A little slice of heaven? Yesterday a very thoughtful neighbour stopped in for a social distancing visit. He brought a loaf of bread with him to give to me. I haven't seen bread since March. I have never enjoyed a slice of bread so much or appreciated eating one as I did last night.
Moving on to spring, although ironically the weather is calling for snow tonight and tomorrow. The temperature is supposed to suddenly drop because the polar vortex is coming back for a visit... oh yay, like that relative who always shows up unannounced and not welcomed.
Yesterday I did cuttings of my grandmother's Coleus flowers. I'm the last one of the family who is keeping the tradition going. Everyone else is either too elderly now or moved to an apartment.
The cuttings save on me having to buy a lot of flowers, plus there is that connection to my maternal grandmother (who I still miss), this is what they look like by mid summer.
Being the king of procrastination, I also did something yesterday that I should have done long ago, I sowed spinach seeds indoors. I have been thinking about doing this for five weeks now. If I had of gone ahead like I wanted, I probably would have been eating spinach leaves by now. Anyway our growing season doesn't start until June so I will have little plants ready by then, hopefully!
