GG has to travel for work for the next several months and I am having to learn how to do things around the house. The good news the animals stayed fed and didn't go hungry. On the other hand, I am very relieved food comes in boxes and cans for the microwave. I am good at cooking and fixing meals, just it is easier to nuke a burrito for me instead of pulling out the pots and pans.
The garden is doing good and taking off. The tomatoes have several buds and fruit coming. The salt and pepper are patiently waiting. The onions, zucchini, cantaloupe, cucumbers are rockin' along. Jalapenos leeks, and okra are hanging in there and still showing life. I hung up a couple of those upside down planters at my grandmothers house to see how well they work. The plants like it and really growing.
GG is getting ready for the weekly Walmart trip and dinner. No matter how much or little we have on the list, she drags me around for 2 or more hours. It wouldn't be so bad, but the ammo section is constantly empty and not much new in the garden section.
Family Day up at the lodge this weekend. Horseshoes and washers are on the agenda and looking forward to the fun to be had. The weather is going to be picture perfect for the event.
I need some range time. My poor guns are looking at me like they are neglected. There are clay pigeons calling for me.
Wish me luck!
Don't worry and keep your towel close....

I am tired of the news here lately. It has been the same news stories on the TV and internet. The government is bickering, someone killed and injured someone else and so on and so on.
I guess I am just feeling grumpy tonight.
I do feel better after puttering in the garden. Dirt under the nails do make you forget the days frustrations and it is relaxing.
I need my glass of tea and seed catalog.

I have felt like yuck this week. Gotta love North Texas allergy season, and this year has been the worst. Pass the tissue, please!!
I went to the doctor yesterday and new drugs for this mess and now I do feel better. This is hard since I work outside most of the time. I love working outside and I guess I will just have to up with this till the hot summer.
GG seems to be immune from this and is good of reminding me to blow my nose and to to take my pill. Yes dear, I will. "snort, snarfle"
Everything is going good in the garden, but zucchini leaves are yellow. It is good soil, but it has me scratching my head. I will have to read up on this. GG says that Neem will help. It won't hurt.
Well it time to get back to work and then lodge tonight.
Be good at something then you won't be bored.

Weelll it is past quitting time :30 and can't be any happier. Today the sun was out and it nice and warm. There is no better way to start the weekend.
I have been watching all the news reports on Boston and Texas. It is interesting the reaction s for everyone perspective on these two stories. Everybody has banded together to donate supplies for West, TX to the point the poor town is overflowing with stuff. And the respect and honors given to the fallen is incredible.
Then the flip side in Boston, the city was in lock down to hunt down the second bombing suspect. I have read and seen reports and blogs that were not positive with the steps the state and city took to capture a highly dangerous person. They were caloing it martial law or poking at the fact they have strict gun laws. I don't get it. I will admit the media was outwardly peeing themselves with all the action and displays of force. But they caught the kid and that is what matters.
Time to start the weekend chores and catch a stinkin' squirrel that is causing havoc.

GG and I are taking time to keep those in West, TX and Boston in our prayers for the losses and those who are hurting.
It makes me proud of those who stopped and RAN to the aid and relief of so a tragic times as these. Watching and reading the back of forth of all the rhetoric, we can still come together and be the wonderful people we can be.
My hat is off to all the first responders and volunteers that put themselves out there to help and recover.

I've been readying trophies for a car show BFF and I are running next month.
Inventorying them, cleaning them up and making a list for our trophy guy of the needs of each trophy.
That took a few hours alone!
They are all tidied, organized and ready to go to him now. I should have them all back by next week, in time for the show on May 4th.
BFF and I have a car show business, and this is the second to last show we will most likely do this year. She has finally found a job, and I will soon be travelling every week to Colorado, so we will not have the time to dedicate to car shows like we did last year.
When we did have the time, we usually did a show every other week.
It can be brutal during the hot summer, so I have to admit that I am a bit happy to not have to sit for hours outside, baking in the heat.
In other news, I am still waiting for my release date from my current position. That should all be settled by Tuesday, as my current manager has a call with my new manager. According to him they want me yesterday, so I imagine once everything is in place, I will be traveling asap.
While I do look forward to seeing new places, this momma does not want to leave all of her babies.
Little dog won't have a warm lap to sleep on all day, and big dog won't have company during the day.
JW assures me that all the flying monkeys will be taken care of. But as I pointed out to him, it won't be me doing it, so I wont be satisfied! HA
JW is currently at Grandma H's, mowing her lawn.
We played a bit of hooky today, staying home from church. We had an event that we went to yesterday, and we were wiped out by the time we got home. It was fun though, so I can't complain.
He manged to get our lawn mowed yesterday and tended to my bird feeders. And he was kind enough to refill the bird bath for me today also.
The garden is coming along nicely. JW thinks our okra may not make it though.
He did point out that the tomatoes do have some babies on them, so that makes me happy!
Laundry awaits me now. I dont look forward to it, but we all enjoy clean clothes.
Have a good rest of the weekend!
