Today was one of those days when I had to remind myself of all the promises I made during the long, bleak winter not to complain when the weather heated up. If the last few days are any indication, we're in for a sizzling summer here in the North Bay. It slowed me down a bit, at a time when I can't really afford not to be going at full speed, but I'm not complaining. I don't do that any more. At least until the next time I do do that.
Not only is it hot, but it's also dry and windy, and there are already wildfires burning here in the county. I just had my yard mowed a month or so ago, and the grasses are already higher than they were before it was mowed. David helped me out last week by cutting back the weeds in the driveway and a patch around the house, but he didn't have the tools to tackle the whole yard. I'm sure my yard guy will come by before the place catches on fire. If I had his number I might even call him. (No, I wouldn't. I don't do phone calls.)
Now that the weather is heating up and I'm over the cold that had me down almost the whole month of April, I've finally been able to get to the store to pick up the fixings for the minestrone I was going to make before I got sick, back when it was still soup season. If I have to make it in the middle of the night after it cools off, I'm promising myself I'll make that minestrone this weekend. Tonight I made myself a potato-onion-fennel-tofu hash, so I'm not exactly starving myself. There are plenty of days when I don't feel like cooking, but on days when I come home from the store with fresh stuff, I need to overcome that laziness.
Thank you, everyone, for the support (not to mention for coming back here after all this time). I have to say, I'm doing okay. There are others who are suffering more than I ever did, and nothing is fully resolved, but I can take the hit. Learning lessons the hard way isn't a bad way to go. I think they stick with you longer.
I'm not going to promise to try to post every day, but I won't let the days and weeks (not to mention months) drag on between entries. Now that the ice is broken, I can move forward. I just wanted to find a way to let you know what has been happening, without names and details that I'm not comfortable revealing. Let what I've said in the previous entry stand on its own. I think that's the way to go.
Again, thank you so much. You don't know how much your support and good wishes mean to me.
