This is the day I had planned to be in New York City. The trip was cancelled.
If the trip had taken place, I would be on a bus with my friend Don at this time headed to New York City, instead of writing this blog about the trip that wasn't.
I had decided last week I didn't want to go on this trip. Did I really want to go to a big city in the oppressive heat and humidity of mid-summer? No, not really. I'm having a hard enough time not getting soaked with sweat every time I go out to change the bird baths here.
Earlier this year I planned to get out more. In May Bill and I took a week off and traveled through the south, visiting his hometown in Georgia and my brother in South Carolina. On the way back home we drove up through the mountains of western North Carolina to visit my father's birthplace and my paternal ancestral roots. I have yet to write any blog postings about that very interesting trip. I took hundreds of pictures and many videos. Lots to share.
This spring I made trips to the Balitmore Aquarium, the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. and the Philadelphia Flower Show in Philadelphia. I enjoyed all these trips but I think it's time to spend more time at home.
The picture at the top of this blog I took this morning out of my bedroom window. I have a lovely backyard. In fact I have a terrific backyard.
This is where I'm spending the rest of the year, right in my own backyard.
