Happy Father’s Day – My Dad died when I was very young. It was very devastating personally. Here is one of the few pictures I have of him. Happy Father’s Day to all!
Finances – I recently switched banks and was looking at interest rates. I may as well put my money under my pillow. The only good thing about sticking it in a bank is that cats won’t chew on it.
Wishing and hoping – Through a combination of starting my own seeds, using a grow light and waiting to transplant until the soil warmed up, I have tomatoes on my plants. For the first time ever I may have tomatoes by the 4th of July. Then again, a groundhog may come through and wipe me out. Maybe I should get out my water pistol!
Is it just me? – Or is TV a barren wasteland this summer? I like stories, not reality or game shows. My favorites, like Rizzoli and Isles, Bones, The Mentalist and Castle are all history. There aren’t making shows like that. With the rest of my current favs on summer hiatus, I’ve been “Big Banged” to death. I’ve seen some episodes so many times that I know the actor’s lines but it always gives me a good belly laugh. Time to read.
Skeeter time — This is a bad year for bugs. Our neighbor is complaining about ticks in the grass but we have more issues with mosquitoes. In the past I’ve always been at the bottom of the mosquito’s list of yummy people. It was like the story about meeting a bear. You don’t have to outrun the bear, just the slowest person. The beloved husband is less tasty than I am so they swarm me. I don’t like to spray because of frogs, cats and other wildlife so I’ve been encouraging the same wildlife to eat the mosquitoes. Right now the frogs are too busy courting but as soon as that’s done….maybe. We are lucky as we are not in a region with mosquito-borne illnesses (unless you can categorize cranky as an illness).
So how was your week?
