It's raining again, but today's forecast is 100% rain, heavy rain, windy, flood warnings, and flash flood warnings. We are to get 1-5 inches of water. Maybe the weeds will help protect the plants from the wind today?
I also successfully weeded half of the herb garden. The green onions look terrible this time of year, but I do see little sprouts forming already.
I picked more berries, cut some oregano, and had a daughter shell peas for me, and clean off the dried thyme. Overall, it was a pretty good day, all things weather-wise, considered.
The humidity lifted for most of our recent dry days, so porch time has been absolutely wonderful. Any little bit I get. I got a teensy bit of porch time yesterday, late afternoon. The wind was blowing from the east a bit too strong, and the temperature had dropped. I had to put on a jacket, and it's the end of June. Craziest weather we have ever had here.
I started making these cup coasters (cotton) to match the doily on one kitchen table.
I finished the dishcloth and started another too. Thanks to a dentist appointment, I got more done. Speaking of the dentist, I have seen everything now. A woman walked in with her two kids, and sat two chairs from me. She pulled out her phone, and watched a movie with the sound on. The office already has a big TV with movies playing around the clock. All that noise just about made me wait in my car. I almost gave her the glare (headphones are for that, kind of glare). What is this world coming too? While she rudely did that, her girls were watching me knit, and looking curious as to what I was doing.
I have even spent a teensy bit of time reading my current Hemingway book. I have to admit, it's getting old. I'm not sure if I'll read anymore than I have on hand this year. He's either at a bar, waking up to a drink, going out for a drink, sharing a drink, on a boat with a drink....you get the picture. After a while that stuff gets monotonous. Sorry Hemingway.
Writing resumed on the porch too. Hubby got me motivated. I'm not sure exactly how, but he did.
