I gave a lot of thought to many of your posts, yesterday. How can I make a difference? I’m closer to an answer, but not quite ready to commit.
The barn is readying to open and they sent a newsletter. So many of us have opted not to volunteer this Summer Session due to Covid that they need those who are volunteering, to pick up more shifts. I know this is so difficult on this exceptional program.
Last night sunset was so surreal and so quieting. Then we got home……..and Fireman found a tick on him. (envision the SCREAM face) . Oh I hate those things. It wound me up a bit. Then I told myself to imagine it was a lady bug. We have showered and been very careful and this is the first tick since we’ve moved here.
By the way, while I was showering at 4 after weeding, the bell apparently rang. Fireman greeted a neighbor , who is 85. This neighbor is from a farm down the way. She told Zach and I when we stopped to say we loved her flowers, two years ago , that she is ready for the Rapture. She invited us to divide any of her flowers and take them. Well, she drove up the big hill in her car, and was going door to door passing out information about the Rapture. At 85. Yesterday. Now that’s kind of inspirational even though I’m in the Blessed Mother camp, not the Rapture Camp.
Fireman was a nice listener and told her, oh yes, we have other neighbors here that are home. And he kindly directed her. She said, ‘you think I am crazy don’t you? My family thinks I am.’ Fireman said, no, not at all. Times are strange right now.”
Working with yarn is very very calming to me. I am crocheting a purse that will felt. I’m making a pattern. This is making me very happy. My sore joints in my fingers are getting better.
Remember that crazy sideways glove I started 2 years ago? Well, I never made more than one side. So it is now my Peace sign.
If you are looking for a good read: I am Malala is a great book. She is so inspiring.
I like reading autobiographical books. I found Micheal J. Fox’s second book better than his first.
and Finally, every one in my family has read Trevor Noah’s book, except me.
