For two nights in a row I have slept soundly for over seven hours. That is a record for me of late. I am going to have to chalk it up to working outside so much whenever there is no rain. I really feel like going back to bed, but I have things to get done, as usual. So that is my recommended sleep aid. . . fresh air and sunshine. I hope you have some of both today. Pictured are lattice panels we put up last week for a little privacy. We have lawn chairs and a swing and some flowers on this side, so we can sit and enjoy some coffee and not be on full view to all the passers by.

In my opinion we have not really gotten hot here yet. Some people have been running a/c since the first of March.

@GardenGerty Almost nobody has A/C here, we only have a few hot weeks during one year. Of course everybody has an efficient heating system.

Working outside will make you sleep more it seems like because it is not something you have done in a while. The lattice panels are nice for a little privacy.

It's cool but very humid so far today. I live near the chive fields here and all I can smell is chives this morning. Love that.

I guess I have never thought of chive fields. Our chives have gone to seed. I think I may plant some.

@GardenGerty We have a huge farm that is strictly to sell all they grow, they grow chives all winter long outside. Never knew chives could grow in the winter.

It appears my camera has gone all blurry. Being outdoors is good for our health.

I envy your 7 hours. I am lucky to get 5 hours sleep.

That is more normal for me. And usually I get up two or three times in the night.

I love working outside whenever I feel strong enough. It sure helps with the sleep. Good idea for the lattice added for your privacy.

Glad you got in some good nights sleep. I can't sleep most nights straight through myself.
