The purple passion fruit. Passiflora incarnata  The apricot of the prairie.  I finally managed to keep 2 alive and looking good.  Now I am trying to decide the right place to plant them.  Also for the rain to stop long enough to get it done.   It sure has been a chili May.

I love cemeteries. They're so peaceful and full of history. Of course, I research my family tree (and my husband's), so I've spent a lot of time searching for graves. Several years ago, I had a couple hours free between work and my night classes, so I went to a few cemeteries and photographed every single stone for the Find a Grave website. I've been meaning to do that again now that the weather is nice (and before the world goes back to normal). My old office building was across the street from a cemetery. On my lunch breaks, I considered going for walks through it, but I never did. I wasn't sure if anyone would think that it's disrespectful, since I wasn't visiting any graves. I guess maybe I could have.
LOL now that you mention it, they weren't there when I came back around.

I drive by a cemetery to take my dog for his run in the country.  Passing the cemetery I notice a couple, ladies,  walking  relatively fast paced.  I didn't notice a car.  So I assumed they weren't visiting.  I thought, now that's an idea.  Way to avoid crowds and still get that morning walk in.  I would have never thought to do that.    But I don't go to cemeteries as a rule.

This year is moving along at a steady pace.  My family won't be doing anything special this weekend.

People don't seem to care about the virus anymore.  I have never gone out much.  I don't like crowds to begin with.   So if I  go to look for plants or even any shopping I just wait until there isn't many people and I don't browse much.   If you can do curbside pick up.  Would ease it a bit for you.  I don't like others doing my shopping esp. for groceries.

our yards are connected in a way that it is all connected front and back.  I also think there are better more safe choices for this job.  But I was happy to see that, the next day the dandelions were up and more beautiful than the day before.

I stepped outside the other night to see what was happening down the street.  As I was watching that unfold I noticed my neighbor spraying his yard.  Killing what people think are weeds.  Well I said something to him about it.  I was nice.  I think.  I did get my point across.  Told him what it was he was killing and why he probably shouldn't.  One of the claims I made to him is that he will probably need that food when the stores are empty.  That brought up the price of meat and how little there is on the shelves and that you can only get a limited amount.  He continued to kill the clover and dandelion and other things that are edible.  I so much didn't mind him killing his food, but those chemicals blow to my yard.  That is what my concern is.  I don't use chemicals in my yard.  I eat the lambs quarter, and clover.  I like the look of dandelions. 
My saying something, surprised me.  I normally don't confront people.  Even though it didn't change what he was doing,  I felt better for talking to him about it.

I like not have to go to work.  I even like not having to send kids to school.  I like the days my daughter and housemate go to work.  I seem to get more done when they are gone.  The day is less stressful.

All my life I have heard people complain about having to go to work go to church having to go anywhere from home.    Now what I hear is opposite of that.  I like staying home.  Even as tired of being crowded with my grandkids here.  I would much rather stay home than,  having to go to work.  I like not having to get kids up and take them to school.  This is a type of freedom for me.
I am getting fed up with people that won't believe that this is serious.  Since these people can't guarantee that I won't get sick and I won't die.  I think I will still believe and take this virus seriously.  I don't live in fear.  I don't think that I am being lied to about the seriousness of this virus.  I also won't take the risk of my getting someone else sick.

I wish I did.  My dad would brew coffee then drink it with ice.  I understand that, that is not the same thing.
