 Last night i ordered a new cellphone, a Nexus S. As Marz put it, new enough to be good for a couple years, old enough (released 6 months ago) that it's not a top dollar item. My current phone has been getting wonky, both due to age and technological obsolescence. This will be the first time since Tracphone days that I've gotten something resembling a cutting-edge new phone (first one I got with tmobile was pretty basic and Marz got the G1, when she got the Nexus One I got the G1, which is the current wonky phone). So let's hope this one lasts for a couple years. We want to avoid getting one through tmobile because that could lead to a new more expensive contract. 

The heat is not doing the garden any good. I got plenty of tomatoes and some peppers, but the cucumbers are producing nothing and the summer squash are slowly growing (replanted after vine borers took out my plants). Next year I plan to set up supports for shade cloth for when the heat gets into the 90's, that should help keep the garden healthy. I'm also learning about seasonal plants and what gets harvested when. My yukon gold potatoes have all been harvested, as have the onions and garlic. Next year I'll do potato boxes and late season potatoes. 

Monday I get to enter stuff into the county faire for Pari (4H) and myself (open class). In a little over two weeks, the kids are back in school and I'll be starting classes myself twice a week.
