It's so warm I even had to put on the AC!
I only wish I could feel better and get out and do some things ...yard work, I mean!
I hope I can manage that soon!... I need to plant new rose bushes!
(Or drop that ROSE part of my screen name here! :) )
Roses from last year!
I have been discouraged with my yard and gardens, as we have needed new gutters along the back and front of the house for a while now. The way our roof lines are, both the front and back, we get a torrent of rain flow and keep things in a real mess; especially with the new metal roof we had put on last year! It's impossible to have plants doing well for long!...Finally, Charles has agreed to have the gutters put up! They will be installed in a couple weeks!
Sunday, we have tentative plans to visit with the kids in Orlando. I hope we can.
I miss the way things were for us a few years ago-when our grandkids were still 'Kids' and we could all get together more often! It seems like the changes happened so quickly!
I realize life is made up of changes- but I don't like it that much!
THOSE were the days! This was probably about 8 years ago!
I think it was Brian's 14th. birthday!
My husband was just reading a classified ad...someone has some miniature cows for sale- Holsteins; a bull , 2 cows and a calf!
Charles was raised on a farm and has ideas of having
fresh milk- straight from his own cows!
I nixed that idea -pronto!
No way will I go that far back in time- to be tied to a cow that has to be milked daily!
He shut up about it- but it would not surprise me at all if he buys these cows!
:) He once bought a goat when we lived in an apartment! Of course we had to keep it tied in the yard! Don't ask why he did this because I never figured it out!
Our first Thanksgiving he bought a turkey right out of a farm yard- just for the experience of doing one up 'from scratch,' so to speak! A HUGE turkey, at that - 25 pounder! (for the 2 of us and my baby boy!) Neither of us ever having cooked a turkey- especially one that fresh!
As I recall that turkey was very tasty but looked like pure heck - served up on the platter!
For some reason Charles insisted we BOIL it first, in a big pot of water, and then bake it in the oven! So, it was all apart when served. Not at all like I imagined a Thanksgiving turkey should look!
LOL- since that time I have learned to do a turkey up right!
Oh, well, enough of my rambling for now!
Funny how your thoughts just flit here and there sometimes!
None of these things I've posted about today are connected...except they are part of my life...of what has gone into the making of this JunieRose person!
