I have green beans, cukes, yellow and green squash, onions, and LOTS of tomatoes. We have had so much rain that the garden has gotten so overgrown. Today, I was tying tomatoes to the outside of the cages because they had grown so much. I also cut a lot of the squash leaves off not knowing if it will mess up the plants. I sure hope not. The leaves were so big and growing into the tomatoes. I think I need more space or less plants. We had some...

Then while it was raining, the sun came out. I got up from the table and said, there has got to be a rainbow. I ran out the back door and looked towards where the rainbow should be and "there is was". I came back into the house and got my camera and went to the front of the house. I captured the rainbow along with a shadow of the American flag for a beautiful photo. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com...

The large one is 13" and the two medium ones are 10" each. They are made using clear glass plates and attaching material on the reverse side with mod-podge and then clear acrylic poly. They can't be put in the dishwasher, but you can put them in the sink and wash....not leaving to soak.

I was disappointed until yesterday. We got 6" of snow and I may go out and play in it. I have a dental appt this morning and will call to see if they are open. We also have bowling for our senior league. A lot of the bowlers are in their 70's and some in their 80's. The snow is crunchy and will not be safe for getting around.

Sunday night the power was out again for a few hours. This morning, we had power, but no internet. It was off when I got up and off for several hours. The power outages were a fire at a substation the first day and the second, they had to replace a part....that doesn't seem right to be off that long replacing a part, but I guess that is what it was.

When we got up this a.m., we had no power. Hubby turned on the generator to make us coffee.....okay, so this wasn't bad so far. Do you know how many times you go into a room or closet and flip the switch for light? I did that so many times and always laughed when the light didn't come on. We did have to use the generator to keep our 2 refrigerators and big freezer at a good temp. We ha...

Now that I have said that, I should believe it because we did the same last year. It has been a lot of work, but worth every bit of it....we will have enough to last through the winter. I really will be sorry when I can't just slice one and eat it though. I eat at least one whole one a day. Sometimes I have one for bkfst, lunch, and dinner. I LOVE fresh tomatoes.

Shortly after dinner, it started to rain pretty hard. The sun came out in about 15 minutes and I thought it had stopped raining. I looked out the window and it was still raining pretty hard. I know that when the sun shines and it is raining.......there is usually a rainbow........here is what I saw when I went to the front door. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/8/4/l849564476.jpg"> Wed, 24 Apr 2013 20:16:56 EST Great Grand Baby #2 AJ 4-23-13 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5334516 Here is a photo of my 2nd GREAT grand baby.
