Friends and Kitties!
Quite unexpectedly I had a mini-vacation last week, on the spur of the moment I took two days off along with my weekend for a four day extravaganza of busyness and sloth! Many small errands and chores were accomplished, as well as a couple of naps (with cats, of course) and daily read-a-thons;* I plowed through three books.
We're back to sticky monsoon weather but this go-round hasn't been quite so hot. I was outdoors today at work doing the 100-meter mosey out to the filters and I was sort of chilly in the wind--it was only 85 F and I had goosebumps! I've decided that anything below body temperature is too cold. We've gotten only a quarter inch of rain this summer for our corner of the valley, and so far this monsoon has been a bust. I'm not complaining though, some areas got such severe wind, rain, and hail that giant trees got uprooted! It's amazing, all the various microclimates around the valley. One of the fun things to do at work (besides actual labor--anything but that!) is comparing weather notes with co-workers--even two miles away there's completely different weather during the "rainy" season.
At least I have something to do indoors for the next week while I'm avoiding the sticky weather; the Yearly Harvest at Almosta Farm has begun! Scott got his plants in early this year and they are ready to be trimmed and dried. Like tobacco, marijuana improves in taste and potency with curing, properly done it can take up to three months to completely cure an entire plant's yield. There's skill involved in trimming buds too, and patience to remove all the chaff (keif) without over-handling the flowers. Nevada finally passed legislation to allow dispensaries for medical marijuana to operate and it will be nice to not have to worry all summer if Scott will have a good harvest or not, that there will be a back-up available. Especially since his appointment with the pain management
doctor quack was a total bust. Frankly, the man was an arrogant asshole...but that's a story for another day.
Anyhoo, I expect to be pretty occupied after work for the next week or so, so please don't panic if you don't see a Katnip post every day...hopefully I won't be too busy at work to get around a do a bit of visiting, *wink wink*!
Happy Sunday, and have a Wonderful Week!
