I want to thank you all for the kindness you have shown me over the past several weeks. Your comments have been uplifting and oh so kind. I have met some wonderful people here in the blog world and I am thankful for you all. One is never sure how the news of cancer will be received and although I know that I am not responsible for how the news is received, I still don’t want to offend anyone or scare anyone. I am blessed to have such great readers who encourage me and lift me up to God in prayer. Thank you all. I have good days and bad days but so far the good days out last the bad days. I am learning that some days I press on and some days I lay back.
OK- Weekend Review.
Well, our weekend started out WET as we had the remnants of tropical storm Andrea which rained on us all day Friday into Saturday. Then the sun came out and it was beautiful!!
Local shops have the plants that grow best in our area, the owners also have the knowledge of how best to care for them.
After some housework we headed out to get some plants for the garden and flowerpots. The local shops are the best and we have a beautiful one here in our little town. We picked out some tomatoes and sweet peppers for the vegetable garden and some yellow and tangerine Portulaca's for the front of the house.

After putting on a more-than-generous amount of bug spray to keep all of them away, we headed out to tackle the areas that we wanted. My flowerboxes were easy to clean out and plant but I didn’t get enough so we went back on Sunday to get more flowers.
Hubby tackled the veggie garden. We didn’t have a garden last year and it was badly neglected so he spent a lot time cleaning up and digging it up. The plan was to get them in the ground on Sunday, but you know what happens to plans right? Right, we didn't get the veggies in the ground. We have tomatoes, sweet bell peppers to still put in the garrden and we have strawberries already in there. Do we want lettuce, cukes, or what..... we scanned the garden books we had and decided on nothing yet. We will keep thinking about what else to add to the veggie garden. I did get the rest of the Portulaca's into the ground.
Also on Sunday after worship, we got to meet our newest grandniece, Evelyn Ivy. She came up from Texas with her parents to visit the New England Family up here and we got to join in. She is so cute and just such a happy baby!! What fun to sit around, eat, enjoy good company and hold a sleeping baby. Boy does she sleep well too! The best part of course is when the baby is fussy, back she goes to mommy! She, of course was not fussy at all.
Walking around the yard, most of our plants are not in bloom yet. The season got off to a late start with all the rain and cold temps and we have more rain coming tomorrow night into Tuesday. But still, it's green and pretty around here.
I love those weekends when stuff gets down, laughs are everywhere and the sun shines. How was your weekend?
