There's alot going on right now in the world - sometimes it just seems easier to slip into thinking about the negative. Let's count our blessings in the ramblings section, and turn our minds to the good things in life. If something good happened to you today, share it here! From big blessings of a healthy recovery, to the small things like getting your first tomato in the garden. There's enough bad stuff out there right now; let's take time to just think about the good things.

For example, today, I'm really blessed by having a loving family and by getting a few work calls here lately.

I got all my tomato starts planted. But I forgot to plant the peppers, lol.

The red bud tree outside my kitchen window is blooming! And, I have a humming bird visiting it every day.

AND the apple trees are in full bloom! last year only 1/2 the buds survived to bloom.

So there are my 3 good things happening!
for the 4th, we finally got delivery of our Lazy-Boy furniture that we ordered 1 week before the Pandemic struck and shut everything down.

Fresh strawberries and yogurt. While waiting for mine to set fruit and ripen.... I picked up a package at store today. 2 berries filled half a bowl!

My home: enough land to raise a flock of chickens, and have a good sized garden.

My wonderful husband, who completes me. He is the tether to my helium balloon. He is the voice of reason for all projects. He is best friend, gentle, kind, possesses a keen sense of humor, and a man of God.

i have some sprouts from some peas i planted a 2nd time and was wondering if the seeds were any good at all. :) so that means of all the peas someone sent to me that i have plants up and growing. 12 new pea varieties to play with and sample and ...

the first planting was about a month ago and all but two of the groups i planted sprouted and are growing well. replanted the two more barren spots a week or so ago.

Such good news from everyone, and such gratitude for even the little things. Keep it coming! Please feel free to share any time.

Sprouts, haircuts, blooms, and positive videos are all wonderful things to think about- let's not get weighed down by all that's going on.

speaking of blooming the strawberry patch is going strong. hope the recent heat isn't too much for them, but so good to see the efforts of the past few years finally looking to be paying off:

I have always been thankful for my various farms. This year I'm hoping that this large garden plot will supply me and others. Even my animals. It's harder work than my jobs!

With the CV-19 stuff.....I'm almost retired by shutdowns, not own choice. Just want to make the most of it -- luckier than so many since I have always worked toward SS. Thus, not a huge adjustment for me -- except time at home is better. Have always lived with tight budgets, reuse, repurpose.

My primary shopping stores are "essential" so have been open -- TSC & Lowe's. :lol: It's a great life!
