Happy June


Come in and have a cup of coffee with me.  Or I’ll make a pot of tea if you prefer.  How have you been?  Isn’t the weather beautiful today?  Sun shining, birds chirping.  I love it!

Can you believe it’s June already?  How quickly time passes.  May was a blur for me.  What do you think of the Daily Post retiring?  I loved the daily prompts.  I’ll miss it for sure, but like they said they will be left on the site and can be used over again.  Also, I see some people have already organized prompts to take their place.

What a week it’s been!  I had Alannah over the holiday weekend.  She is learning how to sew.  She looked so cute behind my Featherweight sewing machine concentrating on keeping her seams straight.  We had a really good time.  It’s fun to have the kids spend the weekend.  Although I have to admit it can be exhausting.  They seem to be active until they close their eyes to sleep.

It rained here so much this week which led to a Fibro flare.  So I didn’t get too much accomplished in the house.  Finally, on Thursday I got my dining room table cleared off.  It still had the sewing machine and supplies on it from the weekend.

Yesterday I spent three hours going through the mail I hadn’t opened.  Three hours!  I cannot believe the amount of junk mail that is sent out daily.  I would just throw it out immediately, but I am afraid that there will be one piece of mail that is important in the pile.  So the three hours doing it was my penance for not sorting it right away.  I watched NASCAR practice and qualifying for the Pocono Race on Sunday while I did it.

My miniature roses are blooming again.  They went into a little bit of shock when I transplanted them into bigger pots.  I love flowers, but not gardening.  I used to have beautiful gardens back home in Pennsylvania.  It was a lot of work, but I really enjoyed the results.  I had so many varieties of Hosta.  They were the focal point of my gardens and I accented them with colorful annuals.  Along the fence surrounding the pool, I had hanging baskets with brightly colored flowers.  Purple clematis decorated the front porch railings and columns and hanging baskets of ferns hung between the columns.  So since retirement, no gardens.

Today is dance recital day.  Looking forward to seeing the kids dance.  I’ll run some errands while I’m in town.  I guess I’ll have to go food shopping too.  Not my favorite job.  But I do like to eat and my cupboards are bare.  Gary loved to food shop.  He would be gone for hours.  Me, I am in and out.  I have a list and I stick to it.  Gary would always want me to go with him.  Occasionally I gave in.  I used to say he thought food shopping was taking me on a date.

I guess I should hem those shorts for Kelly.  I’ll see her today at the recital.  She could really use them now that it’s gotten hot.  I need to burn a DVD for her of Alannah’s dance competition too.  Guess I should get moving.

Have a wonderful week.

  1. Sounds like you have a fun weekend. Best wishes to you as you go about ’em! I enjoy taking photographs of wildflowers, and so I sow the seeds…but I also let a lot of other plants grow in the flowerbed for the sake of the bees and other flying pollinators. 😀

      1. That’s happened to me, a couple of years. I did, last year, having had to move the garden to another area of the yard, practically give up before the plants started to grow. The mix was mostly summer/fall varieties, rather than spring. ::sigh::
