Calm day, despite how I'm waiting for a big thing to be rushed out in the next 24 hours and then I will MOVE MOVE MOVE GO GO GO with the materials. But for now, I float.

I pulled out some duct tape and started to check for gaps in the screen door and found a few issues.

1. The screen for the screen door is coming loose. The string that holds in the screen is not holding in and I think it's because of constant bombardment by june bugs. We'll need to hit a hardware store to get a thicker line.

2. The slot that the door closes into has cracks in it and the cracks are preventing the door from closing properly. I'm going to need to find a replacement spline for that door. I have no idea what the term is for that bar though, the z-bar maybe? I'm just as tempted to snap off the cracked part, but that's lazy and delaying the inevitable should we move.

The weather is raining on and off. Eating the last of the biryani and I realized that I really could use a more flavorful playfulness with the flavor mixing.

Cooking
I wanted to try again with the pad thai now that I have all the proper parts. Now I added the cilantro and really chunky peanut butter and more eggs. The result is better; much better! Well outside of the sand from poorly washed cilantro. I may make this a regular thing now. I did forget to add lemon juice, though. I'll still mark it a success. I know at least if I can toy with this formula a little more, I can make a proper drunken noodle for once.

Gardening
Spread the plant food into the outside planter where I put some dill seeds, coriander, and basil. We'll see how it goes. Also set up some pods for some squash and watercress. Again, we'll see.

I'm hoping the plant food in the indoor planter is going to succeed. The tomatoes inside are doing decently enough, so I'll see if I can set up some cages soon enough. I think they're ready. I'd like to do it while the weather is still wet so either today or tomorrow.

Amazing, a short post for once, huh?
