Cooking On

We got a good rain last night!  It blew and rained so hard I was glad I had kept my Birthday Plan inside.  Patty and Gina got me a beautiful Bromalard , it has a very large pink flower, if it had been outside in that storm there would be no more flower.  I don’t think I will put it outside at all.  When we go home for the summer I will take it with me and keep it inside there too, it is not too fond of much sun so a window would be best for this plant.  I will have to repot it this summer as it has a very large pup with it now.

Yesterday we went out to go to Lowes and found a Save-A-Lot store.  We always get out meat at a Save-A-Lot store in TN so was glad to find the store and will shop there the rest of the winter.  Of course it doesn’t hurt that it is just a couple blocks from our home.

Norman is tiling the floor in the master closet.  We have decided to do just a lot of the small projects this year.  They are not as showy as the windows that we did last year but they are important to make the villa look great.  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.
