Home projects have been occupying my time. I have also propagated some cuttings. My house plants are doing well. My husband bought these off my wishlist and I love them. My zinnia are not doing so hot. I think I planted them too early. Now I am trying to find replacements for the ones that are pooping out on me. I also want to get bulbs in the ground around my mailbox. I like low maintenance stuff outside. My marigolds are doing well. My shasta daisies bit the dust...I do not understand that, they are usually indestructible. I have some lantana coming in nicely and my roses are doing great.
I have written and received over 100 pieces of mail while in quarantine. I have made a few new friends this way that I am planning in my mind to visit when all this craziness is done.
I have become really good at painting trim. I have one painting project left inside the house, my sons room. It would be done already if I could move his furniture. My husband is going to paint the outside furniture and he already has the concrete mold to start extending the patio once the fence and retaining walls are fixed. Feeling pretty good about getting stuff done.
I have been checking off specimens as I observe them in my Birds of Georgia field guide. We have an abundance of Robins, Cardinals and Chickadees.
Our shelter in place is lifted for most part and the one for my mom will be lifted this week. At that time the zipline/ropes course will reopen and I will have something to do again. Rivers are opening up and we have a kayak date on the calendar. My Niece had her baby and I am taking a trip to Hilton Head in a couple of days to snuggle some babies. It is so nice to have things to look forward to.
Some people are still not leaving their homes except to protest. Those same people were giving the protestors in Michigan grief about spreading Covid. I am pretty tired of the hypocrisy on all ends of the spectrum. I am just going to do me and stay the heck off social media except to check on new posts of the babies. If you are sick of all the hate and arguing and double standards and just feeling like we are living in the movie Idiocracy, then check back here for the opposite of everything else on the internet.
