Two years ago, I purchased a hammock for Marcus as a gift. I think he used it once the first summer and maybe once more last year. So I was surprised when he pulled it out this year and invited me to take a sway. I was more than happy to accommodate his request. Once we'd managed to climb on without incident, I closed my eyes and reveled in the sounds of nature, the cool breeze and my love beside me.
Hopefully we'll do it again soon.
Water: Watered mint, strawberries, tulips and peonies in backyard. Watered the urns in the front. Also picked up a moisture tester to help me decide if/when to water the plants. We'll see if it works (at the moment, I'm dubious).
I also put together a small water feature. It's a wide brown bowl, filled with glass rocks, water and topped with a solar-powered fountain. It's jerry-rigged as hell, but it cost me very little money, doesn't require a plumber to install and is easy to clean.
Weather: Low 51/High 76 degrees, partly cloudy, 26% humidity, 3 mph wind, 15% chance of rain. UV Index 8 of 10. Barometric pressure 30.24 falling. Moon phase: Waxing crescent.
