shelf


 I know this does not look like much... and its not, BUT  it is the wall behind the toilet.. there was a big wooden shelf there.... and last night about midnight it fell down!! yep.... with everything on it....  AND i was sitting right below it.  it could have brained me good! still don't know why it did not. and what a mess it was, took me 2 hrs to clean it up, glass even went into the bathtub.  I really should have taken a picture of the mess, but i didn't... just could not believe it fell .... when it did..... i had just gotten out of the shower, it could have done that when i was in there... Brian says this is the 2nd time it fell.... i don't remember that at all.. and we are not going to put it back up will finish the paint job, spackle the holes... Dad made it for me for when i was in the mobile home and needed storage of any sort and lots of it...

i had a couple of fruit jars filled with shells and sand from different places on the very top shelf, probably, more than likely that was the straw that broke... and those little shells and sand was ALL over, along with the broken glass of the jars...

We had thunder and lightening and pouring rain for about half an hour last night, cooled off for awhile and this morning the little plants we had put in the garden were all perky... maybe i am NOT giving them enough water..  i tend to over water and rot things.... but apparently am not over watering this time!!

Take Care and God Bless all, stay safe!!!

Nada


 Bought myself some flowers for myself! My niece always has fresh flowers in her house and it seems like a lovely thing to do for yourself.  Mine are still beautiful after a week!

We have had downright cold weather, rain even!!! and wind! Got the pick up  emptied of all the limbs i have picked up in the last couple months and the last of the leaves...Had to have the heat on even, not today tho as it seems as if it is warming... The grass has gotten really green after all of my fertilizing, spraying, mowing... the leaves in the back yard are out on the trees.... Have planted some tomato plants, zuchinni, lemon cucumber, lots of flowers, Brian put his peppers out... THEN we had to get all the sheets in the house to cover them up one night as it got below freezing!!!

Take Care All and God Bless

Careful


 Geez, what a morning!  Toilet would not flush so had to get the plunger and plunge, that is always fun...

THEN spilled whole cup of coffee all over myself whilst eating my avocado toast.... have a bad habit of just leaning the cup on my right leg, leaning against arm of the chair, when doing something that requires two hands.... well... today the toast crumbs were falling off the paper towel that i use under the toast, so had to adjust.. 1st place suppose i should actually use a plate... and should certainly put the cup on the window sill to my left.... and u know after changing clothes, putting everything in washer, i started to place cup in the same place!!! Really, my lesson not learned?   See... bad habit... BUT good thing is, that bathrobe absorbed ALL of that coffee and it did not drip down into the nether regions of the chair... thank heavens...


And my whirly-gig is whirling today!!! Cold and windy.. 46 outside... last night we put all my extra sheets over everything planted in our little garden... looked really weird, but  looks as if it worked...

Take Care and God Bless and take care out there   :)

Poppies

It was a beautiful day today .. it's 5:30 pm and 83 degrees... there were times during the day we had some wind, but all died down now.. Planted more flowers and tomatoes, lemon cucumber, zucchini .. watered some... made swiss steak for dinner... watching " A Radical Rebellion; the Transformation of the Republican Party on CNN  downright scary how we got to where we are today... and how on God's green earth it was allowed or just overlooked in a lack of information/knowledge/ caring...  and then i sit here on my little property and realize how lucky i am to be here where i am and even have a house i can call my own.  were i trying to get something now, would not be able to afford anything in Desch Co that is for sure.  And i don't live in the far east that appears to be  imploding as we sit here.. those poor people... and can that be resolved, after at least 2000 years?? i don't hardly think they would listen to what we have to say, we certainly don't have the history

enough, i have to stop watching CNN and continue cleaning my garage....

Take Care All and God Bless...  let's get out and smell nature/flowers.. maybe get some salt air... :)
