But taking it very, very easy. As much as I’m able of course…. ;-) Hot, dry summer weather helps, getting some use out of the hammock for a change. Fingers itching to finish that last bit of hedge that didn’t make a trim, but I do not want to feel the way I did last week. Garden is running rampant too – but it’s so dry this year it would have been a struggle to grow anything on purpose anyway. I see that some of my hollyhock seeds from Mary Jo have sprouted, otherwise, nothing has come up. I hope I can use my window contraption next year!

I got sent home from ER on the same day without treatment, haven’t heard yet about the monitor I was supposed to wear for a week. I’m guessing they may have ditched the idea because they didn’t think I looked sick enough. Apparently if you’ve had “stress burnout” once, you can never ever get any other illness after! Which I guess would be pretty cool if it were true. Oh well. My local doc gave me pills to lower my pulse, but they’re not really doing anything.

THANK YOU for all the well wishes, they were much appreciated. :bear: <3

We’re mending the barn roof with the (paid) help of a neighbour. If the heatwave continues we’ll renew the top of the house as well, since I’m not making the cash needed for an entirely new roof (and preferably remodelling of the whole upstairs while we’re at it). What a godawfull mess, but necessary, the tiles were beginning to come off in the winter storms and the “chimney” falling apart. We don’t need it since we don’t have cows in there to stink it up, just the two ponies coming and going as they please. (sorry, I didn’t think to take before photos) The sparrows that have been breeding like rats under the roof for years will have to find new accomodations, I’ll have to look into how I may help them.
