Well Wisconsinites, we got the rain and now we are watching and listening to the grass grow. We are never content, but today is a perfect day to do some gardening and other outside projects. Enjoy it now before we start complaining about the heat.
This week I celebrate 37 years of marriage. I feel God has given me a new beginning as my husband went through some major health issues over the last few years. I have a friend that suddenly lost her husband to a massive heart attack. Totally unexpected. They would have had a 25th year anniversary this week also. Some times life really hands you lemons. I am sitting on my porch watching a survivor of a quadruple bypass doing anything he wants. He has not let his health slow him down, but the complete opposite.
Make lemonade today. A good day for it. Thank God each and every day. Just realized the world did not end yet. Hurrah.

Good to hear from you again. I am always reminded of an old saying, "Want to make God laugh? Tell him your plans!"

Congratulations on the marriage. Mines comming up in August also, 37 years.
Yes rain we got, and more on the way with thunderstorms and tornado warnings.
I at least got some of my planting done on our some what warm days.

Now after Tuesday they are saying down into the 50's for highs again. Boy, How I wish for warmer weather, note I said warmer not HOT. I hate HOT weather with a passion along with the ice cold winter months of 42 below zero.

Am I happy, you bet I am , how could I not be… I live in wisconsin, were we have the best cheese, beer, cranberries, cherries, etc… I may complain, but I love it here!
