I did look around the garden today and I have to say that my shoe gardening isn't working out too well. I am guessing it is all the rain we've had or the hot temps. I dunno. Looks like I will need to replant and perhaps I don't use succulents again.
For the first time ever, I saw a Roseate Spoonbill standing on something. Typically they are working the waters of the retention pond or standing beside the pond. Until today I had never seen one perch.
Crockpotting again. Have three going right now. Making chicken adobo, beef paprikash, and a ham & wild rice soup. This will feed us all week and will have dishes to share with MIL who really can't do much cooking anymore. The bill at the grocery store today was $44. Not bad, I say. It took me a long time to really use slow cookers but now I am hooked. Notice the modern girl cook here - have to have my laptop in the kitchen for recipes, lol.
