Just wanted to follow up on my last post about cutting the cable cord. I absolutely love it! I have no problem turning off the television at night during 'prime time'. I am enjoying the time to read. Books are always better than the movies anyway. I am also busy with summertime activities in the garden, orchard and chicken coop. Sitting on the back porch watching hummingbirds at the feeder is another favorite pastime. Not to forget yard work! The more it rains, frequent mowings are in order. We have been blessed with more rain this year than in the past two. Love it! Love my life. The vegetation and flowers are beautiful this year.
I'm looking forward to the garden harvest. I have planted three new items this year: Jerusalem artichokes; Bolivian Sun Roots; and butternut and kuri winter squash. May the Lord bless these efforts! I'm picking blackberries every day now. The blueberries and plums were a bust: too much rain, birds/animals' invasions; maybe not enough fertilizer. Looking forward to next year for these. That's what a garden is for, to provide hope.
