I'm Upset

Category: Flowers and Vegetables | Posted: Mon Feb 19, 2007 2:03 am

I started my Sunset Hibiscus seeds, had a really good germination rate going, about 75%, and guess what, they dampened off. I am so upset. I used peat pellet, have never had a problem with them and I would think they would be sterilized. I did not over water them and they had excellent air circulation. Now I have 2 seedlings left, with maybe 2 or 3 more peeking through. I have a few seeds left, but I think I will save them and start over in a couple of weeks. AAAAAAAAARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!

Last Bubba Update

Category: Pets | Posted: Sun Feb 18, 2007 2:35 pm

Bubba ate a whole can of cat food last night, so he is back to his normal self. He has two days of meds left and his eyes are still a little fa-di-ka, (yucky), but not bad. He insist on going out, so we let him, as he has no congestion. Now the problem will be to get him to eating dry food again as he loves his canned stuff. He is a charming fellow and I am very thankful that he is doing better.

Bubba's Back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Category: Pets | Posted: Fri Feb 16, 2007 12:48 pm

Well the big guy is back to normal. He is eating like his old piggish self and he now protests his meds. He tried to bite me last night the bad boy. His nutrirional supplement is finished and he has 4 days of antibiotic pills left. I will be glad when he is finished those. His eyes are still a little runny but that's all. Thanks for everyone's concern.

PM Bubba Update

Category: Pets | Posted: Wed Feb 14, 2007 3:02 am

Bubba if feeling much better. He is eating more, has had his second dose of meds. We let him out for about 5 minutes, just long enough to potty. He came in and got on back of the sofa, preened a little and is now sleeping with is strippety tail slowly swishing. I feel all better knowing that he feels better.

For those of you who do not know, we raised Bubba cat on a bottle from 2 weeks old. His mom was a feral who brought us the litter of 3. We raised them all and kept Bubba.

Zuppa Toscana

Category: Cooking | Posted: Mon Feb 12, 2007 7:58 pm

OLIVE GARDEN ZUPPA TOSCANA

1 lb ground Italian sausage
1½ tsp crushed red peppers
1 large diced white onion
4 tbsp bacon pieces
2 tsp garlic puree
10 cups water
5 cubes of chicken bouillon
1 cup heavy cream
1 lb sliced russet potatoes, or about 3 large potatoes
¼ of a bunch of kale

Sautee Italian sausage and crushed red pepper in pot. Drain excess fat, refrigerate while you prepare other ingredients. In the same pan, sautee bacon, onions and garlic for approxiamtly 15 mins. or until the onions are soft. Mix together the chicken bouillon and water, then add it to the onions, bacon and garlic. Cook until boilin Add potatoes and cook until soft, about half an hour. Add heavy cream and cook until thoughouly heated. Stir in the sausage. Add kale just before serving. Delicious!

Unless you like your food really spicy omit the crushed red pepper, or cut down on it. I used a teaspoon and it was too hot for Sarah and I could really tell it was in there. Next time I will only use a little less than a half teaspoon, for the flavor not the heat.

Bubba Update

Category: Pets | Posted: Mon Feb 12, 2007 7:52 pm

Our Bubba woke up this morning feeling better. One eye was clear and he ate better this morning. He also drank some water. He wanted out, but I vetoed that. So he is in the shower sleeping. We are going to hold off on the vet and see how he is in the morning. I don't think it is life threating. Cats do get an upper respiratory thing that is fatal and that's what I was worried about. But he would not be improving if that is what it is.

My Sunday Off

Category: Family and Everyday Life | Posted: Mon Feb 12, 2007 5:21 am

I have every Sunday off, but have been working them for the overtime. I was very tired today so I stayed home, and will do the same tomorrow, although my boss wants me to go in. Bubba, our big cat we raised on a bottle, is sick and has to go to the vet tomorrow. After church today Richard and I went to Sonic for lunch. We wanted to go to the flea market but had too much to do at home. We got back and watched the Victory Garden, then I marinated and injected the chicken for supper. We went outside and started working on weeding a flower bed. Got most of it done, but it was still wet. Tomorrow I am going to dig the cannas out bc they are taking over. I have to move some of the daylilies around and plant my gladioli. I will then fill in with some of the annual seed I am starting. I have so much to do in the yard, I think I have too much and may need to cut back or start mulching heavier. The weeds are so bad here. I have wild strawberry that came from somewhere over the winter and has taken over one end of a flower bed. It is really thick. Oh well, enough ramblings for today.

Further Charges Filed

Category: Special Blogs | Posted: Sun Feb 11, 2007 5:00 am

Mark Lewis has been charged with second degree murder. This has resulted from forensic evidence found in his truck. If I am right, he cannot be sentenced to more than 40 years for second degree murder. Please correct me if I am wrong, I think he deserves much more.

Kaitlin Update

Category: Special Blogs | Posted: Sat Feb 10, 2007 2:30 pm

Kaitlin's funeral was yesterday. I did not attend. The community really came out and supported her mom. We were at the services the night before. The news reported over 1600 people attended. There was over 1000 at the services yesterday.

Please continue to pray for her Mom, family and friends. Now the realization will set in.

State law required that bond be set for Mark Lewis. The judge set it at $500,000. Lewis' lawyer said that Lewis does not think he will be in danger if he is let out of jail. A high school senior who attended the hearing summed it up, "Tensions are running high in French Settlement right now, if he gets out he ain't gonna make it."

Some of the evidence has been sent to a private lab for testing. State police lab is so backed up even with a priority it will take them 3 weeks to get the evidence tested. The private lab should have something back the beginning of next week. I will keep y'all posted through blog entries.

I Am So Pis, Oops I Mean Mad

Category: Family and Everyday Life | Posted: Sat Feb 10, 2007 4:00 am

Sorry, I really hate that word. A couple of days ago a lady I work with, who lives in French Settlement also, stopped at the local store. Inside was a box of little puppies with a free puppies sign, the cashier had found them in front of the store that morning when she opened up.

Well tonight we went to pic DD #1 up at the school gym. She had to work concessions for the basketball game. By the gym door, a box of seven puppies with a free puppies sign on it. I am very upset about this. I called a friend just now that was at the game, they took one and there was 3 left when she went home. Richard is going to ride up there to make sure they all got taken.

I sure would like to find the person doing this and kick their a.... up into their shoulder blades.
