There is just something about being able to sit out on the patio on a sunny day in peace and quiet. Emphasis on ‘peace and quiet’. For the last couple of days, I’ve hung out outdoors to read. It’s been lovely.
For the most part.
Most of the neighbors are nice and quiet and leave each other well enough alone. There aren’t very many kids, either – at least not that live here on a daily basis. There are a few part-timers, though, if you catch my drift.
Anyway, apparently, one little girl’s decided to “adopt” me or something. She’s Kindergarten age and overall a sweet girl, but… ohhhh God help me, she’s chatty as they come. Definitely not good for the ‘peace and quiet’ part of being outside.
The other thing I’ve been doing the past couple of days is dehydrating my rosemary. I really wish I could use that more often, but the Rosemary takes so long to dry and I worry about letting it run unsupervised. Still, it was nice to finally get that done. I may check to see how long it would take to dry strawberries as we have a bunch of those, too.
