From Tomatoes to Flowers and From Pantry to Bears
Went out on mine and Dakotas walkabout
this morning and wanted to pick
my tomatoes. I waited one day too long to
pick, something else decided to take a bite
out of one.
So now I am down to two.
Sitting out on the deck this morning,
nice 74 degrees with a cool breeze and
I look out to the yard and see this.
I have been watching it starting to bloom and
here it is.
It took days.
Days that it should not take a
normal person to do.
But the pantry is clean.
When there were kids here and I cooked
everyday, those shelves were always full.
I actually took a bunch of canned beans to
the food pantry the other day. Since my surgery
eating them just about does me in.
I bloat up and hurt too bad to enjoy beans
When you step into the pantry and look
to the right, there is another opening. This
opens to what used to be the storage area
off the deck that I had closed up and opened
from here so I could have more storage
To the left is a shelve that was hanging in the
storage area before, I have it sitting on the
ground with spray paints and stuff on it.
The bins on the back was where the door
used to be is full of Christmas stuff.
To the right of that in the gray bin are
my door decorations for each holiday
or event. Under that is Halloween.
Next to that, cans of unused paint.
What you don't see is above the shelving
unit is my peg board with my tools hanging
My friend Debbie and another friend who
recently lost her husband went to the
Smoky Mountains - a 4 hour drive from
home. I warned Debbie to not stop and play
with bears since they are having a big issue
up there right now with the bear just walking
right into the town of Gatlinburg.
Speaking of that this is what happens if
you are careful.
That is when I was with cousins in Gatlinburg in
Sept. 2015. I was loading up to leave, left the
truck open and this is the site that was
waiting for me when I came back out!
No food in the truck but there was in the
back seat so I am guessing Smoky here
could smell that and was looking for it.
For fun today.....
what would your name be?
Mine is Golden Shore Slacker....
So here is hoping you have an amazing day.
