Hello, hello! How’s your pandemic going? We’ve been busy with things like this!
Also lots of stocking the freezer.
Also THIS! The world’s best pandemic project… brick patio installed! 14 cubic yards of soil placed around it! (full dump truck load) Plants are in and everything is mulched (though that’s not shown in the picture yet…)
Looks like we’re losing the Marie Pavie rose in the transplanting as well… it’s been so blazingly hot this week: 98 degrees and no rain. Both losses are heart wrenching.
There are projects inside the house too:
Yes, that last shot was taken from the bathtub, because that is yet another project in the works…
The plants are still putting out an awesome amount of flowers- even if things are weedy and unkempt out there due to the focus on the patio install…
And then Texas, along with many other states, is reopening… which… just no.
And all the protestors just sound like this to me:
But what can you do, except be as safe as you can?
We continue to wear masks… though there are a lot of people around here who don’t because they mostly protect other people and don’t do the best job at protecting the person wearing them, so those folks don’t see the point. And… yeah? Your point is what with that? Many of those folks are the same ones who are so damn Pro-Life when it’s a theoretical unborn baby but are this cavalier when it comes to living-breathing-fellow-actually-existing-humans? I swear to god it annoys me so much.
I should print this out and hand it out at the grocery store:
Sigh… anyway, this is us anytime we do have to venture out:
I gotta go! We’re taking the oldest to participate in a drive by birthday parade here shortly and then we’ll be building the chicken coop. Because as Samuel L. Jackson would say: “Get these mother fucking chickens outta my mother fucking house!”
