July has sort of rushed on by! I can sort of remember a barbecue with family and friends for the Fourth.
And then I got busy. I started to help cook for harvest. Not only that, add in all the job hunting I'm doing, and the somewhat neglected garden. I'm also supposed to be making something for an upcoming art show as well as make beads for a friend's wedding.
I could be perfectly happy puttering around at home--as long as I could figure out how to pay all those pesky bills. I have some ideas and would certainly welcome more suggestions.
My morning glories have started to bloom and they are so pretty. They always make me happy.
Yesterday I had the day at home. So I did a little yard clean up and did some shoring up of the irrigation ditch. Then I went to war on the milkweed growing in my raspberries. I like the milkweed, I really do, but it is completely taking over the raspberry bed. So it must go. We have some growing somewhere else for any misplaced Monarch butterflies who might pass by. But that sap! It gets all over my skin and makes me wildly itchy! If I don't wash it all off, it leaves burns. I persevered and pulled out about a third of the milkweed before I had to go and scrub. Note to self--WEAR JEANS when working in the milkweed.
Today it rained, so again, I couldn't cook. I finished most of the beads for the wedding. And I am now off to find and price out everything I need to finish my piece for the art show. The deadline is August 10.
