The Latest Summer Minutes
The garden is growing in this heat with watering. We might have peas to pick on Wednesday, but the tomatoes are very sad over there on the trellis. First we had too much rain, I think, for tomatoes and now we have too much heat. They are spindly with very little foliage. They look ugly and pathetic. We shall lime the garden before putting it to bed for winter.Yes, the heat. We’re in the 90’s today, which Wisconsinites consider to be not only almost unbearable, but also dangerous. So we are hiding away under our one-room AC’s taking our projects/work with us.
We have computer work, scrapbooking, reading, and the laundry in the next room to keep going. Nothing of homemaking or work is lost in weather like this, though, because we just take it all with us and operate out of this one place. The rest of the house stays tidy and unused, except the kitchen. Someone tackles the kitchen once a day, early or late, avoiding the heat to keep it clean.And finally, Frances is set to fly to Thailand in August. There was no trauma this time. No umpteen phone calls to find connections with others flying to accompany her. No problems with any plans. No bad feelings from this anxious mom. We made three phone calls, the last being to pay for the ticket. She found a lovely luggage set at the used shop last week. She is all set in every way. And I am delighted to have her go this time. The visa work can begin because we actually have travel dates.
One more thing, Elv will be working about two miles from home this week. Amazing!
