OMG… what a gorgeous week so far. perfect daytime temps, amazing sleeping nite time temps. I have been working on grad school stuff (I keep reminding myself this is the LAST summer) but I ate lunch on the deck today. in the quiet. watching the trees and the birds and listening. there is a robin that is a birdbath hog. but he finally let a finch in. will work in the garden tonight after dinner hoping to get tomato plants and pepper plants in. Got the beans and lettuces planted. Not doing a BIG garden this year because of school and I have a ton of canned tomatoes downstairs. Some of them will be turned into pasta sauce. Got the upstairs pantry done yesterday. Next is the laundry room. Then 2nd floor …. we will see how fast the summer goes. blessings all!!
