An Update and a preview...
This summer is a mixed bag. My garden has been delayed by weather and other circumstances beyond my control. By now, I should be harvesting favas, peas, onions, broccoli... I blame the wet and cool weather as well as the many crows that are now making their nests in these trees. Last year, bluejays invaded this space, the year before, moles and rabbits. Everyone comes to the water in the summer.
Two of our big machines, the tractor and the weed whacker broke down. Two of our bathrooms were upgraded, taking months, with people in and out of the house. My daughter had surgery and I was gone to her place to provide assistance. My husband needed emergency dental care that pushed everything else aside, including the mowing and weed whacking with the new machines we purchased. Plus, we had company! And we are expecting more.
No wonder my head is spinning and I'm taking refuge in my new blog. Real Food
There, I can stay positive and calm . Cooking relaxes me.
This is really typical summer stuff here.
All winter and spring we live predictable lives.
Then, the rain stops, weeds take over, fences need mending and we are outdoors getting hurt and tired.
Ah, the fun of summer.
The expenses of summer.
The excitement will last us for the next nine months.
I'll keep you posted so you can send your sympathy cards this way. I should be feeling sorry for you in sweltering mid western heat.
I do. Hope your weather improves.
