April 18 to 24
Watered the plants in the garden and front yard planters, added six more sweet pea plants and one primula.
The fern is beginning to open and beside the hose there seem to be some mushroom/fungus growing.
Grateful for routines - they give me paths to follow through my day. When I stand still and wonder what to do I pick another task on that imaginary list and carry on.
Cherry tree in full blossom. The birds and squirrels and racoons wait patiently for the season of cherries in great abundance.
April 19 - Sunday
Routines thank goodness, keeping on keeping on. Slept in - but was very early morning before I finally went to sleep so it worked out ok.
I packed up two more boxes of collectibles. A few of them got together before they were wrapped.
I made a short list of what I would like to do today. Packing 2 boxes of collectibles, done.
Clearing off my dresser top (a huge pile) sorted, put away or bagged for another day, almost finished. Pay bills, done.
April 20 - Monday
Did weekly grocery shopping at a larger store (than my smaller usual one) and the safety precautions have increased. I shop quickly and follow my list (which is based on the organization of that store) and carry Lysol wipes with me to wipe the cart handle plus clean my hands as I shop.
I dried sheets outside today - I look forward to sunshine and fresh air. Had the windows open all day too.
April 21 - Tuesday
A quick visit to Bruce's grocery store today - they were originally a fish market, catch and sell their own since the 1930's and they continue as a small grocery and fresh fish store, family owned and run, with many of the grand and great grand children working there too.
The "Good People Bring Out the Good in People" was painted by a family of 10, 12 and 7 year old children on plywood provided by Bruce's so they can share their art and feelings with everyone who visits. Bruce's fences and building have become an art gallery painted by children who are sharing their creations.
April 22 - Wednesday
Raining today which is needed. Out for a drive with DS and the truck, usual household jobs, some tidying. Lots of time to visit DH over a coffee, talk about life stuff.
April 23 - Thursday
The cherry blossoms are 'snowing'
April 24 - Friday
Not raining today - but the promised sunshine has not yet happened. The plants are outside on their trays having some fresh air.
April 25th Happy Birthday DH
Thank you Dear Friends for visiting today.
