As the kids say, I’m not gonna lie. I haven’t been too busy to blog, I’ve just had a hard time thinking of anything going on in my life that is upbeat, blog-worthy, or interesting.
Well, it is fig season and I do love fresh figs.
Here’s my breakfast bowl today, toasted oats, nuts, and fruits.
Who could resist this bowlful of goodness ?
Our birds are enjoying the design of a new feeder filled with the addition of peanuts and a millet-thistle mix to their daily black oiler sunflower seeds. We’ve had as many as ten birds pile on it at once, inside and on the edges of the tray, chowing down cheek to cheek.
It’s my little sister’s birthday today so I thought I’d share her card with you. (I’m the big sister on the right, wearing my “car coat” which I thought was about the coolest and most sophisticated thing ever. You can’t see them here but we were both wearing our black and white saddle shoes, polished and shined every Saturday night).
Books, puzzles, yoga, podcasts, an hour of Netflix or Britbox or PBS each night, a bike ride or walk in the neighborhood in outrageous heat and humidity, chased by a cloud of mosquitoes . . .
— that’s about all I’ve got.
P.S. Anyone want to trade 500-piece puzzles through the mail? Between my knee surgery last winter and current conditions, I have an embarrassing number of them to offer! (Photos upon request.)
