Life On The Country Road
and I might add that this one never wanted much pink
but seems to have it in abundance...
Day lilies in full bloom and in all their glory
Crepe Myrtles beginning to bloom.
Soon Hydrangea and Cosmos will bloom.
Driving down the winding country road to town
everything is a luscious green because of all the rain.
Corn looks like it is close to 10 feet tall
tobacco look so healthy and green, wheat fields look like stubble in the fields where they have been cut and late soybeans have been planted and are beginning to emerge.
Life at the cottage continues at a slower pace but really not much slower but seems
like it is to me as I do not accomplish quite as much. Miss using the lawn tractor and even
have thoughts of buying another one that is automatic
but when this thought arises I put in "maybe not a good idea."
Young man comes every 2 weeks and cuts lawn surrounding this cottage
and I really want to do it myself :)
A/C acted up earlier in the week. Stopped and it was 90 in this cottage but soon was back on.
Nothing the quality of past years and problems with this unit since it was purchased.
Trying to be on computer less , really nothing new and it is so easy as time goes by
to just talk about the past and think I have done my share and now trying to not do this.
Humming birds finally looking not so skinny, beetles have returned and do not like it,
miss my vegetable garden but a good idea that I gave it up and will make weekly trips
to Farmers Market for fresh vegetables.
Early this morning a trip to dentist and since I was half way to the big city continued onward.
Needed to replenish a few clothes and my favorite store is Banana Republic and because
of the 4th of July arriving an excellent sale of all 40% off.
Jamie and family arriving on Sunday, the just married granddaughter is honeymooning in
Italy - oh my. Was on my to do list - but never made it :)
Have to share that I now receive the New York Times Sunday paper. I love it and read over several days. Must be the best paper in the world.
Quote from Rumni
Run from what is comfortable
Live where you fear to live
I have tried prudent living long enough
From now on I'll be mad....
because not this one :)
at present time or ever
and wondered why I found it jotted down among my notes....
Thank you to all who inquired about me.
Much has happened
over a number of weeks
that sent my emotions on high
A learning experience
and at this late stage of my life
guess I am still learning
and always thought I was a fast learner :)
