Saturday Scribles

Amazing, summer continues here in the south. We have had plenty of rain up until last week. It seems to have gone to other places now. The cotton and corn in the fields looks wonderful and is thriving. Temperatures are in the high 80s most days but the humidity makes it seem hotter.

From his garden we have been enjoying tomatoes, okra, and cucumbers. I didn't plant flowers this year as I wasn't feeling well. We've been getting some nice melons from the market. We pickled beets and canned vegetable soup.

I've not done any work in the studio in months due to my health but now that I am feeling well again, I'm itching to lose myself in a project. I bought the batting and backing for Holly Cottage and need to finish that one.

School starts this Wednesday. It seems like a short time ago, that they got out for the summer. The Princess will be a senior this year. She is working a couple of jobs but still enjoying time at the pool since she and Mom moved into their apartment complex. She will only attend school for 3 hours every day then go to work. Wonder Boy will return to uni August 11. I've only communicated with him via text and not seen him much. He has had an intern job this summer at one of the government contractors here in town and is still living in the house. I'm hoping to have lunch with him one Saturday before he leaves for school.

I am still not fully recovered. They diagnosed a fungal lung infection after I had the Bronchoscopy and I'll be taking medication for that for four months. The last lab work I had showed that the medicine is affecting my liver function. We're just hoping it doesn't become too much of a problem before treatment is finished in September. I have my asthma under control at the moment which is wonderful and I am finally able to exercise again. I've been walking on the treadmill. It is too hot to walk out doors.
That is an update on life here with the bears. I'd like to get back to blogging but I'm not making any promises.
