Gardening



The weather here in the Texas panhandle has been unpredictable to say the least. There is always wind, wind, and more wind. But we have had days where the nighttime low is 32 with a frost warning and then the high for the day is 79. Talk about using your heating blanket at night and then wearing your shorts that very afternoon. So, needless to say I have been hesitant to plant anything yet. But now I am so pleased I was able to plant my garden last week. It is a small garden and I have tomato plants, zucchini, squash and yellow bell pepper. Last year for whatever reason, I didn’t get one planted.  The summer before last, I planted a large garden that even included strawberries. It was unsuccessful however because the rabbits ate it all! (That may have been the reason I wasn’t too anxious to have one last year). I also have hollyhock seeds I want to plant soon. If they are successful and go to seed, then I will be able to pass them along to you if you would like some.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week-end. 

Love you all,

Anna

Oh, it's just me...



Hi friends!

I wanted to give you all a brief update on what has been going on around here. I have been rather erratic in my postings and intend to get back on track. Life has been marching on full speed around our house. My husband graduated this past Saturday with his Doctor of Philosophy degree.  And I have just recently started my own business. It is called “Anna’s Sweet Creations” and by special order I make cakes, pies, cookies, cheesecakes, breads, specialty soups, and just about anything else. (There is only so much room on business cards). I really enjoy sharing my love of cooking and baking with others and that is how my business got started.
I hope this post finds you all starting to slow down and enjoy the beginning of summer. I am hoping in the next few weeks I will be able to stop and smell the roses!
Talk to you soon!

Love,
Anna

Happy Mother's Day

Being a mother is definitely a “learn as you go” experience. Unfortunately there is no handbook to go by. And of course the teenage years are a whole different experience. But I wouldn’t change a thing. I have tried to instill values in my girls and I know they have helped me grow and be a better mom. And for that I am eternally grateful.

Happy Mother’s Day friends!
