The Side Garden

With the strange and rainy weather the gardens seem to be a bit behind.  The tomatoes I grew inside are still smallish compared with the ones you buy.  Tomorrow I am going to pick up a couple of heirloom 6 packs of them.  I think in the end its easier to purchase these.  The cost of seeds is what a 6 pack goes for.    It would be better for me to start pumpkins and squash I think..  Who knows they may catch up but I do want to insure lots of tomatoes.  I plant to can, freeze and dry tomatoes this year.

Last night I was later going out to the outside hens.   SOmething told me to walk on the road instead of walking around the house.  Good thing I listened, there was Mr. or Mrs. Skunk near the strawberries.  Busy eating some tasty morsel.  That is what is digging its way into the hens every night.  Eating what they did not finish.  Well if I had gone my usual way i would have walked right into it and who knows what would have happened.  He meandered under the porch.


I talked with Mom last night.  SHe had a busy day.  Her dead husband and herself went out for a drive.  This is the good side of dementia.  Sometimes if you are lucky you relive the happier times in your life and see the people you loved  frequently.  My Mom goes shopping with her Mom, I think its nice.  WHen my Mom is in this stage she is happier.

The Piano

The piano now is in its place, not where I thought it would go but a good place just the same.  Away from the outside walls and not in direct sunlight.    I am still in the middle of moving things around.  I did a the Seamus hooked piece up and I like where it is.  That was a fun project and all the yarn in it is from my Seamus’.














The Doll in the Bell Jar

This doll was given to my by my Grandmother along with two others.  This one was my favorite because  besides having red hair almost the color of mine I loved the gown and watched my Grandmother crochet it.  I found the bell jar in Vermont, I need to find two more.  These dolls were bought at a local 5 and dime.




Many thanks for reading my blog and I hope you have a wonderful day.    Carole
