Well, at least I'm trying to find a stepping block that will get me back into the saddle of regular blogging.
I have my computer back up and operating which is a big relief after the ups and downs of the past month. Seems we've found a good, honest, fair, easy-to-deal-with computer guy whom we are now calling our new best friend. The first computer "guru" we dealt with charged us three times as much as this second one but didn't do anything to solve the problems I was having. So it goes. I just feel very happy to have found someone else we can rely upon when computer glitches pop up that can't be taken care of "in house."
Being without my computer has given me the time to get completely caught up on my whole list of summer tasks. Hahahohohoheeheehahaha! Summer time and the livin' is easy. Well, yes, but because of so many things we want to do, both work and recreation related, that simply can't be done in other times of the year up here in our neck o' the woods, it tends to make it all on the frantic side. Keeps us hoppin', that's for sure.
I want to give my garden some press time here on the blog. And I promise to gather some pictures to post soon. Yesterday, I made my first real harvest of strawberries.
The total haul was four and three-quarter pounds of sweet, juicy, lusciousness. We ate a few, shared a few and had strawberries and cream for breakfast this morning. Only two of our three varieties are producing so far with the heaviest yielding variety (Cavendish) of last year still to start. I can hardly wait for the first Strawberry Cream Pie, and I've promised to make a Strawberry-Rhubarb pie for Papa Pea this year.
Our regular rains continue with a couple of heavy thunderstorms rolling through last night. Our grass is so long we might have to bale it when it dries enough for chopping it down. Right now it's solidly covered with white clover which our bees are loving.
Our little tourist town is full, full, FULL of vacationers so I try to get in and out as early as possible when it's necessary.
I've missed you all (very much!) during this past month of periods without connection to the Internet and am trying to get caught back up. So now, into that saddle and . . . giddy-up!
"Straw" and shots
