WDIIA- Friday, April17, 2020


I normally do not say this much anymore but TGIF. The last couple of days I was in the pits and thankful to put these few days to rest.

Our internet connection has been completely unstable since the storms early Monday morning. Thus wreaked havoc on my online classes and my blogging. Hopefully, things are back to normal.

i added a new page to my blog that contains some if the short pieces I have been writing around the pandemic. I decided not to make these pieces posts, but rather keep them in a page all to themselves. I will be adding to this page as time goes on. If you are interested, you can read at your leisure. Writing in the Pandemic

Hubby is waiting on a delivery from Lowe’s. He is going to build another larger container garden. We decided the delivery charge was a better option than going to the store.

I hope all is well in your world. I always love hearing how you are getting along.

  1. Beetley is much the same, Maggie. My wife is becoming very upset about only seeing her grandchildren over face-time, but otherwise things are not too bad. We can get everything we need in the shops here, and other than the area being absent of any traffic to speak of, life feels the same, But I know it isn’t, something always in the back of my mind of course. I will check out your new page.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. We tend to live in a small circle these days, Pete. Then, a glimpse of the real world, the stark reality, rears its ugly head. Hopefully, people maintain their sanity.

  2. Greetings, I know what you mean about Internet being unstable. I am teleworking and some days I wish to be in my official office. I like teleworking but still adapting after being in an office for 33 years.

    All is well in regards to staying out of the path of COVID-19; but my heart goes out to those who are directly impacted.

    1. We are retired, so being home is normal for us. We are adjusting to the restrictions and not being able to go out in our local parks and hiking trails. It is an adjustment, but compared to those who have lost so much, we are doing well.

  3. Funky day. I cut 40 gown pieces the other day from a huge entire bolt of fabric. The group has now constructed over 1000 gowns for our hospital and they told me today there’s no cutting needed right now. So I feel badly not being put to use now.
    Cant wait to see photos of your new garden. What will you plant in there?
    The end. 🙄

    1. We all have those funky days — I have certainly had my share. What noble work to cut fabric for gowns. Now you rest. You do not need to busy yourself 100% of the time. We are going to plant more vegetables so we can have things to eat from our garden instead of buying from the store.


      1. Mail order??!!! Lol. We cant do a garden because our yard space gets intense afternoon sun and everything burns up. I’ll enjoy pictures of yours though.
        I’m not a resting type person! Darn.


  4. Hmm. Lowe’s delivery. That may be a good thing, although our local Lowe’s is empty, according to my hubbie, who went off to get mulch (and Espoma sustained release organic fertilizer for me). yesterday afternoon.

    Thankfully, all is well in our garden. Spring continues to unfold.

    When the cole crops and lettuce start to bolt, I just hope I can get tomato and pepper starts as replacements — and sow squash and bean seeds, whether for us or for our summer tenant.

    No givens, that’s for sure. My 83-yr old dad is still yearning for returning to Quebec this summer in mid-June. I truly hope that happens. But I’m thinking we’ll be delayed by a month, even as my hubbie continues my Dad’s magical thinking.

    1. Lisa, we actually ordered from Spartanburg as the Hendersonville Lowe’s did not have all that he needed. The delivery was late in the evening as they have been very busy. Definitely worthwhile if you can find what you need.

      I am trying to think positively about when we can dare to travel again, but I do not have a lot of faith in our Federal government to make wise decisions. I am more impressed by our local government.

      We are such novices as organic gardeners. We always just keep our fingers crossed!


  5. Our Internet has been unstable since the shut-in. It feels like someone has flipped a switch though. Traffic is back to normal, including traffic jams in the larger city nearby. People are crazy is all I can say.

    1. In our area, most are taking things seriously as opposed to some people I see in the news. I wish everyone could just cool their jets for a little longer.
