I had my family over for dinner today. It was a good kick in the pants to get the downstairs cleaned up, too.

It was good, too. Burritos and salad, and mom made peach crisp for dessert. It was quite the smörgåsbord, with the cabbage and carrots and mango salsa and mole to add to it.

The garden is huge. The salad’s all bolting, so I’m trying to eat as much of it as I can. The nasturtiums are happy: the leaves are four inches across! I think the squash will even come out, and there’s a baby tomato on one of the plants. It’s not nearly such a good garden as last year, mostly due to lack of effort on both our parts and a lack of water from me while Carrie was gone to Quo Vadis.

After the family took off, I spent a good deal of time trying to make ruby go on the SPARC and Alpha architectures, neither of which I own working machines of to test with currently. Such fun!
