It’s Friday…

It’s Friday and I’m only just now sitting down to post. Even though I don’t have a regular “job,” I still somehow manage to stay super busy these days. In the mornings I take care of cats, ducks and garden. I am slowly getting things organized in the garden for the winter. I am leaving…

Beel Cleentohn…

I don’t know where H and I came up with that pronunciation…Beel Cleentohn…but it’s a favorite. We got to experience a little more of Bill Clinton on our trip.

Another day…

Been up since 5:30 a.m., mostly doing things around the house and outside. I got a few sunflower heads cut. One of my largest didn’t get dry on the back side and was molding so I’m hoping it will now that I’ve stuck it on a table by the pool. It’s fairly windy again to…
