Yesterday was another hot day so we worked on the computer trying to get our old camera to talk to our new computer but with no luck.  We went around to the gardens and took some pictures, then when we go into McMinnville on Wednesday we will get all of these onto a disc and can get a picture of the garden on my blog each day so you can see what I have been talking about.  The rest of the day was spent reading and knitting.  I am now working on Dyhana’s sweater.  I did get to water the gardens after supper, then mother nature improved on that by giving us a short shower just at bed time so the gardens should be happy today.  Morning temperture was 65 so it looks like we will have a great week.  The forcast is for tempertures to stay about 5 degrees lower, just perfect for growing and morning working.  Today is Sunday so Dad cleans house and I write letters to the family.  I have three people who write every week and a couple I hear from now and then so I try to answer each Sunday, it is the only way we can keep in  touch with the family.  If you like getting snail mail write to me and I”ll answer.  Have a great day.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
