Life gets complicated sometimes doesn’t it? If you add in the normal ups and downs plus Covid, we’re left with something quite challenging.
We’ve had two losses recently. A brother-in-law passed away after a wonderful, long life, and a friend lost her husband suddenly after a recent hospital stay. As people leave your life regardless of reason, it is never quite the same.
Covid numbers have moved up on the charts here as in most states. We’re still wearing masks inside places although that is definitely not the majority choice. The way I look at it, each person has to do what feels right to them.
July delivered 15″ of rain which for sure ended our drought and brought other challenges. This is the year of the $64 tomato because tomato plants are not happy with this much water. The marigolds I always plant next to the tomatoes have died. Now, there’s a weather statement.
The flowers, however, keep on blooming and enjoying the weather.
I checked on a MG project garden last week and almost fell over. The last time a friend and I had been there, we had spread a couple of yards of what looked like beautiful mulch. That mulch must have contained weed seeds because I never, ever saw so many weeds including 5′ tall Pokeweed. How many weeds? I completely filled my truck bed and struggled to get the cover over it. I got it cleaned up, but I sure didn’t move the rest of the day.
It rained last night and could rain again this afternoon, but then we have a break for several days. That is a good thing because I want those berries to ripen, and I have a day adventure planned with a friend for tomorrow.
Life – it’s a journey, and I hope yours is going well.
