After the really tiring walk to the vet and back yesterday, Rocky and I were both exhausted. We went to bed a 8pm, and slept until 8am this morning. I've felt tired all day but have accomplished some cleaning I wanted to do. I just haven't been able to take a walk today, but I did throw a ball to Rocky, which he chases with all the energy he can muster.
The gardener came today and the back yard looks so good with the grass cut. I wish the landlady would let me water it throughout the summer so it will continue to look like this. I've written her and wait for her reply.
I was able to collect enough peas from the garden to cook some for my supper this evening. They are so good, and I hope I get a few more meals from the plants. There are lots of blossoms which I think indicates what I can expect. It's probably not worth the space for what I'm getting though. My tomato seedlings are coming along nicely. I didn't think I would get so many healthy looking plants, although they still have some growing to do before I can say how many will prosper. I planted several seeds in each cup and it hurts me to pull out and discard the smaller ones, but that will help the larger ones grow.
I will probably try to get a good night's sleep tonight, and hope I get my energy back soon. Maybe I'll take the boy on a nice walk tomorrow.
My Nook reader (from Barnes & Noble) seems to have conked out, and I ordered and received today a Kindle. I did what I could to set it up but will need Donald or Jeannie to actually finish the set-up and explain it to me. One aspect of the Nook I didn't like, and it is probably the same or worse with the Kindle, is that it isn't just a "reader" anymore. It is internet and all kinds of features I'd rather do on my computer. That's the problem with devices these days - every device seems to try to do everything. I'd prefer to use my phone for calls, messages, and photos, and my Kindle for reading books. "Everything" wants to do "everything" and it doesn't work that well for me. My kids are constantly staring at their phone, which is so multi-functional it makes me dizzy. The only upside for me is one that I hope never happens: if technology one days completely fails, I will be able to deal with events because I have never totally relied on technology in my life.
