Good Things

After surveying the garden damage and feeling seriously bad for a bit, decided to just get away and joined daughter no. 2 at the monthly blues jam downtown. Music always helps and I was glad I went.  I am much more philosophical about the garden today. Since it's too late in the season to replant some things, I get time off from hard work and sore muscles. The strawberries seem to be ok and looking out the window I can see the buds on the old white rose peeking out. All is not lost, just a little fucked up.

Anah had her appointment with the surgeon yesterday and he wants her to do another month of PT and then a reassessment so great news. That opened us up to being able to go to Colorado in June to hear Ziggy Marley and do touristy things. Had already our purchased tickets  and written them off as a loss, but looks like we'll make it after all. Booked flight last night.

Was going to trim the lilacs today but will put that off till they are drier. And besides I am really sore from working hard yesterday.

The husband is contacting the insurance company about the damage to the car and roof and we have swept the broken leaves off the deck. Time to move forward again, though my plan is to avoid the garden till the plants have some recovery time. But wait, there's still asparagus, guess I'll have to avert my eyes.

Now to mix up a marinade for some chicken breasts and relax. There are always books to read.

So, so sorry about the garden. We had a "kitchen garden" on the commune, which we used to grow a lot of the food needed for daily consumption, and my grandparents had the same right across from the farmhouse. In both cases, they were A LOT of work and essential to the health and well-being of the family, so I feel your loss.

GOOD news about Anah! So very glad to hear that! There's absolutely no medicine as good as simply being young and I hope that, along with being very conscientious about the P/T, she'll be able to fully recover without the surgery.

Wishing your husband good luck with the insurance company. I know that can be a hassle to deal with but hope they help. My first, and so far only experience with that magnitude of hailstorm happened years ago when I was working at a Toyota garage down in Houston.

One minute I was hard at it in the middle of a busy shop and then I heard the first couple of "Tick-ticks" on the metal roof and I looked up and everyone was running for the doors. WTF! And then, literally seconds later, the aisles of the shop were filled with employee's cars!

Then, everyone just went back to work as if nothing had happened. It was an amazing performance and one of several weather-related events that happened in the nine months or so that I was down there. But at least I wasn't blamed for that one because it was something they'd obviously experienced before I showed up, lol.

Anyway, good luck with your recovery from all of that and good luck to Anah on her continued recovery as well...
