Dear Diary from the path least traveled…

Hello Diary,

Thought I’d pop in briefly and share some thoughts before getting on with the day… got a heat wave coming so spent last week preparing for that, have a few minor projects today and tomorrow but for the most part will be listening to relaxing music and searching for rainbows on the path least traveled… 🙂 not much rain forecasted with the heat wave so watered the veggie garden (being in pots and bins, will not be over watering and wasting water).. Green beans, zucchini, cucumbers etc are doing fine..

GB, zucchini and cuc

Had to cage them to keep the squirrels and rabbits out, don’t use chemicals… the rat tail radish is doing quite well also, does well in heat unlike the regular radish..

Already pulled the onions so will start growing them indoors rather than in the heat… walked by the water gardens and it was coming into its own (also had a few tadpoles)…

So managed to get outside work done, ready for the heat wave… 🙂 while moving about, heard the distinct sound of a little house wren (slightly bigger than a humming bird).. So I stopped briefly and looked about and saw the little bird setting on a telephone line…

Decided to take a break and wait around for awhile and see what the little bird will do next…appears it has decided to set up housekeeping in one of my weather instruments…. 🙂


No harm to the bird or instrument but not sure how well it will like being woke up in the mornings when I check the instruments.. 🙂 and speaking of dealing with the heat, came up with a idea combining learning Spanish with working a puzzle…

Can relax, stay cool and learn Spanish while working the puzzle in the evenings… 🙂 also prepared all my evening meals..


Those which I will eat right away in the fridge, the rest in the freezer (meals prepared till Friday of next week.. 🙂 ), when I am ready just pop them in the microwave, no need to cook in the heat… 🙂

While getting ready to upload this blog, I briefly checked the news, here and around the world and with great sadness I may add.. all the conflicts, anger and hate in the world and America, most (if not all) fueled by two things, religion and guns (kind of like giving a drunk the keys to the car).. one can only dream of how wonderful this world could be without religion and guns… what they need are rainbows like here on the path least traveled.. 🙂

Well, Diary, I have taken enough of your time and I need to venture on down the path and smell the flowers and search for rainbows..but I shall return one day, share some memories and thoughts, Fate be willin’ and the creeks don’t rise..

Will leave some rainbow thoughts..

“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.” Maya Angelou

“Walk on a rainbow trail; walk on a trail of song, and all about you will be beauty. There is a way out of every dark mist, over a rainbow trail. “ Robert Motherwell

“If I traveled to the end of the rainbow as Dame Fortune did intend, Murphy would be there to tell me the pot’s at the other end.” Ed Koch

“Diversity has been written into the DNA of American life; any institution that lacks a rainbow array has come to seem diminished, if not diseased.” Joe Klein

And some thoughts from Kermit and Louis Armstrong…
