Tootles

It is a beautiful day, I am home until the gathering tonight, so I am going to be outside until I have to come in and make meatloaf for the gathering tonight.


Yesterday ended the carb loading diet, with thirteen test tubes of blood, and a horrible amount of stuff that tasted like drinking unreconsituted Hawaiian punch concentrate. Thirteen test tubes, five sticks total , sitting around for two hours. Fun time in River City. Waiting for test results, their coming in slowly. So I am going to quit coming back inside and checking if they are in.

So now I am really going out and staying out until we leave for gathering. Bet took my banner picture just a few minutes ago, she said she took it for me. It is from the garden under the big cherry tree down by the pond at the south side of the house. The garden that I keep checking on for blooms is the north garden where I have been doing some work, it is next to the driveway so I slow down to look at it when I come and go. Which I did yesterday, and no one down there is blooming.

So I am out my door to do a few things I have to do and then down to Cherry Tree Hill to do some weeding and such so that I can be close to my first spring bulb blooms and enjoy them.

So tootles, I may not be back 'round till tomorrow or later. I've not gone and done anything silly like hop in the car for a aimless road trip, just out working my hinney off and happy to do so.

Dear Friend, Dear Reader, I desire that we all soak in what God has given us today. His is an offering of many riches, not by the standards of the world, for what the world has to offer is to our detriment, He offers only what is good for us, our eternal soul. May peace wash over you in every situation you find yourself in.

Nice new header! And meatloaf is my favorite - with mashed potatoes & gravy and corn. Yum! It always takes two weeks to get the results of blood work here :(

Susie said...

All that testing sounded terrible Lanny. Some good gardening therapy is what you need. Meatloaf? Love it!

Daisy said...

I hope you get good results from the tests, Lanny. I love the daffodils in your header. Yellow is my favorite color, so cheery. :)

Meat loaf! Yum. Have the test results come in? Are you normal? I am wondering if the doctors should check and see if your missing hiney might be contributing to your problems....hineys come in handy and if you're doing so much work it is disappearing , well, there just might be some serious ramifications Miss Lanny!

Hi Lanny, I am glad the testing is over with and I hope you will share with us what you learn. You remain in my prayers. Like Susie says, gardening is a great escape after a tough week - I hope you enjoy the peace and beauty of God's world while you are out today.

Nice Header.
Some times there is nothing better than ripping a weed out of the ground. Enjoy.

Fingers crossed - hope the results are good, Lanny.

Cherry Tree Hill sounds like a wonderful place.

It might be your spring, but it's our first week of autumn!
