I have several blogs half finished. So fucking much goes on that it’s hard to get one out before something else goes on and distracts me.
Let’s do the updates:
I’m doing pretty good. I currently have laryngitis. Went to the ENT doctor today and had my throat scoped to see what’s going on. He says inflamation. DUH. I could have diagnosed that one myself! Anyway, a course of antibiotics and prednisone, and hopefully I’ll have my voice back! Other than that I am feeling strong and good.
My gardens are thriving. Everything is producing! Blueberry bushes out front are loaded with ripe berries that I’m picking as fast as I can! I froze some today. Going out to pick more in a little while. I have two types of bushes, both high bush types. One is a super fat berry, the other is a regular wild blueberry strain. Oh, and my weed clone is doing well too, as you can see!
The dogs are doing great. Lulu shed in a major way this year. She looks so different ! Shed out her undercoat, it just came out in fist fulls. I attribute it to her being spayed recently, the hot, hot weather and it was just time to shed! She’s perfectly healthy.
Nola is doing great too. She’s in her glory on her daily squirrel hunts. If she ever caught one I don’t know what she’d do! In the pic above she’s diligently on guard at the bird feeding station.
My girl and her daughter will be here in a few days. They’ll be staying with me thru mid-August. I’m very excited to have them here, and for a good long visit! I’ve got a few outings planned for us, like a trip up to the White Mountains, a picnic day at the lake, fishing locally, a trip to York’s Wild Kingdom (zoon and amusement park), day trips to the beach and go-carting. I’m sure we’ll all have a blast.
The long-distance relationship thing has been working out pretty well for us. We talk daily, text alot, and Skype frequently. It takes energy and commitment, but I believe we’ve both got that. This woman treats me like gold, it’s just awesome. I completely adore her. And I’ll do whatever it takes to keep us happily together.
Those are the personal updates…you all know I am active in politics…and I am so ashamed of the performance that Trump put on in Helsinki with Putin. He’s a traitor. That’s all I have to say. I only wish he were treated and persecuted as a traitor, as he should be right now.
It’s a gorgeous night, I need to go enjoy it. You all take care.
What’s been the best part of your summer thus far?
