Curly top

I just lost 3 tomato plants to curly top virus, my lovely Cherokee Purples and a Patio.  I had to bite my lip and rip them from the soil.  I will be shopping for more plants next week.  Other than that I think this garden season is going well

men in kilts

I have decided that men in kilts are very attractive.  I could say "sexy" but that would make me sexist.  It's almost as if putting on the kilt changes their attitude.  Needless to say, I attended a Scottish flavored wedding last weekend.  Not only were the groomsmen all in kilts and the groom but there were other guests in their clan attire as well.  After the ceremony every kilted man pulled a bottle from within their suit jacket as if by magic.
I understand that the dancing lasted well into the night.  The girls and I left around 9 pm.  I think we will attend the Scottish games this year.

Hey there

It's been a long while since I have posted.  Must I say that I have been very busy?  In a nutshell, I joined Facebook and then deleted it completely, talk about addicting.  Put in a completely new garden and am now in the second year for it and taken sewing back up.  I sewed professionally while the kids were little and then for a little while during Erin's high school years.  Relearning how to thread my serger was a real challenge.  To make it even more daunting is the fact that it is a 5 thread quantum lock with differential settings from the late 90's.  It took me 3 days and I had to download the manual from the Singer website but I finally got it right.  All this to sew a flower girl dress for my granddaughter Brigid.  Now Erin wants a dress and has started finding other odd things to fix.  I guess I better think about re doing the spare bedroom into a workspace.
