Absolutely nothing has been going on here. I get up, go to work, get off work, make supper, do housework, walk the dogs, sit down for an hour, and then go to bed. Rinse. Repeat.

I did manage to work in the garden a little this week, but I could use a lot more time out there. I'm having an odd zucchini problem this year. To start off, I planted one zucchini plant. (I did two last year, but that turned out to be a little ridiculous, so I only did the one this year.) Something kept eating my cucumbers so I had to buy cucumber plants at the beginning of the season. Well, it turns out that the cucumber plants I thought I bought were actually zucchini plants. So, I ended up with five zucchini plants instead of the one this year. You'd think we'd be drowning in zucchinis, but all but one plant died, and the others didn't produce much before the great zucchini plague of 2006. Weird. I don't even like zucchini. I mean, I'll eat it, but this hasn't been a great hardship. I actually plant them for my mom. Zucchinis take up a lot of space and she doesn't have room in her garden.

In other edible news, I've found that working full time has magically cut down on our grocery bill. I still cook every day, so I can't blame it on that. I guess I'm just making easier recipes that have less ingredients.

That is all.
