YES!!! For a while there, I was considering building an ark and loading up all my critters, two by two. It didn’t help that I had the worst case of flu I’ve had in years. I’m definitely on the mend now, though, and the proof is in the pudding, as they say, because I actually WROTE yesterday. I have been so frustrated with being sick and I’m super-grateful to be getting well again.
As I write this, I hear birds singing, and everything is so intensely GREEN. The few things I’d managed to plant before the advent of my bubonic plague are flourishing–I do have a little crop of lettuce that I’ve been raiding for salads for a couple of weeks now. Teeny green tomatoes are forming and my strawberry plants are going wild in their special pot, recommended last year by my Aunt Billie, the one who still rides at 91. Most of the peonies are already gone, but one bush, planted by the previous owners, is just about to bust out with some blooms.
The iPad, my latest gadget, has already won my heart. Last night I watched a new episode (I think) of “American Pickers”, and the second “Persons Unknown”, on the amazing device–also the pilot of a show called “The Gates”. Loved the first, liked the second, think I’ll pass on the third. I love the portability of my new toy, and I’ve just scratched the surface of what the thing will actually do. I hope to be able to blog on it when I’m away from home, but I’ll still be lugging a laptop around. Probably.
As far as I know, I’ll be home until December, when I plan on attending the big rodeo in Las Vegas again. There’s a good chance I’ll be doing another shindig with Bally’s; what a time I had last year! Yee-haw, that’s all I’ve got to say.
And that’s the news from my kitchen table.
