Waiting For July 6

It has been awhile since I posted and a lot has happen, tomorrow we will start phase two on reopening the state. Our stimulus money arrived and both trying spent. We have brought clothing, camera, gun and of course I added books and plants.

I tried to change my Gravatar and only accomplished loosing my last pictures. I will keep trying.

Florist Geranium

Kathy and myself have added several plants. It was started from 2 inch pots planted together and have 5 lovely flowers. to brighten up my day.

The Friday before Mothers Day, Kathy and myself went shopping for and shoes and found a TREASURE in plants and I brought two named begonia. One is a Rhine Oh So Orange, tuberous begonia and the other is a hybrid, Netja Dark.

I manage to keep begonias them alive until they go in dormancy and I don’t know the secret to bring them out again.

Netja Dark

I brought a pair of sandals, several blouses and 3 sweaters to go with the new pants from Costco. I have the first spreadable belts. I am slowly becoming aware of the new normal. We used some of the money for a take out dinner it did us two meals. My husband got two pants and sandals. He didn’t want shirts.

During this time we where in the middle of severe thunderstorm that 4 strikes where outside the building. This was the worst storm I have been in.

        Oh, I wished I had that problem. Frank will start drawing social security this year. I wasn’t ready to retire this year, lost my job that I planned on retiring from in 9 more years. We have started a new business and will be up and running again in about a month. 🙂

    Betty, it is so wonderful to read of your shopping and plants. It is good not to feel like you have to pinch every penny. I’m glad things are easing up in your state with the virus. I am in one of three counties in NM that is still under the phase 1 because our numbers continue to increase in nursing homes and on the Navajo Reservation. People are getting tired of having their liberties restricted when the “expert advice” keeps changing. We do have options because we are close to Colorado and to our cabin in the mountains where restrictions are being slowly lifted.
