So, here is a view of one of the garden beds that is full of weeds, amid all the beautiful flowers. Every bed around the house is in a similar state...is it any wonder? I've vowed to take it slowly, but firmly in hand, and get to each bed and have it weeded by the end of the month. The other night John and I tackled the area right in front of the house, until the mosquitoes got the best of us. Looks much better....each day, a little bit more. I mean, you might as well enjoy the garden for the rest of the season, rather than have its untidy appearance plague your sensibilities and fill you with guilt! Weeds be gone!
Meanwhile, the internet service has been pretty dismal lately and I continually curse the satellite internet service we have, as I spend unusual amounts of time online just doing the most basic tasks. But lately, it's been much worse than usual and often I can't get online at all. Of course my worry all summer is that the dish, located on the very edge of the bank, would just topple over into the river, but there it stands like a sentinel day after day. It was my friend and neighbor Sue who mentioned that it could be out of alignment and we should call the company, who can tell remotely whether it's in line or not and can even sometimes adjust it from afar! Duh! Sure enough, it's no longer pointing in the right direction....could it be the 300+ tons of rocks loaded onto the banks with tremendous force....perhaps it's not a surprise, given this summer we've had, that the thing needs to be put "right"...so Monday someone will be here to get things straight!!! I'm a bit out of alignment myself.....maybe this will help me too!
I am in town at the grocery store using the wi-fi to write this post....will keep it short and sweet and write more, including new work, at the beginning of the week. I'm so behind even reading blogs....my apologies to those of you whose blog I subscribe to. It's just torture waiting forever for things to load...hope to get back in the swing next week! Have a wonderful weekend!
