They called for rain and I had a patch of strawberries that needed to be picked. My BIL was to come and pick them but I had told him it was to rain. I went out and checked how many where ripe and it was a mess so I went in ate breakfast and then made ready to work in the garden. BIL was to come but I had to start and pick them. I would get to an area and pick and weed so it took longer to pick but I had 2 jobs done. I picked 2 quarts and it started to rain. I came in and started to work on my Spark points. Then I went back out and picked 4 more quarts and wanted to finish the quart I had so I got a little wet s it started to rain again.

I ate some lunch and made a few calls and called my meds in but needed new orders. So I called the Dr and they are out till next week but I have enough till next month. Went back out and continued to pick and weed till I had 10 quarts. It was time to feed the dogs so I did that and while they ate I called my BIL's to come and get the strawberries. My BIL was working in his yard and didn't get to come and help.

When they where done I went back out to gather all the weeds up and put them in baskets and I have 2 of them. I wanted to quit but I still had to do the asparagus so I cut them and did not weed because my back was done.

I came in and took a shower and had to wash my hair again because I was sweating and I have to bowl and want it to look and smell nice. I had come out and my BIL was getting his strawberries and I wanted to talk to him. He bought a round about mower at an auction and I wanted to know if they had 52" to 56" decks on lawn mowers because Sears has some but at auctions you can get them cheaper. Problem was they had them but that was a special auction on farm equipment and only 1 time in May. So I have called my SIL that works at Sears and he is going to check on the mower and when they are going to have the next sale plus he will get his work's discount so I will save some money. That way it turns easier and it will take less time to do the yard. Don't need to spend the money but as I get older I have to make things easier for me.

I have really work hard the last 3 days but good news is I have lost 4 pounds. I am now at my 138 and will stay there and lower as the warm weather kicks in. I am getting my pool open this week so it will be ready for June weather. This week I do not have my DGD so I can get a lot done. Miss having her but it saves me gas, makeup and time.

If it rains tomorrow I will clean the house and get it in order. Then tomorrow night I bowl and I will drop by my BIL's and pay him for the belt he put on the lawnmower. I won't have to stay up late tonight to do Spark points like I do in the winter leagues since I will have all day to do it.

I would just love to find a nice gentleman to spend some fun time with. There has got to be 1 fellow there, to be just a friend.

On that note I will close and I did have my asparagus soup tonight. God bless you always with his kindness. Have a fun Tuesday and smile at people it may make their day.

Catch you tomorrow hope I bowl good.

Smile Joyce

    I remember when I was little and staying with my grandmother while Dad was at sea with the Navy. She had strawberries growing on the banks of the adjacent railroad tracks. We had wonderful strawberry shortcake and homemade strawberry ice cream. I'm sure yours will taste as good as those I recall. emoticon emoticon emoticon -- Lou
