MY RUBBER TREE, MY GARDEN AND MY GOALS

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/9
/3/l939716942.jpg"> THIS MY RUBBER TREE OR JADE PLANT IT SHED ALL IT'S LEAVES. I THOUGHT IT WAS DYING BUT IT IS PUTTING OUT NEW SHOOTS EVERYWHERE BUT IT IS NAKED LOOKING. MAYBE TOO MUCH COFFEE. emoticon THIS WHAT LOOKED LIKE BEFORE WITH ALL IT'S LEAVES. THE AFGHAN VIOLET DIDN'T SHED BOTH GET COFFEE. ANY IDEAS WHAT HAPPENED ??????????

BEEN PUTTING OUT MY VEGGIE GARDEN. I STARTED SATURDAY AFTERNOON. I GOT 3 ROWS OF CORN OUT AFTER HUBBY SPENT THE DAY GETTING IT NICE AND LEVEL AND LIKE SAND FOR ME TO PUT IT OUT. IT WAS LATE AND I WORE OUT. SUNDAY AFTER CHURCH I STARTED AGAIN I GOT MOST ALL THE SEEDS OUT. I PLANTED GREEN BEANS. DRY BEANS. PEAS. REGULAR AND SUGAR SNAP I KNOW I AM LATE GETTING THEM OUT. I WAS WORE OUT. SLEPT LATE MONDAY SO GOT A LATE START. I PUT OUT A TOW OF GREEN BEANS AT THE FIRST ROW NEXT TO HOUSE HOPING RABBITS WILL LEAVE THEM ALONE. I GOT FOUR HILLS OF WATERMELON PLANTED . I USED PLANTS WHICH I BOUGHT AND ALSO STARTED SOME NEVER PLANTED WATERMELON PLANTS BEFORE. I PUT A FEW SEEDS IN EACH HILL ALSO. I FOUND THE DATE I PLANTED SEEDS LAST YEAR JUNE 14TH SO I AM AHEAD OF THE GAME THIS YEAR. WE HAD LOTS OF WATERMELON UNTIL KILLING FROST YUMMY AND SWEET.
TODAY DAUGHTER CAME UP FOR DAD TO HELP HER WITH HER BOAT . SO I COOKED A BIG MEAL FOR US. I ONLY GOT 7 TOMATO PLANTS OUT TODAY. I DID GET MOST OF THEM MULCHED AND WATERED. STILL GOT CUCUMBERS , ZUCHNIN SQUASH, OKRA, CANTALOUPE, EGGPLANT, PEPPERS,AND MAYBE PUMPKIN. MAKES ME TIRED THINKING ABOUT. AT 67 THIS YEAR IT SEEMS LIKE IT IS TAKING ME A LONG TIME TO PLANT GARDEN BUT I LOVE IT.

MY GOALS. I STARTED 10 WEEKS AGO AT 193 LBS NOW 189 NOT REALLY WHERE I WANTED TO BE. BUT I WANTED TO BE BELOW 190 AND I HAVE REACHED THAT . I WANT TO GET WHERE I NEVER SEE 190 AGAIN. I WANTED TO GET MORE EXERCISE AND I AM DOING THAT. I WANT 10,00 STEPS A DAY NOT THERE EVERYDAY. I AM EATING BETTER. I DON'T MINDLESSLY EAT LIKE I USED TO. I WILL COMPLETE THIS CHAPTER IN MY LIFE. I HAVE ACCOMPLISH GETTING OFF 2 MEDS AND REDUCING MY DIABETIC MEDS A LOT. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS KAY

    I don't have any idea - I've heard of "watering" with coffee, but since I don't drink it, I've never tried it. Looking it up, though, it does mention that over-water can make the leaves turn yellow or brown and fall off. It also mentions that it needs a lot less water during its dormant season.

    Beautiful pictures. I live in upstate New york and where I dwell the trees came out early too. Our Lilacs came out early in April. They usually do not come out until May and interestingly, the lilacs are still in bloom.

    I LOVE THIS TIME OF THE YEAR. I LOVE DIGGING IN THE DIRT. BUT MAY 15 HAS BEEN OUR LAST AVERAGE FROST DATE. BUT NOW IT IS DIFFERENT EVERY YEAR. IF YOU PUT OUT TENDER PLANT LIKE TOMATO PLANTS YOU HAVE TO REALLY TO BABY THEM. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    It is strange weather but it is not caused by humans it has to do with the sun because it is happening on other planets too.

    So far the Pacific NW hasn't gotten the message that spring is here. We have been having periodic snow still, but warmer weather IS predicted.

    Hi Kay!
Wow, it looks like spring in your part of the states! How beautiful! I've got roses blooming in the ground, containers and trellises. My onions are nice and big and my new tomato plant hasn't died yet or gotten ripped out and eaten by the dogs. I love spring. Now I just have to find those little oval cherry tomatoes I saved for their seeds at the end of the season last year to replant for more yummy tomatoes.

I hope all your fruit trees bear big, gorgeous,yummy fruit!!!

    Yes, we have to be Christ to others! Love your background!! Today was the reading about Lazarus. Die-ing to sin and being reborn in the Holy Spirit!

In our Community, we have a Christian Council. Every lent the Christian houses of worship get together to praise God every week @ noon for 1/2 hr. It is so good to sit with the others,hear God's word and give our views. I learned so much from the Ministers of the other congregations.

How Good is God!!

    I know that throughout my life I have had to remind myself to be patient. Now that I have a little doggy named Patience, that is another reminder to me. I am better than I used to be, but there is still room for improvement!

MARCH 22 2012 WHAT IS HAPPENING ???????

Thursday, March 22, 2012

WHETHER YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN ARE NOT YOU HAVE TO ADMIT SOMETHING HAS CHANGED IN OUR WORLD . FOR THE GOOD OR THE BAD? I DON'T HAVE THAT ANSWER. BUT LOOK AROUND YOU THINGS ARE CHANGING !!!!!!!!! HUSBAND JUST SAID HE NEEDED ME DUTIES CALL. I AM GOING BACK TO CHURCH TO HELP WITH DIASTER RELIEF FOR TORNADO VICTIMS. THIS TIME WE ARE FEEDING VOLUNTEERS SO THEY CAN DO THEIR JOBS AND NOT WORRY ABOUT GETTING SOMETHING TO EAT.

I DO HAVE A LITTLE ANSWER FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS. IF I HADN'T GONE BACK TO MY CHILDHOOD CHURCH I WOULDN'T HAVE A PLACE TO HELP PEOPLE IN THIS TORNADO RELIF EFFORT. IF I WASN'T RETIRED, IF I DIDN'T HAVE A LOVING HUSBAND THAT SUPPORTED ME IN MY EFFORTS TO HELP . FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS. GOD WILL TAKE OF ME AND MINE AS I SEEK HIS FACE. FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS. I WILL BE OKAY.

HAVE A BLESSED DAY SPARKFRIENDS LOOK FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS IN YOUR LIFE. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Yes, when we are following Jesus, we will be OK. The world is doing its thing, but God is most definitely doing His will and we help by staying in His will.

    Praying for those in your area. My county was hit too, 20 minutes south of my hometown. It's awesome that you are able to volunteer and also that your church is reaching out to the hurting. I love living in Southern Indiana because of the love that is shown to our neighbors. Our church is gathering gift cards that will be given to the families, so they can shop for basics and whatnot. All my best. emoticon
