A photo I took yesterday- at dusk. Minutes later it was dark outside. This is directly down the steps from the porch and my front doorway. The sidewalk a neighbor created years and years ago (he's in construction) is like an elephant's trunk...... and behind the planter with the electric blue annuals--- last year's grass project.
At the end of May going gently into June...my gardens are truly wonderful. It doesn't last long. In the back the peonies are in full bud and the June display of "here they are and then gone" flowers will be wonderful. The False Indigo is sending up tall intensely blue spikes of flowers. As blue as the annuals in this container (my husband built the wooden base-- which looks sort of Japanese to me.......). The wide bowl container used to have a pedestal base but it cracked off one summer. Now it has no pedestal so husband made the box- so I could continue to use the bowl. Because I liked it so much. Wabi Sabi...
Reading Love at First. Again. Reading it so much slower than usual. It's such a lovely story of falling in love. A few pages and then off to do something like wash dishes..then another few pages. Then a load of work clothing.
The Mystery of the My Car Battery has been solved---we think. Husband was working in the garage and had my car on the battery charger for hours. Then at dusk, took the car for a ride. Dusk being the real mystery ender. Turns out the light in the car interior was switched on. Noticed and turned off. It had been on for days and weeks.. Wore the battery down each time we charged it.
I hadn't really noticed because I am having my husband drive me on all my errands in his car which I have never driven-myself. Never even tried. It has no key.. A button car.
He likes to drive and he likes to go places. It's safer we go together if you catch my meaning??? But occasionally, I like to be able to go somewhere by myself. Not often...which is why the battery went down during the Winter.
It's 59 degrees outside, cloudy, and my Weather Ap says it will rain in 60 minutes. I hope so.
Husband is going to the dentist at around 2pm. Xray (recent) showed a fragment from a tooth removed awhile ago. So I am guessing the dentist will try to get it out today. Ugh. I am sure I will be required to remove whatever dentist puts in the excavation. And make a new compress out of sterile gauze. From my much visited First Aid Box. I will also dispense drugs. My Dream Job.
