Here, have some chocolate, feel better

Dandelion Chocolate has a superb pastry chef on staff, and they’ve started including an allergy-friendly vegan lemon poppyseed option.

So tomorrow being Father’s Day, Michelle took us into San Francisco for pastries and hot chocolate to celebrate early. We even found a parking space! We started the day off right.

Watering the fruit trees this evening, looking at the last of the sour cherries at the top and the first of the peaches coming on, the hose got caught on a rock about a foot across and it took some effort to get it off but it flipped and rolled a bit and out of the way and that was that.

Of course that means the next thing that happened was that I tripped over it because it was not where my subconscious expected it to be. You would think… This time my wrists caught me an inch or two above the ground and saved my face and teeth. No emergency dentist this time.


I have a new determination to hire someone to install a better watering system, no matter how much I enjoy my weekly evenings of taking care of my trees.

Oh goodness! I so hope your wrists aren’t too sore. Yes, you truly owe it to yourself to get a watering system set up. I’m sure your trees will understand.

Get a drip system. They can set up different watering levels for each tree, and you can either operate automatically or manually.

Please be careful … I can’t visit if you’re in the hospital!

Ooh, close call! Yes, time to put that system in. Your ability to water is replaceable, but you are not!

Bubble wrap! And a better watering system.
Please be careful.
And your Father’s Day treats look delish!

Saving my face and teeth is what broke my wrists 3 times. I hope your wrists are ok–falling and catching yourself that way is the most common cause of broken wrists. That was too close for comfort for you–the last thing you need is a bad fall!A hose is a very dangerous animal, you know.
