TIME WEATHERED OR WHAT

DSC_0364

The word this week is a great one for me.  I mean, heck, when it comes to describing weathered I could just put my picture out there (don’t worry I won’t, don’t want to scare the regulars) but it would be the epitome of the description.  But it brings a question to my mind.  “Does weathered mean by years or could it be by cold or heat or etc.?”

So far this year we have had the coldest weather we’ve had in several years and it definitely has taken its toll on my vegetable garden, flowers and fruit trees.  The papaya trees were loaded with fruit.  I suppose it only zapped the leaves on the trees and the roots are safe (positive thinking babe.)  If it did get the roots as well I will just replant.  I’m almost sure all I need to do to the banana trees is just cut them back to the ground and they will sprout new babies.  But it is too cold to get out there and mess with anything right now.

Sooo… I should be working on the rewrites of the two novels I have perking on the back burner.  Maybe perking is not the right word because I haven’t worked on them in weeks.  Oh yes, I know I should and now that it is too cold to work in the garden it is a perfect time to write.  Do I have writer’s block?  No, I’m just plain old LAZY, can’t lie about it.  I even know the finish and everything; just need a good kick in the butt to get moving.  So with that said I better get busy.

Thanks for stopping by please come back soon.

STUBBORN AS A MULE

CSC_0053 A

Have you ever heard the saying “Stubborn as a mule?”  Maybe it is just heard in the south but I’ve heard it a million times and mostly describing me.  So this week I will show you some of my stubbornness with this post.  Yeah…yeah I know it is supposed to be about a favorite photo from this year.  Well I simply can not find a favorite.  I pretty much like all of my pictures.  If I don’t like them it is so easy to hit the delete button.  So yes, I guess I am stubborn.  I think you sort of have to be if you are an author.  If you want to publish novels you must have enough faith in your work to stick with it no matter what.  Right?

I have too many interest I guess and I have neglected my writing for time spent in my garden.  Of course I love both and I also love photography and taking walks.  So, like I said maybe too many interest.

I have two novels waiting for me to finish and what’s sad I know the finish if I would just sit my butt down and work at the computer.  I should be digging in the dirt of my manuscripts  instead of outside digging in the dirt literally.  They are screaming to be finished and for me to move on to others.  Yes there are others…well other ideas that are stewing on the back burner.

Have you decided to make a new years resolution?  I will do my usual lose weight, eat healthier and get more exercise.  These are three that a lot of people make every year and like me they start off strong but a nice piece of cake or chocolate temps and all the good intentions are blown away like dust in a wind storm.  This year I will also add “finish the novels I have started and start sending them to publishers.”   Yes, I will most definitely have to be as stubborn as a mule to do it but I plan to give it the all American try.

CSC_0054A

Please let me know if you make resolutions and if you succeed.  I will keep you posted on mine.  Some way I will try to incorporate all of my hobbies as well as succeed as an author.

Thank you for stopping by.  Happy New Year!!

GOOD MORNING GLORY

001

Morning Glories are temporary flowers but oh so pretty.  They usually only last a day but I look forward to going out in the early morning and seeing them in bloom.  It is a beautiful way to start the day.  This year I planted several colors but all that grew seem to be the blue.  Oh well, I’ll just be thankful for what I have.

My vegetables are doing well and I am so happy with them.  We should have fresh mustard for dinner tomorrow.  I wanted to have it tonight but I kept flagging around and I thought it was too late to gather some today.  I like to gather my greens early in the morning.

The collards, onions, radishes, broccoli, cabbage all are growing nicely.

DSC_0254          Last Friday we made cages for the tomatoes and we have several small tomatoes on the plants.

DSC_0244     And I predict we will be able to have lettuce from our garden in a couple more weeks.

DSC_0247

This is the first time I’ve tried to grow lettuce in containers.  I researched it and they say it can be done so we shall see.  All I can say is so good so far.

I also planted some red cabbage in containers last week; just to try, I never grew red cabbage before.

My hot peppers are doing great.  We really don’t eat them so I will pickle them and find someone who likes spicey.  They are pretty and fun to grow.  The sweet peppers had a nice sized pepper but some varmint decided he needed it more than I do.  I will put cayenne pepper on the plants and that should deter him.  Those peppers are for my grandson so the varmint does not know who he is fooling with.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you have a blessed day and will come back soon.

ELEMENT OF A MIDNIGHT BLOOMER

This beauty is said to only bloom at midnight.  A very dear friend of mine gave me a cutting of this plant and I as so thankful to her.  She warned me that it only bloomed late

CSC_0724at night.  So this year it is loaded with flowers and I just had to sneak out that at 4:30 this morning before I went for my morning walk and grab a peek.  I was so excited when I saw this wonderful flower.  Yes, of course I had to pick one of the blooms and take snapshots to share with y’all.

COQUINA BEACH

Coquina is our favorite Beach on the Gulf of Mexico in Florida.  We also love to visit the Atlantic on the East Coast of Florida.  On Coquina there isn’t many large shells but the beauty of the water makes up for the lack of shells.
