I Have Not Succumbed

To either the Plague or social unrest that seems to be going on somewhere beyond my quiet farm. I haven't been in public since early March, have rarely left the farm except for a couple of car rides in the country.

The husband has long done the grocery shopping so I just have to make to a list. I have an easy existence in many ways.

We've had a lot of rain and the garden harvest has been abundant. Strawberries were sweet but not terribly plentiful, cabbage, cauliflower and brocooli did well. Cut a mix of greens (mustard, chard, kale and collards) to cook up later. Pulled a few carrots yesterday and will roast beets and carrots tomorrow. Beans are coming on. Oh and the snow peas were great.

I have amused myself by relearning Spanish and having a go at German and Danish. Find it absolutely fascinating and fun and can pass a lot of time with that.

In the complaints department: My back hurts a lot, gardening while it seems like fun is hard work. My anxiety has been out the roof, my sleep erratic and my breaking point fragile. Too much cosmic angst!

Of course, I'm always reading. Currently the first in a series by Barbara Neely's "Blanche on the Lam." Had this book before the social unrest and only when I started to read it, did I discover the author was a black woman and an activist. Synchroncity.. I love it.

I'm getting restless and would like to travel, but really is there anywhere I want to go? or could go for that matter. I try to remain hopeful that lasting change will occur in this country, change that brings equality,less violence and all those other things I've wanted to happen since the 60's.

I do often read what everyone is writing so as not to totally lose touch even though I know the best way is to be regular about participation.

Be well...
