I’ve run out of gigabites on my internet stick for this month, and there is a lot of work to do in the garden and some other stuff, so I won’t be posting for a bit.

Let’s take a break. It’s summer (or would be if it stopped raining for ten consecutive minutes) so we might do well to smell the roses or go to the beach or something.

I’m making elderflower wine and cordial this week. And the weather is finally cool enough to get the rest of the little pavement area finished. Lots to do.

Here’s some advice:

O Lord, my heart is not lifted up;
my eyes are not raised too high;

I do not occupy myself with things
too great and too marvelous for me.

But I have calmed and quieted my soul,
like a weaned child with its mother;
like a weaned child is my soul within me.

O Israel, hope in the Lord
from this time forth and forevermore.
