Catch-Up

School is finally over and vacation started for me on Wednesday.

Unfortunately it was the type of vacation where I must have picked a GI bug up from a student and spent two days sick as a pup. This evening is the first night of “vacation” where I am not perking a 101-102 fever. I feel rather decent and am taking it easy. I figure tomorrow, waking up chipper, I’ll resume my daily schedule of home life.

I started slow housekeeping after our morning walk and breakfast. Robert Shaw and “Jaws” kept us company. Kasia and I had gotten soaking wet during our morning walk. It was a light drizzle when we started: half way in, it changed its’ tune. We had a decent afternoon, and we are trying to savor relatively low temperatures while they are with us.

Gardening has been at a slow pace, as we have been getting a lot of rain. That makes me a bit sad, as I know my tomato plants will pay the price. I know heat is due back as of the weekend, so we will see. Our diet is keeping par for the course: as more fresh vegetables come in, I know I’ll be diving in with more vigor.I know our lettuce is thriving right now.

I can’t wait!

And The Wayward Wind…..

This is a picture from our walk during the morning.I added the bay pictures so you could see how blustery it was.

My nephew,Matt, let me know that a front was blowing up last night. Needless to say, I was surprised to see leaves off the trees and on the ground that would measure up to my bionic knees, and I am 5’6″ tall. As Jim says, he’ll be needing a shovel to get out tomorrow to get through all of the leaves.

So it’s clean flannel sheets on the bed and an extra blanket, and we are good to go! Stay warm!
