So I guess I could stick a candle in a brownie, right? And later this evening she will be having friends over to hang out around the pool in the back yard.
I hope everyone has a great day!!!
Happy Birthday to your daughter!

Good afternoon, MMC!

I hope this finds everyone well. I missed all of you!

Tomorrow someone is coming to check into the phone problems here - finally! The outdoor cats are well and Palmer is, well, she is Palmer, still very much on edge all the time. The garden is doing very well - the tomato plants are taller than me and loaded with blossoms and tomatoes. Bumble bees are bumbling about in there every day - such a happy sound! I have harvested some kale and a few small zucchini so far - yummy! The wild black cap raspberries are ripening - three quart bags full so far. Since I have to stay home tomorrow for the service call on the phone, I intend to make preserves. I have never made that kind before so it will be an interesting morning! I have mint drying in bunches and have already dried a jar full of lemon balm and one of catnip. I have a plate full of blackberry leaves drying, too - makes a yummy tea! No one has checked for nor have I seen/heard the unwanted visitor upstairs. The animal control officer I talked to assured me that there was nothing to worry about and that the critter would find a way out if there was no food source for it - there isn't, so hopefully it is gone. It is weird - the whole sighting seems rather surreal. The good news is that I can actually be in the house without having any lights on now, which is great for the electric bill! I still won't go upstairs, though.

Be safe and MERRY!!!

I was just walking around the neighborhood and had to smile when I saw that one house has a Santa on their front door! I suspect I have found another Christmas fanatic!
