After a wonderful time with the ’rents, we are home from our trip to Virginia. All is well in the house of O’Neil. And I’m on vacation from work the rest of the week so I’m looking to enjoy the beautiful weather with my family, while finding time to write and shop. (Mommy needs a new pair of strappy sandals!)
I was surprised to find my local gas station up to $4.09 (gas was $3.83 in the Tidewater area on Wednesday). Last week, the price was $3.95. Tomatoes are now off the grocery shelves, and corn is just not worth buying when everything else is so expensive.
But I was thrilled to see that our vegetable garden is thriving. With any luck, we’ll have a few homegrown items on our dinner table at the end of the month.
I’m just rambling here. It’s a beautiful day so I hope to take advantage of the time and resist the urge to sleep the day away. And, of course, there will be poetry.
