Monday Catch-Up

Day 281

Last week was a bit of a blur for me, so I thought it might be nice to play a little catch-up today.

Things I forgot to tell you:

I had my hair cut and colored again last week. Back to purple and blue. These were my two sister’s favorite colors and it is a constant reminder of them every time I look in the mirror. It makes me happy!

My niece had surgery last Wednesday. It was a long day, but the outcome so far is a very positive one for which we are most thankful.

The summer heat has been intense, but not as bad as elsewhere in the world. All our trees provide wonderful shade which keeps our house easier to cool.

We are finally getting tomatoes and cucumbers and peppers from the garden. It is so nice to have fresh veggies.

I noticed the dogwood leaves have already started to turn a slight purple color. One of the first to bloom in spring and one of the first to start transforming, readying for fall.

The hummingbirds are back again. I was able to approach one and take a nice photo with my phone. Then I was sad because I think it may be blind in its right eye.

Looking ahead:

We are still car shopping. No decisions yet.

I am making lasagne to take to my niece and her family this week.

This week is the 4th of July. Last year we had grandkids and took them to see the fireworks. This year I think we will cookout and stay home out of the heat.

I am getting the urge to write a little fiction to share here. Still pondering the idea.

My other niece is also having surgery in July. All my young people seem to be struggling with health issues.

I have not yet taken on migrating my blog to my other domain. It is on my list, but for some reason I am dreading it.

I think I am caught up now…
