Ice Cream

Tonight DSH and I went to a book store to listen to a writer talk about his book. This was a first for us. Very interesting but we didn't stay for the whole thing. On the way home we decided to get a snack and maybe some coffee ( who cares if it keeps me up all night running to the potty!). It was almost 9:00pm. We drove and drove looking for a snack type place. Didn't want to go to a dinner place. We were in Mountain View. Lots of book stores, Asian restaurants and Indian restaurants, but no dessert places. Wait, there's Baskin Robbins Ice Cream, they're open. We slow down and CAN'T BELIEVE OUR EYES!!! The line is out the door. The line is going around the building! What the heck???? It's not even hot outside. It's cold! Maybe there is a business opportunity here. We didn't stop. We didn't want to wait. We went home and baked some cookie dough I made the other day. I would have enjoyed the ice cream :D

I am soooooo proud :D Bailey, the English Cocker Spaniel caught a rat this morning! She has been on the hunt for rats, mice, squirrels, birds, etc. since we got her. She always gets her bird with "Dad" (aka as DSH), hunting beside her. But, a rat is a different matter. I sure wish I was computer savvy enough to put a picture on my blog. Of course, it would have helped if I had taken one. She would have to be successful while we were getting ready for work!

Imagine a small black dog with a big, fat, ugly, dead rat in her mouth.

Good girl, Bailey!

It is a hot day here in Northern California. I decided it was time to plant my garden. DSH went to Orchard Supply Hardware with me and we got some compost, vegetable plants, light bulbs and two cute little chairs for the granddaughters. We ate a late lunch and then I churned up the soil, removed the new weeds that had sprung up since the last major weeding event, dumped out the dark compost and played in the dirt. I placed my little plants in their intended spot then dug a hole to make them comfy in their new home. I planted various types of tomatoes, cantaloupe, Japanese cucumber, bell pepper, artichokes and zucchini. I know I will have too many tomatoes but that is ok. We will share.

I had to clean up the mess I made (I hate that part) and then everybody, including me, got a big drink. The plants got Miracle Grow in their water and I got tea with sugar in my water!

What a beautiful day. A blessing from the Lord.

Tax Day

Happy Tax Day! Is there such a thing? Our taxes were done long ago and we did get a little back so that was a blessing.

It has been terribly windy yesterday and a bit today. Baby apricots falling off the tree, leaves everywhere, fence trying to blow over! Quite exciting! We had to tie the fence to the trees so it wouldn't fall down. Time for a new fence, me thinks.

Until next time, may God richly bless you my beloved.
