Don't laugh, but in about an hour or so, Jeannie will pick me up and I get to ride with her to a couple of stores, where she will pick up her orders. We will stay in the car, but hey, it's an outing! The best part is that Rocky will be going to her house while we are gone so he can play with her girls!
I have been working in the garden but in short timeframes - not all at once. For one thing, it's getting hot, and the sun in blazing hot when you are out in it. The temperature is actually not too bad and there is a lovely breeze, but the sun is relentless. I've been pulling grass and preparing soil in my third plot so I can begin to plant some more veggies for the summer. Anyone would laugh at how little I accomplish at one time, but throughout a day or two I have cleared some space that I plan to sew carrot seeds among others. I also want to plant pumpkin seeds soon, so that I can give them to my grandchildren for carving this fall. But I still have a lot of work to do.
I am really so tired of this whole pandemic, but at the same time not eager to get back to the way things once were. I will be glad if we have a break without new cases, but I expect the short break to be followed by another onslaught of virus. So I won't go out and celebrate any time soon, if ever. I do hope there will be a short time that the craft brewery will be open and I can take my family for an evening out. Maybe we can even go to Straw Hat Pizza, although I often wonder if some of the places I love have gone out of business. The very worst part is that if action had been taken when it was obvious this thing was going to spread from China, way fewer lives would be lost, and way less economic stress. I will never forgive the politicians who allowed the spread of the virus until it was too late to contain it. They have blood on their hands!
I just looked up the 15 day weather forecast, and for four days next week we can expect 100, 104, 104, and 107 degrees! The saving feature is that the overnight lows will be in the upper 60's, which usually last until about Noon, and it normally cools off when the sun goes down. This is the part of summer I don't like and never will. I'd much rather be wearing a sweatshirt to take the chill off!
Have a nice weekend, whatever your weather forecast!
