It truly IS the little things that make me happy. I have tried for years to grow hollyhocks. Every spring I'm drawn in like a zombie to the racks of seed packets in the stores. I see all the gorgeous pictures of the fully grown flowers on the packets and I want that soooo badly. And most of my friends know that my junk drawer in my kitchen is filled with seed packets. I can't resist! So..every year without success I try to plant seeds but they usually end up either not sprouting at all, or dying from either lack of water, or over-watering. But look at my pretty flower and my spike is full of blooms!!!! Want a sneek peek inside of one?? I know you're dying to do that.
ahhhhhhh so pretty. I love this! And yay for me for being able to grow this for the first time ever!! For a nurturer like me this is just the ultimate!
:( Now if I could just get my sweet puppy well. I read where emoticons are are big blogging no-no. Well, when it comes to expressing how I feel about my puppy I'm just going to let the emoticon show my sadness and the blogging rule makers can't just bite me!
We are still unsure of what's going on with her. But it is not good. I'm having to carry her outside to go potty. She pretty much sleeps all the time. Her tick profile has all come back negative and today we are moving on to consult specialists because we've ruled out just about everything within the scope of practice of the vet here. sad sad sad. I'm ready to get this baby girl well. I have two quick food blogs ready to work on. They're done, tasted great, and pictures are uploaded but this puppy has slowed my progress. :(
Thank you everyone on facebook for lifting me up yesterday and the anniversary of my daddy's passing. I really was ok. I have such great memories of him and when I think of him I smile. I miss him but I really do feel his spiritual presence. Pretty much all the time! I may be nuts but it is comforting. On that happy/wacky note.... have a great day! I have lots to do!! T.
I'm a wife and mom! That about sums me up! I am blessed to be married to my best friend for 28 years now. I have 2 great kids that are grown! My hobbies include: Cooking, photography, gardening, reading, painting, and pottery, and feathering my nest!
