Friday Fragments July 20

Mommy's Idea
It's been a lazy week at house of Viridian so there is not much to tell.  See who else is fragmenting at Half-Past Kissin' Time.

*******
 We finally got some rain yesterday, hurrah! We are in a low level of drought but not nearly as bad as many places in the USA.

*******
I have spent much of my time this week being a cook, bottle washer, chauffeur, and referee.  I did manage to get in some quilting time though.

*******
The local farm has their sweet corn in and we had some the other day.  Yum!  Time to get some more.

*******
In other agricultural news, my mother in law has ripe cherry tomatoes on her plants, and plenty of green regular tomatoes.  Us?  The big plant has finally bloomed.  The little plant has a few buds.

*******
I am berating myself for not working enough.  I should just let go.  It is vacation time after all.

*******
I am almost done rereading an excellent book about what you didn't learn about the settling of America, by Tony Horwitz.  It is called a Voyage Long and Strange.  He visits places like St. Augustine and Jamestown now, and talks to many interesting (and sometimes a bit crazy) people.  How much I did not know about the early days of the Spanish!

Vacations by their very definition require you to do something else for awhile just to recharge and reenergize you.

It sounds like summer is being good to you: tomatoes, corn in the field, a good book to savor. Enjoy.
