The storm is busy raging all around me here in my glass room. Lightning flashing north, west, east and overhead, I feel like a goldfish in a bowl, the little kid in the family with their flashlight blinking it on and off all around me. The rain is pounding down so hard I'm just waiting for it to start penetrating the glass! This has been going on for about 15-20 minutes and we're just in the middle now! It's so much fun when the lightning and the thunder are both happening right over you. TeeHee, I'm getting a rumbled butt.

Going to turn off the computer and the light, flop on the futon, and enjoy Nature's Fireworks. 'Night all!

Love a good lightening storm. And now for an ear worm:
Thunderbolts and lightning - very very frightening

Dealing with the plethora of veggies on my table and counters. Pickles started. Kimchi (cabbage) in jars for fermenting, zucchini about to be grated for zucchini fritters, corn husked and ready for blanching, juicing carrots-beets-cucumbers for a juice to drink while doing all of this.

I'm avoiding the big shopping bag of underripe apples, knowing I'll have to do something with them soon. Thankfully, I was able to gift a friend with the other big bag.

More apples to come, hopefully they'll stay on the tree till they're ripe, usually mid September. On good apple years, we get dozens of bags. I just wasn't mentally prepared for them yet.

I'm also faced with a bunch of cukes and cherry toms, though not on the same scale as CWS.

Every time my brain-voice starts to sing that in my head I see Muppets in my mind's eye!

Resetting all those stinking blinking clocks. Electricity went out again. At least it was during daylight this time. I went down to check on the two that are on oxygen, once I knew they were okay, I came right back into my apartment. I really didn't feel like dealing with all the crazies today. We have the one who since losing her sister is losing ground. It is not that we don't care, but a legal thing. The only thing we are allowed to do is call 911 should anyone need help. None of us are qualified or have the strength to help another. If we try, we could do more harm than good. She was standing in the hall yelling Hello! Didn't know where she was. It is hard to turn your back on your neighbors, but that is the way it has to be. Of course it is a holiday weekend and the office is closed.
