Gardening and Other Fun

May 21st, 2017

I have been spending a LOT of time working, exercising and getting my garden ready for the summer. I’ve been planting beautiful flowers and love seeing them begin to thrive.

Today, another trip to the garden center & I picked up two strawberry plants. I’ve never tried to grow strawberries- and these are both hybrids, so I’m looking forward to seeing if they do anything. I also grabbed some garlic chives- which smell absolutely amazing & can not wait for them to get large enough for me to actually use them.

In between that- I’m working on all the planning for a huge catering job I’m doing the first week of June. I’m excited about it, but at the same time, also a little nervous. As with most things- planning is everything.

Once I have that done- I’ll be able to concentrate more on the planning for my upcoming birthday trip- which I’m getting VERY excited about!

What’s happening with you?

Practice Makes Perfect

May 21st, 2017

Who else loves the sound of gibson acoustic guitar at guitarcenter.com? I spent some time a few nights ago listening to my neighbor play, and I have to say- he has made some massive improvements compared to the first days of their band coming together. I still haven’t got used to the late night practice once a month, which keeps some of us awake until at least one am, but since he always lets us know ahead of time- I really can’t complain. I make sure to turn the fan on high, which does help. I love seeing him thrive in his environment and continue to get better and better with each passing month.

Back in the Saddle

May 10th, 2017

I finally have my computer back from Toshiba and am slowly but surely using it again and getting everything reinstalled.    Because I have so many other irons in the fire, I’m finding that I haven’t spent a lot of time on the computer, although I probably should- to make sure it’s running properly.

They did end up  replacing the mother board, which went out, but since there were other things leading up to that moment, I’m not sure they were addressed or if those issues were also repaired during the great mother board replacement.

Either way- I now have my computer and at least I can begin to catch up on a few things using it.

Slowly but surely I’ll get the rest back on here and test it all out.

Life continues to move at a faster pace than I realize-    and I’m super excited that in less than two months, Samantha will be here and we will be going on a girls adventure together.   Before that-  I have a lot of SCC work to get done- including a lot of cakes and a catered lunch for around 28.  In fact, that’s what I actually turned the computer on for.   To find my menu in the cloud program, but first I need to install it.. Fingers crossed it’s still there.

As you can see- I was seduced by the lure of the blog.   I have so much to say, but more later.   In the meantime-  Work calls.
