Off the Grid. . .
I love writing my blog, and reading other blogs, but admit. I need to go off grid for a week. Meaning, get off the internet. Meaning no emails, which will be the hardest for me. I tend to have a routine when I check emails and write my blog.
Hopefully, in doing this, I can also read more, crochet more, and organize more. Not to mention just enjoy sitting and doing nothing at the end of the day.
I know I'll have one long post when I return here. Or not. It all depends on the weather too.
Yesterday was a "four-pair underwear day." I weeded the onions and peppers out, while Hubby mowed. The sun was terrible for a while and the rain teased us in tiny showers every now and then. I kept hearing my mother's voice, "be careful and take breaks because you can have a stroke if you're not careful." Rest assured, I did take breaks.
Our rain barrels are overflowing here. I'm so glad it rained. The garden needed it. I also planted cumin seeds for the second time. I read that they are very difficult to grow, so we'll see if I have any success with our climate.
Some good news! Our daughter who is going off to college this fall, had a job interview yesterday (for a summer job), got hired the same day, and had he orientation that same evening. Woo hoo to her! And she can set it up, to where she can work there when she's home during summer or on leaves from school.
