I will tell you what, I don't have much to say and coming from me that says a lot! Seems like I can always chat about something, but this has been week two of a crazy schedule. Getting to know a new patient and his family, doing a couple re-evaluations and my general work week have put me a bit behind. I am starting to sound like a broken record am I not?
There was time to take a quick shot of the beautiful full moon in the evening.
And as it was setting early the next morning.
And look what I found while watering my container garden!!!! I have had a few tomatoes that were almost ripe but had big holes in them because of a visiting caterpillar. I was not happy. So I picked these to ripen on my windowsill in hopes they won't be in anyone's lunch but mine.
Look at my crop! These are all from the 1/3 of a plant I have left after the great stem fungus episode that killed off 1 and 2/3 of my plants.
The only thing prettier than a flower in the sun is a flower after a rain shower. No rain here so you will have to be content with the intense sun.
The two suet yarn holders are swinging in my tree. Seems like they are both full of yarn bits and that no birds have taken me up on my offer to use them as nesting material. I still have hope that they will find their way to a nest in need. If not they look beautiful in my tree.
I have been bribing myself with grain sweetened chocolate chips to get my paperwork done. I have trying to be a bit more careful with what I put in my mouth as I had not had the time to get as much exercise as I need, and my belly and bottom are showing great signs of expanding. But sometimes at the end of a busy work week a bribe of chocolate is just what you need to get all you need to do, done.
This wonderful son of mine, my Teenager, is turning 18 tomorrow. I am so proud of him. He has turned into such a wonderful young man. He isn't into going out, or drinking, or any nonsense. He likes his close friends and going out to an early dinner with them. He is quiet and so funny. He is steady as a rock, and he has been through some difficult times and come out the other end as a strong, rock solid young man. He has embraced the roll of big brother, he is such a steady influence with Little Buddy. Last Friday we made the decision on which college he will attend. It was a big moment as he was accepted to several. He decided on Florida Atlantic University, clear across the state from us. It is a nice size school, and a beautiful campus located near the Atlantic Ocean. I know he will have a great time, especially if he jumps in and gets involved, which will be a bit daunting to this quiet boy of mine. I have faith he will blossom and really come into his own. But of course with signing up there comes the reality of him going away in just a few, short months. I am not ready, nor will I be, so watch out for my sobbing and carrying on as the date gets near.
He graduates from high school in less than a month, but does not want a party or any fuss. Not even for his birthday! Gosh I could just cry thinking of him leaving. Now that he is 18 I think he might need a name change, I mean he is still a teenager, but that sounds so young. So maybe I will call him Mr. 18 from now on.
There has been a little time for crocheting in the evenings. I am enjoying this Jamie pattern by Vicki Chan so much. I got a bit messed up on the row that divides the front, back, and arms and moves into the lace pattern. If I had just read the directions right it would have been simple, but I had to make about a two hour ordeal of it because I can't read. All is going well now and this should be finished by this weekend. This is going to my niece in Chicago if it turns out okay. I think she will like it.
For someone who had nothing to say I have sure rattled on long enough. Have a great weekend.
