Still taking it easy. The pain in my shoulder seems diminished. Greatly diminished. And now that the extreme heat is over — yesterday's high was only about 80ºF — it's much easier to relax. I'm still trying to limit my typing and mousing.
Here's the view out a downstairs window. The nice thing about the vineyard is that it stays emerald green even when most of the grass is parched to a golden brown by the hot sun. The ground is "superficially dry" — meaning it absorbed a lot of water over the first half of the year, even though it seems powdery dry right now. There's a lot of water under the surface that the grapevines, with their deep roots, can tap into.
