Mustard greens are coming in

Northeast Ohio

I think I’ve slept through summer because it is cold and rainy here. The temperatures are in the low 40s and highs mostly in the 60s with an occasional 70 plus. I’m still waiting for 80s.

How was your week? Red and I have both been busy mowing grass, using the weed eater and doing some garden work. We hoed and fertilized tomatoes today and did the bean patch yesterday. I’ve been picking mustard greens to eat and put some in freezer.

I’ve never in all my 82 years saw mustard like we have this year. It was supposed to have been curly mustard, but the package says nine varieties. I must say, it’s really good.

We worked all week cleaning out our bedroom, and our ex-grandson-in-law is going to paint for us, but his mother died recently and he said he’d get to it when he could.

We went to Little Edna Church, and it was an odd Sunday, with not too many out. I guess lots were on vacation.

This weekend is Pleasant View Church time in Litchfield. I don’t know if we’ll make it or not, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Bill and Redia just left and they are both well. I talked to Georgia recently, and they are well, also. I talked to Jettie, and she said that she and Chester are doing OK.

Buford called, and he and Johnell were in Georgetown on their way home to Alabama. They had visited Jeanie and Sarah Belle and both are doing much better. I had called both of them and both sounded really good.

I want to say hello to Bernice Grubbs. I had written her but never met her, and I liked her right away. She and my sister, Anna Lea, were friends already.

I’ve got a few June birthday greetings to send to the following: Georgia (Hall) Sergent in Lorain, on the June 6; Larry Adams (son of Red’s niece, Carleta Engle Adams) in Whitesburg, on June 9; grandson of Carleta Adams, Timothy Matthew Sturgill in Eolia, on June 17; Anna Lea’s granddaughter, Hillary Brashear in McRoberts, on June 20; great-grandson Christopher Raymond McAtee in Lorain, on June 28; one of my little friends from Kingsport, Tenn., Abby, will be eight on June 21; and Jean Hunsucker’s granddaughter, Vanessa Ann (Shortt) Welch in New York, on June 25.

Vanessa and her husband, Bill, will celebrate an anniversary on June 26.

Dannie and Betty Wells Means will celebrate an anniversary on June 13, and I do believe this will be 42 years for them. James and Janice Jordan had an anniversary on May 28. I think I sent them a card but I’m pretty sure I forgot to send a letter I had written. I just found it with my papers a short while ago. I’m thinking I must have been having one of those senior moments.

To all who celebrate birthdays and anniversaries in June, may your day be a most special one and wishing you many more.

I don’t know when schools are out in Kentucky, but the ones around here ended this week. So when you are out and about be sure to keep an eye out for the little ones; they are our most precious possessions.

Jean just called Red, and she sounded good. She said she had been to the Oven Fork Senior Citizens Center.

I’m gonna stop, as I’m making too many mistakes. It’s a good thing I have someone to edit this before she sends it on its way. Thanks, Catharine.

I hope everyone has a happy and fun week, love and prayers to all.
