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!
