It’s 75 degrees out, I have an iced espresso, I am laid out on a cedar glider in the shade looking at the front lawn I mowed this morning
pictured on the right; our terrible neighbors newly seeded lawn which has a whole sprinkler system despite both us and our other neighbors having perfectly green lawns without any watering, because we live in literally the most temperate and evenly-rainfall'ed part of this whole country
the bucket is for dandelions
what are we all listening to this morning
personally i am listening to the 1982 album "home again" by jazz saxophonist stanley turrentine (this was the album I put on when i said i was gonna listen to some bad jazz earlier)
Now with special guest!! Unsure about bad jazz
