September bundle…

I’d been planning to put a garden bundle together for several days. Today it finally happened. I started with a blank canvas, of course. A lovely old cotton napkin and a basket of clippings… Bug adventures with the ducks have been interesting of late. I’m having a hard time not feeling bummed about the fogger…

A heavy morning…

I woke up this morning with some things on my mind. They bothered me for quite a while, as it’s a problem I’m not sure what to do about. One of those things that seems to plague you throughout life, something where there’s a tendency to blame others for the situation, but if you look…

August…

August has been my favorite month so far this year. Everything in the garden has flourished, from tomatoes to sunflowers to kittens and ducks. It is so amazing watching the transformation of the flowers from this… To this… These Mammoth sunflowers are staying true to their name, the heads are so big and heavy. The…

Willow and what not…

My day was an unplanned busy one. I ran errands…store for a few groceries, hayseed store for more duck grain…and to return a big bag of grain infested with bugs…weevils???…that are all over my house now…gas since H had left the car on E plus new windshield fluid which was also on E…and thrift shop….

Eclipsed…

Still posting from the iPad…not real fun. Anyway, I was outside during the eclipse for a bit ┬áThe light was so odd… The greens had such an emerald, blue green tint to them, almost sickly really… I read a brief story about the Navajo and how they stay inside and do not observe the eclipse,…

Still busy…

We worked all weekend on the house. My back feels it this morning. A new collage piece… Painting is nearly completed, but we purchased two much-needed ceiling fans at Costco and H spent all of yesterday installing one of them. They are Hunter fans, very good quality, but a bit more complicated to put together….

Busy…busy…

We are currently painting the office, so the computer is disassembled. I also don’t know where the keyboard is for my iPad, so this week will be slim on posting. I’m upstairs, trying to have a bit of a morning before doing more painting. I started a little weaving project on a homemade loom. It…

Much to do…

I took last week off as I just was not in writing mode. I have been busy with the garden, of course. Here’s proof… That batch is from over a week ago. The carrots are long since eaten…yum…along with the okra and that big Soldacki tomato there on the lower right. I have a gallon…

Here, but not…

I’ve decided to take a little break… So, I’m here, but not… Back next week…          

Pure bliss…

Today feels like fall. The weather is so perfect, 70s, a gentle breeze, that I had the strong desire to take off my dress and walk around in the garden naked. I probably should have, but I have neighbors. I do have a fenced-in yard. I probably should have. We have loads of tomatoes. For…

If it’s not one thing…

Apologies for not posting today. I started a new diet, and the result was a doozy of a headache. All day. What’s more, it appears I have sprained my right wrist. No clue how, but, once again, it hurts to type. Not sure how I’ll do the duck’s water tomorrow. One-handed, I guess. Anyway, I…

Gray days with sunny side up…

We have had so many gray days lately, but without rain. I would love for it to rain. The garden would love rain. The ducks would love rain. The ducks would especially love rain because rain means more bugs. The drier it has gotten here, the fewer bugs there have been. I suspect fewer bugs…
