I weeded the west side today. It is the hardest area. Grass grows in between the irises and it’s hard to pull it out with out pulling out the irises. There are three kinds of grass. Regular grass, zoisa grass, and crab grass. The cactuses are in that section, too. It’s not easy to weed around them without getting prickers.

A big limb came down after I weeded and went in to have my lunch. It knocked down part of my hedge. A big wind came up and a nice cool breeze came in the windows. I didn’t know the wind was that hard. The other night we had a storm. I slept through it. There were limbs down all over the yard. They were green limbs and I thought that odd. I usually get dead branches. I walked Danny down the street and a large pine tree had snapped about 20 feet up the trunk. The trunk was about 18 inches in diameter. The tree was at least 80 feet tall. Fortunately, it landed in the driveway and caused no damage. The branches had been cut off the bottom 60 feet so it must have been top heavy and the wind must have bent it so far that it snapped.

I sewed my winter coat so I can take it to the cleaners and then put it away for the summer. The lining had frayed. I also sewed a few other things while I had the machine out. I mended a pair of pants, a pair of shorts and several curtains that were my mothers. My brother can use them in his kitchen. I still have a couple more to sew along with some other items. I’ll finish up the sewing tomorrow and take the bins I have in the guest room out to the garage. I am slowly getting things accomplished.

I went to my Toastmasters meeting. It was an enjoyable evening with my friends. On the way home, I picked up my blueberries. Tomorrow morning I'll wash them and put most of them in the freezer. I spin them in my salad spinner and put them in the freezer. I have them all winter with my cereal. I eat some fresh with ice cream or on my cereal.

Dear Karol
I want to wish you a Happy 4th of July. The picture of the Lighthouse is beautiful. I am a lighthouse collector. I will have to take Ted's ocean off and put your lighthouse on my computer screen. You are getting a lot accomplished.

Your blog friend

Hi Doris,

I can't take credit for the photo of the lighthouse. I forgot to bring my camera so I downloaded the photo off their webpage. I have other photos of lighthouses. I'll have to look the up and do some lighthouse blogging. My mother-in-law has done some paintings of lighthouses and given them to me. I'll have to photograph them.
