Positives in a crazy negative world...


We had a wedding in the extended family.  I went to the Sisters, OR ranch venue with My Sean.  We do well road trip'n together.  Sean even said on the way back that I was the best road trip'n partner cause there is fun but no drama with me, lol.
None of the social distancing, mask wearing stuff for us.  Hugs and kisses were plentiful all around.

A great time was had by all.

I'm going to be a GREAT grandma in December, thanks to granddaughter Ali and her hubby, Tyler.


It has been a while since we had a baby in the family, and I'm really looking forward to this new chapter.  They had the gender reveal the other day, and it's a girl!

The contractor removed my enclosed deck from the front of the hovel when they resided the unit.  I own the inside, the HOA owns the outside.  There will be landscaping done to the whole complex when all the units are completed.  In the mean time, I planted a garden in that mini space.


Tucked in around the zinnias, are a bell pepper, two tomatoes, a cucumber, a patty pan, a yellow squash, and a zucchini. There are bush beans, cilantro, & basil growing on the tiny back patio.   One zucchini plant, and I'm already freezing them for zucchini bread this winter. But mostly leaving them on neighbors doorsteps and running...

  1. Gardening in the wet side of the PNW is much easier than most places.

    1. There has been a bit of a learning curve, with my coming from clay soil and 105' summers.

  6. You can also wrap the zucchini in the gift wrap you've been saving and leave them in public areas.
    Just saying.
    We've been cutting ours into half inch thick planks and grilling them after a bit of olive oil and seasoning basting.
    Tasty and good texture.

    I'm not in the cilantro camp.

    The wedding looked like fun, and fun has been in somewhat short supply lately. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thanks for the gift wrap tip, I will have to give that a go.
      I don't have a bbq yet, actually not allowed in the complex. But I see a lot of them around, so... it's on my list to do. Mostly I saute three varieties of squash, tomatoes, & onions in butter. Not a big fan of cilantro either, except for mex dishes.

    1. Changes, Thank You, I'm glad you liked my post. It started out with a plethora of negative and then I figured we all get bombarded with negative stuff and I would much rather focus on the positives.

    1. Thanks Jim, Now if I could just get motivated to get the place painted, but I'm easily distracted by the "come go fishing with us" crew...
