The garden is growing extremely well. The tomatoes plants are touching the dogwood tree, and are toppling the cages. Three of the four varieties have tomatoes with the line exception being the Old German.
The eggplant is flowering and has two small baby eggplants on it. The jalapeño and sweet peppers are doing well. The datil peppers are starting o flower too.
Once we use the last two heads of lettuce I think I’ll plant some herbs in the front two square feet. Something low and hear tolerant (maybe oregano).
Tonight Becky and I went on our first date night in forever. Brooklyn came over and watched the kids while we went out or drinks and dinner.
Our first stop was Alchemy. It is a speak easy style bar in Midtown. The interior was dimly lit, jazz played, and the bartenders mixed delicious drinks. I had an Old Fashioned and a Flapper (bourbon with a splash of Italian fortified wine) while Becks had a Prohibition Punch. We had a great time talking and drinking and could have stated there the entire night.
For dinner we went to the Miccosukee Root Cellar. We had cheese, a flat bread pizza, and short ribs. Their beer selection was also very good and I tried one I had never had, a Tommyknocker Maple Brown Ale. The food was delicious, and the company was very good.
It was great to have a night out with Becky. We don’t get enough grown up time and we need to do it again sooner rather than later.
I went to work today and try to solider through the day. I made it until around 1:45 when I started sweating and felt like I was going to pass out. I drove home and climbed into bed where I took a two hour nap. I felt a little better when I woke up and took it easy the rest of the night. I really hope I am over this by tomorrow. Being sick absolutely sucks.
Miss Julia came down with a cold this weekend. I caught it on Sunday night, and by this morning felt terrible. Instead of waiting for a few weeks to go to the doctor’s I called them this morning and made an appointment for the both of us. I picked Jules up from the house and we made the short drive to see two of her favorites people, Dr. Deem and Nurse Debbie. Miss Julia was in a good mood and sang the Doc McStuffin’s ”Time for Your Check-Up!” song while we waited. When I tried to sing the “I Feel Better Song” she looked at me and said “Daddy, we don’t feel better yet, we’re still sick.”
We were both diagnosed with sinus infections (as usual) and prescribed some antibiotics. While waiting for the scripts to be filled at CVS Miss Julia entertained herself by reading a book and singing songs to herself. I caught her on camera and it was pretty adorable. She is always smiling and in a good mood even when she feels crummy. I wish I could be more like her in that respect.
