Veggies & Sore Nipples

This past Sunday we spent mostly outside.

Hotness did a lot of mowing while I was busy repotting plants into larger containers, refilling bird feeders, and stuff like that.

I'm happy to report that things are growing and seem to be doing well so far.
One of my tomatoes has "thumb-sized" fruits on it.

Now I'm just waiting for them to get larger and ripen up so's I can eat 'em!

I also put bright orange construction tape on my cherry trees.

When the wind blows, the ribbons wave around and are supposed to scare the birds.
Like so....

The last couple of years, I haven't been able to get the cherries off the tree before the birds eat them all.
This year, I'm hoping to get at least a couple of nice pies from cherries that I grew in my yard.

Other than that, things are going well.
The weather has been nice and my garden is coming along nicely.

Yesterday, when I was getting ready for work, I picked out a shirt I haven't worn often.

It was going to be a bit warm that day, so I opted to just wear the shirt and not a T-shirt underneath.
BAD IDEA!!!

This particular shirt has a nice embroidered pattern running from top to bottom on both side of it.
Unfortunately, this pattern runs right down over my hairy man-nipples and the thread they use is some sort of nylon.
So as I'm wearing the shirt, it's like having sandpaper rubbed over my nips every time I move.

I discovered my mistake about an hour after wearing it, so I tried to minimize my movements until I could break away at lunch.
As soon as it was noon, I darted out the door and over to Target to pick up some T-shirts.

Ahhhhh..... I was doing much better after there was a thin cotton barrier between me and the torture shirt.

Today I wore a much more sensible (and less pain-inducing) shirt for work.
My sore nipples are thanking me.
