If you blog, the blinking cursor is a reminder that trying to come up with something to write about during this pandemic is a real challenge. It’s a taunt. Hey, lady, can you come up with some words so I stop blinking. 🙂
The most important thing that happened last week was that we got rain on several days, and we sure needed and appreciated every drop.
I gardened, sewed, read two Joseph Finder books, but I found myself touching up trim paint for something to do. Yeah, I’ve gone through the usual list of things to do and am really reaching.
One thing we’re doing every day is picking raspberries. We’re getting one to two pints per day. Good eating and freezing.
The hydrangea, hosta, day lilies, and even the Yukon Gold potatoes are all starting to bloom, and the pollinators appreciate that.
They’re on their own out there, but in most cases they survive. When I was dumping some weeds I noticed this native day lily peeking up through a pine tree. I had to stop and admire its tenacity. You go girl!
Of course, traipsing around in the pucker brush trimming nasty thorny locust trees, dumping weeds, and pulling Virginia Creeper and Oriental Bittersweet does have its issues because now I’m dealing with some poison ivy on my leg. Oh well, a hazard of gardening.
This week is starting off with a trip this morning to the library to pick up a book. A real trip where I walk in one door, mask on, pick up my book, and exit through another door. Who knew a trip to the library could be such an event. After that, I do have to visit a big box store to replenish some supplies, and that I’m not looking forward to because a lot of folks will not be wearing masks.
So, off we go into the second week of July. You won’t find me at a bar, restaurant, movie theatre, or political rally, but I am working on getting a hair cut and a battery put in a computer. You will find me hanging around home still looking forward to the day I can hug my grandkids even if they are young adults and don’t need that hug near as much as I do. 🙂
Stay well out there. ❤️
