Another very hot day, well into the 90’s here which means it was over 100 in Nashville.  Before breakfast, that is before it got too hot, I picked beans.  They are not growing as well as they did at first because of the heat but they are still alive and giveing us enough to eat.  Then after breakfast we picked the blueberries again.  We got over a quart so made 2 1/2 pints of blueberry sauce.  Patty was the one who asked us to make some blueberry sauce for her oatmeal, I had never thought of that and I am so glad we listened to her, it is so good each morning on our oatmeal.  By then it was just too hot to do much outside.  I did stop feeding the hornets  today and by tonight most of them were gone.  I believe by the time the kids come the bees will all be back in the gardens and leave the porches to us.  This afternoon I went back over to Pay Pal and they finally let me take my bank information off their site and I took my credit card off and then closed my account.  They asked me why and I told them so we did leave with no hard feelings but I am at peace now and don’t have to worry about someone taking my information from them again.  If anyone steals my credit card information at least I will have only the credit card company to work with and not have my bank mixed up in the problem.  The credit card took care of it in one day, then investigated the problem which is how it should be.    I have another sweater almost done for Christmas, so I guess I need to start on some hats and mittens so everyone will have new hats and mittens for winter.    I did order some new cards so I can get my blog on the cards.  I got two sets one for my Spencer address and one for our Port St Lucie address.   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.
