Bubbles, Greens, and Splashes for Partying

Happy Birthday, Ttot. You are 7 years old. How time flies! I am glad this group is around and somehow shaped me to look at the positive side of my life including theirs. This is a group I want to continue to be part of. They are contagious in a good way. This is how I celebrate this week. Here is the recent growth of my transplants and direct sow. The eggplant is looking good. The beans look happy as well. I got sweet potatoes too. In the Philippines, they are called "kamote." I've always liked it. I have a pair of strawberries to date from a plant. This renewed hobby keeps me happy, so far. It looks like, I won't be going on long vacations this year so I might as well keep a hobby while staying close to home. My daughter and granddaughter are doing some planting on their own too, and help me once in a while with mine. Paul does not care about any planting. But he'd go with me on some walks and hikes. Here is one from today. It was a good 4-mile hike on a nice day

Thankful for Warm May

The warm days have come, and so the scare of frost has left Colorado. So I wish. To be safe, I started farming mushrooms indoors. I need the motivation I can grow something. It has been 5 years since I did gardening for a hobby. The easiest way is to purchase a kit, of course. Within ten days, I had oyster mushrooms ready for harvest. Look at the progression of growth from one day to another.  Look at the pictures below of Josiah and me. What a year of change. My little grandson grew so much. Come to think of it, last year, I did not have to wear a mask when heading outdoors. I am thankful we are not inflicted with serious diseases. We did not attend any graduation this year. There was no regular celebration of any kind I heard of anyway. The bakeries are open for a curbside pick up though. So we got a cake for Paul's son for graduating from high school with good grades. Yesterday, I left work early from severe migraine, nausea, and using the emesis bag 4 times too many. I am grate

Gardening Hobby

I started a planting hobby this month. I figure planting is something I can have fun with alone. I started mostly from seeds and picked the ones I know I like and likely eat.

Simple Gratitude with Family and Greens

Cloth Masks

I am virtually running after the wagon, trying to hop in to join the happy group full of grateful people. Here I am. I made it on a Tuesday afternoon. I am thankful for the togetherness in my household the stay-at-home, safe-at-home, whatever-you-call-it orders bring. I am thankful for the simplicity and beauty of the activities we are left to do. Walking outdoors? Yes! I feel grateful that I have one dog left to encourage us to walk. Two playful grandchildren, one walking, the other, a future walker. I hope. He is 13 months expert climber and crawler. Cloth masks from work, friends, and neighbors. I treat them as undergarments. They have to be laundered and dried often. (I use a coffee filter insert that is unbleached and garbage bag ties for the metal nose part. I do not believe HEPA-filter is a good idea for the danger of inhaling ground glass). No-spill special toddler cups. I can use one for myself. :) The beauty of Colorado within ten miles of my home. It
