Rainy day ramblings...
Sunday, July 22, 2018
Our hot, dry spell seems to have broken overnight... we needed the rain as everything had turned brown and crunchy. My dad has been watering his garden and fruit trees regularly for the last while, so he doesn’t lose any of his crop. As you can see his Pawpaw trees are definitely not suffering! I think he spoils them more than he does me or my niece... and that’s saying something!
My nieces and SIL are off to the Adirondacks for a few days of camping... all of my nieces... they are taking the car I normally drive, so I am basically car-less until the 31st. I have gone without a car for much longer (3 years!), but I have grown accustomed to just jumping in and going. I am going to have to plan more and coordinate trips to the store with my dad. I can do it, I have done it in the past... I am just spoiled now. In a pinch I can go to the corner store for a few things, but they are wickedly expensive. I prefer to only go there for their deli... lol... Eh these are all “champagne” problems... nothing earth shattering. I just have to put more thought into my daily life... which probably isn’t a bad thing!
