I'm not sure if that was breakfast or lunch. I guess it depends if I eat again before dinner.
Off to buy my Tostitos for tonight's dinner shortly.
I'm just sitting down to a crimini mushroom and gruyere omelet and I know that's breakfast because I plan to eat before dinner.

It looks better without it and it would probably get damaged by winter.

The law requires that we have a lifeguard on duty any time anyone goes in the pool.
We have a fence around our pool too, along with a locking gate. And now we have motion-activated lights. Kids used to climb over the fence all the time.

The county tried to make us require a lifeguard, along with all sorts of safety equipment, but we were under the number of people that would justify all that.

Gruyere cheese in an omelette... that's just decadent.

Now I'm looking at one of those wasps with the real skinny part between the abdomen and the thorax wondering how he got in-between the screen and the window. What is it with my house and insects that sting...

Computer problems have been solved. This time when the problem happened everyone was here to witness it. The power supply box was going. It finally went with gusto last night. Don't you just love those A-HA! moments when your right? This one is much quieter. Haven't yet been dissed off the net. Knock wood.

They're probably attracted by the bacon.

I may be wrong, but I believe those are solitary wasps and usually female. They eat nectar from flowers and kill insects and stuff to feed their babies.

I opened the window and the screen and it flew away. Fortunately in the right direction.

We get them here too, in the strangest places.

Glenn and I just returned from a 9-day northern Minnesota vacation. Beautiful and restful. No Internet. No nothing but beautiful scenery and perfect weather.

I've finally finished cropping and editing the 65 pictures we took. I somehow managed to miss packing our good camera and ended up having to use the one in my cell phone. It took surprisingly good photos. I'll share a few here.

The first one is the lakeside of my aunt and uncle's log home. Fabulous house. We hated to leave.

The second one is what they see from the big windows. The lake is pristine and only a few feet from the house. They have a gorgeous sandy path about 100 feet long that leads to the water.

The last one is of the water. What you're viewing is a portion of the water about 2- to 3-feet deep near the dock. It's as clear as drinking water. Unbelievable.
