I’m excited to share with you a new series I’m starting called, “Talk Till Dawn”, I want this to be about my everyday life, the things I’m reading, eating, my everyday ups and down, along with photos that I’ve taken over the week.
My life and home is far from perfect even though I always share with you pretty home decor picture. Now from time to time I’ll give you a look at how things can get out of control like everyone else’s life.
May is almost over and that means it’s time to catch up on what’s been happing thing month. Michigan has had some crazy weather that’s for sure. We went from cold and rainy to hot and humid in the span of 24 hours. We don’t even have a chance to adjust here we just jump right into warm days. I think 70’s hot but it’s really hot at 87 which we’ve had for the past few days. I don’t even like those temps at the height of summer. My hubby loves this type of heat but not me. I’m a 72 with a breeze kind of girl all day long. It was so hot even my chickens were panting.
I’ve slowly been picking away at getting the vegetable garden planted. I was either dodging the nighttime frost or the dreaded hot and humid days. I plant a little, go inside and cool down, then back out to plant a little more. Today I’m going to get the corn and cucumbers in and I’m done. I expanded the garden this year so my designated area for pumpkins will be food we can eat this year. It’s not in the ideal location, it gets no shade, and it’s easy access for critters so this may be a mistake but I’m going to give it a try.
Michigan is still on lockdown but I’m giving up on my daily report of what I’m doing. I’m assuming the majority of you are in states that are getting back to a more normal routine. Hubby had to go out of state for work and was so excited to actually go into a restaurant and sit down for a meal. Wow how we miss the little things.
I’ve been having an issue with my bike tire, it keeps going flat even after hubby’s fixed it several times and wouldn’t you know it there’s not a bike to be had anywhere to buy and parts are just as scarce. It’s my favorite activity too and I’m pretty disappointed I may have to give it up until bike production in the USA can be done. Most bike frames are made in China and a bikes no good without the frame. I did find a company here in Detroit Michigan that manufactures bikes but they don’t make anything like I’m looking for. I like a granny bike; no gears, big comfy seat, handlebars that let me sit upright, and wide tires.
Thank you to everyone who’s reached out to me with regards to being an empty nester. I sure haven’t handled it well and depression and sadness are a constant friend to me lately. I’m kicking around in this big old house and I don’t like it. I know I have to get my act together and shape up and there are days I’m better but life sure sucks sometimes. It’s even harder without my Mom; I wish I could ask here how she did it. I do remember her saying it was hard when I left home but she didn’t show it when I was around. Somehow she sucked it up and carried on like a big girl.
Grace you asked to see an Oriole on my homemade feeder, so here’s a pic for you! Until next time thank you for taking the time to Talk Till Dawn!
