Memorial Day Weekend

But it feels more like Labor Day.  Mac has most of the old pool down and I've been polishing floors, making bread and cleaning out my painting/crafting area.  Wound up a bunch of yarn balls and carried stuff upstairs to my messy craft room---its next.
Going to be hot today, around 94┬║ so trying to get everything done early so we don't melt.
Have quite a bit more energy since I got my B-12 shot, they help a lot.  Been taking them for a couple of years and they make a difference.  When I first started taking them I took them in my upper arm alternating between left and right.  The right one was fine, but the left one was always sore and miserable for a week or more, not the injection site, but the whole muscle.
After about a year I talked to the doctor about taking it in the upper hip instead.  I've had no problems since then.  I've read that the shot needs to be at body temperature and injected slowly.  I'm working with new nurses, but so far they've been great.
The first tomatoes of the season, cherry tomatoes.  We never have much luck with tomatoes, this plant will probably croak now that it's given us a few, but I'll enjoy what I have.
Some more Gladiolas too!


  1. My mother hated cherry tomatoes; especially when I process them to fill up a jar for the canner.

  2. Your tomatoes look so tasty.
    The flowers beautiful.
    cheers, parsnip and thehamish

  3. I like the pig. We should be picking our first tomatoes in about three weeks.

  4. So glad you are feeling better with more energy. Hope you have a great weekend.

  5. Glad to hear you are feeling better. I must admit to missing the produce from the garden, your tomatoes look delicious.

  6. I do like your little piggy. Mmmm, you can't beat home grown tomatoes, mine are a way off yet but I'm looking forward to them all the same.

  7. Glad you are feeling better. Your new header picture is amazing... is it home drawn/painted?

  8. It's a painting my husband did, it's a copy of one I saw in a book, can't remember who the original artist was.

  9. My tomato plants are blooming, so we will get tomatoes...

  10. Love your gladioli, what a gorgeous colour.
    Your tomatoes look good to me!

    All the best Jan

  11. I'm glad you're feeling better. It sounds as if you got a lot done around the house before it got too hot. Your gladioli are a welcome sight. Home grown tomatoes - delicious! Wishing you a relaxing day.

  12. Polishing floors and baking bread...those B-12 shots sound like they did their job!!!

  13. I gave my first tomato to my honey this morning as a birthday present! I'm surprised it made it into the house without me helplessly popping it into my own mouth.
    The painting in your header surprised me. I'm used to seeing anImals I guess.

    1. It's not something he'd paint on his own, but he did it for me. She hangs on the stairs by another lovely lady.

  14. I've never had much luck growing tomatoes, so now I just buy them at the farmer's market.


A Bit of a Milestone

Friday I went to the commissary with Mac to grocery shop and I managed to get all of it done without having to sit down and rest.  That ma...
