Good grief it’s July! – I remember last year July flew by in a blur. This year I am working to live “in the moment.” I love summer and it always seems like the shortest season, especially July.
Fresh local corn! – Finally, we got the first this week. The beloved husband was over the moon. Corn is his main vegetable. It’s in his top 5 favorite foods (does beer count?). It was as wonderful as we hoped. Going to the farm stand was nostalgic too. My tomatoes are large and prolific but not green. Soon. I have visions of tomato juice running down my arms as I eat a tomato sammich.
Calling all bloggers – Lately I’ve been getting some strange comments on my blog. It’s someone new (Gravatar is a photo of a young handsome man but I wonder what they really look like) interested in getting to know me. Personally. They want me to email them and see where this goes. (Probably with my bank account numbers) Somehow getting hit on at this age riles up all sorts of bad consequences. Ain’t going nowhere!
Urgent need – I’m not good at begging for money but I’ve received several pleas from my local animal shelters seeking funds. This is a very busy time especially for no-kill shelters. It’s kitten season for one. Most shelters put kittens down. They are very labor intensive and expensive to rescue. Imagine a little one that needs to be hand fed every few hours. Not many are willing to make that commitment. If you can, please donate to your local shelter. They seriously need the funds and most of them are staffed by (exhausted) volunteers. Even a little amount helps.
To the Canadian readers – Happy 150th anniversary! Awesome!
So how was your week?
