Blooms Busting Out!

We had a good downpour of rain early last week, and so now the blooms are busting out all over! I hope to do a proper garden tour in August again, but I thought today I would just show you a few contrasts from what parts of the garden looked like in June and what […]


Sunday Supper Guests

I had Sunday supper guests this past Sunday. I don’t entertain very often as I’m focused on my work projects, but that doesn’t mean it never comes to mind. I think about it fairly often. I had planned to have people over for New Year’s Eve or New Year’s day and that didn’t happen, so […]


Happy Independence Day

I’m wishing a Happy Independence Day to all my American friends! In my heart I’m with you today, for I listen to BBNradio.org all day long at the computer, and it is celebrating with lots of godly and patriotic songs, and dramas. I think it is lovely that there is such a godly overtone to […]


What I See with my NEW Eye!

Okay, talking about what I see with my new eye may be rather melodramatic. I still have the same left eye, but the new lens put in there makes it feel like a new eye. Wow! Whites are dazzling white! Colours are so vivid! Everything about two feet from my face is quite sharply focused […]


Walking with Rita

We seem to be only managing one morning walk per week, instead of the two we wanted to do before we started. However, each time we learn a bit more about each other, and our friendship is growing. This morning, when Rita called ahead, she asked about marigold seeds. I’ve got lots, so I was […]


Transitioning into LEAP

I’m transitioning into LEAP 42.2. What that means is that I’m moving from my computer system of the last two years or so, into a new one that I’ve installed on the same hard drive. They are very similar, designed by the same people, but LEAP is much more advanced, so I have to do […]


Rita’s Advice Works!

Rita’s advice works! I asked her this morning, as we walked around a long block (for the first time at last), what to do about all the tent caterpillars crawling over everything in my backyard. I have to be careful to brush away the bugs before I grasp a garden spade or hoe, else I’ll […]


Making My Garden

I have been making my garden, or seeding it, this past holiday weekend. I got my prayer answered in that a teen came on Wednesday to go through the garden with a rototiller that he borrowed from his grandfather. Colton did a really good job and in record time. I was quite impressed with him. […]


Prepping the Garden

It is that time of year; time for prepping the garden and sowing my seeds.Last week I was trying to find a way to get someone to rototill my garden, or, in desperation, checking to see if I could buy one. Though I knew full well that I had no place to store a rototiller […]
