Time to Relax

Well, that title is not spot on as I’ve got laundry washing/drying. Thank heaven I don’t have to do it all by hand like my ancestors. Later SO and I plan to process and cook the chard I harvested.

Meanwhile, I borrowed a clever idea from dear Pam Jackson and brought out a fan to enjoy my patio despite the humidity. But my morning was busy. First I washed dirt off our garden plot plantings the best I could after last night’s hail. Don’t want some soil pathogen causing disease if we can help it. Thank heaven we saw little damage from the blessedly tiny ice chunks.

After gardening I went to the gym for weight training, showered when I got home, and harvested the aforementioned chard. Meanwhile, I’ve been busy on Facebook before I start writing. You see, weekends are for Rainbow Snippets. Mine for the week is on my adult’s only Sand Castles blog for content of a sexual nature (once again, though, more comedic than steamy).

How is your Saturday progressing?

  2. We had hail too! And our temps have plummeted 20 degrees! It's going to put the tomato plants back a bit. I gave up on the peppers. And the hail probably tattered the baby whatevers the earwigs left! I went grocery shopping (ugh) and did laundry. The library summer reading program started today, so I finished an old Agatha Christie. I always forget "who dun it" after a few years off! This was the Mr. Quin short stories. Do you know him? Who do you think he was? I've my theory after re-reading.

    1. Ooh... That sounds like fun reading. I'm not familiar with those tales. So sorry about the hail. You're such an accomplished gardener it saddens me to read how many travails have hit this season. Take care, my dear.

  3. Sounds busy enough. I sure would love it if we had a patio here. We love the fresh air (unlike the majority of our neighbors who like being shut in with a/c's blasting away 24/7 and their places all closed up).

    1. Well, to be honest, I'm inside today with the a/c blasting. ~grin~ It's so humid there is condensation on the windows. Ugh... Be well!

  4. So sweet of you to mention me....I tell you, even with my fan on a stand the heat was way to much for us. Lily went in and went to bed, she did not even want to be out. This morning raining and cooler but oh my gosh, THUNDER and Dakota can't handle that so we are back in on the couch. I try to get out early to do the yard or gardening. It really helps but by 10 am lately it has been hard to even enjoy that. I actually have a couple of places I am treating heat rash and it is driving me NUTS! You know, bad thing is, summer is not even here yet! Wow, this will be a rough one. However along with the fan I am thinking of installing a ceiling fan on the deck!

    1. Ooh, a ceiling fan. Those are nice. We have one in our TV lounge that I insist be turned on even in winter. ~grin~ I'm so sorry about all your health issues. ~hugs~ You're an inspiration, my dear, with all you do. Take care.

  6. Hail - how crazy where you are! I can't remember the last time that I had chard. I do like it and used to grow it when we lived on land and had a garden.

  7. I had a rather busy Saturday. (I'm offline on Saturdays.) This Sunday is kinda lazy with a side of laundry and blog writing.
