Big Ooops!

Dearest Readers,

I'm so sorry to have deserted you, today, but a lightning storm took out my modem last night and I've only--just now-- gotten back online.  Losing it (AGAIN!!) was my fault for unplugging the Uninterrupted Power Supply unit from the wall, allowing the strike to come in.  My faithful computer man, Frank Thompson arrived this afternoon to put everything to right (as he always does....who could want for more??  He makes house calls!!  Thank you, Frank, The Computer Man!  You are the best!).

So, I believe with all this discombobulation I'll close out the week.  Tomorrow we are getting a bull for Marigold, looking toward a calf sometime next April or May.  And, her half-sister, Honeysuckle,  will be moved in with her so she, too, can meet the handsome bull.  And I have tons of Roma beans to can tomorrow.  MM is going to the livestock auction.

Keri--thanks for stopping by!  And thank you so much for the compliment.  Barbara, Ruta, Beth, Julia, Vicki thank you for your sweet comments all week long and for sharing your lovely lives.

Have a relaxing weekend, everyone! 
See you Monday!


  1. Doesn't sound as though you have a relaxing weekend in store! Hope it's a good one, in any event!

  2. Yay for those lovely folks who still do house calls even when we are well out of town, they deserve the business for being so helpful!
    Have a lovely weekend, hope it is warmer than it is here where I've abandoned the garden to the cold and drizzle and am hugging the hearth instead :D

  3. Elora -- Hope your computer hangs in there. Funny that it becomes a body appendage that we can't live without. -- barbara

  4. Hi, Elora. So sorry about your modem---I lost them repeatedly, too, before I finally bought a UPS.

    Sounds like you had a busy weekend. All that hard work will certainly pay off this winter when you and MM are enjoying the fruits (and vegetables!) of your labor.
