9:32am: Nica's Dream...
We bought a lilac bush, tomato plants, and hot pepper plants at a local nursery yesterday. I hadn't planned on a garden, being a few weeks later than usual this year and I said if I'd not done so by June 1 then I wouldn't. But the plants were there and in good shape so I figured that for less than $4 for all of them, I'd give it a go. I fertilized and watered them yesterday, then watered the lawn last night because no rain was in for forecast... it stormed at 4:00am.

(Just took my first sip of coffee for the day, always a highlight :)

Musically it was a limited but good week. My local record store now has a direct distribution deal with Third Man Records so he can get its music at a good price, so I ordered a 45rpm single by the Dex Romweber Duo featuring Jack White playing "Last Kind Word Blues," a haunting number from 1930 by Geeshie Wiley. Her life was shrouded in mystery and though some second-hand stories have been told, no hard information exists of her. Paramount Records didn't take pictures of all its artists, something unheard of now, so we don't even know what she looked like. I have her original version on a couple compilation albums and though this cover was cool, hers remains singularly brilliant. I also bought a TMR album by songstress Olivia Jean, a weird mix of pop rock, alternative, singer-songwriter, and other styles I can't quite put my finger on yet. I actually played it twice in a row on the turntable.

Work was unbearably hot the first two days of the week, as last Monday hit 95° out and no one had any air systems on over the long weekend while we were gone. Work was only four days but felt like five.

I grilled steak and corn-on-the-cob last night for April, Elijah, and I. Maddie's with a friend this weekend. I cooked several small steaks and used cajun seasoning on one of mine and a Trader Joe's coffee & garlic based rub on the other. Both came out good.

The kids are on the home stretch for the school year, just one week left. Maddie had her final orchestra concerts this past week, Elijah had a field trip to the local zoo, and things are clearly winding down. 

Have a great week, all.
