Hot, sunny, 91 degrees outside.
Started out this morning making potato salad to go with the burgers we're having for dinner tonight. Right after that it was just suppose to be exercise in the pool for an hour, rough house in the pool for probably another hour with my son, but had to change that to just relax in the pool while my son entertained himself. A few hours before I went to step over my son, who was laying on the floor with his dog and he brought his leg up and tripped me. I was afraid I was going to step on him and ended up falling into the wall and jamming my arm real hard. I had to do it to the arm with the bad shoulder.
I'm O.K. though, it only hurts when I'm awake and breathing. UGH!!!
Finally things have started clicking for me, my knees, my elbows, my back, etc...

I got my peppers planted, and potted up some more hanging baskets. Picked up some Hyssop at the nursery and stopped for ice cream on the way home. Looks like just simple gardening left for the rest of the week, except for planting the hyssop and some peonys and lilacs that I rescued.

I didn't do much today. I did a few loads of laundry, baked a ham for supper (and made the stuff to go with it), entered several sweepstakes, goofed around on Facebook, and fumed about my bank.

I like my new user name....

I've been working on building a pompeii brick oven out in the patio. Mainly for doing pizza at 800+ degrees, it'll also be used for baking other food items once oven temp cools, including smoking at even lower temps. The oven is wood fired. The thermal mass (firebricks) and ceramic insulation under the floor and over the dome will keep the oven at cooking temps for well over 24 hours after initial firing.
