I was thrilled this morning to find some tiny new shoots of several tomato plants. I seeded 30 cups, 4 got turned over or otherwise trashed, and about 3 of the 26 remaining are showing signs of life. This, to me, is the most fun part of gardening - those first new shoots determined to make it into the fresh air!
I just walked Rocky and was surprised to find out how cold it actually is. I was warm enough in my jacket, but wish I had worn a hat and above all, gloves! I think it's in the very low 50's with a good breeze.
I haven't decided what I'm going to do today, but I'm thinking seriously about cleaning out my hall closet.
Those of you who have been reading my blog may remember that last year, probably around the 1st of June, Rocky pulled on the leash and I fell in the middle of the street trying to restrain him. My wrist was broken and although they set the bone they didn't try to normalize my wrist, saying that would be "cosmetic surgery". How I wish I had walked out of that emergency room and found a doctor who would have given me a second opinion. I think one of my dear readers wrote me a note saying "11 months", which will be coming up in about 6 weeks or so. My wrist still aches at times and is very crooked, but I'm trying to use my left hand when possible so as to try to strengthen it. I do pretty well and it doesn't look too bad considering.
The sunshine this morning puts a happy glow on my entire day. I may as well get to that closet, and take occasional breaks to get out into the sunny backyard with Rocky.
The 2nd seedling is a bit difficult to make out, but it's there.
I also going to post a photo of myself after trimming my bangs. Please forgive me if I've already published this photo - I can't find where I did, so I am supposing I didn't. I hate publishing my picture because of the lines in my face which are so aging, but I can't roll the years back and I sure don't want them to end for a good long time yet. I left enough hair for Jeannie to trim and straighten it out!
