I am heartsick about all that happened in our country this past week. The death of George Floyd was unconscionable, and the response to that death seems only right and just (except for the part where, from what I’ve read, police and right wing groups are fanning the flames). I’m planning to do a post about it later this week. For now, I offer the fluffy distraction of a jillion crochet squares, weird food, and puppers.

Dr. M dressed for success (ful grocery shopping)…
Monday, May 25th
In honor of Memorial Day, another weird breakfast – oatmeal, mango, blueberries, and cilantro. It was the cilantro that made it weird. Maybe I don’t like blueberries & cilantro?
The first of four squares I finished this week (well one was finished last week, but I had to block it & it wasn’t dry until Tuesday).
We collaborated on dinner – I made the Mexican street corn, and Dr. M made the pulled chicken & veggies. It was GOOD ya’ll!

Afternoon snack at work. I posted on Instagram that I thought my charcuterie board was missing something. Ha!
Last week’s square, finally dry.
Wednesday, May 27th
Lunchtime progress – I worked on it for about 20 minutes.
Thursday, May 28th
As Dr. M said, the age of the peony is past & the age of the day lily has begun!
Friday, May 29th
Dueling salads – Dr. M’s carrot-centric one, and the one I ate at work.
Saturday, May 30th
Our “science experiments.” The petunias just keep coming back – along with some other stuff. I think it just makes them interesting looking.
Miss Rita & Ms. Pinky are doing quite well these days! Ms. Pinky has about a bazillion buds just waiting to pop.
Two more squares – finished the one on the right (the one I was working on on Wednesday), and then started another one right away. It went really fast!
Along with racial upheaval, the COVID cases in our area just keep going up. I went to the mall to walk on Thursday, and it was full of people – customers & sales clerks – who weren’t wearing masks. It just makes me sad and angry. I guess that’s the State of the Bug right now – sad and angry. How about you?
