimming, so I made a quick stir-fry for supper with lots of okra in it. Caitlin hates okra and is out for the evening, so I took advantage of the opportunity to cook it. She’d warned Nefarious yesterday that it was an utterly revolting vegetable, so when Nefarious took her first “review” bite, she confirmed that it was terrible… However, after that, I noticed that she picked out all the okra and happily ate it before everything else — kids do like eating snot after all — and admitted that she did like it but that it would be best if I didn’t reveal that to Caitlin.

    I think Nefarious is quite probably performing a much needed public service (to both thirsty trees and hot people)!

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
