Things just seem to swing wildly from one extreme to another. I have tried to adjust my attitude to just go along for the ride and not care so much about the little things. I'm taking Rocky for at least one walk a day, and might increase it to twice a day if everything goes ok. There aren't many people out, although this morning I met another woman walking her dog - we were on opposite sides of a fence along the school property line, and I think we maintained a decent and safe distance. I'm beyond worrying about it any more - I think I'd rather live my life right now than wait to die!
It is going to be a beautiful, gorgeous day! The rest of the week will be in the 70's and sunny, so I'm hoping to see my tomato plants take off. My son, Steve, sent me a photo of some tiny little shoots coming up in his garden. They are such beautiful little miracles at that stage of growth. I have a garden plot that needs tilling before I can use it. I think I have a rototiller in my shed but can't get the shed door open! I also don't think I could handle the tiller, so I sent out an S.O.S. to Donald and Steve.
I was totally surprised this morning when I checked my bank account online and found an extra $1200! I really didn't think I'd get it because I'm a retired Civil Service employee, and I stayed under the old Civil Service Retirement. I've always been glad I stayed with CSRS - they certainly tried their best to get everyone to switch over to the current system which is part Social Security. I remember they were sending out thick, bound booklets just about every week to those who hadn't switched from Civil Svc retirement. That eventually did it for me - I figured they weren't going to all that trouble and expense to benefit me!
Steve and I have been messaging back and forth for a while trying to figure out what I need for my garden (stakes, tomato cages, etc.). He doesn't want me to go into the store, so I'm attempting to estimate what I need. Darn it, I know if I could just look at the stock I would find something I didn't know I would need until seeing it in the store!
When I get all the garden stuff together and in place, I'll take a photo and include it in a future blog. For now, take care and have a good day.
