It has been raining off and on all day.Dreary and dark.
My eating stinks. Bill and I both had a yucky day yesterday. He woke up too dizzy to try to drive so he took day off and rested. He is back in tip top shape today.
Ground turkey meat loaf is in oven and will put veggies in to roast shortly.
Here are a few pics I took before it started raining. My coneflowers have never been so bad but had one good one today. I didn't even notice the bug til I put it on computer. If you have facebook you have already seen these.

  Hi Eleni........
So glad to hear that Bill feels better today. I had a bad night last night. It was my own fault!!!!! I had fresh apples on Sunday night, roasted sweetpotatoes on Monday night, and sweetcorn on Tuesday night. Any one of those can turn my intestinal tract inside out and I had all 3 in a row with NO break!!!!! I WAS SICK!!!!!

Your flowers look great.........so healthy. Our heat and humidity are coming back tomorrow and staying for the weekend!! Yuuuccckkk!!!

Take care........

Today has been a stay in bed most of day. I got up very early as Bill got up sick.Very dizzy. Did not go to work. But he is fine now. He is rarely sick. I think maybe it was just maybe low sugar. He is at deli now getting us supper.
I haven't even been in back room so I will just share some pics from facebook.

First one is my grandson Christopher.A very good pic of him.he was suppose to start school yesterday but schools were all messed up,They sent them to 2 schools and he wasn't registered at either.He was very upset So it looks like they got it straightened out but he is in a new school.

Now a variety that I saw and enjoyed for some reason.







Hope I gave you a smile.
Oh I have a bunch of new books. I have all of Chief Inspector Gamache books by Louise Penny except one and it should be here any day. And one of the new Richard Castle book.Have one more of them coming. So I have plenty of reading to do. I am trying to decide whether to reread 1st one of Gamache as it has been awhile. I just started #3. maybe I will read them both at same time.

  Hi Eleni.........
I hope that both you and Bill are feeling better real soon.

I am tired today too. I did way too much yesterday because I knew that my Mom's friends were coming here by 10 AM to see my gardens. I admit that it is a good motivator, but I also pushed way too hard and my knees and back are screaming at me today. Then after they left around noon, we had to hurry in order to meet friends for lunch at a town about 9 miles away. When we got home around 2:30, I didn't have any ambition left to do much more than Spark, so here I am.

I hope you have a good evening.

  Hi Eleni.........
The color of the blooms on Big Momma is so beautiful. I know I have said this before, but I have never seen such healthy plants!!!!!
I spent the entire afternoon working in another section of my gardens. Our weather is so beautiful that I don't want to waste a day inside. We were so trapped by the heat and humidity of July, that I want to be out in this perfect weather as much as possible. I also have a couple (friends of my Mom) coming over at 10AM to see the gardens. I told Mom that I don't have all of them cleaned up yet, but she said that they wouldn't care, so I hope they like them. I know they will like the Cleome. Most of them are close to 6' tall and in full bloom.
The picture of Abigail walking away is precious!!!
Take care......

Sunday-Fav Pics From Facebook

Sunday, August 19, 2012

Haven't done a lot today.I did get groceries in fridge taken care of. bagged veggies and froze meat.
Bill gets groceries whenever I don't feel like going.And so if he doesn't get everything right I ignore it.No matter how much I go over list some small thing turns out wrong. But he outdid himself yesterday. The week before I found some small containers of parmigiano-reggiano. Well!!!! He gets home and asked me if I knew how expensive it was. Cheese is always expensive but it floored me when he said it cost alost $15. Wowser. He got a wedge about the size of a small piece of cheesecake. I also used fresh herbs for first time. I wanted to make a Rachael Ray prosciutto wrapped chicken stuffed with herb ricotta. I have never had luck with her recipes. Bill liked it better than me. I have no plans to make it again.
But I learned you can freeze fresh herbs and also the cheese. The basil and thyme came in little tiny pots so I think I can transfer them to a bigger pot and they will grow.
Now I have an even bigger Bill story. He will kill me for telling so I won't tell him. He went out this morning to mail some mail and return a disc to the redbox machine.He went to post office first. Yep He put redbook disc in post office drop. emoticon I thought it was funny but he didn't.
OK here are some pics from facebook.Those of you on face book have seen them but I thought some were just cute.
First dogs




Cats


And I would love to have this very cool cake.The Electric lady finds so many cool pictures

    Ohhhh too cute these are! And oh boy...BILL...that IS a story I wouldn't want others to know about! Hopefully the post office people will dig it out and get it back to Redbox...fingers crossed for luck!

I LOVE those pictures..I never seem to get on Facebook, that's the hubs terrain. He tells me when one of Josh's friends seems down in the dumps and then I swope in and try to comfort them.

They are all moving on in their world. One of Josh's good buddy's just became a new dad. It was pretty awesome that he named his son after Josh's middle name Gavin. We went to Bonefish Grille Saturday night with the gang as I was hostess and got to pick the restaurant. We gave him a card and a gift card for the new little man.

Things are SO expensive for these young families these days we are always trying to help out a little here and there as we can. It makes me so happy to help spread some "Josh love" to his friends! emoticon

In case your ears are burning it's because I was writing about you in an earlier comment on one of our mutual friends page. I saw your comment right below mine and had to tell her how great you are and how happy I was that I had the chance to meet you in person. emoticon AND...it's ALL true..yes sir re! emoticon

  Hi Eleni............
I pretty much took Saturday off as far as getting any work done around here. We took our DIL and our 2 grand-daughters and a couple who have been friends of ours since we were married 44 years ago, out on the pontoon for the afternoon and then our friends took us out for supper. It was a beautiful afternoon weather-wise and we really enjoyed being together. My friend never had children of her own and really enjoyed holding Nola and playing with Elizabeth.
Today I have been doing loads of wash and also vacuumed and dusted. I have company coming for supper at 5:30, so I had better close for now.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday. Loved your pictures........Abigail looks so tiny.
