Change of Pace

The best laid plans gwyn aft awry
The daily challenge today was to eat a meal or snack in a different place.  I decided to eat out in the backyard, as it was cooler than it had been, and sunny. First I had to change my clothes, because what I wear inside is inappropriate for outside, and then I carried my food out to the backyard and the first thing that happened was the I sat in a chair with a puddle! I didn't see the puddle--it was invisible!  Now I look like I peed my pants. The next chair also had a puddle, but smaller.I stupidly moved there, and sat in a second puddle. Meanwhile, huge black clouds came up and a persistent fly buzzed around. I noticed that my son, when he mowed the lawn, piled the grass clipping on top of the tomato plant, damaging it and breaking off some small tomatoes! I got up, unburied the tomato and pulled some weeds. The dark front continued moving in until it covered the whole once blue sky. I ate most of my lunch outside, and then came in for the final part and I think that horrid fly followed me in. Well, it was a change of pace, anyway! If I hadn't gone out, I wouldn't have rescued the the tomato plant in time!  So that's the silver lining!

Despite your serious expression in the photograph Mary you made me smile. Life just gets you like that at times!

You look thinner in the face?
