I finally uploaded garden photos taken two weeks before.
I began to win the war on weeds.
I designed a new front staircase.
I had more time to plan and cook for a lavish retirement party to celebrate my husband's retiring from government service.The grand antipasto was a big hit with his co-workers.
I baked homemade muffins from fresh-picked fruit for my son (who is in town for his dad’s retirement festivities).
I finished knitting a gift for a friend.
I spent time watching my backyard wildlife.
And I read a lot about the Amalfi Coast and Campania region of Italy, where I am heading in early July.
Perhaps, I’ve discovered the riddle of modern life. Can a person be too busy communicating to actually do things worthy of communicating about?
