It's been a bizarre couple of weeks. Exploding bottles, several astronomy events and the return of the dreaded sinus infection. I don't know if any of y'all drink kombucha (I don't) but the bottles can explode. Linda had a bottle in the fridge at the observatory and it exploded. Literally. I heard a muffled whump and went looking. I finally checked the fridge and this stuff and broken glass was everywhere. What a mess. The seeds in that stuff stick to everything and are impossible to cleanup. Oh, and did I say it stinks. Last week Linda decided she was going to have some as an evening cocktail. When she started to open the bottle it went off. Luckily she wasn't hurt but the kitchen was a disaster. That stuff went everywhere. The pots and pans, light fixture, fridge, microwave, stove, oven, cabinets and ceiling were coated. We're still cleaning it up.
Then my sinus infection came roaring back. I called the doctor thinking I could get another round of antibiotics, but no. I had to go see the NP the next day. She poked and prodded and agreed I needed the heavy duty antibiotics and an antibiotic shot to get things going. The nurse came in a few minutes later with a syringe and I started to roll up my sleeve. She just smiled and told me to drop my pants and bend over the examination table. WTH. I haven't had a shot in my butt since I was a child. At least she was cute.
I have a color and black and white versions of a gnarly root and tree at the base of a waterfall for you today. Let me know which version you like or if you don't like either.
