Oh! My! there are several things that are on my priority list that I have resolved to accomplish this year:
4~ I had resolved in January to stay in touch with friends and family by the post mail, that has been short lived because of Covid 19! I am not giving up, I know we have texting, e-mail, but there is something so special about receiving a letter or card in the mail.
3~A friend asked this question on her Facebook page and said I could borrow for Hodgepodge...You're only allowed to buy 5 things at the grocery store, and all must start with the first letter of your first name. Whatcha buying?
Soup, seafood, salad dressing, sandwich bread, sweet potatoes.
Mr P. and I are in survival mode for now, busy in the garden, seeds have been planted, weeding now, planning for summer and fall harvest. I am making plans to preserve the fruits and veggies we are growing.
A little project I completed yesterday, these English peas were planted a few weeks ago I weeded them, put up stakes with twine so they could start climbing, I will come back next week and add three more rows of twine, this makes picking the pods easier, also makes weeding easier. Mulch was added to control weeds, and keep moisture in. Today I will be transplanting Zinnias between the rows. At the end are carrots and radishes.
We had some late frosts, that hurt some tender plants , we are preparing to replant them, others are thriving .MrP was busy this morning discing the garden to replant. Be still my heart, I love my 'Farm Boy'
5~ Share a favorite quote or saying about strength.
I have memorized so many Bible verses that speak of strength, and quote them so often.
6~ Insert your own random thoughts here.
I have some thoughts on this pandemic that has plagued our country and the world, but that would take pages and pages!
I will just say this.
This is the view from my kitchen window, the humming birds entertain me as I wash dishes while admiring the roses., the birds and squirrels via for sunflower seeds. I see them carrying on as they do each season, trusting that their creator will take care of them, I think there is a lesson for me to be learned here.
Psalm 112:7 He will not be afraid of evil tidings, his heart is stedfast, trusting in the Lord
Thanking Joyce for hosting Hodgepodge Wednesday, please join I would love to visit with you.
