I know you probably want to know what I’m hosting for a give – away, and that’s fine; but before discussing it, I want to document a few things since this is a journal of things going on here at the Livesay Homestead.
First off, Bulldog Man was downloading a few Microsoft updates to our computer. After downloading the updates, Bulldog Man went to go on the computer to use it when the computer failed. He was unable to get the computer to turn on properly. The computer would continue turning itself on and off. With every attempt to fix it turning up negative, we had no choice but to purchase another tower to add to our system. Now we’re stuck with learning Window 8.1; talk about so different than using the typical 7.0.
The cucumbers in my garden have started producing the right size cucumbers for making pickles. I pulled off 5 on the first round from the vine, and then another 7. Enough to start canning dill and bread and butter pickles. I was able to get 2 quarts of dill, along with 5 pints and 2 quarts of bread and butter jars. I used the quart size jars on the bread and butter pickles because I ran out of pint size jars.
Lupin flowers are starting to grow in the front garden beds, their flowers are purple; thanks to Sweet Kymber from Framboise Manor, she sent me those seeds.
More Zinnas are growing with unique colors, here’s one of my favorite.
I’m always looking up at the sky for beautiful clouds in shapes of characters. Here’s a turtle laying on his back, or maybe an alien baby. Your thoughts??
