Remember the tomato plants that I thought the frost hit and killed? They have big leaves on them! I can't believe it!!! Now there are ten fairly good sized tomato plants in my raised bed, three teeny cabbage plants (which haven't died but certainly haven't grown so I don't know what to think about that), … Continue reading I haven’t killed it all yet!

Thank you, Joyce!
My mother in law, Billie, left me a voicemail yesterday that her neighbor and good friend, Joyce, had two big hosts she wanted out of her yard. Joyce told Billie I could have them if I got them yesterday so once it cooled down last night, I went to Joyce's and dug them up. They … Continue reading Thank you, Joyce!
Somebody’s watchin’ meeee…
I was ready to throw in the towel on my old fridge this morning. I knocked something out and was trying to put the drawer back in, and I was ready to scream. I gave up and took a shower and tried again after I got out. I fought with one drawer for at least … Continue reading Somebody’s watchin’ meeee…
I love this life!
Wouldn't change it for all the money in the world!
Mother’s Day with my kids
I actually got all four of my kids in one place, and we celebrated Mother's Day last week on Wednesday last week! With the older two out of the house and the older three working, it's hard to coordinate schedules and get them all in the same place at the same time. They figured it … Continue reading Mother’s Day with my kids
Setting up the rest of the corral
Ted did it! The corral pieces he ordered finally came in after four weeks of waiting, so we headed to Hillsboro on Saturday morning to pick them up. It was a straight over and straight back trip. Then it was time to set them up. It was a little harder than we thought it … Continue reading Setting up the rest of the corral
Spring band concert
Sunday afternoon was the last band concert of Sahara's junior year of high school. It's hard to believe that my girl is going to be a senior after Friday. It's even harder to believe that a year from now we'll see her graduating high school. I am so not ready for this!
I am NOT happy about the lack of mileage my little smartcar is getting right now! I can't figure out what's going on with it. It was getting around 40mpg, but last time and this time, the mileage was just HORRIBLE! The only thing I can think of is that someone is stealing gas from … Continue reading Smartcar mileage
Gardening with Gramma Izzie
Gramma had me help her with her plants earlier this week. That woman can grow anything (just like my Mom!). I, unfortunately, did not inherit this gene. Here's hoping one of the kids did. Gramma has a big strawberry pot full of "hens and chicks", and there are tons of little "chicks" growing out from … Continue reading Gardening with Gramma Izzie
I hate frost!
😡 The tomatoes are toast. I have to plant new ones. All five died!
