or, more time. There are so many things I want to do and I sign up for most of them and then, I’m scrambling to meet obligations that are fun, but a commitment, and then, well, I’m really busy. Now, I don’t want anyone to think that’s a complaint. It isn’t. I am grateful every blessed day that somebody wants to spend time with me. I’m ornery, independent, and discombobulated, but sincere. My real problem is the things I NEED to do. The chores. The duties. All that stuff. I know what I really need! I need staff. Whew. I’m so glad we got that settled.
So what’s new? What’s new in Middle Earth is summer. We are enjoying a warmish day in the mid-90’s and tomorrow it will be in the higher mid-90’s. Grover and I are not amused, but will soldier on. The other aspect of the weather is the bugs. We aren’t the only ones with a plethora of bugs, are we? How about poison ivy? I have some beautiful patches in my back yard. I just need to get out there to pull them. If the plants get too big I have to use a weed-killer and with the big pup, I really hate doing that. I also have a leak in my pond. That means a really really big job of replacing the liner. I will spare you the gory details and share the actual experience with you when I get that far. Right now I am suffering from my decision to cut down the elderberries. They have gotten too tall, and I can’t get to the berries, so they gotta go. I was really looking forward to trying the wine. I’ll hope that next year works out better. Well, I gotta go now. I think my Mom’s calling me. See ya.
