Ransom and I went daisy picking last evening. Here's the breakfast table.

It's funny. When Don walks with me, Ransom will go roaming off, playing in the woods. But when it's just me with him, he stays close, never getting more than 10 feet away. He's far from perfect, but his good points definitely outweigh the bad.

Flats of flowers are 60% off now. I stopped after work and picked up one flat. My mother always says you plant a row of flowers in the vegetable garden becauses it will attract the bees to pollenate more. I don't know if it's true, but I'm not tempting fate.

Seeds are coming up. Beans, carrots, pumpkins, ghourds, and cucumbers all have small leaves. You're suppose to plant two in each spot and thin up as they mature. Why do I always have trouble doing that? It's like killing a plant or something. I have the toughest time. Last year I didn't even do the two in a spot planting and consequently that year I had alot of holes in the garden, not as many came up. This year I'm trying to be objective and rationalize the plants willl grow bigger if I pick every other seedling. I worked on it this evening.

Don's still on night shift. I had a million things I wanted to get done, but I ran out of time. As the song goes,"There's always tomrrow..."

We've gotten a phone call and an email from Eric. He says he's having 'The Time of his Life'. Good for him.

Until tomorrow --- Live up today

Gratitudes:
1. Email - It makes the world a much smaller place.
2. Fresh vegetables for supper.
3. Bubble baths - a must.

Your vignette with the red pitcher full of daisies on that gorgeous table runner is stunning! My kind of "stuff"!
