Range day

A few weeks ago, Steve and I agreed with nearby married couple Jake and Sarah that we should go to a particular shooting competition, followed by lunch at an Italian restaurant. Unfortunately, Sarah got sick.

Now, I've done damage to my right hand because I've been reviewing literally thousands of e-mails related to a lawsuit. Major carpal pain. Since Sarah couldn't go, I thought about bowing out. The match was shooting steel targets with a handgun, and even if my revolver wasn't the right tool for the job, I figured target shooting is never a bad thing to practice.

My hand didn't cooperate. My aim was pretty good, but my hands started shaking, then my right hand started to hurt something fierce. I ended up not having a great time, and my hand is now securely in a brace.

We also decided to go for Mexican food at a place called Macayo. I ordered veggie enchiladas and enjoyed them thoroughly, so that was a good thing.

I have figured that my tomato plants and herbs might not be getting enough sun, so I took them to the front patio. I now have to watch out for signs of varmints getting to them. The basil is super happy though, and the tomatoes are back from the verge of death. The seeds I planted are putting out teeny shoots. So far so good.

Going to watch some ghost shows now, and keep reading the Tammy Strobel book. I'm enjoying it, and it's making me think of how I can start carving down the debt once I start getting paid regularly. I haven't had any income of my own except for my Army pittance since early September, and so money owed is piling up. Not good, but relief is in sight.

I love Macayo. It's not super authentic but it is comforting.

Ow-ow-owwwwwwww for your hand. Hope it improves soon.

As for the ... er ... varmints (hee), what about encasing the precious plants in chicken coop wire? It shouldn't impede their growth and will make it much harder for intruders (unless they're just that smart).

Yep, chicken wire is definitely in the plans, although I need to be able to move these easily with the weather. Growing plants here is still a learning curve for me; it's not as drop-dead easy as it was in California.
