I needed a ‘bummed out’ blogging break last week, but I’ll save you the explanation and just say it was life as we now know it.
Outside I kept busy doing my usual – weeding, watering, transplanting, still trying to evict the skunks, and working on expanding our veggie area. The cucumbers croaked from the heat, but the tomatoes are filling up every shelf in the kitchen.
We’re having another heat wave and are under drought restrictions so everywhere you look it’s brown grass and a lot of perennials closing up shop for the season.
Inside, I worked on a couple of small sewing projects, cleaned more closets, and painted a Welcome sign. I had to chuckle that I was painting a ‘welcome’ sign when we’re in a time of no visitors. Maybe I was feeling rebellious or was very bored – probably both. 🙂
I kept busy, but have to admit that I can’t tell which day it is because each one drifts into the next.
A medical office receptionist asked me a brand new Covid-19 question last week – had I traveled out of the three state area (NH, VT, ME) in the past three weeks? If so, I needed to postpone the appointment, or if I was planning to, I needed to cancel the appointment and reschedule for three weeks after I returned.
It would be easier if the new rules of life were the same, but it appears I can’t travel to any of the other 47 states without quarantining, but I could go overseas and return without isolating. Hmm.
Enjoying nature at water’s edge is a really good thing.
I sincerely wish you a wonderful last week of August full of nothing but good health, sunshine, and a safe opportunity to stay in touch with family and friends.
I’ll be around, but probably not on a regular basis. There comes a point in 2020 where there is nothing remotely new to say, and I’ve definitely passed that point. 🙂
