Today was a crazy day. Jeremy and I have been planning since Friday to go to the beach today. Well that turned into a big fat no go.
We only live about 20 minutes from the beach, so when we go it’s not a big deal and we just get there when we get there. Around 1:00, I got everything together: towels, carrot sticks, apples, water, magazines, books, sun block. We thought we were all set. As we approached our car, a man from one of the big machines below came over to tell us we had a flat tire.
Yes, one of our four day old tires was flat. After listening to the digging, the air compressor, and even a jack hammer for most of the morning, I was really ready to go to the beach. But no dice. Jeremy used our little mini-air compressor to fill up the tire enough to get us to the gas station. When we got there he filled it up more, and we drove to the tire place. They say there’s nothing wrong it, and they better be right. Maybe it’s the constantly fluctuating temperature that made it go flat. I just hope it doesn’t happen again.
At this point I thought maybe we could still go to the beach. But the sky was looking a bit dark. I checked the weather on the BB: Severe thunderstorm warning. That’s Jeremy’s BB case, mine is much cuter.
It did thunder, lightning, and rain for oh about 20 minutes, but by that point we were already at home. To make the best of it, I took my camera out in the yard to try to get some shots. Before I went out, I made a cup of “Mid-summer Nights Dream” tea from Portsmouth Tea Co. I am trying, trying to learn to use my camera. It would be nice to have a mentor though.
Early dinner tonight BLT’s with pesto mayo and a side salad.
Behold the New Hampshire plate; it came from a thrift store. Whenever you see it, it means the dishwasher is totally full and not finished running yet. Time for our walk before Secret Life of the American Teenager.
Do you have plates you only use when all the other plates are gone?
