I can’t recall a moment in my lifetime at once so exciting and completely anguished. SpaceX launched the Dragon Endeavor successfully yesterday with two American astronauts aboard, and today docked at the International Space Station.

the tomatoes are exploding
so are the herbs
last night’s grilled chicken supper
hanging baskets are in
The Chef replaced the two dead arbor vitae this afternoon
Scout got in trouble with me today for rolling in squirrel poop instead of coming when I called
his sullenness was forgotten at suppertime, when there was grilled salmon; this is grilled salmon face
