Well, what's up is ... me, alas. Nightmares. Ugh.
Today's agenda? Lots of yard work. Several plants here cannot be touched without special attention to gloves used, so I'll deal with those and then the laundry that has been looming larger all week. Rake up my compost pile. Hide under a bed. Y'know, the usual. Chores chores chores ow.
Lobster was once a poor man's food.
Cardinals, the iconic red bird of much of North America, can comein pink or yellow, instead of true white albinism. I currently have a male in my yard who has irregular white splotches in his feathers, a bit of leucism, I suspect. he's thriving along and has a mate, so no worries for him.
You may, however, someday see albino cardinals ---- or other birds. It's an interesting fact that leucism and albinism occur most often in brown and red birds than in those that are basically eyllow (canaries, goldfinches).
Cats that live to 30 years are the human equivalent of 165 years old. Yikes.
So what's a gourd versus a squash? We eat squashes, and tend to not eat gourds. (They're useful for other reasons ----- when dried and hollowed out, they make excellent containers.) Soft-rinded squashes include yellow squash and zucchini; hard-rinded edibles include pumpkin, spaghetti squash, butternut squash. Most gourds (the ones grown for decoration only) are toxic, so don't try 'em.
Technically, a watermelon isn't a melon ------ it's a fruit. That is one big-a** fruit. (Like tomatoes that way. Technicalities!)
Meanwhile, I'm off to face the day. Lovely weather but no sleep last night. Doesn't it just figure?!
HUGS and healing purrs to all.
Oh, y'all... Yinz... however you want me to say "you" collectively... (Ustedes? Ihr? Wy?)We might get a new fridge by Christmas. (Please support the needed infrastructure at our ports. If the recent backups at LA don't convince, consider that this is $$$ at stake, not politics, okay? Thank you. ) I was laughed at when I asked for a repair. "You fridge is over 10 years old!"... Apparently, 10...
