The will to preserve is often the difference between failure and success. ~ David Sarnoff
Welcome September! Another week has passed. I’ve now been working from home for six months now. The British Hubby full intends to be wfh for the next six months. If you haven’t figured out yet, I work in the educational field. My wfh is a bit more fluid as the COVID situation evolves and changes. What’s happening this week? Normally, the British Hubby and I would be preparing for a weekend trip on Ulysses. This year we decided to go a different route and tried to bring a VRBO experience to us. We thought of our favorite parts from our various adventures.
This lead us to new outdoor seating with a sun umbrella and some fun lighting. Over the next year, we’ll slowly add more lighting and expand the fun. We’re also investigating ways to let the kitties out and keep them from attacking the wildlife. Now our outdoor space is some place we hangout, knit, work, read, bbq, sleep and have meals. In many ways, this was improved our daily lives more than a few days away ever could have.
I’ve also started having dance parties to get me up and moving from too much screen time and meetings. This week, I’ve been jamming out to Little Big’s Tacos. It’s ridiculously over the top, but it makes me smile.
Gardening Update: A few more sunflower plants have stopped blooming. Now I’m waiting for the plants to dry out so I can harvest the seeds. That’s if I get to them before the wildlife. I anticipated the squirrels pilfering our sunflower harvest, but not Stellar Jays too. I’m quite happy to support all local wildlife not just the bees. I did see a hummingbird at one this week. I didn’t realize they were attacked to this flower.
The first flower photo is the neatest sunflower yet. This must have come from the variety pack. A quick search indicates it’s a teddy bear sunflower. I must admit, these are really cute, and I’m probably going to see if I can order more of just these seeds. I’m also trying a cat grass variety for Gracie. Ernie and Burt want nothing to do with it. And that’s one of the last two stalks to bloom. Could these turn out purple?
How’s your September going?
