We're in limbo in both respects...dancing to the beat of deadlines and responsibilities that have bottlenecked now for the next few weeks, and we're in a prolonged waiting stage...
This week has been fraught. The important things have gotten done...so much so that now thinking back on them, it seems like some of them happened last week. The important things got pushed forward. The frustrating things, such as paperwork and no returned phone calls and trying to fit in appointments and phone time between job hours and business hours, got persevered through. Teenage daughter drama also chose this blessed hour to manifest and also be dealt with, hopefully wisely and maturely, but who knows? Her instruction manual came written in Japanese... :) Money was made, spent, and deposited to be spent further. We passed like ships in the night, and sometimes we passed like rusty barges scraping the sides of the Panama Canal, but all were safe at night at home WHEN we were AT home.
This, too, shall pass :)
All's good, and I'm grateful...mostly, that this week is OVER and that the To Do list that was unavoidable is now behind us!
My sweetheart will not be joining me until after 3 AM, due to unforseen circumstances, but we WILL have tomorrow TOGETHER....0h, YAY, baby, YAYYY!!! :) :)
SO grateful for EVERYTHING and especially a comfy bed to crawl into at the end of weeks like this :)
The tomatoes continue to ripen...we've harvested about 20 egg-sized Romas off those two plants, and the heirloom plants have green tomatoes ripening. I took the mesclun that had been planted in the flats, now that it has become bitter in the heat, and crumbled up it and the soil it was planted in, and used that for plant matter in some newly potted pepper and eggplant sprouted seedlings. The rest I used to mulch under the tomato plants. Some of my tomato plants have bottom leaves that are yellowing, but it doesnt seem to be negatively affecting the rest of the plant. We really need rain...I water the plants every day.
I go now to do something mindless I only do when no one else is home. Daughter will be home later, and hubby will be home much later...so I am going to eat salmon "sushi" rolls (it's really smoked salmon) and watch the older version of "Yours, Mine, and Ours," the one with Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda. And take either a really nice hot shower or a longgg soak in the tug with bath salts. And then answer The Call of the Sealy Posture-pedic...ahhhhhh :)
I hope your week was wonderful, full, and fulfilling! May you have a wonderful evening and day!
And no matter how contrary the weather, may your garden grow!
