I wanted to include this photo in my last blog, but couldn't get it to work. I will post it here, but it certainly isn't the best photo I've ever taken. I keep saying I want to go back to a regular camera, but when I tried it I couldn't navigate through all the steps to simply snap a picture. Why, oh why, do things have to be so complicated. I think they do it on purpose to make people my age feel dumb! And I refuse to feel dumb! (Click on photo to enlarge.)
I think we are going to have a week in the 80's and then drop back to the 70's & 60's. I'm anxious to see what is going to do well in my garden, as most of the plants are cool-weather varieties. The grass in my garden is growing spectacularly, and I need to get out there and pull it before it's an overwhelming job. When I look out the back door and see it, I feel overwhelmed already!
I've noticed that in the past several years I crave sweets more than ever before. I've always preferred salty foods, but something happened to me. Today I watched a couple of programs that say sugar is not healthy for the brain, and lord only knows, I want to hold on to as much brain power as I can. I already find that I can't keep a thought in my head for over a minute or two and then it flies off into the wild blue yonder! It's going to be hard to do without ice cream, but I'd rather retain my memory!
Here's to a good week ahead for us all. I am thinking about the folks in the Dallas area who have been affected by the tornado yesterday, and hope they can start the recovery process soon.
OLD IS NEW AGAIN
