The last of my garden flowers~!

Had to fix snack rabbit's head today.. When Ben was here last time he put the head on too hard and it broke.. I bought some Quick Grip Glue and now I have it all back together.. The snack rabbit hold treats for Ben . He loves it and goes to the snack rabbit first thing when he gets out of the car. I bought this rabbit cookie jar at a garage sale for 25 cents. HE loves it~!




My garden is nearing the end of a great summer. Fall is here and there are many signs that it's here until next Spring. It's 62 degrees right now and very nice outside. It looks like it could rain, but I think it's just going to be a cloudy day... I took the screens off my kitchen window, living room windows and this room where my computer is. Without screens it just brightens up the room. I remembered to mark them this year ~ so I can get them back in the right window next spring.. I'm sure it will make it easier to put them back on .


Today at church our Pastor's sermon was on being a submissive wife.. Yikes~! I don't like that thought. Sharing our roles of husband and wife is more to my liking. We will be married 50 years in Feb. 11. So far sharing has worked...

My friend this morning told me her husband just found out he has Type 2 diabetes.. Dave and I both have it and at first it's really hard to admit let alone want to go along with what you have to eat and check your blood sugar level daily. But it's something that goes along with diabetes. I gave her some of my cook books, and litature.. It's something one has to take serious and do what it says. Walking 30 minutes a day helps tremendously, keeping your weight down is another. So this year, so far, I have lost 25 pounds. Plan on losing another 10... Get to 160...that would be nice. I was at 192..pounds. Being a lover of chocolate I had many changes to do..no more fried foods, no potatoes, lima beans, peas, corn,carrots,raisens,to name a few. and chocolate? I can have dark chocolate which I love... Thanks to Dove candies they have dark chocolate... Sometimes I carry them around and give them to people who have done a good job. Like the cashier that checks out your groceries. the mailperson, a waitress ~the list goes on. I call it giving them a Dove Award>> They all are surprised and love it~!
Time for my Sunday afternoon nap~! Have a great Sunday ~! Ta Ta For Now.....




Love this flower. Not sure what it is, but it's beautiful....the hummingbirds liked it a lot...

Beautiful Sedum in your garden...they are gigantica! The Hummer's favorite may be "Wishbone." The flowers in fall seem to put on one last show for the gardener...the African Daisy you gifted me years ago are doing just that out in the garden with the pink zinnias. A large green spider has been guarding a large egg bundle for several weeks now...we call her "Mrs. Green."

I love the idea of a snack rabbit. My little one would love it. I hope to be out of diapers soon.
