Sunday, June 26, 2022
Say hello to a quiet Sunday. Well... maybe. I have to work an 8-hour shift today. Business might not be too slow early in the day, then, there might be a mini rush when the after-Church crowd arrives, but later this afternoon it will be slow. I'm getting paid for 8 hours whether the store is busy or not.
Yesterday the temps around here peaked at 91 (F). This is not the first time we've been in the 90s, though this is the first time since summer has officially arrived. Compared to many other parts of the country, that's not too hot. Being aware of this, I played a little game with customers by saying "I understand it's hot outside." To hear their responses, you would think the temps were so high the heat was practically sucking the breath from their lungs. So, I added that it was much hotter in Texas and their eyes would glaze as dumbness reigned. When did so many people turn into non-thinking sheep?
I did freeze several bags of peaches yesterday. I even went so far as to cut out all the little, itsy-bitsy worms. I get enough protein in my diet; I don't need anymore.
More of my dahlias are getting ready to bloom. I have at least 3 (possibly 4) more plants in this little garden, with marigolds sprinkled among them. Color is simply great!
