Ramblings of a Crazy Lady

Sorry I couldn’t resist the title… LOL! Even though some many say that statement is very close to the truth. Any who, we are back into fall like weather. The heat has even made a reappearance. The Natural Gas company must love that. My bleeding hearts decided that they were more then ready for spring and bloomed. I think they came out of hibernation a bit early. The flowers this morning did not look good. I hope that its just a minor set back. I am to scared to go out back and look at the Pear tree. The other day it has such pretty blooms. I hope that we will get fruit off one of the trees this year.

I forgot to tell you but Grim and I trimmed the grape vines. Hopefully, we did a decent job and they still produce. But that is one of the those learning curve things. I won’t know how badly we did until late summer.

We had a nice storm roll through this afternoon. Thunder, Lightning, Hail and rain so hard you could barely see to drive across flooded roads. Yep, we were out picking up monsters in it. I can only imagine what they would have looked like had they had to walk in it… Soggy monsters! LOL!

My health food store started carrying Bubbies pickles and sauerkraut. I am thrilled with this, as now I don’t have to drive almost an hour away to get them. Yummmm! I think I sold every jar they had in the cooler tonight just hyping up the taste and benefits of the products!

When I was a kid, we were able to get a product called Tar salve. God that stuff stunk but would it heal a wound or draw out a sliver or infection. I wish I could find it now, just to have some on hand. I’ve seen some new products but they don’t look or smell the same.

Work on the pillow is coming along. I hope to have it done with pictures by the end of next week. I will going to see my uncle this weekend. So no time to crochet. I have even been working on a new coaster design. I like this one much better. I have 4 made and lots more to do.

I start therapy for my foot on Tuesday. I am really looking forward to getting started. The motrin and the ice seem to be helping. But I am hoping that by the time I am done I will be able to get back on the treadmill to get back to training to run a 5k.

Well, that’s enough rambling!

I too am worried about my fruit trees. We have had killing frosts in April.

Wish you the best on that foot.

What? Your foot has a sore throat? giggle - Then again, ice cream IS known to be quite medicinal. I know.

Good luck in therapy. And I know exactly what you mean about those pickles & sauerkraut. YUM.

Best wishes to your Uncle. Safe trip!

We can still get the black salve here, and cheap too. Let me know if you want me to send you some!!! Donna
