ON THE BACK BURNER

May 22

I found GoodWill ! There were a few things that I needed, like a pot with a lid. I found the perfect pot, but not a lid. I bought it anyway. Port Townsend was beautiful today. Sun, blue sky, temperature , moderate.The flowers here are so vivid. I have never seen orange azaleas before.And California poppies. And Peonies just about to blossom. The weather is so moderate that when you ask the locals , they tell you that it is never too cold, too warm, too wet, too dry. Perfect for growing most everything, including grapes for wine. As an aside note, I bought a quart of Jersey milk at the local grocery store. I have never seen milk labeled " Jersey milk, from Jersey cows". It looked so good in a glass bottle, with the cream on top, just like in the old days when the milk man delivered the milk to the back door of my home. And it tasted just like I thought it would. Really good. The deposit on the bottle was $1.95. The clerk said I would get that back when I returned the bottle. I guess I have to wash the bottle first.For that amount of money, someone else should wash the bottle for me. But the best part of the day was taking the remaining Grands out to lunch. I didn't  even have to talk. I just sit and bask , and eat.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
