Today I did a drawing of a rutabega (see above). A magic rutabega. (More on why later…) Oh. Oops– turns out I’ve been spelling it wrong, according to Mirriam-Webster. It’s rutabaga!

There is a mighty thunderstorm occurring RIGHT NOW! A beautiful summer storm, following several hours of that tinged purple sky and flashes of heat lightning. Gorgeous. (And I left the wine bar just in time so as to enjoy this storm from my front room, and not have to walk through the downpour!)

Ben is in Philadelphia for some meetings, he left this morning. I shall wake early tomorrow to catch a plane up to Rochester. Looking forward to seeing the family! And: meeting the new pup, Wolf; seeing the new barn, the redecorated kitchen, and the farm in green in general. I hope it doesn’t really rain all weekend, as I’d like to swim and go riding (horse and bike!). We’ll see. Will take lots of photos. Meantime there are a few from Fire Island up on Flickr now.
