I took Maliyah and her school friends to the Pottery Co for some birthday fun they each painted something. I was so impressed with Millies choice of friends they were all very nice girls. I hope this continues the rest of her life!! Good job Millie. :0)

I planted my first garden ever and I am so excited!! According to the directions I should be able to harvest radishes in 22 days! lol..... My family has grown gardens my whole life, this is my first time not just being an observer but a participator. I've been behind a computer to long. Actually I lived in apartments way to long. Although once I threw some tomato seeds on the ground and it was like the Octo-mom moved in under my bedroom window! I had tomatoes every where, I ate them like apples my lips were stained red and I had canker soars for weeks!
It's raining cats and dogs right now so I have buckets under my gutter spouts in my effort to go green! I was inspired by earth day watching all the "green" ideas on HGTV. I just hope it does not cause my freshly dug garden to slide off the hill I put it on. Oh and I named my little veggie patch "patch of heaven" off of cartoon "Home on the Range". I'll paint a sign for it later. I'm on a budget as always so for five bucks I started it all from seed! I even planted pumpkins for the fall!!! The pictures are of every thing I have planted but not my actual harvest! I'll add pictures of my little patch of heaven when I upload them! Ta ta for now.

I work the graveyard shift tonight and a storm has just rolled in off the coast the wind is howling. The rain is blowing in under the door, I can hear dripping noises and the long gorse grass is whipping violently. Most people would be worried or scared, but I on the other hand, like storms as long as people are safe, I'm game! The Oregon coast is beautiful you are missing out if you have not visited yet!
