Lots has been happening here at Muses Acres since school let out in Mid-May (Gary and colleges). Gary spends lots of time watering our grass, flowers and vegetable garden, since rain is beyond rare. We did get 5 meals ( 5 ears each meal) from the corn and even now in late June we have tomatoes, peppers and some spices. Eating tomatoes as you pick them is fabulous!
June second I had surgery on my right foot which grounded me for three weeks! Not being able to drive was very difficult. And two days after the surgery, I started on my new HGC Diet. I figured if I was stuck at home all the planning and grocery lists could be made up. Amazingly enough the foot has healed great and the diet is working beyond my wildest dreams. Gary has been very supportive (which is great). I now weight less than I have for about 30 years. So far I can’t see a change but as long as the scales tell it’s happening I’m over joyed.
Haylee attended a Fairy Dance Camp for three days. She had a great time and is dancing all the time now. This was her first dance experience. Here she had gotten her Pixie Stik.
Beyond my dancer, day school and dealing with the heat I guess it has been quieter than I thought.
I hope to get back to working on my rock garden soon. Tommy has brought home some more rocks. Some are so beautiful I must figure out how to place them for best effect.
Most of the birds around now are summer residents. We have had several batches of Swallows. They are working 4 nests around the house now. Our Black Bellied Whistling Ducks, who have been absent for several years have returned to the pond. We still have a few Hummingbirds, that chose to stay around. The Cardinals are raising their young fast and furiously. We love to watch the birds and the crazy squirrels. There have even been several tiny green tree frogs around lately. Hope they don’t become someone’s lunch.
So drop by Muses Acres and sit a spell. The breeze in the shade makes the outdoors almost bearable.
