Today is a beautiful day to plant a garden

The wind has been just breezes today, and the sun is shining and it’s in the high 70’s. Perfect day to work outside and finally get my vegetable seeds in the ground. I think I have too many seeds for the amount of space so flower seeds went into pots.If even half of the seeds produce I’ll have a magnificent garden right here in my small space. People in the park stop by and say, “you are making a garden?” in wonder because most RV parks are for people coming and going,not stopping and staying. this park has 20 spaces of which half like it here and plan to stay a long time, as I do, otherwise it would not make sense to start a garden.

seeds are in the ground!

I have a friend needing some serious medical care, she doesn’t have insurance so she won’t see a MD. I’mg going to try to help with my needles, so far we see a small improvement today will be her 3 treatment, then we’ll skip 2-3 days and do another series of 3 treatments, I haven’t given her much encouragement because I feel she needs to see an MD, what a situation to be in, not old enough to get Medicare, spouse of retired Marine without any benefits for her. Her legs are so swollen I’m not sure where to find correct placement of needles, but we are trying to do what we can, she is very cooperative and hopefull.the first day I saw her I felt she needed to be in a hospital but she says that will not happen.

Did I tell you I got a new beautiful leather reclining chair for my studio? The people that live here are so fine! The chair was extra for this neighbor because of some reason and they had half of the two love seat and so they gave it to me. Now I have a comfortable place where I (and others but not Charley) can sit and keep my feet up I could probably sleep here!

I made some more face masks today, I’ll just keep making them because I think we’ll need them for a long time and after the first flush of help tires we will still need them so I still have some fabric so I’ll keep making them, I feel like it hasn’t really arrived here close to where I live, we can not let down our defenses too early.

Haven’t taken a bath in my soaking tub yet but I cleaned it out and refilled it and soon I will jump in, I figure I can use it 3 times or so and then water my garden with the water.

I bought this Primo water dispenser, well first I bought the container for the water but when I brought it home and set it in my studio I wondered why this bottle didn’t have a spout, only a carrying handle. I’m such a dummy, the bottle goes with the whole water system not to be used apart very easily. So I went back and bought the rest of the program. A little pricey for me but now I have hot and cold water in my studio. I thought it would be a good thing for me to have because I sit here for hours without drinking water and with my sensitive system I need to drink more water and am a lazy old lady not going to get a drink when I know I should.

So, am I drinking more water yet?

I think I have been complacent with this corona virus because I only personally know of 2 cases and they are in Panama. I just read another friends description of how difficult life is in Panama with people going hungry and the government is enforcing some strict rules of when you can get groceries with severe consequences if you don’t follow the rules. I hope my family there is safe and have what they need, food, water, medications and stay well during this most difficult time we are living.

So while I can plant a garden, learn new things and not suffer any consequences in my small world I know people are suffering everywhere, everywhere and we can only hope our leaders and we are doing what needs to be done to lessen the impact and get over this disaster soon.
