It's 85 degrees outside and I'm sitting in the house!

      Grating soap! Thank you Rubi! I was taking the dogs for their walk when I passed by the apple trees and noticed something. They had new growth! I was so excited, I ran over to where they are. Rubi was way down the driveway but when she saw me running, here she comes! BAM! right into my right lower leg and foot! I fell down to the ground in pain! Rubi was all in my face! She thought I was playing! All I could do was sit there! I took off my shoe but my foot looked fine. Rubi got my hat, but somehow I managed to get it away from her. The other dogs came over and investigated and decided to sit down next to me and wait til I was ready to walk again. I didn't have a stick or a cell phone. Cars seldom drive by at that time of day. I finally got the courage to put my shoe back on, and try to stand. I did! It didn't hurt! I walked around a bit, still no pain. I decided to continue with my walk. When I got back, I got the shovel and dug some stubborn weeds from the front flower bed, then got the wheelbarrow and took the weeds to the chicken yard. I was getting hungry, so I came in for lunch. I think I sat too long, cause when I got up, I couldn't walk! I was in pain! I thought if I put on my shoes, that will help support my foot. So, I did and went outside. Or should I say, hobbled outside. I really didn't think I was going to make it, but I went ahead and took some photos, before coming back inside. Now, I sit here and write this. Ya'll know how much I love to be outside! Ya'll know what all I need to be doing! Please pray that I'll be well by tomorrow! I've got too much to do to be sitting! I can't even wash my dishes! Or cook supper! I'm not swollen or bruised! At least it hasn't shown up yet. All the more reason I need to get some freezer meals made! I'm not prepared for this! At least the weather is pretty, and I can enjoy it from inside! And I can visit ya'lls blogs! I will make the most of this time! I hope to be back with good news soon! Have a nice week! Blessings from Bama!

We had these two Friday and Saturday! Oops! The bib is on the wrong baby!

Did you say something to me, Aunt FeFe? The photos don't do the eyes justice!


Big sister, baby sister!

She makes the Keria beautiful! It has bloomed all winter!

Trying solar cooking. Didn't work.

Tried again today, but it never boiled. Unless it did after I hurt my foot! I used a crock since that was the only black pot I had. A painted glass jar is recommended.

I love forsythia! I was digging in the upper corner of this bed. You can see all of the growth that still needs to come out. Yes, our neighbors are very close.

The orange iris is about to bloom!

The purple irises never seem to tire of blooming!

The growth doesn't show up well in this photo. This is what caused my accident!

The new growth shows up better on this one.

A few blooms popping out on the Lady Banks rose.

There are lots of buds about to open; just can't see them in the photos.

  4. Oh, I hope you are feeling better today. You are way too busy to have to wait on an injury to heal. Every year your purple irises always put on such a great show..... and I am so jealous as ours open later, and don't bloom anywhere near as profusely as yours!! I can completely understand your joyous excitement to discover your apple tree's new growth! Sending thoughts and prayers your way. Hugs.

    1. Thank you Lisa! The first thing my husband said was, "I can't have you hurt!" It's nice to know he realizes that I help him a lot! The irises seem to like it here! I was so excited because I've checked on them so often to find nothing! Thanks Lisa, hugs to you too!
