EARTHQUAKE

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

We were very near the center. Our house shook pretty bad. Our son and lots of people that we know have had things fall off the wall, drywall cracked, bricks moved on my cousin's house. WE ARE OK.

    Thank God you're okay. When I first heard about the earthquake, my first thoughts were of you and Carla. I've been praying for everyone affected by it. Take care!

Hugs,

    Nancy, I'm so glad you are OK! (((Hugs))) I've been on the phone a lot this afternoon with my Dad. Mom is in pain today, hurting to much to be on the phone. They are OK, but Dad said he doesn't want to ever go through that again! I'm so glad to get online and find that you are safe too.

    I'm glad you are okay, Nancy! You are much closer to the center of it than we are here in Southern Maryland. But I did feel it and it was so scary. I live in a mobile home and I thought it was going to fall down! But thank God there was no damage around here. It was just very scary and I hope to not have to go through that again anytime soon...or ever!

Mountain View From Our Deck

Monday, August 22, 2011

We just finished having dinner and while sitting in the sunroom we can see the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in the Shenandoah Valley. After dinner, Hubby went out onto the deck and took these pictures so we could share this beautiful sight with my Spark People friends. I hope you enjoy the pictures and will relax a little when you see them.

A Great Weekend

Sunday, August 21, 2011

Carla (PINKNFITCARLA) my daughter came for the weekend. She came to help us move Mom's furniture into her apartment. She worked her butt off and I am sure she burned a lot of calories. She moved things from the truck to apartment and we unpacked a couple of boxes yesterday. This morning, we went back and unpacked some more boxes as Hubby put legs on tables and put things together. Carla had the bathroom all set up so fast that I couldn't believe it. We got the bed all made and then we put a few more things away. She was such a huge help to us and I thank her so much. I am just a happy camper today. Carla was here this weekend (as I said previously) and she set up my IPOD for me. I know nothing about setting up any of that stuff. I now have my email, FB, Words with friends and Road Runner on it. It will track everything about my walking. She also put SP walking music on it for me to walk to. I just hope I can remember how to use all of those things she did for me. I LOVE YOU CARLA. Thank you so much. Mom

Heavy Tomatoes

Monday, August 08, 2011

This is what I picked from the garden today. The largest one weighed in at l lb 9 oz and the 2nd largest weighed in at 1 lb 4 oz. You can't tell how large they really are. They are monsters. The biggest tomato is in the "spread-out" hand of our cabinet maker. The tomatoes in the front of the largest ones are really nice sized tomatoes, but it doesn't show how large they are.

    What a blessing. Not one of my tomato plants produced this year. With the drought everything else is gone. I'm suppose to plant in less than a month but hubby said we probably won't because of the lack of rain.

Mr. Tomato Face all grown up

Monday, August 08, 2011

This is a before and after of Mr. Tomato Face. The first pcture he was just a tot and now he is all grown up. He is a yellow brandywine tomato. He probably won't be around long, so thought I would show you how he grew into such a nice young man.

Here is his photo when a tot:



Here is is all grown up: He weighed in at 1 lb 4 oz.
