gardening is my stress reliever!!


things have changed alot in my life

Category: misc. rambling | Posted: Wed Jan 27, 2010 1:29 am

Things in my life are a lot different than they were when I was last on the Stew.
We found out John has diabetes. It has taken a lot of getting used to watching carbs and being on a sugar-free diet. The good side...Hubby and I have both lost about 40 pounds. We feel so much better and have so much more energy.
I haven't had a garden in a couple of years and I look so forward to growing and eating fresh veggies!! They are so expensive to buy at the grocery store. I no longer crave junk food. I now crave fresh veggies and try to cook as health as I can. A year ago I would have said "Oh there is nothing better than a big greasy slice of pizza". Now I don't think there is a better meal than a slice of salmon, wild rice and fresh veggies!! Yummy :)
My sons are all almost grown. My youngest Alan is 18 and a senior in high school this year. In just a short 4 months he will be graduating and going on to college. My middle Brandon is 20 and works with his dad at the power plant in Jewett. Because of personal reasons I no longer have any contact with my oldest son or anything that pertains to him. It's a sad situation but it is for the best. Maybe one day he will straighten up his life and be a productive member of society. Until then I can only pray for him! For now I focus my attention on my two sons who are great young men!!
Ok that's a little more than I intended to throw on you guys...sorry!
Another thing in my life that has changed is my pets. I still have Callie my cat and my two parrots but I no longer have Bailey, Duke, Stachie or Bobby Ray Possum. They have all passed away. They are missed very much and I guess I will always miss them just like I do Bert and Bebe. Our newest furry babies are one big rough and rowdy Chesapeake Bay Retriever named Xanadu Jokers Are Wild...Joker for short and we have a little Dachshund named Waylon. I call him Way-Way but Hubby calls him Muttley!! :)
My computer is being a pain and for some reason won't let me upload photos but as soon as I figure out the problem I will add photos of all my babies. I may transfer my pics for my laptop to my desktop and see if I can get them on that way...at least until we solve the problem.
Well I guess that is all for my blog today. I know y'all are just rearing to hear more of my boring life!!! LOL :)

I'm back!

I know the newer members will not know me but I'm sure the older members will. I'm glendann's niece. It's been a while since I've been on the Stew. I had a lot of personal issues that I was dealing with. Things are better or I should say I've learned to accepts things easier than I did in the past and it's time for me to get onto things I enjoy. I love gardening and in the past I used it as my get away. I have missed my garden and I'm going to start fresh this Spring. I've scattered my peony poppy seeds and see them popping up everywhere! I'm so excited to get a fresh start!! :) I look forward to catching up with all my old friends I've made and getting to know new friends!!!

The return of the Huckleberry Hounds

Category: misc. rambling | Posted: Tue Oct 09, 2007 4:29 pm

Some of you may remember this story from before I restarted my blog. For the new members and to refresh the memories of the older members I'll retell the story of the Huckleberry Hounds.
Here's the pic of the hounds:

Sadly Bert is not a member any longer. I sure do miss that boy! :(
Ok now here is the story of the Huckleberry Hounds:
When we were clearing our property to have our house moved in we found a huckleberry tree among the grown up brush. I love huckleberries! We decided the tree would definitely stay. A few years ago I noticed our dogs out by the tree scrounging around. I walked out to the tree and realized they were eating the ripe huckleberries that had fallen to the ground!:) It's the funniest thing to watch them, so that is how they received the name of the Huckleberry Hounds!:)I go out and pick handfuls and feed them to my dogs and they love it. This year I had to clear around the tree because when we mowed we would leave some of the growth around the tree for bunnies and birds to hide in but this year I cleared all that out because it had gotten way out of hand. With all of it cleared out the dogs have plenty of room this year to enjoy the berries. They are in hog heaven,ahem... I mean doggie heaven! LOL
