It's gonna be a hot one today--mid 90's. I've already taken my 5 mi walk--early to beat the heat. My dog had her tongue out the whole way. No water for her.

I made a banana strawberry walnut bread last yest and had it for breakfast. With coffee, natch.

Hope you all have a good weekend.

Randy, strange spring with hot and cold spells and constant wind, like a spring should be, but not with such wide swings of temperature or intensity of the wind. 

I moved back into my home in Spokane and am happy that I made this decision. My unfortunate family works so hard on my behalf. L & L Acres and all the people and critters treated me with kindness and love; yet, my heart is in my garden doing the things that bring me pleasure. 

My April 23 post told of a shed fire while I was still living at L&L Acres in the country. Those fire calls and requests for help come in night and day; L&L respond to almost all of them, even as they keep up their business responsibilities and maintain their home and acreage.  I can't believe I ever had as much energy as they. 

My energy level is way down; thankfully, Cary is here to pick up my slack. He keeps the front yard pristine; the back yard is a jungle and will stay that way for the summer.

Fresh strawberries with yogurt for my Saturday morning breakfast. Coffee, of course. Looks like a gloomy day weather-wise. I'll make the best of it. We need the rain. Hope your day is bright.

Indiana has those plates. Not on my truck!

What could be better than blueberry pancakes and coffee to start off the weekend? I'm taking my grandkids to their T-ball baseball game this morning. It becomes the longest hour in history, but it's what one does. Enjoy your holiday weekend.

Freshly brewed coffee with hot oatmeal, and I'm ready to start the day. No golf today, but I will walk 5 miles with my dog, Dot.

The last time I commented here, I mentioned mushrooms. Sadly, I didn't have much luck this year. In the old days, I used to trip over them. I don't know what's happened. The past 10 years have been a washout. By the way, mushrooms are very popular in Greece. I got my fill!

I'm glad we got that straightened out.

Sorry about the fire and bad weather, Joan. While our 2" of rain Friday will keep the farmers (including my SIL) out of the fields, it is good for my yard and garden--and mushrooms! 'Tis the season.

Thanks Joan, I'll try not to be so chaotic next time...

A wretched day, yesterday. Cold, windy, icy rain pelting down in heavy sheets. I waited for a calm spell to walk through the forest to feed the chickens. Got home just in time for another furious lightning, thunder, downpour. 

There was a shed fire day before yesterday at a neighbor's home and the entire family filed out to fight the blaze. There was a total loss to the shed, the garage had heat damage, and the house was saved. Laura was busy in the morning trying to get the Fire District report to the auditor on time when the fire call came in. She fought the fire and was late with the report. Her excuse, "fighting a fire."

Chris, the first paragraph:

"Just being happy with what I have, not wanting things around that confuse me or interrupt what I am doing, is just fine. I have a cell phone in my car but only because I sometimes can't find my way home, even on familiar streets. My son-in-law asked if he could install a GPS unit on my car and I most gratefully said yes. I have never used the cell phone they gave me." 

startled me because it was mine. The rest of the piece confirmed my impression,
I'm glad it was useful for your class and I appreciate the kind words.
