My Gosh it's been ages since my last post, almost 2 weeks.
I knew there would be very little spare time now that the Spring season was here but I never expected that I would be away this long.
I've miss all of you and as busy as I've been I think of you all the time.
Ok I'll admit it
I'm addicted to blogging.
It's been killing me that I've have gone whole days without even getting a peak to visit anyone.
What are you all up to??
and what exciting things have you made,
What wonderful places have you traveled to?
What delicious food have you eaten???
These are pictures I took from some of the first days we
were opened.....seems so long ago.
and sadly we no long have any pansies left so it's nice to at least
get to see them again in pictures.
Love there happy faces!
but the deadheading I could do without:))
and yes the tulips are no long with us either.
...and the sweet smell of the hyacinth are but a faint memory.
Hydrangeas were especially colorful and soon we'll be looking forward to
the other varieties that bloom in the Summer. Have I told you before how much I love Hydrangeas???
Probably one of my top 10 favorites.
Can't really pick the variety I like best.
That's just too hard.
When we've been lucky we've had time to play with the twins.
Haven't they grown like weeds?
and OMG are they funny! and not only do they look
so different but they act so differently.
Clio(Coco) on the left is so serious and
Felicia ( Fifi) though they call her Flea for short:)) is the giggly one.
wonder if she'll like fleamarkets??? haha
Spring is always hectic for the two of us....
About 10 days ago
George injured himself while mowing the tall grass
with the brush mower and hit a piece of 3" inch pipe with it.
It came out and hit him in the leg.
He's ok but it's was pretty scary at first.
I knew something was wrong as soon as he called me
and came running around back to see him hobbling out from the back of the lot
with his pant leg all bleeding thru.
We didn't take the time to even look at the injury but just got in the car
and speed to the clinic.
Luckily he hadn't hit an artery or he would have
bleed out in the car before we got there.
It's been a struggle to get thru the days since then
but we've had extra help and some help from good friends which has been such a blessing.
So many have offered to give us a hand in any way possible.
It been really touching to know that people care.
This will help to explain why I have been away for
all this time too....needing to make sure that I was there and more
focused to his needs.
It's made us appreciate how vulnerable we are and not to take anything for
I hesitated to say anything about it since I don't
often like to bring up ugly news but
since it's turned out to be not as bad as it
could have and he's recovering well, I thought
I'd share it.
He's been having to sit down with his feet elevated for part of the day....
though it should be more like MOST of the day.
He reminded me today that this
does not count as vacation time like I
had when I went on our girls weekend last Fall
at Laura's lakehouse.
I guess after this he deserves more then
a few days away.
I wonder what I could get him???
maybe a spa day??
Whata ya think?
