Around here, summer days and evenings are anything but dull or boring. There is always something to do. It is a never ending list of chores and projects.
Now mind you, a lot of the projects get put off, as there just isn't the time to do them, till cooler weather.
I don't mean to sound as if I am complaining, as the garden is a blessing, but also a chore!
The yard - well what can I say? So much heat and so much rain equals weeds every where. We did have an extended dry spell for several weeks and many things just looked like crap. So I started just cutting them back to the ground - and now they are arising once again (although they look better!)
Work, work, work - something we all need to get used to. So many today, don't want to get their hands dirty, or think things are trivial and not worth the effort.
Me thinks they are!!!!!!
It gives us something to be proud of - something for others to admire (pretty yards) - and often times, good food to eat.
I am currently writing this in between waiting on the slaw to set for a while before canning another batch, and picking more tomatoes.
I can't begin to tell you how many times I have mopped in the past two weeks - I guess I am not the neatest canner!!!
I try to spend some early mornings out pulling weeds and cleaning flower beds. Oh my, they have gotten so out of hand. I dead head flowers when needed, and the weeds.....................
I truly wish we could cross weed genes with garden genes to make our gardens grow like weeds! Wouldn't that be something?
Well, it surely didn't hurt them - they are growing again and looking healthy. That means a second crop of mint!!!!!!!
OK, I guess I am done rambling about the woes of a summer day.
I am blessed and I am busy and I am getting tired!
BUT I AM ALIVE AND HAVING A BALL!
As G always jokingly says "it keeps you out of the bars!!" LOL LOL!!! (he really is joking!)
No lazy days of summer here.
How about you? I bet you are all keeping mighty busy too!
