Enough with the vinegar – We try to be as environmentally safe as possible here. We use a vinegar-salt mix to kill weeds and it’s effective. However, it smells like salad dressing for a while. I was on the screened porch while the beloved husband was spraying. I got a craving for salad. Wonder what that was all about. #bellyuptothesaladbarsaidnooneever
A weather predictor – We had a hot week with evaporation on the pond. I decided to top it off to cover some rocks. It wasn’t much. It rained an hour later. Buckets of rain! I could have saved myself the trouble. #murphyslaw
Where’d everyone go? – It seems that families take vacation as soon as the kids get out of school. This past week has been very quiet. Traffic was almost non-existent. Even Starbucks was slower than usual. Not complaining. It’s a vacation from people for me! #lesspeoply
Silver linings to being sick – I’ve read five books in the past week. I often don’t read that in a year. Once I got in the groove, I didn’t want to do anything else. I wonder how long I can milk this “sick” thing. #fakingit
Anticipation – I’m gearing up for my family reunion. I’m hosting this year. There is always something going on and way too much food. We don’t get together often. Some of the people I only see at the reunion but I enjoy them. It’s a great family to be a part of. Not everyone can say that. It’s at my house in a month so a lot can happen until then. I hope the weather cooperates. I’d love a perfect day. #whatcouldpossiblygowrong
So how was your week?
