Once again, with feeling!

OK, we’re trying the dog thing again.  I think this time we have a keeper.  Allow me to introduce Elijah Seraphim, “Eli” for short.  He is some kind of a mutt, we think perhaps Boston Terrier and something.  He’s brindle with 2 white stockings on his front legs.  He behaved very well at Petco today, accompanying me and 2 of the chics (oldest chic is at camp this week) on a shopping trip to purchase a harness, a portable kennel for camping, and a raincoat.  He is mainly girlchic’s doggy.

In other news, the garden is off and running.  There are blooms on 2 of the watermelon vines; I cannot count the tomatoes.  Beans are climbing their strings and I can see the beginning of buds – yay!  The corn is nearly up to my thighs (it was knee-high on June 6).  I also have herbs – basil, anise, thyme, rosemary, oregano, cilantro and lavender.  Oh, and hyssop, peppermint and spearmint in the flower bed by the back door.

I thought of something quite profound last night at around 11 p.m. on which to write, but of course my train of thought has been derailed several times since then.  I only remember that it had to do with the gnostic traditionalism article in the new issue of NOR.  Rats!

  1. No doubt your late night profound thoughts will return & you will once again be able to enlighten the masses on the blogosphere about it! At least, I do hope you will! ;o)
