Daffodils are like a beam of sunshine

I just love daffodils, I wish they bloomed all summer.
They are so bright and cheery.
The warm days give me hope that soon I will be spending loads of time in the garden.
I feel so up and happy to enjoy yet another spring!!
Life is good.

Exercising my right to vote!

Today I decided to cast my ballot. I went around 10am and there were only 2 other people there and I was the youngest of them all. I sure do hope the young people get out there and vote. This election could be a turn around for our nation. I am hoping and praying for peace soon. War is devastating and I do believe it is ripping apart our country, therefore, I voted for change and I am proud of it. I encourage you to take the time out of your busy life and vote.

Happy 17th Birthday (yesterday)

One of Bays favorite shirts: Brains not Bombs!

My baby girl is 17. Baybay is such a unique girl. One of a kind, she is strongwilled just like her mommy. She is totally against the mainstream of the world. She tells me she was born in the wrong era. She says that she is a 60-70's girl. She loves the Beatles and she wishes for peace in the world. Baylee has the most awesome sense of humor. Happy Birthday weekend. Her friend, Tera, gave her a surprise party last night and she was so SURPRISED and had a terrific time.

Texas sweet onions

I am proud to say that I actually planted my Texas Sweet onions 1015Y today. 2 rows of them. The soil was perfect and very easy. Now I am just waiting for the spinach and lettuce. I also am in search of my annual snapdragon and stock purchase. I looked a few places but none to be found yet, maybe next week. I am glad the sun is shining and tomorrow is looking to be a beautiful day even though I will be on the road working, oh well that is better than working in the rain and cold.

Beautiful days have kept me away

I have been away because the temps have been in the 60's, 70's, and even some 80's. Yes it has been extremely windy some of the time (blowing shingles off twice) but it is a nice reprieve to have the warm sunshine in winter to get some wonderful days of gardening and outdoor meditation done. I have taken some pictures but I left the camera downstairs and I am too lazy at the moment to go get it so maybe Friday I will take the time to share some of my garden photos. Tomorrow is another work day for me.
