Good Morning everyone,
Our day is sort of gray this morning. I just read the weather forecast and snow is predicted for tonight. I hope that doesn't freeze out the plants in my planters. I have planted twice now. I don't have to worry about weeds in the planters though. I like the idea of not having to hoe rows and rows of garden like we did when we had a quarter of an acre in garden. I did enjoy the produce then, but it certainly was a lot of work. My end of the work was not so much the planting and hoeing, but I did a lot of picking and even more preservation of the produce.
I did learn a lot during those years. My husband at the time believed in organic gardening. He was reared on a truck farm during the depression. He always maintained that chemical fertilizers would negatively influence the soil and the produce from that soil. His theories are now proving correct. He doesn't grow a garden anymore. I do wish he'd grow another steer for us. I miss that clean meat.
I think I told you that Gidget panicked yesterday and ran off. I got her back and now she is sticking to me like plaster. I am so very grateful she is safe and back with me. I don't have anything planned for the day. Tomorrow is my TOPS day but a friend called and asked if I would take him to his doctor's appointment. Their vehicle is shot and they have no other transportation. He has cancer and has already lost one leg. The other is likely to be taken fairly soon. He was a thalidomide baby and the damage that drug did is a lifetime of misery.
After we do his doctor's appointment we will go to the Habitat for Humanity store and see if we can find a new washing machine for them. Theirs has just died. I am glad that is one problem I don't have anymore. We only had a washing machine for a few months then our water killed that machine. You can see why I don't drink our tap water. Instead we take our empty water bottles to a local church and fill them there.
Does anyone know if any of the members on our list lived in the areas that were hit by the tornadoes? I hope not. That situation is tragic. I lived in Michigan when Flint was hit by a devastating tornado. I was babysitting that afternoon and we were sitting outside on the porch. The clouds were beautiful that day, but she refused to look at them. I heard just a couple of hours later that Flint had been hit. Tornadoes are such a tragedy.
Enough for now. See you all later.
