--I wish the air would clear up outside. It still smells of smoke from the Dismal Swamp fire in Virginia - BUT - it's not too hot outside! Only about 87 ... I see there are some tropical developments that might come our way. As long as the ... Read more

I eat way too fast! Any ideas how to slow down?

Wednesday, August 10, 2011      8 comments

--Okay, so I have always eaten fast since I can remember. When I was young my sister would eat everything up if I didn't eat quickly. I can remember leaving my pudding in the refrigerator to eat later and it would mysteriously disappear. Then... Read more

--I put it off long enough. I need to can some tomatoes--the little that there is since we have been under severe drought. You can't water enough to keep this sandy soil from drying up in the upper-90-degree temperatures we's been having. --My... Read more

My Cat is wasting away before my eyes...

Wednesday, July 20, 2011      3 comments

I am not in a very good mood today. My 16-year-old cat still refuses to eat. It's been about two months since he's been able to eat well. He started grinding his teeth when he ate and since then doesn't eat much. At first I started force-... Read more

Ugh....last night we discovered the fan assembly on our heat pump is busted and the fan no longer turns while the unit runs. So...we placed a house fan on top of the unit and a high velocity fan at the side but to save the unit I have the temp ... Read more

Anyone know a good rain dance?

I feel sorry for the people with too much rain and floods. I wish there was some way they could send it here! I feel sorry for the farmers in this area. I saw corn that was only about 2 feet high (if that) and already tassled. Between the d... Read more

Well, I finally decided what plants I want to grow this year and mapped them out as to where I can grow them. I hope that they'll grow where I placed them! I'm a little behind ordering my seeds and I hope I can still get the varieties I want! ... Read more
