    I'd never seen wild peonies before--a real treat, nuthatch. Is it true that peonies bloom for only about a week each year?

    I've never seen wild peonies before either. They are beautiful.

    I Have seen snake skins when I was growing up. People would point them out to me and tell me the snake had shed it's skin.

    Nuthatch, so sorry you are not feeling well. Actually, I have had dizziness off and on since Monday, but mostly "on" so far today. I ironed 4 long sleeve blouses that had to be starched Monday. Yesterday I ironed 4 more of the same plus I pressed a pair of jeans. I am not going to do any housework today. I do not feel like trying to clean house while holding on to things while I am dizzy.

    Sister-in-law came with my brother this morning to bring my weekly groceries. She brought me two homegrown tomatoes and two ears of corn that came from a stand close to their house. My treats this week were some zucchini muffins she had just made. I didn't know they were going to bring the tomatoes and corn, so I was delighted and will have a tomato sandwich and an ear of corn for dinner tonight and possibly tomorrow night. She usually brings me treats of some kind. Sometimes it is a little chocolate.

    Someone else who irons! I've been getting the impression that many people just don't iron any more. Maybe they buy only clothes that are no-iron.

    Snakes definitely have the right idea. No ironing for them. They just shed their skins and slither on.

    I lost my iron about 50 years ago. Couldn’t find it anywhere! So, I trained my clothes to come out of the dryer looking ok or better. If they did not come out of the dryer looking ironed I gave them a second chance. If they failed that second chance....it was curtains!

    Nuthatch, thank you for your posts and pictures. I so enjoy them.

    Linda, thank you for the laugh. I think of you often. I went to “the last farm in the city” on Sunday by appointment. They had my small order of herbs and pak choy and a hanging cherry tomato ready. As you know, it’s been cold so the tomato is still in my bathroom under a skylight and over the tub. It smells great. The appointment system, with order and pay online, worked for me but they can’t be making money.

    There was a large plant label in the box with my first and last name on it. I put it in the middle of the garden.

    Back to ironing, I stopped sometime after I bought the house. Maybe 25 years ago. I try to buy things that don’t need much fussing - including ironing, dry cleaning or the dreaded “lay flat to dry.”

    I have read here everyday but I have been very tired. MS-y tired. As in, “I can’t even think about getting out of my pajamas” tired. Or even write a check. Last night I slept nine and a half hours and feel some better. I did get dressed, garden-ed and walked with Peter.

    Howie, how is the new antenna working?

    Good night, all,

    :) Ann I envy your green thumb. Every plant I have ever had has died. Years ago when my brother had his florist shop he made me 7 glass flower pots with plastic and silk plants. I hung them with macrame on the 7 beams in my Florida room. I still have them and have quit trying to keep any plant alive.

    Yeah Howie did your antenna arrive? Jeanie :)

    Jeanie, you are in a tricky climate to grow in. My brother eventually worked it out but now is dealing with new challenges in N. Carolina. That was a good gift from your brother.

    My antenna arrives tomorrow. I've been watching the box set I have of Sea Hunt. B&W, but I loved that show. I wanted to be an oceanographer when I was a kid.

    Oh, and the antenna I got didn't do a thing, so the one coming tomorrow has a 160 mile range. It had better work, or I'm getting cable.

    Ann I think of you often too. I have been trying to take charge oof how I am spending my mental and physical energy. I stopped looking at Facebook for the most part. I sort of felt that I was hitching a ride on other people’s lives. I am quite surprised that I do not miss it. Just a casual scan to make sure I do not miss a big family moment. I am satisfied and saving much time.
