Random Thoughts for Sunday

I’m pretty content so far with my strawberry bed this season.  It looks like I’ll have a bumper crop of berries if all goes well (knock on wood).  That may mean I get to make some strawberry jam come early July.  Woo hoo!

My sweet potatoes aren’t doing so good and I’m worried they’re not gonna make it.  I did a little research as to why they could be not growing and am trying a couple things.  I’d hate to have to order new plants and not at least try to coax what I have along.

My brain is arguing with my legs today.  I keep reminding myself to try to walk normally but it doesn’t always work and especially when I start getting tired.  Yes, I hear you in my head telling me to slow down and relax.  I’m trying hard not to be angry at everything but I think I slip up from time to time.  I have people here treating me like I’m an invalid and it frustrates me even tho I know they have the best intentions.  I keep telling them to quit hovering and let me try and try again and try again.  I know my Irish stubbornness may piss some people off  but I don’t want to give in and just give up.

How’s that for a Sunday?  I have family coming to help with yard work today.  We have a crew to feed today.  Having family around is good.   🙂

I think this is the part where you are to write something clever and witty about yourself. I’m solidly locked in middle age and content with myself. I love to travel to see and experience new things, new foods and new drink. I also like to cook and bake mainly because I like to eat. And I found out that I’m pretty good at both. I'm not a professional blogger nor do I want to be. I'll leave that to others while I'll kick back and post whatever suddenly pops into my brain. I'm more spontaneous anyway. And the rest we’ll just kinda sorta figure out as we go along. Feel free to leave comments or even just to say "Hello". Find me at: https://mnghostt.wordpress.com.

  1. Nice strawberries you have on the way up. The other thing about relaxing orders – it’s your head and you decide what’s best for you. But it’s good to hear that you have people helping you too. “Pling”

    1. I just hafta keep the gummys from eating them as the pick them. last year is was like …

      “OK, I picked 14 nice ones. How many do you have?”


      “None? How did you end up with none?”

      “We ate them.”

      it’s hard to argue with 5 year olds.

  3. When I was working on Coronary Care a guy came in with an MI (myocardial infarction) heart attack. He would do push ups when no one was looking. He did recover but he was taking a big chance. Good idea to accept the help when needed and to rebuild your strength later when you’ve healed.

    1. my niece and her husband came to help. he had a good time riding my Cub Cadet all over the place. my nephew showed up too and had a good time with my trimming toys. it was hard to sit back and watch instead of doing.

  4. I am proud of you for having that attitude not to give in and give up. Keep fighting this whatever it is that is causing the problems. I bet you will overcome it ♥♥♥ Strawberries have come and gone down here in the land of eternal summer !
