I’ve been waiting for a couple weeks to try this beer.

Dumplings!

I may lack the wonton-skin-folding skills of an Asian grandmother, but these pork & cabbage dumplings were still delicious.

Fuzzy

This juvenile house finch is not quite done moulting. It’s OK, friend, nobody’s hair looks good right now.

Mislabeled

Doesn’t look fragile to me.

Mulch ado

Lis and I spent this cool, cloudy Sunday spreading 4 yards of mulch on our garden beds. 4 cubic yards of mulch seems like a lot (and it is — literally a ton, and about 30 loads of my little garden cart). But we have a lot of garden beds, some of which are new and needed a better layer of mulch to keep the weeds down. It’s a lot of work, but the end result looks great.

Hug

I ordered some spices from Penzeys. I usually go to their store, but, well, you know. Anyway, they included a free trial size of one of their seasonings, which is a nice touch. And a bumper sticker, and a hug (in coin form). Because we all need a hug these days.

Damage

Here’s an example of the kind of damage done to the wiring of our solar panels by squirrels. Click through for a worse picture of a more extreme case. The solar company was out today to fix it and install critter guards around the edges. Surprisingly, the solar array worked fine throughout, except for a few wet mornings.

It’s alive!

You may recall that Lis posted about a baby robin in the middle of our yard last week. Well, it has survived the neighborhood cats and is still with us. It’s still pretty scruffy-looking, but is being cared for by 2 adults and is able to fly short distances.

Failure

As malformed foodstuffs go, this double-long spaghetti is pretty inconsequential.
