or swear words? I think it all depends upon your week. 🙂
This past week, I used several colorful words to emphasize how life was going. I won’t bore you with all the details, but I definitely said a couple of incident specific words the day I heard, shingles, and I wasn’t in the roofing department at Home Depot.
On the positive side, we picked our first pint of sun gold cherry tomatoes. We also harvested almost five pints of raspberries in one day, which was definitely a record haul. The raspberry plants are done for the year, have been pruned, the ground raked clean of any debris, and they are on vacation until next year.
The flowers are big and boisterous right now. The butterfly bushes and the oak leaf hydrangeas smell wonderful and are like pollinator magnets. The day lilies are still producing, and the echinacea, brown eyed susans, and phlox are ramping up.
If you want a real chuckle, picture me trying to take these photos or visiting my very favorite quilt store trying to pick out fabric for a future project – glasses on, glasses off. 🙂
When about all you are doing is reading and you live close to the water, picking a nice spot for a picnic is high on the list. Hilton Park at Dover Point, which technically is the oldest continually occupied spot in the state, is only a few minutes from home. It has views of the old General Sullivan Bridge, picnic tables in the shade, and there are plenty of birds and a nearby marina with lots of boat traffic. What’s not to like.
Have I read any mysteries I’d recommend? Sure: Lee Child’s, Jack Reacher, No Middle Name, Michael Connelly’s, The Late Show, Alex Kava’s, Damaged, Archer Mayor’s, The Company She Kept, and James Patterson’s, Murder Games.
Here’s sincerely hoping you all have a medical free week and are out there doing whatever it is that floats your boat or puts money in the bank. Enjoy. 🙂
