I ended up watering my plants on the patio three times yesterday. Each time many of them were bone dry. That’s what you can run into with containers on a hot cement patio.
My cucumber plant looks pretty bad. I don’t think it’s going to produce any more cucumbers. And the first two went bad before I even picked them.
Yesterday my daughter and Andrew and I went to the KFC in Jenks where they have a daily buffet. I sometimes get hungry for their fried okra, which is much like what I ate as a kid.
Andrew ate chicken strips, grated cheese and peaches. He doesn’t like any of the drinks so asks for water. He doesn’t seem to like carbonated beverages, which is great.
He wanted to go to the neighborhood pool where they live, so they didn’t come in afterwards; just dropped me off.
I settled in and watched a few episodes of “Ozark.”
This morning I was thinking about all the different houses I’ve lived in at various points in my life.
The biggest house was about 3000 square feet. I remember going through the rooms marveling at all the space. But that was another time and place. Another chapter in my life.
I’m truly satisfied with the space I have. It’s all I need. All I want to clean. Dust is going to gather no matter how much room you have.
I don’t live in a fancy place. If you saw the front you’d probably think this complex is a bit rundown, and it is.
It’s what you see once you’re in the door and through the patio doors that is special to me. I don’t really give a tinker’s damn about the front. Well, I probably would do more out there if they took better care of it. But it is what it is and I don’t live out front.
I watched a few more episodes of “Bloodline” on Netflix last night. The last scene I saw was Kyle Chandler (John) sitting on the beach with Danny lying face down in the water.
If you’ve watched this series, you know that Danny is the oldest child of the clan and very troubled. You can trace the veins back in time to figure out why.
Families are complicated. Who knows why some people go through trauma and come out unscathed. While others are tormented all of their lives.
Danny has deep, deep resentment of the family everyone admires and looks up to because he knows what lurks underneath. He was the recipient of his father’s wrath his whole life and he is angry with everyone in the family who ignored his plight.
That seethed and kept a light ablaze in him all of his life.
What a fascinating series this is.
I’ll be taking Charlie to see the animal acupuncturist this afternoon. I’ll let you know tomorrow how it goes.
