We’ve been blessed with a beautiful few days of high pressure weather that brought blue skies, moderate temperatures and a nice breeze. I have been spending hours on end O.U.T.S.I.D.E. Hurray! Just the kind of weather that calls for a a simple meal that can also be eaten out doors.
Much gardening has been getting done. We’re pretty much all planted out and the fall crops are beginning to sprout up. The scapes are coming on and the corn is cruising right along, surely will make the “knee high by fourth of July” mark. The elderberries are beginning to flower and the strawberries have yielded vast quantities. I’m so very thankful that the rains have ceased.
Training is going well except for a glitch with my right elbow. Tried doing my barbell curls (30#) and the elbow had a sharp pain that said, “Oh no you don’t!” At this stage of my life, I can take the hint and not push it 😉
Summer family reading time has come. We share a book and take turns reading aloud. Tonight we are beginning The Pearl, by John Steinbeck. We often do dinner and a movie on Friday night but this book will only take a few days to read and we have no movies on tap. Happy wonderful weekend everyone.
