Another project done! – We aren’t “stone lovers” in a landscape. They are more difficult to work with if you want to change any plants and weeds still get through. However they are places where they serve a purpose. We put stones around a fully grown tree which would have been difficult to get a groundcover to grow under. The tree had a lot of suckers and we’re hoping this will help keep them down. The beloved husband finished the project earlier this week between rainstorms and high heat. We will put pachysandra around the perimeter and under the nearby bushes to soften the harsh stone look.
The best things are free – We had a slow melancholy rain earlier in the week. While enjoying the rhythm in my screened porch I heard music. Loud music. With just the right weather, the clouds trap sounds and we can clearly hear concerts at a venue nearby. Doesn’t happen all the time but it happened last week. It was so nice. Feet propped up. Drink by my side. Swaying to the music!
You know you are getting old when those stray chin whiskers are turning white. Yikes! The good news is that they are light and not as noticeable. The bad news is that they are wiry, curly and get long. They need to be plucked.
Routines change – With my gym closing, I’m changing my daily routines. I’m flexible and look forward to new opportunities but there is a sadness as there are some folks I won’t see regularly. The only thing that’s constant is change. My morning mocha latte will not change! No way, no how.
It’s been shipped – Really? I’ve been noticing that when I order on-line, I will get a notice that it’s been shipped with a tracking number. They advise to wait 24 hours before you check and there’s a reason for that. The notice does not mean that anything has shipped. It may not even be packed. Recently I bought something that didn’t ship until 3 days after I received the “it’s been shipped” notice. I don’t care but let’s be upfront about it.
So how was your week?
