Tech Support

Our church has been doing services by Zoom. I’ve been helping out. I like to help, and I enjoy when I can explain something to someone and they get it.

This morning I was helping someone with their display settings. When a slide show is “shared”, it can take up a large part of the screen, so I was showing someone how to “slide” the divider over a little.

Also, my computer screen is really dusty.

It looks like this coming Sunday will be our last Zoom Sunday. There will most likely be in-person services on the 5th. We’ll do an internet broadcast of that service, but it will be on YouTube or Facebook.

    They are very fortunate to have you as part of the worship team! I can’t imagine the amount of work that goes into each one. Hooray for just one more week of it!

First Fruit

My cherry tomato plant is covered with fruits right now, but they’ve all been green. Until yesterday.

See it? It’s right in the middle of the picture.

One of the tomatoes ripened! Woo hoo! It had a black spot on it. Boo.

I cut the black part away, and tasted it anyway. The texture was a little off, but it was delicious. It tasted like a home-grown garden tomato. Mmm…

School’s Out

Yesterday was the last day of school. I met with the seventh graders first thing the morning for a math test. Then we did our last chapel of the year. I got teary. It’s been a weird couple of months.

Later in the morning, the kids came to drop off textbooks and clean their lockers.

It was fun to see them, but sort of anti-climactic. I like the craziness of the last day and all the good-byes. Some of the kids gave me cards or gifts. One kid wrote one of the nicest notes I’ve ever gotten. Another kid gave me a couple of homemade masks that her mom made. What a sign of the times! But I do really like them. I’ll definitely use them.

After school, I went home and ate too much. Ugh. Then I felt gross, so I went for a walk. The sun was setting. It was gorgeous!

So Long, Salt

I finished a salt container. I don’t remember if I’ve ever done this before. I mean, I don’t cook a LOT lot, so I don’t use a lot of salt at home. But I ran out.

I remember being excited when I found this container of salt, because it’s iodized sea salt – something that is still rare to see. And thanks to my memory archive, I know exactly when I bought this. It was December 15, 2015. So this salt container has lasted me four and a half years? That seems pretty good.

Troubled Plants

My cucumber plants are failing. They looked pretty healthy for a while, but then they got aphids. I sprayed them with soapy water. The aphids mostly died. Then I saw lady bug larvae! They eat aphids! Woo hoo! I stopped spraying.

But the cucumbers continue to look bad. The leaves are shriveling and dying . The stems look spindly too. I think it’s only a matter of time.
