Last night I was thinking about what I would blog about today. I try to upload the photos the night before and that way, IF we don’t have internet the next day, I can drive down the driveway to the top of the hill and post something from the phone because . . you do know . . the world would stop turning if I didn’t have a blog post! 🙂
Since getting the new internet, I’ve almost gotten over my fear of not having internet.
So, I said to Vince:
Me: I don’t have anything interesting to blog about tomorrow.
Me: No. I never took a single picture today.
Vince: You can tell them you took a nap!
Me: Is that the only thing you remember that I did today?
Vince: Well, I wasn’t watching you all day so, yes, that’s all I remember.
All day I was busy and he remembers that I took a nap! I kept telling myself I didn’t need to take a nap; I’d go to bed early but by about 5:45 p.m., I knew I wasn’t going to make it so I asked him to wake me up at 7. Otherwise, I would have slept til 9 or 10 p.m., then get up and never go back to sleep.
So, at 7 p.m., he yelled from the living room: JUDY!! I jumped up and said “What’s wrong?” He said . . nothing. You wanted me to wake you up at 7.
Who screams to wake someone up? Men! 🙂
Really, you know I did more than take a nap. I worked in the garden a bit. Vince went to the grocery store this morning so I had to put the groceries away, then I chopped up enough purple onions to fill the freeze dryer and got it going again. It takes a LOT of onions to fill those four trays.
I picked plums. I think all the plums are off the four trees that have been producing. There are three more trees that will be ripe in about a week. The bulk of the plums are done though.
Today I’ll make another batch of plum jam. That’s the first thing on the agenda. I have pork chops defrosted so I’ll make something with them – not sure what. I’ll probably pick chard and make something with that. Not sure what. See a pattern here?

Need something to do with chard and asparagus! Also need smoothie recipes.
Naps are really good for your body and soul. You deserve every one you take!
Nelle Coursey says
I was about to say I never knew of you doing nothing all day long! Unless you were sick or something! You did a lot and you deserved that nap!! Do not let him make you feel bad! Just kidding, I know he knew you did a lot of work!
I thought of you today when I heard Andy Griffith say (as sheriff of Mayberry) “Well, ain’t that picking your peaches before they’re plump?” 😀
