Well, the mosquitoes have officially declared war making it difficult to spend time outside. Today is the first day since I’ve been here that I’m on high hazard. Finally, I feel like I have a reason to be here. This morning, a couple on horses came for a visit. Scared the poop out of me. And the Omnivore’s Dilemma has solidified my decision to return to almost vegetarianism with one stipulation – if it’s local and organic or wild, I’m in. No more factory farmed meat for me. Everyone should read this book. I haven’t even finished the first section yet, all about corn and fossil fuels and beef. Gross.  Anyway, here are some pics going back a ways now that the internet reception is smoother.

June 20 – new shower with pump installed by keith. i get to test out the first one in the district. still have to heat the water on the stove, but it’s an improvement on the bucket.

June 21 – summer solstice sunset.

June 22 – the enemy manning up and attempting to infiltrate the fortress

June 23 – rainy day sunset

June 24 – moldy broccoli. must be almost time for grocery day. i hate losing produce to the rot.

June 25 – slimy lettuce brings back bad memories from my first year cooking for treeplanters. salvage what you can. why is it that everything fresh seems to die at once?

June 26 – bottle of false hopes. not a strong enough weapon.

June 27 – time for more toxic measures. still no match for the enemy.

June 28 – latest embroidery

 June 29 – Uno calendario nuevo en espanol

June 30 – when there’s no fires to fight, there are fires to light. a crew gets rid of some brush in my yard.

July 1  – a postcard on it’s way out to a fellow tower friend
