I went to the park yesterday morning about 10 to listen to patriotic music.
The local DJ played wonderful patriotic songs for over an hour – we sat in lawn chairs or leaned against our cars. When taps was played, it was almost overwhelming.
Each of the flag poles has a local veterans name on it – Mareen and I sat closest to her dad’s pole – it was very touching.
I came home in such a good mood I decided to move into the porch. This one huge cactus tipped over as I was trying to move it so that was the straw that broke the camel’s back. This is a picture of the huge thing that I couldn’t even roll around!
Here’s the first trimming.
And the final step – I don’t care if it doesn’t survive – I will plant several pots with those pieces I cut off and hopefully give all of them away except one.
The porch so far.
The next scene – notice who’s in my chair.
So I guess if I want a chair I’ll have to move the matching recliner to the porch.
I’m not always enamored of panel quilts but I love this one!
Here’s something I want to put in the back yard – can you guess what Rick said?
I love it!
Last week Hazel and I went on a walk with Sam and Ivy, Aidan, Lucy, and Owen and Ema (she’s the bread baker) and her kids, Emmet, Gilbert and Harriet. All the kids except Harriet in the stroller rode little bikes or scooters or roller blades.
This is what my plant is – slang term is orchid cactus.
And this is what I’m reading and enjoying very much! An eye opener for sure.
Glad I mowed and trimmed yesterday – we got a heavy rainfall last night and early this morning. Too wet to weed so guess I’ll have to sit in the porch and read. Ha!
Our new way of life has made me appreciate the small things – I’m never bored and can be delighted by the ordinary things in my world that I might have missed before Covid-19. How about you? Are you coping? Are you adjusting?
Be Still…….talk to you tomorrow!
