It's been a looonnnggg time...

Well, it's been a long time since I wrote anything on here. Facebook is where I'm at most of the time now. Stephen is now almost 12 1/2. I can't believe he will be 13 this year. YIKES! My 20th high school reunion is this year also. Ugh. Talk about a double whammy. Still living in the same place, working at the same job. Still have the same cats and a fish. :-)

Been awhile...

For anyone I know who may still be reading this, if you are not on FB maybe you are reading it. Stephen turned 11 today. YIKES! Garden is going well (mostly). Lots of rain lately. Low 70's last week, low 90's this week. Gotta love it here. (And I do, too!) Everyone is wondering what all the rain we've had this year since March 26th means for this coming winter. Will we be "moistured out" and have a dry winter, or will we get slammed? Could be interesting. Last winter was mostly a non-event so I guess we will have to wait and see. Survived working another County Fair. 109 hours in 8 consecutive days. OT is a good thing though. My one real chance each year to get some. Stephen did very well on all 5 of his 4-H projects! Yea! His Foods & Nutrition project and his Decorate Your Duds project are going on to State Fair! Exciting! He is getting ready to start the 5th grade soon (too soon for my liking, where did the summer go?) Had a great visit with Family and Friends in Indiana earlier this summer. Good visit with Mom when she came out here to help me with Stephen during Fair. Work will still be busy now till December. We still like our church. Both cats are still alive and well. Brats. We had a little frog but it kicked the bucket. Stephen won a carnival fish at fair and it died the next day. Surprise, surprise. I bought him a beta to replace it and it's still surviving for now. No name yet because I won't let him use the same name he gave the last two betas we had. Creativity can be a hard thing for a boy. :) That's the quick version of our lives lately. More sometime down the road, no promises when though.

More SNOW! Ughhhhh!

For those of you who had snow lately, you are not alone. We woke up to snow on the cars, grass and trees this morning. Luckily the roads were just slush. We got about 4 inches of heavy, wet stuff. Not exactly conducive to gardening. :) I took a picture of it but forgot to change the path where I wanted my computer to save it to and now I can't move it. Duh. That will teach me to pay attention to where it is putting stuff next time. I guess we need the moisture, but enough with the snow already! It is supposed to be the end of April, not that you would know it here.

New Garden

Stephen and I are looking forward to planting. Stephen and I have a plot in a community garden near where I work again this year. We are going to plant 4 different tomatoes, cantaloupe, peas, green beans, two types of lettuce, spinach, potatoes, zuchinni, carrots, pumpkins, cucumbers and corn. Yea! We shared a plot with a co-worker last year and it worked great. (Pics are posted in an older post.) We both wanted to expand this year so we have our own plots this year. It's still been chilly pretty wet lately so we are kind of biding our time till we can get going.

Backwards Seasons

Not too much has been happening here. Our seasons are all mixed up right now. We had a really mild winter - only about 18 inches of snow total in the Denver area. Now that it is Spring, we have had snow every couple of days including one storm that gave us a foot. That was last Thursday, clear last Friday, Saturday and Sunday, snow Monday, clear Tuesday, snow yesterday, clear today and we are supposed to get another big storm tomorrow night and all day Saturday of up to a foot, clear for a couple days then another storm next Wednesday. Pretty mixed up.

On another note, 78 days till we go see the family and our friends in Terre Haute and Brazil for two weeks! Yea!!!

Happy Birthday to Tom!

On Feb. 2nd, my youngest brother, Tom, turned 27! Happy birthday to him! I will have to do some searching to find a picture of him when he was little to put up here.
