Do you ever wonder in what direction you life is going? In these pandemic times it feels like I’m waiting for life to start over again and time is moving very slowly. My life is passing by while I stay in place. I don’t feel so frustrated all the time. I do find things to do. I have been able to start reading books again. For a while, I could not focus on them. I recently read, ‘Where The Crawdads Sing’ by Delia Owens and a new book By Ann Cleeves, ‘The Long Call.’ Ann Cleeves has written two book series that have been made into popular television mystery shows, ‘Vera’, and ‘Shetland.’ I had not read any of her books and now I am looking forward to next book coming out in September with the Vera character. I bought a collection of the ‘Vera’ paperbacks and two other paperback mysteries I found on Amazon. So I am all stocked up with mysteries for now.
My eggplant is surviving with the protective tent over it and two more are coming in. I am just not sure when to harvest it or if it will be any good to eat, another mystery.
I am not trying to brush off how difficult these times are. I consider myself a patient person but this is a major test of patience. It is still a work in progress for me and I have to keep trying to do better.
