Signs, Signs: Compost Collector

an earth-friendly Christmas gift
from my two oldest granddaughters

They knew that I would appreciate this kind of gift 
because when I taught I had a worm farm in my classroom.  
Then, at the end of each school year, 
I added the soil to the barrels 
in which I grew tomatoes and flowers. 
thank you, dear ones!

Good Morning Nonnie,
What a thoughtful gift. I use one of those gallon plastic ice cream buckets from the grocery store. When people visit they are always asking me, what's in that?
Not enough people compost.
I love your January 20th post . . . it conjured up memories and made me hungry :)
I'm a retire activity director, just enjoying my extra time and filling it with pleasurable pastimes.
Your newest follwer, Connie
P.S. please come visit, I'm having a Give-A-Way at the moment and would love to have you put your name in the hat :)

Pondering about My Blog

I've been through quite a bit these past months that I haven't posted. 
First, packing and moving and then unpacking
. The first step of unpacking was my taking down boxes that were five and six boxes high. 
About two weeks after I’d moved and was in the midst of unpacking, I developed horrendous pain in my ribs. I slathered on my gel I use to alleviate Fibromyalgia pain. Realizing that even that was not helping. Trying to make a long story short- Asked for pain pillsNo help; asked for another kindDoctor wanted to see meWent in- he didn’t understand why I was still in painSent me to get x-raysDiagnosis: compressed fracture in my 9th vertebraCause: osteporosisNow on meds for that I’ve discovered that anytime I overdo, pain comes back, not quite full-blown, but enough that I must stop doing whatever I’m doing. That includes sitting at my computer writing. I wanted to bring my friends up-to-date; I’m pondering whether I should stop blogging altogether or do it only occasionally. Thank…

Organic and Fresh Salad

The beans seen above and layered on my salad below are grown by my granddaughter Candice.  The name of the beans is Tanya's Pink Pods. All veggies on her Earth Candy Acres farm are organically grown. The beans are delicious and tender, making a grand addition to my salad. Topping the veggies are dried cranberries, adding a bit of sweetness.
