There is a small army of tree trimmers cutting around the power line that runs through our property.  I hear at least three chain saws buzzing behind my house.  They are making a mess too.

I havent had boiled eggs in a while. I guess I'll make some tonight.

Morning, everyone!

Morning Shep, Nebi and Pav.  I made boiled eggs for macaroni salad.  I boil them in the water that then cooks the pasta.  It is always a guessing game.

Congratulations!  That is just awesome.  I think the trend in swimwear for men is definitely a take off of board shorts..  They are loose, have a tie at the waist and generally are longish... A while back the swimming trunks men wore for surfing were actually called  "baggies".   Sometimes men will wear speedos which are tight fitting elastic and small, but that is more or less for competition.  And if they want to show off an especially fine physique.  :)

Good luck, I hope you enjoy it.  One thing I recall as a child when learning to swim, was learning to tread water, and to float.  That way you feel comfortable being in the water while you are learning more advanced techniques.

Cold and wet here, no tennis.  *sighs*  I am continuing the great Christmas decoration purge.

Yes, as soon as the purple flowers fade in color, you need to cut them off. If not you'll be releasing thousands of seeds everywhere.

This could be fun!

annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd  MY SWISS CHARD SPROUTED!!!  I planted the seeds on Memorial Day.... Last year I had swiss chard up into November....

annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd I got pumpkin  plantlings... for Jack o Lanterns,  but I like pumpkins of any sort.  The nursery lady said they would be happy growing with the zucchini and acorn squash.. I am concerned I might end up with mixes... like the dreaded pumpkini

I just did a morning walk through. The 2 zucchini plants that took some frost damage 2 weeks ago have made a complete recovery and are thriving. They are trying to catch up to the other 2 plants.

Seeds are sprouting! So exciting. I just love going out to check every day to see if any new seeds have popped through. All of the lettuces have poked up and forming tiny little leaves. The basil seeds that I planted between the tomatoes have popped up. The parsley has not yet made it through, anxiously waiting for them.

Out front I'm thrilled to report that the zinnias have popped through and so has the malva. No sign of the 2 kinds of cosmos, coneflowers or black-eyed susans. No sign of the daisies or dianthis either.

I also got some bulbs cheap, some asiatic lilies (dark red), freesia and hardy glads. The hardy glads are only hardy to 0 degrees so if we have another bitter winter they won't make it, but I only paid $1.50 each for 2 pkgs of them so no big deal. The freesias are only hardy to 40 degrees so no hope of them making it through the winter. The lilies should be fine. They go to -40. I look forward to all of the bulbs poking out of the ground too.

I had several volunteer watermelon plants come up and kept them. It'll be fun to see if they amount to anything.

The chives are thick with purple flowers. They're so beautiful. I'll have to keep an eye on them so I can cut them back before the seeds form and start to disperse.

Mine too!  I planted them from seed maybe two summers ago,,, and the first season I thought they were a total failure.  Now I have a really chivey corner of the bed!  They tried to grow in the gravel walkway, I suppose because of the seeds..

Welll now what Neb?

Now it is time to digest dinner and contemplate taking our dog for a R   I   D   E. We can't say it out loud because she understands..

This will entail stopping for I C  E     C  R   E  A   M  another  term she understands completely..

 

* whispers*  I bought an HDTV antenna at the rummage sale... I can't wait to try it out in secret... out in my cabin.    Seems to me it requires some kind of signal which probably doesn't exist here,, but I mean, it was only  $2.00  :)

annnnnnnnnnnnnnd I scored a rummage sale win with a $1.00 blender.  I have been looking for one to make my own paper our of confetti from my document shredder.

In other news, I've decided I need a golf cart to toodle around the neighborhood. But they're expensive. And now I am sad. That's the end of my golf cart dream. It was short-lived.

It's never too late, technically.  But I feel pretty trapped.  Financially, I can't start at the bottom in a new career or go back to school.  Practically, I have almost no time to myself in which to practice a new skill.  Anything I do will have to start out as supplemental income, and I realistically won't be able to go that until Tess is a few years older and more self-sufficient in terms of entertaining herself.  So I don't think I'm doomed or anything, but I am frustrated.

But those are just challenges.  They don't have anything to do with your confidence in your abilities.  

Pavvy is smart/able and confident... her writing just oozes it whether she admits it or not.

I want to be a motorcycle mechanic.  :/  Until that happens I am just plain old retired.

The return flight times are changed... We will be in Calgary Friday 6/19 and all day Saturday... Our actual tour departs on Sunday morning!  :)   Just moping around with nothing to do..

I repeat, we will be just idly sitting around in the fancy schmancy hotel near some kind of tower thing... where you go up high and looksee.  There could be blue drinks available... you never know...

Dear Doctor,

I drove 20 miles to your office in a hurry so I could be there in time and you wanna schedule me?

Boo!

Was that for your finger? Does it need stitches?

No. Yearly check up this time. My finger is OK. No stitches but they need to be taped together and light work for 4-6 months!

Ouch.  :(

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
