Oh my, doesn't time fly..... I cleaned out a couple of my raised beds, then went and bought one each of: eggplant, zucchini, and capsicum, and one punnet of basil, and one of mixed lettuce. They are still alive and growing after a couple of hot days. This afternoon I erected some shadecloth to protect them from the hot, late afternoon sun, thinking back I'm almost sure that the lack of shade has contributed to the demise of my other plantings.
I've been doing quite a bit of sewing, getting in some practise for a quilt that will be a kind of long term project for me, and also starting to put the finishing touches to some other projects.
He probably things that if he can't see us then we can't see him.
Slowly getting back into a routine, I read somewhere that it takes 21 days to make a habit, and I reckon that is true, but I also think that it takes about 5 days to lose the habit. I'm finding that as I get older, I need some sort of a routine to make sure the things that need to be done (washing, ironing, cooking, all that mundane but necessary sort of stuff) are done, and that once they are done, I can be happy, relax and do whatever I want to do (reading, quilting, gardening, or nothing).
