Daily Notes- July 20th

A new square- 6 inches, unfinished edge.  The French scrap fabric from a friend.

I set my daughter on the hunt for wide mouth canning lids. 
I am limited by "safety rules" to going to a variety of stores looking for them. Short supplies.
She was somewhere north of here and called.
Wide mouth lids.  I said two boxes- thinking of others needing them as well.
Then I thought three.  She bought four.

We'll have storage cupboard pickles. To last the Winter and Spring.
Saw the correct kind of cucumbers to make refrigerator pickles so G will eat those for next few weeks. But didn't buy- no phone to look it up while in the produce section.
So I must return to the store.  Still Monday so it's "legal".

I hauled hose (for the first time this summer) today to water the tomato boxes.  
It was different as I didn't have a co-pilot wanting long drinks from the hose.
I am wondering how long it will take to be reminded and not just stand and weep.
But the boxes got watered, the fig tree got it's two bottles of water.  
My Plow book is due on Wednesday.  Best be spending the day reading.

Great British Baking Show again on Sunday being a real high spot for me. 
Grandchester was again- a disappointment.  It's the new guy.  Terrible.
Having sex with a pretend nun????  Was that supposed to be hilarious?

I'd been trying to figure out why I couldn't stick with the new Grantchester and I think you've nailed it, it's the new guy. Not my sort of charisma at all.
