Oh, Tuesday – I have nothing today so I am hoping that if I just start writing inspiration will hit.
This weather has been exactly what my annuals like – they are growing like mad and are all showy and beautiful.
The perennials are at the “in between” stage and I am looking for things that will bloom later in the summer to add in next year. Although, the Foxglove looks a bit bedraggled, it is still blooming.
Our Butterfly Bush is spectacular this year and it is taller than our pergola!
Audiobooks have been the best thing this summer. I have listened to so many great books by great narrators. Currently, I am listening to The Help and I am enjoying it – although, perhaps enjoying is not the best way to describe a painful novel however, the narration is superb.
Steve bottled his third batch of beer yesterday and on a related note, since the beer brewing began weight loss has been in a holding pattern. Steve says this is unrelated, but I think it is very relevant!
That is all I have for this Tuesday – I am going to try making these this morning. I will let you know how they turn out!
I also love audio books, and I think The Help is one of the best. Perfect to listen to while in the garden, drinking beer, or in the kitchen making bourbon-soaked cherries. They sound delicious!
GLad you annuals are thriving. Mine are shocked or something. THey went from prolific to oh dear in a week. Perhaps the onslaught of heavy rains? I thought they’d like that. Perhaps they needed to be cut back, which I did. Anyhow, glad YOURS are showy and lovely
I simply must have some of those cherries!
I love audiobooks, too — I shall listen to several on the planned road trip! Right now I am starting Steve Jobs; interesting.
I read “The Help” several years ago and really enjoyed it. The movie is good, too!
Audiobooks are my favorite! one I especially enjoyed that I don’t think you’ve read is Sue Monk Kidd’s Invention of Wings (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18079776-the-invention-of-wings); there are two narrators and both are excellent. and I bookmarked those cherries – what a great gift idea!
I too am becoming quite a fan of audiobooks…and will try Mary’s suggestion…I saw Sue Monk Kidd years ago at a library conference…she is quite an interesting person.
Yeah, I too think the beer is relevant…
Audio books are my best friend! I’ve got three in the works. I’m trying to keep them all straight. lol
