Purpose and Randomness





From the Garden we have tomato, chili, mint, basil, and watermelon.
The first watermelon was eaten, so maybe I can get a photo of the next one later today.






A bouquet of blossoms, chili, mint, and basil.







































This was the project of the week.
We have been working on installing bifold doors in the library.















The opening needs retrofitting, so the second door is taking longer than expected.
So far, my spouse has removed trim, sanded, filled-in, sanded again, and painted once.








Chia Seed for Health
I have not tried the paste, but it may be better, because it is similar to eating poppy seeds.
They get between your teeth.  I would read about them before sprinkling them on food.
I've also had it in a spread that a friend made.

  5. I love seeing all of your veggies. I keep thinking about putting veggies in my raised garden but I don't think it is going to happen. I have a feeling roses are going in. Don't you just love summer? I put chia powder in my morning green drink. They are so good for you.

  10. Wow food from the garden already! We're a ways off up here from being able to do that. Projects are more fun when they don't lead to those extra details like re-doing trim. The louver doors look great (not so fun to paint)!

    1. You are right, Liz. Amazingly, this are pre-painted, not primed, and the white on them is an excellent match. xoxo

  12. Your garden bounty looks wonderful.

    By this time in my retirement, I had planned to have a wonderful vegetable garden, but I did not expect a drought. Maybe next year I will have gorgeous food from the garden like yours.

    1. Thank you, Magali. We are really lucky here in regards to tomato; we can grow them from seeds or seedlings for about nine months of the year. It doesn't mean I always have tomato, but I have them for many months. xoxo

  19. Lovely fruit and herbs! I can't really tolerate seeds of any kind, unfortunately. I have tried chia seeds but they don't like me too much. I bet the paste is delicious! xo Jen
