Tomorrow is the first day of summer, sez the calendar.
We've been having nice summery days for a few weeks now.
Yesterday, BG and I were in the yard working. He was mowing
and I was pulling weeds in the garden when a sudden
rain shower opened up and poured on our heads.
ran hurried to the house and, for a brief moment,
I felt like a kid again. BG was grinning as he tried to catch
me on the lawn tractor, but I had a head start. What
summertime activity that you did as a youngster do you wish
you could do again? Or perhaps you still walk through
the rain puddles or ride carousels or bicycles?
I planted about 4 rows of zinnias and only part of 2 rows came up.
They haven't bloomed yet so the photo above is from last year.
I saved seeds from my last crop and none of them came up.
For some indoor summer fun, I'm still loving playing around in Photoscape. I really like the Watercolor Pencil edit.
My dream free editing site would combine elements of
Photoscape with PicMonkey.
I water my flowers in the evening since I'm usually not an
early morning person. I put some plant food around the
flowers the other day and loosened the soil a bit and gave
them a good talking to. lol! Tell me I'm not the only one
that talks to flowers! So far, most of the flowers
are thriving. Now that the hot weather has arrived, it will
be a challenge to keep them healthy. Some varieties do better
than others on my concrete patio.
My little fur-girl is part of the reason I'm not an early
morning person. Stormy likes to sleep snuggled up next to me and
while it's nice to have that warm, furry little body close in
the winter time, it's not so much fun in the summer.
Last night she came to bed and climbed up on my pillow and laid
down at the top of my head with her paws draped over my head.
I could feel and hear her purring and I got tickled.
I was trying not to laugh and at the same time hoping that she
didn't hear something strange and dig her claws into my head
to propel herself off the bed to go investigate. She has never
slept there before and I don't think I'll let her make that a habit!
I have been distracted countless times since I began this
post today. I think I'm finally finished and ready to hit the
Publish button. Have a good weekend! And...
Happy Friday to you!
