This year

What you see, is what I get. That is my garden. Last year I had a volunteer pumpkin plant grow right outside my door. It produced a fine harvest and a great deal of delight watching it grow. This year, I actually planted a seed from one of the pumpkins that I was cutting up for the sheep last year. Lo, and behold, it came up. It is flowering now. I don't know if that is behind time, but I am happy to watch it grow. When I left home on the 14th, it had not started trailing, but it sure is now. I will just have to enjoy my one pumpkin plant until we have the time for a garden.

I am still on the road to recovery. I only take pain pills every six hours, and they do not leave me feeling drugged. They just take the strong pain away. I don't have any doctor's appointments today. Hooray!!! I even watered the sheep just now. They were happy to see me, I think. (I guess we just like to think that, but it makes me feel good.)

Thanks to Nancy K. and Michelle M. for your kind thoughts.

It is amazing. When you think about what an incredibly serious, life-threatening accident you were involved in, less than a week ago ~ and here you are, taking pictures of your pumpkin plant and watering your sheep, as if nothing had ever happened! OK ~ with a little help from pain meds, but STILL! It's a miracle you're even ALIVE ~ much less going on with your normal daily activities.

I am SO glad that you are....
