Of course, it’s been a whirlwind since July 3rd. Still up to our ears in unpacking but we, like most of the USA, can’t really go anywhere (we don’t want to until that virus is contained). So, no hard push to completely rush the unpacking.
Our days have begun with leisurely breakfasts followed by watering all the plants and trees. We have added an apricot tree, various veggies and fruit plants. My long awaited avocado tree arrived a day after my wonderful city friend Aida brought by 2 avocado starter plants that came from her own tree. It may surprise you that avocado trees do really well in San Francisco? The parking lot my husband used had an enormous avocado tree- fully fruit bearing, in .the middle of the mission district. Sad that the lot was sold. Now there are condos where the tree was.
After tending the garden, I head to my art studio. Still unpacking, sorting and figuring out what to keep close by and what to store away.
Around 3pm, the art studio gets really warm and a little dark. I call it ‘a day’ and head outside.
I don’t really relax completely. I am very busy getting the beads, crystals and prisms cleaned and sorted for the next project… It’s taking a lot of hours so far…
Outdoors, I get the music going and work on the beads. As soon as I feel hot, I go for a swim. I love this. Such a contrast to the beginning of the pandemic as we were just waiting around in the almost empty house. If it weren’t for my daily romp with the herd of deer, I might’ve lost my mind.
Thanks for checking out my blog! I have more things to tell you , so come back soon.
