Well I missed the AM yoga class so my next options are either 6pm or 730pm. Neither one sounds like it will work out for me so that might have to wait til morning!

I did get all the shopping done, THAT was more of an ordeal than I thought it would be, Laundry is nearly done and there is a pot of soup on the stove and BLTs all prepped.

I may not have any tomato plants in a minute. We just got nailed with a HUGE hailstorm! Golfball sized hail! HOLY CRAP!

I'm waiting for a pizza delivery. I was going to make Harry's Spicy Pork Ball Rendang, but I got a headache and I'm not up for cooking. I brought the car to the garage, because she stalled for no good reason, again. She wouldn't do her trick for the mechanic and she lied to the computer and said nothing happened. I'm supposed to drive a bunch and call on Monday.

I got a bunch of specialty grocery shopping done. I got kaffir lime leaves, lemon grass, Scotch bonnet peppers, fish sauce (Squid brand - "contains no squid", it had the least sodium - 1400mg/ 15mg/tblsp , and nothing but water, anchovies, and salt), 7 spice powder, and rosehip tea and hibiscus tea. I also got my currently favourite coffee: Lavazza Rossa and Lavazza decaf.

I guess it's spicy pork ball (or maybe beef) rendang tomorrow.

Wow, Alix, that is wild!
We were supposed to get rain today but at the moment it is really warm and sunny. I will try to send some your way!

That's impressive Alix. How did the tomatoes hold up?

The monster tomato plants are unscathed. Its still storming pretty bad so I've not been out to check the ones furthest from the door. Crossing my fingers!

It is. There isn't a month in the year when I haven't seen snow or hail or some kind of icy stuff falling from the sky here.

Only two casualties of the hail. Two big green tomatoes got knocked off the vines. I brought them in to sit on the counter.
