My current home doesn't have a verandah but I'd like it to! A long porch surrounding the entire house. With a porch swing, potted blueberry plants, and a long strong dog laying at my feet. The sweet smell of lrosemary and freshly-turned soil wafting across my yard. The chickens clucking contentedly as they scratch for goodies in the fertile dirt. Knowing we have a full root cellar, trees in the orchard about to drop their bounty, and soup made all from hand-picked harvests bubbling in the crockpot. Heaven.

Please move with me over to my current blog, www.rosemary-ridge.blogspot.com ... thank you!

RAIN CAME

We got lots of rain yesterday. Those huge drops that really hurt when they smack your head. Today, in the beginning light of dawn, I checked the seedlings and plants. All ok. Whew! In fact, have even more seedlings, especially corn and winter squash. Woohoo!

Wish we could have seen the puppy yesterday. With Hubby unexpectedly leaving (father dying 2 states away), had to put the trip on the back burner, as well as planting the sunflowers, cucumbers, and melons. Maybe I can get to that tomorrow.

Task for today: on hold. Woke up with a splitting headache / migraine. I really can't get much done when it's here. Checking for messages and recipes, then getting offline and heading back to bed, migraprofen in hand, shades and curtains drawn, a/c on, and a cool washcloth at the ready. I'll keep the door open to listen to the sounds of the house and my Kid but hopefully a good nap under the influence will help me.

Have a good day.
