Happy Easter





Before I really start this post, I want to acknowledge 9/11. I know that I will never forget!

We are having thunder and lightning, and thankfully rain. As you know I live in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and we’re in prime fire country. Keep your fingers crossed for us, as this weather is supposed to continue for a few days. Right now, I’m loving it! I love the smell of rain when I can have the windows opened!

I’m sorry that I’ve ignored my blog, but I’ve been so busy with other things… My granddaughters have been for a visit!

My vegetable garden is producing like mad. We’ve finally had tomatoes. The zucchini is overflowing my harvest basket. My knitting is flying off of the needles. The Halloween projects are moving ahead! The Autumn decorating has begun!

It’s just so busy…

So Lucky

This weekend we’re having two of our Grandson’s up for a sleep-over.It will be Alex’s first time. Keep your fingers crossed… We are going out to eat junk food and going to a movie, and if it isn’t storming to beat the band, we’re going to the park. It will be way too cold to go to the lake. In fact, every day when I go down to the lake for my walk it is totally empty. It feels like late Autumn, not June.

We’re supposed to have rain, but please hope for me that it’s not really stormy…

Fun, fun, fun…

Happy Mother’s Day

We were planning  to spend Mother’s day by ourselves working in the garden. We can only handle the very hard Spring work in small increments. I’ve decided that if we spend one hour a day each, we can accomplish the overwhelming clean up that we have this Spring after our very hard Winter.

After two days in a row of the “clean up”, I’m not so sure that today-day three is going to happen.

I may just be happy with my French-Toast…

I love my boys, and I wish that they were here! I hope that you each have a great day with those you love!

This is Miss Audrey Francis, during her career. She’s now retired, and a very cherished member of my family. We had very difficult news regarding her health, and she had very major surgery.  

Today, we finally had some good news. Great news!  

Don’t ask Audrey though, because she is wearing the “Cone of Shame”.Those of you who saw the movie UP will understand that phrase.  Not only is she wearing the “Cone Of Shame”, but she’s doing it while confined to her crate.  

Now that I have my mind back, my knitting has improved! I haven’t had to frog at all…
