Sunday Night Chit-Chat

My picture for the Sunday Night Chit-Chat is of hollyhocks that volunteered just outside the fenced garden/orchard area. Neighbors about 5 miles away have hollyhocks so a bird must have dropped the seed. When my hubby realized something was trying to grow there he ran a 1/4" tubing from the main drip line to the fledgling plant. After adding some fish fertilizer, this is what we got. The plant is now about 7 1/2 feet tall with lots of beautiful pink blossoms!

If this is your first time to visit on Sunday Night Chit-Chat night, here is how it works:  Carla at My 1/2 Dozen Daily posts the answers to her questions. Then anyone who has a mind to can post their answers to the same questions on their blog and then link back to Carla. I have been enjoying the Sunday Night Chit-Chat for several weeks now. Sooo, let's get started!

What am I...

Reading...Just started a new series by Jane Kirkpatrick called Kinship & Courage. The first book is called All Together in One Place. Jane Kirkpatrick does a tremendous amount of research on all of her historical novels. Many of them are written about places that are very close to where I live.

Watching...Just finished watching Cafe` with Jennifer Love Hewitt. Interesting movie.

Listening to...The new air conditioner blowing in the other room. We have lived in this house for 17 years and finally got a small air conditioner:) Last summer we put up a third solar array so now have the power needed for some air conditioning:)

Cooking/baking...Too hot for baking or cooking today so we had corn on the cob and bagels with vegan cream cheese, avocado & tomato--yum!

Happy I accomplished...Oh my, where do I start?

  • Got the house cleaned and laundry done
  • Designed and uploaded new Blog Header--whoo hoo!!!
  • 4th of July went off without a hitch:)
  • Two years of maintaining a blog
  • Craft room and tote bag will have to wait till this week:( Maybe I was trying to bite off more than I could chew last week!

Looking forward to this week...Hubby's birthday is Wednesday and we are going to Portland! Mine is next Sunday and I am hoping to get a new chair that fits ME! Found a small leather swivel rocker recliner at Costco that should just fit the bill.

Thankful for today...A husband who can do and does just about everything! He does the gardening and maintains the yard, keeps the cars clean and in tip-top working order, does the grocery shopping, manages our household budget, AND put the new air conditioner in today! His next assignment, should he choose to accept, is put a ceiling fan in the living room:) How can I NOT be thankful for him!

Grab the book nearest you, turn to page 18, line 4 and type what it says... "thing straightened out," Mazy said, "If I'm going, I'm taking things that mat-"
