Monday Musings: How Does Your Garden Grow?

This year? Not so great. We started the gardening year during the main part of the COVID-19 lockdown, so we weren't going anywhere. Which meant that getting in things like planting medium and other yearly needs was put off for a bit. I did start some of the vegetables indoors as usual, but I had … Continue reading Monday Musings: How Does Your Garden Grow?

Monday Musings: So, This is January, Right?

I am sitting here in my living room, with windows open and the outdoor temperature is 65 degrees F. I checked the calendar. Yep, it's January 11. We were supposed to have rain along with the warm temps, but that seems to have passed us by in favor of sun and clouds. It is supposed … Continue reading Monday Musings: So, This is January, Right?

It's past the middle of March, and this morning when I came downstairs, the weather station was reading 11 degrees with a "feels like" temperature of 4. That's just not fair to those of us who muster our way through … Continue reading Monday Musings: It’s So God-damn Cold, It’s Gonna Snow Until June

Monday Musings: A Nip in the Air, Vacation’s Over, and Football

It has been cooler here in the Northeast lately. I can't say I am not enjoying it. I am not a fan of extreme weather. I don't like really hot or really cold. This beginning of Fall cooling from the heat of summer has felt good. I have had windows open and the AC has … Continue reading Monday Musings: A Nip in the Air, Vacation’s Over, and Football

Monday Musings: Another Week Goes By

Without a lot of Spring-like weather. It's been teasing us- the mornings started out nice and sunny and pretty, then a couple hours later, the clouds move in and it is gray and overcast the rest of the day. The temps haven't been very nice, either. This weekend has been rainy and chilly. The weather … Continue reading Monday Musings: Another Week Goes By
