I'm baaaaaaack!

Okay, Okay. I'm back. Thanks for missing me. I never knew I had so many fans. So for my fans....all 13 of you.....I'll be posting that blueberry buckle recipe this week and I'll get the desperate few folks that need linkage up on my sidebar and I'll tell you all what we've been up to. But for today you'll have to be pacified with a couple pictures.


Like this one. This is my ball of twine that I use to tie up my tomaters and cucumbers when they get out of control. I think I'm quite the inventive genius for storing it on top of my bean poles and slipping a knife in the middle so it's always handy when I need it. Please note that I was not the person that took it out of the protective plastic sleeve that it comes packaged in....so it doesn't get all wadded up and tangled.....no, that was not me. The person that did that is the same person that still asks questions like, "What plant is this?" after I've told him a dozen times before, "It's a cucumber." Let's just say I have to constantly remind myself that I am married to a city boy and not a farmer.

Remember when I told you about my neighbor's llama? Well, here he is....or she...I think it's a boy. He loves me. He like to suck on my fingers and smell the back of my neck which gives me the heebeejeebees. I wish I had his eyelashes, just look at those things. I would never have to wear mascara again.

Alrighty folks, that's all I've got for now. I'll be back tomorrow with some real meat and potaters stuff for you to fill your April Showers bellies. Oh, and I'm having some sort of weird alert problem with posting and reading comments on other sights, so if I seem quiet it's just because the mute button is stuck....I'm really trying to get in on all the conversations and hopefully I can get that fixed this week too.

Thank God your back April - I had no idea what to do with myself during the few minutes I usually spend reading your blog. Plus my kids were upset too as they also love to read Aunt April's blog. Glad you all are home safe.

Our Shop-Rite has blueberries on sale this week - 6 pts for $7.00 so I'm going to buy some today and hopefully make some blueberry buckle tomorrow. Welcome back.

My life can begin again.

Rechelle said...

Well - looky here STILL NO NEW POST!!! Hello?? Hello?? Sit you butt down and type girl. Tell that story about the mud fight we got into right before your piano lesson. Or how we used to fight about who would carry the french horn. Or how we used to fight about whose turn it was to watch for the bus. Or the scars we gave to each other from nail scratches. Or the "just go brush your teeth" story. Or about Thunder and how he loved me more. Or about Chester. Okay...no type!

I want to hear about the mud fight and the french horn fight. And who Thunder really loved more.
Please.

That has to be the best Llama portrait I have ever seen.

I would really like it if you & Rechelle would write on the same topic one day a week (or month) so we could get your stories from both perspectives (such as the mud fight).

My husband always used to talk about "his" dog Doc, the greatest dog on earth. One day I was talking to my husband's brother, Bob, and Bob mentioned "his" dog Doc, the greatest dog who ever lived. I unfortunately said, "Oh, I thought Doc was Rich's dog..." The two brothers (in their 70's mind you) then got into a huge yelling fight over whose dog it was.

A couple of years later I was telling this story to my sister-in-law, Nancy (Bob & Rich's sister) and her response was "Doc was MY dog."
