Pretty pathetic looking, eh? Our neighbor is reporting the same sorry state in his garden.
But thankfully some of our garden is flourishing with all this rain. My hydrangea is looking as good as it has since I planted it.
Our green beans are also thriving.
We had the third of three swim meets in three days last night. Once again, I had to wear jeans and a hoodie ... who knew that in July I'd be wearing jeans and a sweatshirt to a swim meet? The Ts did well ... T#1 swam well, going head to head against a swimmer who's always "had his number" ... T#1 was determined in the 200 IM to take that race, and he did, coming from behind in the last lap to go ahead. It was exciting. T#2 swam up in two events - not in the next age group up, but all the way to the 15-18 y.o. And held her own, finishing second in the 100 Breast! And T#3 won all of his events. Woo hoo! Can you tell that I'm one proud Nana?
We stopped at Five Guys for dinner (it was on the way and I'll confess that I'd been having a hankering for a cheeseburger) and allowed a little too much time. No problem for Nana and Papa who are "old pros" at this swim meet business ... DH read the book he brought along, and I worked on my EPP bow ties.
I got my glasses Wednesday, but there's a problem with the location of the progressive bifocal and with a special anti-glare coating, designed to cut glare from electronic devices (computers, iPads, etc.) and to reduce risk of macular degeneration (which is a bit of concern because both maternal grandparents and both maternal aunts suffered from it). Unfortunately the glare from any light source creates a purplish tint to the lenses (thus no photo of me modeling my new glasses). This morning they remeasured for the bifocal and will be getting new lenses cut. It should take a week to ten days ... hopefully they'll be here before we set off on our Blue Ridge Parkway road trip.
So far, it looks like we've got a quiet weekend coming up, but something tells me that it won't end up that way. DD has finals coming up for two of her classes, so I suspect I'll be getting some T time so she can have some study time. A win-win situation, for sure.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!
