Friends, friends, friends – After a brutal winter with lots of cancellations, I am spending time with friends I haven’t seen in a while. It’s nice to reconnect and catch up. For me it’s always amazing how much time has gone by since I met them. Children are grown. Grandkids pop up. Parents pass. Time flies. Of course I remain the same!
Beware of what you print – I have new readers! In last week’s random 5 I talked about the one volunteer red day lily that the deer have not found and eaten. The deer read my blog. That lily along with several of the surrounding yellow ones which they don’t normally eat, were gone that night. From now on I’ll be editing this blog to be sure there is nothing that I don’t want the deer to know.
Lagging energy – We have been in this house 13 years. There are a few rooms that should be repainted. In the past, that was always exciting. It’s a chance to update colors and try new ideas. Nowadays it’s more like, how can I clean this to get another year out of it. Perhaps if I start small, maybe with the back hallway, I will get the spirit.
On the other hand – I wish I could blow out my kitchen to create a more open area. Of course I could, but I’d like to do it with minimal dirt and money. I already know that never works. The smallest projects are annoying and expensive, let alone knocking out walls or whatever it would take. Some dreams do better on the back burner at least until we win the lottery.
Beauty – This is a wonderful time of the year. Many perennial flowers start their bloom in June. Rain has been ample. Deer have not yet trampled everything. Grass is green. It’s a great time to enjoy the great outdoors.
So how was your week?
