At the end of last week, I looked outside one afternoon and saw Sasha. She is our blue tick heeler that is usually on a leash in our back yard. She has a nice big area/long chain. I won’t go into all the reasons why it is necessary for her to be on a leash; it is not our preference but what is necessary. At any rate, when I looked out front, I saw her . . . this should not be.
She must have been loose for a while because she drank most all of the cats’ water that was on the porch. This makes me think she did quite a bit of running around before arriving on the porch. She is a strong dog. If Sasha doesn’t want to go back to her area, she doesn’t.
This is the breakfast Tiffany and I had yesterday. It is really delicious banana crepes with chocolate sauce. Yummo!!! (THM Cookbook pg 267)
I noticed that my narcissus flowers bloomed this week too.
My Bradford Pear trees are blooming nicely as well.
The peach tree is blossoming too! I’m so excited! There are no where as many blossoms as last year but we ended up with nary a peach because of a late frost or two. But that is actually okay because it seems I’ve heard that you should actually pluck the first blossoms to enable the tree to focus on its roots instead of putting out fruit. So I’m thinking that the few blossoms we have is good; it’s producing what it can provide without sacrifice.
Then we saw the plum trees are blossoming too.
This little tree, that is about four years old, is a slow grower. But it has LOTS of blossoms on it’s little twigs. We have another one that is younger but much larger and it too has blossoms, although not as concentrated as these.
We had a good visit with my sister and her girls this week too. It is always nice to get to spend some time talking with her about what is going on in her life and hear about her homeschooling. I try to encourage her the best I can.
We have birthdays to celebrate this Sunday with my family. My baby sister and Sean’s birthdays are within two weeks of each other, so we will celebrate both this Sunday, which means I get to see Brian, Lauren, and Liam!!! Yay! My little grandson is not quite so little any more. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone. I’ll be making a chocolate cake for Sean and the rest of us sugar free THMers (Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle eaters).
Well, I’ve rambled enough for today.
Until next time, God bless,
