Lockdown day three

Knitted a little, should have done a lot more.

Last year’s volunteer Sungold tomato plant, bursting into bloom all over after the rains, hanging off the remains of the one that would have been four years old had it made it through another winter. I guess it didn’t mind being a toddler but it did not want to sign up for preschool.

This being pick-up day, I happened to step outside to bring the bins back from the curb at about 4:00 and saw my neighbor several houses away. She waved her arms and shouted hello and I waved back and it felt wonderful to see another human being out there. We’re all a little starved for contact.

And while everybody’s working from home and relying on their networks, Comcast went out. This post via my phone.

Thank you for sharing those lovely colors!

If it’s any consolation, I lost my TV signal, 2 days ago, and spent an hour on the phone with technical support, yesterday morning. Everything is back to normal, thankfully.

Lockdown means less knitting and reading and more packing. I have at least 2 parties interested iin buying my house.

A friend, out pruning grapevines, suddenly found a cable between her pruners instead of vines but didn’t realize it until — SNIP! Thankfully, it was the old land line, no longer needed.

To be without internet right now would indeed be a challenge.

The color of those peach blossoms is ‘electric’ I think must be the word. Hope they give you (not the critters) a lot of peaches this year. Then you won’t have to go out for that taste.
