In the late afternoon, light shines through my kitchen blinds and curtains. My coffee bar is adjacent to the window.
I like to watch as the shadows are chased away and stripes of sunlight begin to filter through the window. After an hour or so the whole window is lit up until it glows.
They have ordered new blinds for me, but they won’t come in until the end of the month. The wand broke off the ones you see now.
My Little Plants Need More Light:
This light coming from this window, the only kitchen window, is all the natural light that my little Trader Joe plants have. I turn on the kitchen lamps, but it just isn’t enough.
I wonder if I could find a plant growing light and somehow rig it up to give them more of the light they need?
At night after I watch a little TV, I go back to the bedroom to read.
Gracie usually comes out of whatever hidey-hole she has been in and jumps up on the bed. She will curl up next to my right shoulder and go to sleep.
This is something Ivy doesn’t do. When she wants to be petted, she will come to me. Sometimes she will dose at the end of my chair.
But she doesn’t seem to want to be on the bed.
Instead, she begins her mournful cry with that silly curtain tie in her mouth. I’ll keep calling to her: “Ivy, come in here with me.”
But she won’t. She just continues to meow in that strange way around the curtain tie.
What I’m Watching On TV:
I’ve been watching “Jack Ryan” on Prime Video. I didn’t know if I’d like such an action-packed series, but I find I’m enjoying it.
It reminds me a bit of “Homeland.”
The book that the series is based on was written by Tom Clancy.
Up-and-coming CIA analyst Jack Ryan is thrust into a dangerous field assignment as he uncovers a pattern in terrorist communication that launches him into the center of a dangerous gambit.
Ryan stumbles upon a suspicious series of bank transfers. His search for answers pulls him from the safety of his desk job and catapults him into a deadly game of cat and mouse throughout Europe and the Middle East.
He’s fairly sure there is a rising terrorist figurehead preparing for a massive attack against the US and her allies.
I’m not usually drawn to these kinds of shows, but I like this one.
Spring Is Almost Here:
Normally this time of year I am itching to get outside and plant in my containers. This year I am a little reluctant to get started.
I just don’t know how much I can do with the walking boot on. Or how to arrange my containers when my yard is up another level from the patio.
It’s both hard and awkward for me to walk up that level with the boot on. And it is difficult for me to walk around these uneven surfaces.
I have been flipping through my gardening magazines, but I haven’t seen any kind of answer to this dilemma.
Plus there is an irrigation system hooked up to provide water and I doubt they’re going to let me dig anywhere around them.
Any ideas or suggestions are appreciated.
