That’s how many days I have to get my sh*t together before I leave for Guam, anybody want to take bets on how many things I forget no matter HOW many lists I make??
I leave July 23rd and come back September 25th…When I shared this news on FB, Avery’s Mom commented “Seriously I don’t know how I’ll make it…. she’s not even gone yet and I’m already having separation anxiety. …. this baby better be really really good!!!!” Which made me giggle but also made me realize that 60 days away from home is a long, looooooong time and it’s gonna be tough no matter how tropical paradise-y Guam is….
So that’s my news. In the next 42 days you better believe I’ll be stocking up on all the Peanut hugs and kisses I can get before she squawks at me to put her down!
Here’s what’s going on around the homestead:
My lilac is blooming…I love that it’s a different variety than everyone else’s so it blooms after the others are done!
My Hot Wings Maple is COVERED with samara buds, and I was so afraid that the early thaw we had in February followed by the rest of winter had killed it (we lost another tree) so this makes me super happy! However the samaras turn vivid red in August so I’ll miss it…BOO.
My Columbine are gorgeous even after almost letting them die in the pots before planting them….my bad.
The branches on my Russian Olive tree are almost touching the ground which means it is woefully in need of pruning…ick.
Made this out of an old tomato cage turned upside down, some twine and old clay pots one day when I was bored and depressed. Cheered me right up!
I put the mini wheelbarrow I brought home from the Bremerton WA Goodwill to good use!
This was Peanut striding purposefully across the yard to tell me enough with the picture taking, it was time to go for a walk…
I found this plant stand on clearance at Hobby Lobby. It was brown. I changed that…. 🙂
I will never convince her it’s not an actual bike…
My Cat Mint is outta control again, mostly cuz I keep forgetting to divide it in the fall….
Love the expression, no clue what it means!
She’s trying to escape the hugs….
I’ve decided not to close the Blog, but I am going to move it to a free hosting site; WordPress, Blogger etc….any suggestions or recommendations? Pro’s or Con’s?
