I’ve been so busy this past few days, it’s been hard to squeeze in this week’s WordPress photo challenge. The rule was to take a photo of “today” and post it on my blog. The problem is, by the time I got to the end of Friday, I didn’t take a single picture. By the end of Saturday, I found myself pictureless once again.
On Sunday my kids spent the day with their dad and I had planned to work on several work projects that were due early this week. I’ve signed myself up for several work projects recently, quite a few more than I usually handle at once. But I can’t complain since the work is really interesting, the clients are nice and the pay is always welcome. I’d love to have some free time to build up my photo blog, which I just started last week, but it can wait for now.
I ended up working over four hours straight on Sunday to complete three big items on my work to-do list. The intellectual labor was intense but it felt good to cross things off at the end. To reward myself, I decided to have dessert for lunch (it was past 2pm anyway) and I stopped by Dairy Queen for a delicious banana split. Doesn’t it look yummy? Have you ever had dessert for lunch or dinner? If not, you should try it sometimes, it’s delicious!
Of course, you could say I technically took this photo “yesterday” but it was in the “today” moment. I just didn’t have the time to post it until today. To be fair to the WordPress weekly challenge, I just took more photos of “today”, the real today, as in, just now.
I’m working hard at growing cherry tomatoes in my backyard. I first tried growing tomato seeds, but they took forever to get going and stayed tiny. Here’s how “big” (read small) they are now, two months later.
Not very impressive, huh? By now they should have reached the top of the support, but I doubt they’ll get there. I’ll be lucky if I can get a dozen tomatoes out of them this summer. Fortunately I also bought a number of small tomato plants a month and a half ago. Some of them are growing nicely, but take a look at these … er, I’m not sure what to call them. Mutant tomato plants? They’re at least five feet tall! I can see a few green tomatoes forming and considering the size of these plants, I hope we get to eat tomatoes all summer.
Are you growing fruit or vegetables for yourself and your family?
