I harvested figs, peaches, tomatoes, basil, lemons, and green onions from my garden.
I traded figs with a neighbor for two dozen eggs from his chickens. He had posted his request in a local gardening group and we lived within walking distance of one another. He sells his eggs for $7 a dozen!
I gave haircuts to my two youngest sons.
The weather continued with some cooler than usual days, and I kept the windows open longer in the mornings than usual and the air conditioning off a couple of days. This is unheard of here for June. My bill for this month is set to be less than last year, despite a 14% rate increase.
Also unheard of is the rain that we received. I was able to turn off the sprinklers and drip irrigation for 5 cycles. I also did not need to water my pots from the hose one time. I collected shower warm-up water and added a tablespoon of Epsom salt to the water each time and used it to water potted plants in the garden. Any water I can save is now a huge money saver with the new rates and fines.
I started some weight exercises in more earnest than I have in the past, using a set of 5-pound weights my mom gave me some time back and following some free online videos.
I read two books from the library via the Hoopla app. I can’t recommend either (they were fairly fluffy free entertainment). Sometimes, though, a little fluff is just the mood we need.
My son messaged me from work (he works at the grocery store) to tell me about some baked chicken on clearance. I bought 4 chickens (at $2.70 each) and checked out the clearance section of store while I was there, finding some other deals as well. The chicken gave us several meals and gave me more time to work in the garden.
