Time Passes


My, how time flashes by.  It doesn’t seem like a month, but it has been.  Well, lets see what’s been happening and what’s new…

I have a very kind gentleman who mows my yard for me when he mows the church’s yard (the Baptist Church is my neighbor).  And I’ve been very happy with him until this last time he mowed.  I know he thought he was being helpful, but he mowed down my mint and weed whacked my trumpet vine.  Sigh!  Oh well.  (I did notice, today when I was watering, that it looks like it’s starting to grow again.  I need to get some sort of barrier so they don’t get knocked down – again.)  He isn’t charging me, so I can’t complain too much, but I will ask that he not mow by the front of the house any more.

As for my other plants, my sister swiped my watermelon plant.  Well, actually Mom said to give it to her.  Out numbered, what can you do?  Never got around to planting my corn, but I do have marigolds and a new mint plant (planted in a barrel so it won’t get knocked down).  All of my tomato plants have flowers and tomatoes on them, I’m so excited!  My rosemary is growing great and the heat finally got to my columbines and bleeding hearts.  I keep watering them so they’ll be back come next spring.

The rains have finally stopped.  Well, they stopped almost a month ago, and it’s been in the 90s and 100s almost every day since.  Now we are back to Red Flag Warnings when the wind starts blowing.  (Red Flag Warnings, for those who don’t know, are warnings that wildfires could be possible, the conditions are right for them to occur.)

We had our bi-annual (every two years) Family Reunion.  It was so great to see everyone.  Some I haven’t seen in 4 or 5 years and some I haven’t seen in 10 years or more.  Mom was so happy at the turn out.  I was so glad for her.

Well, I think that’s about it for now.  It’s hot outside, I’m inside with both air conditioners running and a cold drink where I can reach it.  Meow-Yen Kitty is curled up under the desk, watching me closely.  She’s “in time out” right now.  She figured out how to open the screen door this morning.  Not a fun thing to do at 6 in the morning, chasing her back into the house.  I guess I just have to learn to deal with a scary smart kitty.

Have a good rest of the week, all.
