Today is Telly’s 11th birthday!
She’s such a good girl and just wants to be close by one of us all the time. She came here after we constructed all the fencing around our farm – she belonged to one of the fence workers who continued to contact me about Telly – begging me to let her live with us. She was able to jump over their fence and would follow the kids to the park. I finally relented and we are the lucky ones! You can see I gave in and have never regretted it. She’s a sweetie pie!
The wind is relentless! I planted my garden today but it will be a surprise where or if anything comes up. I planted a big assortment of pumpkins and have enlisted the church youth group to pick them in the fall and take them to town to sell them. I will keep the ones I want and the rest will be a donation.
When I delivered flowers to the cemetery at Crystal Lake, my hometown, I drove down by the lake and had to take a picture of the local attraction – THE WORLD LARGEST BULLHEAD! Haha! You might not even be familiar with this type of fish which we grew up on but it’s a type of catfish. When dad would take us fishing this is what we caught at Crystal Lake. Fried bullhead and fried potatoes – yum!
Are you watching Yellowstone this weekend? I still love this show and will watch more tomorrow. The wind is sucking all the moisture out of my plants and I will water thoroughly tomorrow – too bad it won’t rain tonight.
I’m sewing on Bitcoin – mindless sewing – and trying to get caught up on the long arm. Soon I’ll have lots to show you.
The kittens are settling in at their new home in California.
A new ice cream store opened in Garner.
Hazel and Telly got all their shots updated yesterday because they’re going to the groomer this week.
Connie and I are going to visit our friend Gloria on Thursday – she has a new house and a new quilting studio that we can’t wait to see!
This week is much calmer than last week – whew!
Happy Memorial Day to all of you! Late in the day we’ll go for a ride with the dogs and pick up the flowers at two cemeteries. We’re looking forward to a low key day – we haven’t had many of those recently.
