The characters really grew on me and I thought last season’s finale was the series finale.

3 June 2019 (Monday): I spent part of last Saturday at Lakewold Gardens, but had to leave early as they’d booked a private event (wedding) at 4 pm. I spent the two previous weekends with my mom in Longview. She had a scare with a pimple or blister on the same eye treated for melanoma. Fortunately, it is allergies (perhaps due to reduced immunity after treatment). I got some household chores done on Sunday and have been reading physical books and listening to music more. I had to purge my DirecTV DVR as the storage was full, so I also watched BULL and BLUE BLOODS. This round of plants, mainly succulents, is doing well and I now have three varieties of dwarf hosta.

Then we had rounds 2-4. We were release from work at JBLM early on Friday, 8 Feb. I got and early start and outran the snow to visit Mom in Longview. We didn’t see much snow there, but I left about 6 pm on Sunday in hopes of getting back for the predicted heavy overnight snowfall around Puget Sound and north. Only “mission essential” personnel reported to JBLM on Monday and Tuesday of this week. We had over a foot of snow at our house and my sister had considerable more in Everett.
