This is my daily entry in Jami's Project whereby she wants to create a collection of journal entries from people of different ages, from different countries and different parts of this country, during this 30 day Coronavirus period. She wants to highlight how "in this together" we all are, regardless of government policies, and the influence it will have on our wellbeing and to evaluate what individuals do to cope. She has participants from Alaska, Canary Island, France, Canada and Norway.
We managed to sort ourselves out last night for our on-line House Party birthday get together. The younger and more tech savvy members of the family finally got us all connected. Except for Bernie in Brazil, he was sleeping, as you do in the middle of the night. House Party was OK but not great, Leone is going to party test drive Zoom on Saturday night so we'll see if that is better.
Today the weather has been glorious. This morning there wasn't a cloud in the sky although there are a few clouds rolling in now. I do feel sympathy for those who are locked in where they can't see the sky. I am so fortunate with the views I have from here on the hill.
A warm summer like we've just had usually means a good crop of feijoas, this year is no exception. Although, on my tree, a lot seem to be dropping before they are ripe which isn't usual. I put that down to the summer drought. The grass under the tree is littered with the fruit. I think I'll give them one more day before starting the daily harvest. I don't like the taste of them but my grand-daughters simply love them. They don't bother cutting them in two and eating the flesh with a spoon like most people do, just bite into them and suck out the flesh. It's a shame they can't come and pick them up. I'll stew them and give them a treat when all this is over.
