We left the house at 8 am and went right to Murfreesboro.  It takes an hour and a half to get there but it is the closest place for Norman to get the shot he needs in his eye and it is the only thing that can save his sight.  If there were some other way believe me he would take it but this shot saves the last eye he has.  His right eye has lost the central vision already and as long as this shot works he will go every month to six weeks and get it.  We stopped in McMinnville on the way home and got a piece of glass to fix the end table and a bale of peat moss toput on the blue berries for winter, then came right home.  We got home at 12:30 – tired and ready for dinner and a rest.  It always takes a lot out of him but tonight he is fine and glad he can watch the ball game.  After a rest Norman fixed the end table and I made 8 jars of grape jelly.  Tomorrow is a new day and we plan to pull the squash vines and weed that garden, put on horse manure, till it in and get it ready to leave for winter.  We are still getting four or five tomatoes a day so just enough to eat fresh and every third day I get a few green beans.  Those two with the squash gives us enough vegetables for a while before we have to go into the winter stores or buy some at the farmer’s market.  The heat is coming back but not quite as bad as before.  Have a great evening.

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.
