I'm blaming the level of (non)activity around here on the weather. More dampness and fog. Lots of fog. Matter of fact, we're under a Heavy Fog Advisory. (What? Like we should be careful it doesn't fall on us? Or we could be hurt bumping into it? Okay, so my sense of humor has been affected by all the recent dampness. I'll stop trying to be funny.)
We haven't had any rain drops falling today (we did overnight), but the air is very saturated with moisture and although I could go out and do some weeding in the raised beds without donning thigh-high muck boots, I've chosen to stay inside. As our girl Scarlett said, "Tomorrow is another day." Or, "I'll think about it tomorrow." Or something like that. I know the weeds will be there when I do go out.
I did take a tour of the garden about an hour ago to get some fresh air. Lo and behold, my bean and corn seeds didn't rot. They are both valiantly poking up through the soil. Yay! Now if we ever get some sunshine again, I'm sure they'll spurt forth like all gangbusters.
Looking for another picture, I came across this one I took a couple/few weeks ago. Papa Pea is on the next to the top rung of our biggest extension ladder (extended to the max) trying to untangle a small rope and pulley we had over a branch which holds a sunflower seed feeder for the birds. Good thing he's not afraid of heights, huh? I actually got a titch dizzy tilting my head back, back, back in order to point the camera straight up and capture the shot.
That's all I've got for today, Troops. I'm in the middle of trying to clear off the surface of my desk. Now that I can almost see the top, it's apparent I'm gonna need a dust cloth . . . maybe even a bucket with soap and water for wiping before that.
Oh! Good thing I just looked through that last little pile on the right hand corner of the desk top. I have a quilting book that I'd like to pass on to one of you. I'll post a picture of it within the next couple of days so you can check it out and see if it's one you'd like to have.
Hope you had a good weekend and have a mah-velous week coming up.
