This week has brought us to the first Friday of a new month! September already! It’s time for that Friday list of things I love!
1) I love these mountain views!
This is from a trip to Baltimore a few years ago, just at dusk. It’s a trip I wouldn’t mind repeating, by the way.
2) I love being able to grow some of our own food.
For a number of years, we had a sizable garden. One summer I canned over 80 quarts of green beans! We’ve really scaled back the past few years, and this summer we had a very small round spot (once served as the sandbox for the grandchildren) in which we planted two “hills” of potatoes that had sprouted in our pantry and a couple of tomato plants. This week, we dug the potatoes and were very surprised to see how nicely they had produced! We have about five pounds of Yukon Gold potatoes from those two hills!
3) I love Downton Abbey!
Just before the virus became an issue, and staying home became our policy, we toured the Downton Abbey exhibit at Biltmore. Can’t you just picture all the characters seated at this table? It appears that there might be room for an unexpected guest.:-)
4) I love cats!
This is our “grandcat,” Sugar! On this particular visit, she was brave enough to practice social distancing before that became a thing. Subsequent visits, however, have found her retreating to her favorite hiding spot under the bed.
5) I love to visit historical sites.
This is Plymouth Rock, on display (and hopefully protected from those who might think it cute to vandalize it) in Plymouth, MA. We first visited this site in the late 90’s, and then again last August.
Well, that does it for this edition. I hope your week has been good for you, though still very different, I’d imagine. We are heading into a three-day weekend. Have you been able to make special plans?
My hope for you is that you are able to be safe and stay well!
