    Evening all been busy and sorry for not checking in been doing canning at night till I drop and tomorrow is corn more kraut and beans did pickles today and salsa and of course pulling weeds,  Ugh! Hate them but tiring to keep them at bay so I don’t have so many weeds next year.  Don’t know what is wrong with my annual asters this year I cut them before planting and they still sent up a single stem and bloomed and didn’t bush out at all. Other than that just to busy at work got the seed inventory done but need to order seed and sow some more this week and also need to get the across plants ordered.  Just a really bad time again and they didn’t replace the last two that quit this last month don’t know what they are thinking. Oh that right they are never ther one vacation all the time.

    Marilyn hope you found something you liked to buy at the craft show

    carol so sorry about the bathroom mess people just never have any pride in what they do now days just hurry up and get it done.

    Evening everybody another hot and humid day here again am getting tired of this weather really fast could use a break really soon.  Was hot in the greenhouses again but stayed the whole day maybe not tomorrow we will see, I can’t wait till fall gets here.  Drank so much water today I feel bloated.   The only thing that kept us from mot dieting today was the  winds  they were about 15 miles an hour.  Ate some sweet corn out of the garden with fresh pickles and green beans and the potatoes I dug and  that was supper a full meal.   Other than that not much going on here I would love to send this humidity to someone that would appreciate it.

    carol how is the bathroom coming along?  I hope good one of these days I the next 15 years I hope to get mine done I not holding my breath for it will take a lot of work I know we will have to replace the floor for the tub is shifting so there must be a leak underneath it I am thinking but until it is ready to fall in my dh won’t budge unless next year I get really upset before spring starts and start tearing into the whole mess myself.

    marilyn what did the dr say I hope you are feeling better.  Sounds like you had a nice trip yesterday and ice cream to boot  yummy.  How did the trench work out did you get it all filled back in?

    Lair. I am glad the kitty is doing better for you and starting to walk on it and wanting to be outside again.  How is your vegetable  garden coming along?  Congratulations to you and  Andy on the project you helped him with that is great it going to state fair wonderful.   Nice you got a good rain nothing here and the cracks in the ground are getting bigger and bigger had to water some of the annuals or they would be dead by now.

    mary Mary Mary you be careful in that heat I learned the hard way a few years back also and I carry water with me wherever I go and I drink at least a 32 oz every 4 hours in this heat and I still get kind of woozy so then it is to the sink to run water over my wrist and that seems to cool me down real fast I read that somewhere to do that.  The weeds can wait for we don’t need you sick that is for sure!  I have so many it will take till winter get get them all under control.

    sandy how was your weekend at work?  Is DD talking to you yet?  Hope you got a good rest today.

    leroy good for you to get a rain you could of shared for we didn’t get a drop  hope you had a good day at work,

    hi to Jan, alma ,Caden and anyone else

    You are all right the first one is calendula but the second one is not a black eyed Susan so you will have to keep guessing The plants really look nice and healthy and must love where you have them.  Hope they are giving you joy for I am enjoying seeing them at your place.

    Had to stop and start a new post it was taking to long for the words I type to come up

    Sandy. I know your DD you love but she has got to get some respect to your things and house for sure if she is going to stay there pitching in is one requirement and paying some rent is another, because I am sure you electric bill is higher and yOur water bill when you have that many more people living there.  Pregnant or not she has to help out and find a place to live and be responsible for herself and all those children she has mouths to feed.   I hope after awhile you both come to an understanding and yesterday I probably wouldn’t hold my breath on what Chris said he is going to do for you he should for wasn’t he the one that was helping himself to all your nice firewood that is the least he can do to pay you back.  Glad most of your garden is doing good for you I have a over abundance of a lot of things this year even afterngiving a bunch away.  The weather has been just right for a garden right now I am going to make some sour kraut to ferment in the basement, froze a lot of green bean and have more to pick, froze some cabbage for soups , making some dill pickles, and the zucchini needs picked again just been making them in a pan with a little butter and onion and fish peppers out of the garden.  I got about a half of a pail of cherry tomatoes and it won’t be long till the others are ready then it is salsa time and I can’t wait love making that the house smell so good.  Oh and I picked the first row of sweet corn to eat and out it in the walkin cooler at work till I can get to it.  The squash are going bananas in the garden have so many put n don’t know what I will do with all of them have a great weekend at work I have to water this weekend also in the heat so will be fun might have to put the hose n myself instead of the plants.

    mary  you sure could send some of that rain this way and I love Brylie hat in your picture she is so darn cute in it.  Have you done any fishing at your farm pond or did you sell that land?  I forget.  Are you going to see the kids this weekend?

    leroy  hope you have a great day at work

    jan what have you been up to

    alma do you still have the slugs or snail that you are feeding? Did you get all your plants sold?

    well I need to do something now beings I wrote a book and drank all my lemonade tea up hope you all have a great evening and a great weekend I hope to get on soon again

    May God Bless You All

    Hot hot hot heat index over 100 again and I am not liking it at all but right now I am at home to darn hot to work the soil temps in the greenhouse are running 101 and the air temps are 112 so out the door I sent everyone including me. It is too hot to do anything in there.  There will be better days.  Well I think finally I am in a better mood than the last 3 weeks I got into one of those I couldn’t seem to drag myself out of people really got me down and finally last night I said to hell with it I need to take care of myself and karma will get them for what they are doing to others I just hope I live long enough to see it.  I don’t know how some people can tell lie after lie and people still believe them.  Right now I am sitting outside on my front porch enjoying the sounds of the birds and watching all the different kinds of butterflies I got going on. Monarchs, swallowtail, blue swallowtail, yellow ones, little bitty blue ones, and of course the plain old white cabbage ones. There must be thousands of them flying around.  And the flowers are looking good right now also my phlox are so very pretty this years and bright.  My zinnias are just starting to bloom beings I got them out so late but they are pretty also.   The birds are really using the bird bath today beings it is so hot. Just wish the flys would leave me alone but can’t have everything right.  Tonight I am taking the girls scouts out to pizza and a movie so that should be fun, we try to go at least twice a year but I haven’t gone the last 4 times but sent the checkbook and the mothers to go, but this time I am going with them the mothers said last week we aren’t going without you this time for all the work you do. I keep telling them it is for the girls not me.

    Marilyn. You better take care of yourself swelling is not good hope you get to felling better soon.  I also have plant sitting here waiting to be planted but some are getting to late for me to put in.  So the will be compost for they are some annual asters,zinnia, and marigolds oh well maybe next year.

    carol it sure will be nice to get your bathroom done one of these days mine will get there too I hope!  Did you take a before and after picture.  What kind of new fixtures did you go with and what kind of tub?  We need two new toilets I both of our bathroom for they don’t flush unless you plunge them after going, they are so old they just don’t work anymore I guess 30 some years is enough they say.  We also like Lair will have to take walls out to get to the plumbing and I have to crawl under the house to do some work also there don’t want to even think about it yet.  I also think I want one of those walk in tub with some jets for relaxing with in the winter time.  Glad Jerry got his car back I hope it is in one piece and runs good yet.  Did they arrest her for taking it and she will probably get get a slap on the hand now days

    lair it is sure nice you can help Andy out with all his stuff. What kind of picture frames are you making?  I hope his project gets good ratings at the fair is this the state fair he is taking it too? I been weeding and weeding here also I might have to looking into me if those tillers beings you like your so much it would sure help me out.  Instead of on my hands and knees all the time, but I didn’t feel so bad for the gut at work his beds look worst than mine do we are so far behind this year on our stuff.   Yes Lair we have a 18 foot pontoon boat and I love it but we haven’t had it out since 2011 and I just got mad the other day and said what is the sense of having a boat that sits in the shed all the time we have a nice lake only  8 miles away from us that is nice to putter around on it is a no wake lake and they say the bass fishing is really good I don’t care if it is or not just to relax and drive around n it is enough for me I love the water and if it was up to me I would live on a lake

    caden my garlic didn’t do a darn thing this year just a shame too send some rain this way
