Well, had to login for some reason!  Strange things going on around here. Been down to get my new glasses, so far doing okay. They are "progressives" so maybe I won't be looking for them all the time, when I get used to nodding my head up & down. I finally got someone to listen & put NO correction in the bottom, I see 2020 for reading & always have, so a little magnification makes a blur for me. Will have to get another pair because these don't have a tint & can't put the clip on over these frames. Always something, right?

Tomato update! The big plant is still in place hugging the pole. The pole has stubs of branches so seems to let the plant lean without rubbing. Got a problem, Amy, maybe you can 'splain things so I will understand....... I bought this big tomato plant because it already had blooms on it, weeks ago. I carefully transplanted into the trug without disturbing roots, same day my daughter & I planted the 4 packs of salad fixins. I have been eating salads for a week but still not one single tomato showing up on any of the plants. Why aren't they growing tomatoes? The Early Girls are blooming their little hearts out, still no tomatoes showing up and now the Big Boys are blooming. What am I doing wrong????

Radar showing the storms have moved past us but I hear thunder & see wicked clouds. The trees are starting to shake so must be something coming at us. Oh, I brought home a hamburger, fries, Pepsi & the dish of ice cream called a "mudslide"... yummy. Must go eat.

Gloria, about time you checked in!!!!  :thumbup:


YAYYY So nice to see you Gloria! I am happy to read you are getting about and you are being well looked after by family and Yvette.

Shirley, you are not doing anything wrong...maybe there are no bees doing their job. You may have to help out and I know you must have an artist brush somewhere :))

Here is something for you to read.


Beans, carrots, beets cucumbers and strawberry plants are now in..........and so am I !!
Will cut up the potatoes for planting tonight and get them in the ground tomorrow.

The racoon is gone and the best scenario is that it is still safe and cannot get into our attic anymore.  A couple weeks ago, we had a handyman fix the vented part below the roof with new & tougher screen and metal screws.  He said he did not see any critter.  After hearing the noise right above our heads - we knew and thought it was a new critter.  It is hard to imagine but there was a racoon making screeching noises. 

Youngest son came over with a trap (even though it is illegal to use them here) and when he opened the top of an area in the garage - the emaciated and thirsty racoon jumped out and ran away.  It can't go far enough.  It is a wonder the racoon is still alive and I hope it learned a lesson.  In other words, the first pest control person sealed the area where the racoon was hiding.  It still is free and no one from Raccoons Matter {Just kidding) is going to protest in front of our home.  It only cost us close to $300 to get this matter taken care of and ended up being solved by our youngest son. 

Gloria:  Welcome home!

Rhubarb!  I will check out who might have rhubarb. 

Jenny:  Prayers for Michele.  She has gone through war!


Good morning! So nice to hear from you, Gloria! Thanks for posting.

We don't have raccoons here, I've only seen them in the lower 48, but we do have carpenter ants which is a concern if you have untreated wood. We have badgers, weasels, and wolverines that can get into and make a mess of cabins or food storage, but those are not in the city.

The biggest issue here is bears, especially in the spring or fall. They're found in the suburbs and smaller towns. I saw a video last summer of a mother bear in an unlocked and open garage, literally rip the locked top off of a large chest freezer. Unfortunately, they had to shoot both mom and the three cubs because relocating wasn't working, and no place would take the cubs.

We have grizzly, black, and brown bears locally, so leaving out birdseed, dog food, or unsecured garbage is illegal in the summertime. And relocation is very hit or miss with bears.


We hit the deck running at 5 a.m. this morning and my muscles have given up and my eyes have entered slamshut.  My shoestrings came in hours ago.  I'm going to bed as soon as I finish typing. 

Christy made the front of my house look so good that I decided the back needed some attention so I spent a couple of hours cleaning and hosing down the concrete and the sidewalks in the back.  I think I need to hire someone to clean it really well.  It looks a lot better but it needs something!

I wish you all a peaceful night's sleep and a happy Spring day tomorrow.  And may God bless us, every one!

Today was a GORGEOUS day!
