It’s the last day of May! Where on earth did this month go? Temperature wise, summer weather is full-throttle. It’s been in the 80’s and 90’s here in Wisconsin. Mind you, I am not a fan of hot weather. I like my temperature in the 40-60 degree range!
So what have I been up to? I’ve been planting shrubs in our backyard because – well – there’s not much out there just yet. So I am slowly building a hedge of shrubs around the perimeter of the backyard. I have the left side covered. I planted two arborvitae and four dwarf burning bushes. (pictures not my own)
Next to our deck on the other side of the yard, I planted an older (larger) burning bush. Today, provided it does not rain, I have two lilies and several other plants to get in the ground in the front yard.
I am also working on a different book. I put aside my political story for a while as I am a bit burned out on it. I want to write something fun and different than anything else I have ever written.
With summer upon us, it is increasingly hard for me to concentrate on writing when I would rather be outside and doing other things. I am in the middle of reading other people’s work right now too which I must finish before I do my own thing. I need more hours in a day to get all the things done that I would like.
My postings have been few and far between lately, I know. I just haven’t had much to say. For me, I would rather have something I need to say rather than prattle on and on about nothing – which is sort of what this post is.
Anyway, that is what is going on in my life right now. I hope everyone is having a terrific Memorial Day weekend! 🙂
