Better watch out, there is something going around and it is very contagious. I won’t say where or who I got it from but I am trying not to give it to anyone else. I hope I haven’t. You know what it is don’t you. It’s the blog blues. It’s when you have lots to write about but for some reason you just can’t sit down and write. I think in the pre-blog days it was called writers block. I actually blame mine on the weather. It has been so nice lately that I just want to be outside. The bad part is that I have so much to write about that I feel I should at least write a little.
Last week was the start of the Spoleto festival here in Charleston. The market was packed with people on Saturday. I didn’t know it but during Spoleto, the Farmers Market says open later than usual. They had bands, jump castles, more vendors than usual, jugglers, people on stilts, and magicians. There was a small brass quartet playing right behind us and I wanted to ask them if they could play the Umpa Lumpa song from Willy Wonka but my son said that would embarrass him so I didn’t. I bet they could though. As luck would have it though, I forgot my camera so there are no pictures. The good news is that Spoleto will be going on for another three weeks so I do have time to get some photos.
Our plants are doing great. I have so many day lilies blooming now you wouldn’t believe it. Again I haven’t taken any photos but I will do that soon. We have been spending a lot of time organizing, weeding and repotting our plants. Pretty soon, we will have it all in order though and I will have more time to blog. We have had a few nice surprises too in our garden. We had some blue thistles bloom. At least I think that is what they are. Someone gave them to us and they started blooming this year. When we called to ask what they were, the person that gave them to us said she didn’t know. We also have this kind of purple flower that we think is a ginger. If I get a chance this evening, I will take some pictures of each and maybe give a prize to anyone who can correctly identify them.
I finished Psalms. Yea me!!! I am now reading Proverbs. I don’t believe I have ever read them before. I do like it though, very much. It speaks a lot about wisdom. There are a lot of great words of wisdom in Proverbs and a lot of great rules to live by. Do you know what the beginning of wisdom is? I bet some of you know the answer to that.
Have a wonderful and Blessed day,
