  • We recently remodeled an upstairs bathroom. We replaced the floor, toilet, vanity, tub, lights. It was so much better. Within three weeks we noticed a leak from the kitchen ceiling, which is right below the new tub. The tub drain leaks.
    Just when we thought life was improving, wow, an even bigger problem than we had before. That is really a commentary on life isn’t it.
    We plant a vegetable or flower garden. Beautiful! But then wind and hail, rabbits and coons, weeds and disease seem bent on destroying what we have accomplished.

  • One of the great pleasures in life is being able to say, “I told you so.”
    I don’t get to say it often, but when I do, especially when I can say it to my husband, I do it with immense glee. I may even dance around and sing.
    Moms get to say I told you so a lot.
    Remember Ralphie’s mom in “A Christmas Story”? Ralphie kept asking for Red Ryder BB gun and his mom kept saying, “You’ll shoot your eye out.”

  • We harvested some fantastic looking “Red Candy Apple’ purple onions a few weeks ago and it is now time to start digging some ‘Yukon Gold’ potatoes and garlic over the weekend.
    I am so excited about the garden this year because it is performing so well. We need to wait another week or so to harvest the ‘Sterling’ and ‘Walla Walla’ onions because tops have yet to flop over; this allows them to store better.

    Summer’s heat and weather can take a toll on your flower garden. But with a little extra care, it is possible to bring it back to life for a few more weeks of vibrant color and texture.
    It’s always important to make sure annuals and perennials get plenty of water this time of year, especially in later summer. Annuals, in particular, will start to decline without an adequate supply of water to keep the ground moist.
