See you in August! Time for a Techo-Cleanse.

Hi Kids!

We are now officially in the new house! I’m so excited it’s just ridiculous.  I spent 2 hours mowing the lawn, and another two pruning trees and cutting away branches to make room for some berry bushes.  We’re having the most amazing, hot and sunny weather (it’s been averaging 34° for the past three days, hotter tomorrow) and I just can’t manage to stay inside and get things done.

For Guppy this is heaven on earth.  Just before bed I found her on the balcony just gazing at the back garden.  I asked her what she was doing, and she responded wistfully, “I’m just checking to see if everything is still ok out there.”  She also asked me if our garden would be closed on Sundays, like the municipal park we used to go to play.

I am not happy about coming in to unpack more boxes. No, sir.  I know I won’t be planting anything until most everything is unpacked, or at least until a decent path through said boxes can be created.  If it were up to me (which it’s not) I would be doing everything I could possibly do in the garden and unpack on rainy days. We’re bound to have some rain, right?

Because of Internet carrier issues, phone line changes, and other random and annoying things I’ll be off the grid until August.  I’m thinking a 30-day fast from the net might actually be a good thing.  I believe we’ll be calling this a “techno cleanse”.  Sounds so much sexier than simply not having Internet!  My figs will be ripe in two weeks (Gasp! Flutter! Scream!) and I promise to snap up some pictures of that action.

So until then my friends, have a wonderful July, and I’ll see you in August!

  1. Enjoy your time off! You’re right, a techno-cleanse once in a while is a good thing. ;) And I’ve gotta join the chorus and say what an adorable comment Guppy made! So great that she (and you both) get to enjoy a beautiful garden in this new place. :) Look forward to your (refreshed, rejuvenated) return! :D

  2. Congrats on your new home. How wonderful when a child loves a yard and garden so much, that just means you are doing a great job raising her up to appreciate nature.

    I love your techno cleanse that you are going to do I actually think that’s a great thing to do.
    Enjoy your month off and enjoy your time in your new home!

  3. I could feel my heart melt when I read what Guppy said. <3
    Sweetheart, enjoy dancing in your garden as much as you want, Sundays included!
    I should have gone to France with Eric, but instead of staying with him while he teaches and performs in Picardie, I would have gone down to help you unpack, my dear! I hope you'll soon have the rainy days your unpacking and your garden may need, and then you have all the sunny days you can take! I'm looking forward to reading your next update on the other side of your techno cleanse. :)
