Good COLD morning! Its in the 20s again this morning. I think the cold weather has finally decided to come to Georgia. I had a tomato, believe it or not, growing on the vines that I decided to leave since the weather had stayed so mild so late in the year. I had covered it with plastic the past two nights, but last night I went ahead and picked it. It is still so green, I dont know if it will ripen or not. It is about as big as a baseball. There were other smaller ones growing too but they are lost to the frost now. All the plants were frozen and died night before last. I really held on as long as I could to summer didn't I? I have to face facts now and settle in for the wintertime and try to enjoy it for what it is, a season.
I want to thank everyone for their comments and encouragement for Sherry. I want everyone to know that I love her no matter what. We have been friends for so long now. I think that it takes a special friendship to have so much time pass in between visits, but be able to pick up where we left off like it was yesterday. We all have things in our lives we aren't proud of. I know I do.
Shelby is getting some better now...still stuffy nosed but I think by Monday we will be ready to get back on track.
I have been looking over all those homeschool books I picked up. Wow, I hit the jackpot. There are a few in there that I really have no use for, but most of it is going to really be useful and keep me from having to spend so much money on books in the following years. I have enough History and Math to last us til she graduates! The Physics book looks interesting too. There is also a chemistry booklet that has the periodic table in it along with lots of information about all of the substances of the periodic table. I am just thrilled to have gotten these books off of Freecycle.
Now enough chatter, I better get a shower and head out. I have grocery shopping to do this morning and I want to get there before everyone else does so I can shop in peace.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day and I will see everyone tomorrow. I want to do an entry on Ember sometime this weekend. She was quite a hen, and we miss her terribly, but her story is very entertaining and makes for a good story and good memories. She was the next chicken we got, and I had her up until recently when that fox was coming around getting my smaller chickens. She was such a tough gal, Iknow she must have put up a fight, but I know the fox got her because we found a lot of her tail feathers right outside the fence on one corner of the property where she often slipped through and went galavanting outside the safety zone.
( I have fell down on the job of pictures lately, but I will try to get some new and fresh photos this weekend to add to my entries. I still have to take pictures of my new birds, so maybe that will be what I work on this weekend)
