Do not necessarily get me down. This one is mellow, cozy, a stay-inside with the story people kind of day. Despite an early morning bout of flu or something, I’m fine–just a little flimsy, is all.
My daughter Wendy is on her way for a long-anticipated visit. Wednesday is my 60th birthday, and I’m so happy she’ll be here to share it. She’s been so busy with her scriptwriting career and, of course, I’ve been writing books and traveling to promote them, and it is harder and harder to coordinate our schedules.
My plants are loving this rain. My tomatoes and zuchinni especially are flourishing. I may have the whole deck covered with tomato trees next year! I’ve ordered a special pot for growing strawberries, recommended by my Aunt Billie, who received one for her 90th birthday and proclaimed it excellent. There is nothing this woman does not know about two of my favorite things–horses and gardens. (Let’s not even talk about her pies and biscuits. I firmly believe they are served in heaven.) If this Farmer Linda phenom keeps up, my deck is going to resemble a Kansas cornfield. I got crazy on the Simplyplanters.com website–they have some REALLY neat stuff.
I’m watching “The View” as I write this, and they’re talking about Twitter. I’ll soon be “tweeting” on a regular basis, and hope you’ll check it out. I’ve also got an audio podcast in the works. Stay tuned!
