Happy anniversary to my brother and his wife. Yesterday was 62 years of mostly bliss!
Look away one minute – Since early March I have been raising a few tomato plants. I prefer to raise my own because the varieties I like aren’t always available. Just as I was ready to plant, I had them sitting on a table on the patio adjusting to the outdoors. Within an hour a groundhog came and snapped one up for lunch. I didn’t grow extras this year.
Missing the familiar – During this time of “stay in place” orders, I’ve been trying to embrace the normal and routine when I can. It’s been hard to do. Changes happen all the time. This week we had a huge tree cut that we put in 17 years ago. It was beautiful and gave dappled sunlight but it became troublesome. It outgrew its space and towered over the house. We had to have it pruned every other year plus every wind storm brought down a ton of branches. I was surprised at how affected I was by cutting it down. I miss that old tree.
Going with the good news – Our area, despite being very hard hit, will be lifting some restrictions the first week in June. We will continue to be cautious and some of the more “touchy” businesses won’t be open yet. I’d love our mall to open for walking. You can do that safely. We’ll see what happens.
Good pizza! – That is something I’m missing. I need good pizza! Fresh and hot and luscious!
So how was your week?
