Hump Day Holla: The Garden Porn Edition

Yo, dudes, there is a dearth of dullness going on at Casa Bunny. Yep. You know me. It's either a feast of fun or a bevy of boredom (but, damn, am I GOOD at that alliteration! can I get a job just coming up with alliterative phrases?? I would ROCK!).

I, mean, the most exciting thing to rock our world this week was the snake, which, for all my big 'ol baby friends who said they wouldn't come over 'til it was gone, seems to have gone onto greener pastures since it has not been spotted since Sunday.

Monday I spent ALL DAY, literally, searching and applying for jobs. I applied for 15 POSITIONS! 15! I swear, if I don't get at least ONE interview, I am giving up and selling a kidney on Craigslist and calling it a day. Or joining a commune. Or something. There are jobs out there, but HOW THE HELL you get hired for them eludes me. Seriously. I know these companies hundreds of resumes, but you would think I could get ONE interview. ONE. I need a new tactic I think. But I am not sure what that would be.

Yesterday, I took the Pepster to the vet for her annual shots and such ($ka-ching!$) and we wound up putting her on arthritis meds because she has been super gimpy lately. I hope it helps, but it ain't cheap. $1.70 a tab. Seriously. Luckily, she doesn't need a whole pill and not every day. See?? Everyone over here at Casa Bunny is getting old and sad.

Last night, I rounded up a few friends to go listen to a local singer-songwriter at the nearby cantina. We had a good time and held the rowdiness down to a dull roar. We shall go back again in a month-ish--maybe it will be to celebrate my new job.

So, other than that, all I gots is some fresh garden porn. Here is the latest:

This shot of K.K. is priceless. She likes to lay in the shady daylily bed to nap and I caught her coming out of the bed, in mid-yawn. I actually took this last week, before her shave, but forgot to post until now.

I just think this up close shot is stunning. The color. The form. I lurves it.

There are TONS of blossoms all over my cuke plants. We gonna be rollin' up in some cukes soon. Very soon.

Like enough to make pickles. I picked two more today. Whee. If only my tomatoes were starting to go to Fruit Town.

These are my newly planted cherries which seem to be doing well so far. I will have to split them up soon if they keep going like they have been.

Here are my teardrop yellow cherry tomatoes, finally making some fruit. A few is better than none, I suppose.

My orange cherries are still doing okey-dokey. They are making some new fruit--again, not much, but some.

Here is an artsy-ier angle, for those of you who appreciate the artsy.

And my romas are finally putting out a few green fruits, as well. I actually called the Extension Office this morning to ask what the hellz I could do for my 'maters, and they did not know. Apparently, everyone's tomatoes are doing shitty--I was told they are "shocked" from all the rain after a long drought. WTF?? Well, hell, I am shocked at all the time and money I have spent on tomatoes and yet I don't have any. I just hope the next few weeks will bring them around.

Well, I am off for Wednesday afternoon pool with Bobs. It's the high point of my week lately. A little breather from the stress of my sad life. So, later taters! Love, Bunch
