8-28-07 Tuesday

It has been a long time since I posted. My good friend's husband died recently and that was sad. It has been so hot outside for the few weeks earlier that we haven't done much more on our house building, but now it is cooling (only 90 and not 100, lol) and we can get started again. Also, my husband is waiting on a job to start and he doesn't want to be in the middle of framing when they call him.

One good thing to talk about lately, though. I am now the owner of a 2008 Scion xD and I love it! It's funny that the two mechanical things I spend most of my time with (Agilent 7500ce ICP-MS and the car) are both made in Japan. I hope my car embodies the excellent workmanship that the instrument at work displays!

Not much going on in the gardens. It's been so dry and hot that the first attempt to start fall seeds failed. Neither the seeds in the ground nor the ones in pots lived for very long. But we got 1/2" of rain Friday ( I guess because the new car was being washed and fueled up for me to take home) and Saturday I planted out some carrot seeds.
