I can't believe that I have not posted
since last Thanksgiving.
Our household was so upset at that time
that I guess I should not be surprised.
Our Joan was in the hospital and very ill.
She's well on the road to recovery now and
we are so grateful
I spent most of the winter just
resting up for spring! Mom's got
some great "upside down" pictures of me.
Our deck has been cleaned and mom has
planted an "herb" garden.
This consists of two large planters filled
- This is a brand new pot and it sure is
- pretty. She put it on a stand so I would stay
- out of it. It has chives, basil, parsley
- and oregano planted in it.

They are really growing fast! Mom says that
she will start cutting and freezing some
of them pretty soon so that we can have
them all winter in our soup.
This is the pot of basil only.
It has four different kinds in it.
The one closest to the front is
This is the one that I like to eat. I only do it when she is not looking (lol)
I got caught with a leaf in my mouth.
She just laughed!
She also planted some lovely flowers,
She has petunias, begonias, vinca vines and
lots of other stuff on the deck.
It sure does look pretty.
We have our morning coffee and most
of the time our lunch on the deck.
So far this spring and summer I have only found
one snake and one baby toad.
That toad sure hopped a lot. I showedhim/her
that I could hop just as well as it could.
I hopped every time it did!
Guess that all the news that's fit to print!
We will be celebrating Christmas
on July 27th.
I can harly wait.
I need to rest up so I can be in
top form. I'll let you know how
Christmas turns out
