ON THE BACK BURNER

July 29

My days just flow into each other. The rhythm is very natural. I get up early. No matter how late I stay up, I still get up early. it is a curse. That first cup of coffee is the best one of the day. I use to think that I drank a lot of coffee, but I figured out that I drink the same second cup almost all day. Something  seems to interrupt me and I don't quite completely finish that second cup. I have learned to drink cold coffee. I walk the Noodle, which takes less than 20 minutes. No, I really don't get any exercise walking a dog who won't walk further than the end of the drive way. It takes him 20 minutes to sniff the same spots he sniffed the last walk. I guess the scent that he is researching does not evaporate. My kids stop by for coffee or bring their own and go off to work. Now that I am in a battle with the deer , I have to inspect my plants. Those deer , even with a wire fence have managed to put their noses into the wire and nibble .Every morning , I count my little tomatoes. So far ,the tomatoes are ahead. But now, I have aphids on some of my flowering plants. I am using a swab and alcohol to get them off. I don't know if that is what you do, but I feel useful doing it. Before you know it, my day is coming to an end. Not earth shattering,I did no harm,I felt peaceful. It is all good.

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?
