|Dreams that Collide|
I guess Wisconsin is on the right latitude this summer. We've been getting the right amount of rain just when we need it. I've been watering regularly, too. I took a walk with my camera this morning:
There is always so much to do. I abhor those things that are routine, repetitive, or maintaining so much that I'll do extra work to eliminate them.
The garden is doing well. I'm getting my fill of beans, cucumbers, and greens right now. I actually canned some pickles (refrigerated). Did you know that using iodized and/or coated salt can discolor canned vegetables? Is it silly to imagine our organs being discolored?
B is coming for a visit in a month... for two months! I can instantly see all the things I need and want to do before then.
I haven't turned my AC on this summer. Putting the unit in and out of the window is too repetitive. I'm working on circulating my cool spring water into the house. Take that, oil world!
I want to take B on a canoe trip on Lake Superior.
I read that Obama visited Pakistan in 1981 when he was 20. U.S. Citizens weren't allowed to travel there at that time.
Weatherwise, it is just too nice right now to be anywhere else.
I can't believe all this will be dead or dormant in three short months.
...but everything will be reds, oranges, and yellows in two months.
It's blackberry season, too. I've been going out every other morning to pick them (freezing most of them). When you consider how much they cost in the stores, I can't afford not to.
It always gets easier. I have all the time in the world. ;-)
