At A Loss For Words

Rarely am I at a loss for words.  I always have something to say. Just ask anyone who knows me. They'll tell you that I talk a lot, or that I'm quite opinionated about things. Those things sound rather negative, don't they? Well...whatever. I still have much to say about what I think.  However, lately I've been rather 'dry' of anything to write about.

I like to keep my blog 'positive'.  I've been called a "Polly-Anna", "Sunshine" and a number of other things that reflect on my 'UP attitude'.  My thinking is that there's enough stuff in this life that we're living that can be disheartening. I don't need to add to it.  But, that being said, just because I don't have anything to write about doesn't mean I'm in a 'down' frame of mind.  I'm not, at all. I'm just at a loss for words!

I guess I could tell you that our garden seems to be flourishing.  The zucchini plants are getting large. The corn is up enough that you can tell what it is. The peppers are looking good, and the tomatoes have blossoms.

I've already told you that the birds have vacated the nest on the porch light. Now I'd like to see that muddy little cradle removed from the light shade.  I could let you know the exciting fact that Mike has sprayed weed killer on the patio, where all those dreaded, hardy green weeds have come up between the bricks.  I could tell you that I'm still planning the flower garden around the patio, and how it's still in the planning because I have to wait for the old iron fence to be cleaned up, painted, and constructed.  That will take some time. But it is on my honey-do list.

There are lots of things I could   tell you.  But somehow, I feel at a loss for anything to say about much of anything these days.  Hopefully I'll find something to write about soon, or the few who follow my blog will be far fewer!   Does anyone out there want to throw a subject or two at me? Make it a challenge....I'll see what I can do with it!  I always was pretty good about meeting a writing assignment.
