Hello everyone and thanks so much for your patience, your wonderful comments and for all the emails. It feels good to be missed but I've been on my knees in the garden for so long that I think I took root in the damp ground. I must be well grounded by now. I was so very tired yesterday as I walked to the barn in muggy weather that I felt that the only thing that kept me up were my boots.  As I thought this, I started to giggle to myself. hehe...

It took me 3 days of weeding to get this big garden done.

This one was so full of tall sun drop plants that i only pulled the tall grass on the edge because it was getting into seed head.

The lower portion of this double bed (at the top) is done as well as the semi-circular on on the left are weeded.

Sorry about the bad lighting in late afternoon but that's another long flowerbed done.

This whole garden is also done but I only show about half here.

The circular peony bed is also weeded.

 These are my three little rows of potatoes that are full of weeds and it was weeded today and my potatoes were all hoed up.

My rosebush was done also. I have many flower pictures but it will be for another time.

I finished hooking my Grandfather rug a while back and as I hooked at night I couldn't see the different shade of wool as they looked exactly the same shade to me but when I took a photo in day light I was horrified that it didn't matched the other side.  I may have to pull those "S"s and hook them in the same shade of the left background if I still have some left but it will have to wait...

I wanted to put some of my granddaughter Jordyn winter clothes into storage in my basement and I bagged up the clothes and started to put them into totes I purchased at Walmart. I realized that I had one  tote that was bigger than the others and I checked on my receipt and realized that they had charged me for all 7 tall totes. I took photos of the bins and the labels and took my camera to Walmart and they fixed the error in a few minutes and I got my debit account credited. I was rushing as usual to get home on time to get to the barn.

It has been raining every other day and I been busy de-cluttering the spare bedroom and fixing  a bunch of work pants for my husband and myself, and hemming some pants for myself.
There is still so much to do and it will probably never get all done.

I'm looking forward to seeing my daughter Christine and here family this weekend coming.

I got a new heifer calf today and she was named Lemmon by Victoria, my son's girlfriend. She came to help me care for the calves as I needed to get off early to attend a social and I gave her the honor of naming the calf.

You all mean a lot to me even though  I didn't had time to visit everyone today, but I'll make my rounds during my frequents mini breaks during the day in the next few days.

I'm in need of sleep soI didn't edit this post. Pleas forgive the errors.
