-1-Christine heard my pleas for someone to relieve me of some Hostas and other plants that I wanted to remove from my gardens. These plants now have a new home - Yeah!
-2-What a wonderful visit we had when she came to pick up the plants! Himself and I enjoyed chatting, discussing life and solving world issues with Christine.
-3-I took a week's vacation at the end of June, beginning of July. It was one of those "stay-cations" with just a few day trips thrown in. While I love where I work now, I need at least one of those weeks each summer. Time to sleep in and futz around the house and yard is much needed.
-4-We took the recommendation of Emily and tried a new-to-us local brewery, Hoppin' Frog. What a find! We enjoyed every beer we tried on our sampler flight. We even made a second trip to pick up some for our brother-in-law. If you live nearby or are visiting the area and like beer, it's a must try.
-5-I spent a lot of time in the gardens over vacation. All of the pots of perennials from Dad are now happily planted. I think all totaled, he sent over two dozen splits from his garden. I am glad to have that job done.
-6-I spent Independence Day afternoon with my niece (and her parents). Sara wanted her toenails painted and returned the favor by doing mine, and my toes as well. We had happy feet!
-7-Sara turned three this week. She brings such joy to all our lives - she is the sun, moon and stars!
-8-Usually on Saturday mornings we go to the park for a walk before breakfast. Seeing the sun again was lovely.
-9-What a glorious morning it has been! After our hike and a little weeding in the flower garden, we enjoyed breakfast on the patio.
-10-I tried a new dessert out on my sister and brother-in-law on Independence Day. I had some peaches that were looking like they would be going bad soon, so I found a coffee cake online. I added some cherries to it as well and it was a big hit. Does anyone even use cookbooks with all that can be found on the net?
