Although there have been homes evacuated around our city, Miss Boots and I are safe and dry as we live well uphill of any running water. The rain combined with some great sunshine has contributed to blooms on my balcony!

(Yes, I know ... that date stamp thing is wrong
... yet again!)
|These little geraniums are the MOST VIViD|
and brilliant happy SCARLET!
|Thanks to my 'kitty deflectors', the Sweet|
Peas are finally prospering!
|The Parsley and Thyme is finally producing|
enough to contribute to my kitchen.
|Even the Sunflowers are starting |
to shoot up!
... a very good reason like "WHERE DID ALL THE LETTUCE SPROUTS GO?"
|Hmmm ... wreckage ...|
|"Whaddya mean 'DID I DIG UP THE LETTUCE AGAIN'?|
I'm GARDENING here ... don't you get that, hu-mum?"
|"Now PUSS OFF! Cuz I'm going to have a NAP|
in my garden!"
So I've been having fun planning my innovative European vacation. Departure date is Friday July 6!
I had a tough time decided exactly where to start, and finally settled on SPAIN. I've been brushing up on my Espanol in preparation ... ¿Dónde está el baño? Cuánto cuestan estas agujas de tejer? ... I'll be blogging as I travel, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, I have a CRAZY work week happening ... 2 staff members away on holidays at the same time (who was IDJIT that allowed THAT to happen?!?!?!), a Board meeting, a monthly newsletter to get out, and so on. If i didn't already, now I REALLY NEED A VACATION!
Happy July Long Weekend, y'all!
