Hey Ladies, How about we are on pg.50 and soon to be over 50 which I am. (58 and 59 in Dec.) In fact my e-mail address is 50 plus @yahoo. Maybe I will have to change it to 60 plus in a few years.
My hubby is in Canton Ohio (Judy near you) and is having lunch with family at Tim's Taveren. Famous for their fish sandwiches. Know where that is?
I have all this house work that I was going to do today...and I am still in pj's reading, snacking, laying on the front porch swing. I can't seem to get motivated. Anyone else like that today? I really love days like this...I don't think that we take enough of them. (lazy recoup days) Busy Busy Busy. I read somewhere that we are human doers and less of human beings. But today I am a human do nothing. Welp, the front porch swing is calling me again. Wher's my book.
Have a great day y'all!

Hi Debra, I haven't gotten anything done today either. It's frustrating cause I have so many things I want to do...oh well.

We are in an apt during the week since hubby got a job in another town and then back to the ranch on weekends. I have been trying to get laundry done at the apt. laundry and the dang washers keep taking my $1.50 in quarters and still won't turn on! ARG! I may end up using the bathtub, but not sure if the dryers work either. Trying to keep from hauling laundry to and from the ranch, where we have to haul our water.

Ok, i will stop whining for now.

Kai is a year old now, a few months less in the photo. She has on her winter woolies in that pic.

Patsy, I was thinking coriander and cilantro were the same thing. I googled it, and it said that the seeds are coriander, and the leaves & stems are commonly called cilantro.

Well that solves a mystery! Always wondered why there were two names for one plant.

The pinks are gorgeous!

Love the sweet williams Patsy. What beautiful color. They "POP" at you when you look at them.

You are right. We don't take enough time for ourselves. It is hard for us humans to be in the moment...Always a step ahead and thinking of tomorrow. Well today I was in the moment and it was WONDERFUL! I enjoyed everything about the day. The smells, the color, the sounds, the taste. Thank you God! That is what I can say about the day.
(I needed a day like today...being still and being.
Y'all have a GREAT Weekend!

A well rested.

Now, Don't they just make you smile???
NASTURTIUM!
I even love the funny name
You wouldn't think that a flower with that kind of name
would be so bright and cheerful.

So... every time I log on I will see it and think of the Farm Gals!
Thank you.

Well, since we are showing off our pretties...I thought I'd show you my pretty California Lilac.
Why it is called that I don't know because it looks more like a Butterfly Bush to me...but I just fell
in love with the fibrant Blue of the flower. It is on my Porch and right now doesn't look as pretty
as it did in the early summer.

Welcome Nan who is 60. I will be 60 myself in Oct. (which seems to be coming faster than a freight train). LOL
You also don't live that far from me. I am just across the River from Portland...so you must be about 2 1/2 to 3
hours from here. I take my Bible Study Group to the Oregon Coast every year for a Retreat. We rent a big house
and just enjoy our weekend, shopping, eating, laughing and crying and loven on each other as we enjoy God's
beauty all around us.

I can't believe all the chat...chat...chatter on her today. We went from page 50 this morning to 52. I am glad our
birthdays don't come and go that quickly. heehee

Have you ladies eaten Nasturiums or pansies in your salads? The are so pretty and make a gorgeous salad. I would do
one or the other...not both at the same time.

I Can't remember who showed the Sweet Williams...but they are very pretty too.

I didn't know that corriander and celantro were the same. I guess I have never let my celantro go to seed before. I love it in
so many different dishes. It seems to be an herb that people either love it or hate it. I love it!

Well, enough blab for tonight...I am off to bed...and I hope to sleep in tomorrow.

blessings,
peggy

The flowers are so beautiful, ladies. So bright and colorful!

That little filly is so precious. How old is she?

Glad to hear you took time to rest and enjoy just being lazy. I used to feel guilty doing that then I told myself that whatever needed to be done wasn't going anywhere and would still be there. It is so good for us to just take the time to sit back and relax.

The older I get the less important the little things in life become and so many things become the little things. I laugh a lot more than I ever did at situations. :)))

Have a wonderful weekend,

Talking about less important things in life...
I read this.

Don't sweat the petty stuff
and don't pet the sweaty stuff!
Loved it.

I love the California lilac. Does it smell like a lilac? It does look like a butterfly bush but blue

I am off to help with a charity of NIN (Newborns in Need) We make baby items and distribute these to hospitals and crises centers. I crochet preemie blankets. It is fun and helps the babies in the community. If you are interested go to www.newbornsinneed.org. You can send handmade baby items to this charity or find one in your area. (there are also free knit and crochet patterns on this site)
y'all have a good day. Type @ U later

And Nasturtiums make a beautiful presentation on a plate 'cause they are an edible flower as long as they have not been sprayed or treated! :)


My best to all,

Love that CA lilac. I've never seen one here in CA though. I love the nasturiums(spelling?) I just spent 3 hours out in the garden pulling weeds and tidying up but had to come in as it was getting hot out there. I'd run out of shade. Today I sew the binding on my granddaughters quilt that came back from the quilters. Will post a photo when it's done. Since everyone is sending us such gorgeous flowers to share I want to add one of my own. It's a cactus flower and it bloomed for the first time this year but has bloomed three more times since the photo was taken. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

How beautiful this cactus flower is. Hard to imagin that something so prickly can produce a flower so pretty. Thanks for sharing.

Penny: i have never fixed fresh salmon, grew up on canned salmon made into patties and fried. love those. so how did you fix your salmon?

Debra: Nasturtium sounds stern doesn't it? I never thought to use any of my flower photos for screen savers, neat idea.
loved the "sweaty ditty" lol

Nan: welcome to the over 50 group. looking forward to seeing more posts from you. :)

Peggy: that is a gorgeous blue flower. does look like a butterfly bush.
always heard about using pansies or nasturtiums on salad, but never tried it. also found a recipe for making "capers" out of the seed bulbs before they get hard.

Mel: all my stuff is never sprayed, so would make a lovely presentation, stuff i never think of.

Betty: My hubby just loves cacti.You must have the right "everything" to have had it bloom more than once. very pretty. is it a hard flower or soft to the touch? :)

I'm so glad everyone is sharing thier pretties. Love it and it brightens the day. Hey, should we delete our pic posts afterwhile or not?
Dug up some sassafrass roots to make some root beer, got the syrup made, will let you know how it tastes. the only thing we ever did with the roots was make "tea".

Isn't this amazing? we grew this sweet potato in our garden 2 years ago. what animal does it make you think of? at first i was thinking a pig or cat. should have entered it in the county fair, I'm sure it would have placed for a ribbon. :)


Make my words soft and tender, for I may have to eat them. :)

The flower on the cactus is soft just like any flower. All of my cactus that have flowered have a soft blossom. They don't usually last long though. Oh! I'm adding another photo of another cactus type flower that is weird looking that I also have.
