Okay, how in the world do I begin this post? I’m just sitting here, trying to come up with something witty to draw you in after a nearly four-month sabbatical (or something) to no avail. So, you’ll just have to bear with me as I flex my rusty blog fingers and type away.
In recent news, my garden is doing very well this year again. I have lots of cucumber plants (6) and jalapeno plants (8 – I would have had 9 but one died). So, yeah, I’ll have quite the crop of veggies. My friend suggested I make spicy pickles with my jalapenos and cukes. I thought that sounded great! I have a feeling that canning season will be fairly busy once again.
So other than gardening, what else have I been up to? Well, lots of things actually. School is done and the kids are enjoying their break. I’ve also been getting up earlier than usual to go walking with a good friend every morning. These past few months, I’ve had some health issues that have hopefully resolved. Time will tell I guess. David finishes his degree next month! This is the one and only class that he’s taken that I’m actually interested in. Throughout his college career, I’ve read to him microeconomics, marketing, accounting, journalism, and I know I’m missing stuff. But this time, it’s music appreciation! The cool thing about music appreciation is that I actually know what the authors of the book are talking about – no talk about profit margins and other microeconomicky things. But quarter notes, Beethoven, and syncopation! Musical instruments and harmony! Ah, it’s like a breath of fresh air. The best part about music appreciation? It’s his very last class!
The puppy is doing well. He will be a year old at the end of this month. He finally figured out the whole potty thing. We have some occasional accidents, mainly when he gets scared, and it sure seems like he’s got a sensitive stomach because he throws up more than I thought a dog would. On the whole though, he’s doing well.
I better wrap this one up. I have to call the insurance company (don’t I know how to have fun?) and work out (again, lots of fun there). So until next time (which will hopefully be sooner than four months), adios!
