Here Comes The Rain Again – The Eurythmics.

It must have rained heavily here at some point every day for at least the last two weeks. I hope my tomatoes survive. The watermelon loves it. I don’t know what I’m going to do with all those watermelons and two people! On the bright side, everything around us is extremely green for July/August.

The past week was mostly work and picking peppers (see last week’s post). But yesterday we came out for the weekend to our future retirement house in Bryson City. We’ve named our property Rock’s Rest. The reason is “Where do the rock rest? On da moss.” Our last name is DeMoss.

Here’s the view I woke up to this morning:

Can’t wait til retirement in 2024, when I can wake up to that every day.

I’m getting ready for church, followed by a potluck. Keep me in your thoughts and prayers so that I can somewhat stick to my diet! Have you ever been to a church potluck in the South? Absolutely delicious. I’m at 17 pounds lost right now since May 31st.

EDIT: I made it through the potluck ok without going over my carbs and calories, so I call that a win!

BOOK HAUL

This week I picked up two books:

In audiobook format, this is a science fiction/dystopian mashup.

New Hampshire, 1796. “My name is Ona Judge,and I escaped from the household of the President of the United States. I was the favored maid of George and Martha Washington, but they deemed me a slave and thought me property, and I hear ten dollars is offered as reward for my capture. Now I must write the truth that I have lived, and tell my story…”

THE ABOVE IS ALL THE DESCRIPTION I NEEDED. Can’t wait to read it.

TRAVELS

Just a quick two-and-a-half-hour drive to Bryson City this weekend. However, Harold, our wire-haired dachshund, was not happy about it because he does not like to ride in the car. Here’s Harold recovering after we arrived. He has never gotten sick or anything. He just hates travel.

Have a great week, everyone!
