A rose for you, my pal!

So…what’s the Monday Ballot?

Wonderful query! It isn’t, opposite to its identify, an precise ballot, like with little clicky buttons. It’s only a checklist of kind of random questions I’ve been posting on this weblog each Monday morning for the previous quadrillion years (since 2007).

1. A interest you’d like to start out?

I fell down an web rabbit gap final evening researching rising heirloom roses in containers. LOL!

3. Have you ever gone swimming a lot this summer time?

After we had been in Hawaii, sure, I used to be within the water just about day-after-day as a result of Connor wanted somebody to observe her whereas she cannonballed and backflipped and whatnot. Right here within the Bay Space, I’ve solely gone swimming as soon as in our neighborhood pool. It’s not heated (a travesty!), so I solely go in on days after we’ve had a heat spell.

Now I’m higher about recognizing and listening to my physique when it wants a self-care break.

I work freelance so I can schedule day without work after I see match, nonetheless at considered one of my writing gigs they do have Fridays off. It doesn’t appear to cease folks from emailing me although, ha ha ha!

Completely satisfied final day of July, pal. Is it simply me, or is that this summer time flying by? I’m prepared but additionally NOT prepared for the varsity 12 months to start out. It’s been so good to have household time and plenty of time exterior with my folks, however I additionally miss the routine. As somebody who previously lived by the seat of their pants, I can’t consider I’m saying that, but it surely’s the place I’m at in life proper meow.

Oh, one thing sudden occurred final weekend! My neighbor hooked me up with some merchandise from her farm, and now I’ve acquired basil and zucchini for days. I’m going to make pesto with the basil, however I’ve but to discover a go-to recipe that’s child pleasant. Aspect be aware: Connor loves pesto, however she’s explicit about it. Anywho, in case you have a pesto recipe that you simply LOVE please move it alongside.
