Ducks, Storms, Revisions and Mango Salad
Things I learned yesterday:
1) Our ducks are freaking terrified of umbrellas. When I ran out during yesterday's storm to get them into their house, Kate and Deiter started flapping all over the yard, honking loudly. Kate didn't realize the coop door was closed and crashed into the glass. Deiter ran in circles then tried to hide under the shed. I put the umbrella down and all was fine. WT???
2) Revising a manuscript can make it even more of a mess than whatever you started with. Enough said.
3) The green mango salad in Martha Stewart's FOOD magazine this month is excellent. I recommend adding some chopped sweet onion or jicama for extra crunch.
4) After a storm, you sometimes get treated to a really amazing sunset.
