Well, I am sad to say that most of my rose bushes I planted near the front of the house have expired. The only one so far, knock on wood, that seems to be flourishing is the red rose bush at the corner of the house. What is really odd is that a rose bush that was planted some time ago has decided to come up, so I am nurturing it. The three climbing roses I planted along the fence seem to be doing better than the others have done. They have the most beautiful red and white blossoms. I keep praying they will make it.
It makes me wonder if they died because we have been notified here that our water has been contaminated with PFCS. So I will be purchasing a water filter system to be utilized for all our drinking water, especially considering how much water sister and I and my animals drink. Our water company does not seem to be overly concerned with the problem. Considering it’s their responsibility to keep the water safe they need to be the ones supplying the water filters for everyone instead of telling the public to buy them. But you all know how the bureaucrats system works, a bunch of numb nuts run it. They’re more concerned with filling their pockets than they are taking care of the people. What they need to remember is karma is a bitch and they have to face their actions eventually. Off my soapbox.
Well let me tell you if June temperatures were examples of what we have to look forward to in the future, global warming is definitely a big issue. We hit near record temperatures last week. One day the temperature hit a 103°. What is surprising is the fact that the humidity has been higher here this year than normal. Anyway it seems so to me. Thank God the next day they install the air conditioning system. It has been heavenly. I thank God every day for my adopted sister. Slowly but surely we are getting her house packed up so she can sell it. We still have the kitchen to do and the attic, which should be fun considering that I think she has a lot of Christmas stuff in the attic.. But then I have a lot of Christmas stuff in boxes in the garage. So I really can’t say anything about.
Around 20 May, I came down with one rotten cold. Would you believe I still have this horrible cough from it. It is not as bad as it has been. But is still aggravating. I have to go back to the doctor on Thursday the 30th. So we’ll see what she has to say.
I haven’t been doing much writing on THE HANGMAN, as we have been focused on getting sister packed up things ready to go back to Ohio. I will get it finished and uploaded this year. It has been such a great joy having her here with and when she leaves I am going to miss her terrible, but she knows she always has a place to come to. Her bedroom will always be waiting.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week and a great Fourth of July. Treat all of those you love like today is the only day you will have with them. Never hesitate to tell them that you love them. Yes, actions do always speak louder than words. But, sometimes they need to hear the words as well.
Keep writing, editing, and have a great week. Stay safe and always remember, NEVER GIVE UP, NEVER SURRENDER.
