|The trees, grass, and shrubs are incredibly green right now.|
Rain, rain, rain. That’s what we’ve had nearly all day Thursday and part of the day Wednesday. As I write this Thursday night, it’s supposed to last until Friday morning. I don’t know how many inches we’ve gotten here at the house—we don’t have a rain gauge—but some areas were supposed to get up to four inches.
A critter got into the radishes planted in the uncovered portion of the raised bed garden this week. I’m surprised it took this long.
Larry found critter footprints on the raised bed and on pipe he’s using to put in a watering system (more on that next week).
Apparently, it’s a groundhog. We saw one in the backyard Thursday, munching away on the grass and clover. I think he’s cute. Larry does not.
No, I didn’t get a picture. But if he sticks around, I may get another chance.
Speaking of radishes, I apparently didn’t thin them soon enough and/or enough period, and they couldn’t grow. Lesson learned. Many more lessons to come, I’m sure.
I’m reading a very good book called Let Your Life Speak: Listening for the Voice of Vocation, by Parker J. Palmer.
My minister recommended Palmer’s books to me, so I ordered this one and started reading it Thursday.
I am already marking passages and realizing that this is one of those books I will want to read again and again.
It’s raising questions in me that I want to write about. Sometimes I figure things out best when I write.
Tonight I’ll take photos for the newspaper at the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life event in Rustburg, our county seat. I’ll try to get photos of the opening walks for survivors and caregivers and candid photos of participants.
The Relay is certainly a good cause. So many people’s lives are affected by cancer in some way.
Take care, dear readers, and have a wonderful weekend!
