ON THE BACK BURNER

July 14

Tell me some place else that can have blue sky, sun shining, fluffy clouds and it is raining. Isn't Florida great. This is probably why the gardeners can cut plants and shrubs down to a nub and in a few weeks their growth is phenomenal . I had to stop with the container gardening. I was getting schizophrenic . Too much sun, too much water, not enough water, too much sun. It's easier to buy my cherry tomatoes at the grocery store. I am keeping a keen eye on my orange tree. There were a lot of blooms and now we have a number of green oranges. It's me against whatever rodent eats a nibble of the fruit, decides it's not ready and drops it on the ground. We are partial to California Navels. Their season is mostly over , and the Florida Navels are not ready. I know that people have strange rituals and ours is that every night we share a Navel orange, cut into eights. We each get 4 little pieces . It's our bedtime snack. I guess this is better than eating a brownie before bed. The caffeine in the brownie keeps me up. An orange never does.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
