I have never been a gardener.

Hello, dear readers, and welcome to a mid-summer letters column. We hope you’re enjoying the extra daylight, playing things safe with your leisure activities and taking extra care as the delta variant of the coronavirus makes its unwelcome presence known.

DEAR HARRIETTE: My sister has been studying abroad this semester. She’ll be turning 21 soon. For months I’ve been planning to visit her in Europe for her birthday. I’ve already paid for my ticket and planned an elaborate weekend of birthday festivities for her. We’ve been arguing a little bit lately, and the other night she said something particularly hurtful to me.

DEAR ABBY: Six months into the pandemic I was furloughed, then laid off a few months later. Because of the loss of income, I could no longer afford my rent and was forced to move. It was tough finding anything affordable in the area. A good friend from college (“Josie”) and her husband own a big home with a detached guest house, and offered me the opportunity to rent for next to nothing until I found a new job. I was super happy about it because we are very close friends from college.
