Thanks for all of your comments on my last post!

It is good to know what I am dealing with! They sure named Mealybugs appropriately, didn't they. I kinda liked the name I gave them though. Thanks, Cindy for saying the soapy solution will kill them. They sure look like a soft bodied bug. I will look them up in my books now. That is my next thing to do tonight!

Busy day with the grands today. Fun, funny, joyous, tiring, but the best thing ever! I have been blessed.

Yes, I really agree with the fact that the okra bud is so beautiful! I put that one shot I got on my desktop and I can just stare at it for a few moments and be so happy.

Stapeliad, I appreciate that you included the Earth in a list of things I have been blessed with! That is such a truth, and I had not fully realized it until I read it in print. This is my real happiness. Why didn't I become a park ranger??? I just know I would have loved it. When I retire (well, once I am back to work again, that is), I will volunteer in a park. We have some gorgeous State Parks here...some right on the Atlantic.

Speaking of work, I got a call today (just one day after submiting an application). But...all they can offer me is to work Sat and Sunday either from 3-11pm or 11-7am. She wanted me to work every weekend, or every other, but required Sat and Sun (both days). I can't do that with the grands. So another job bites the dust.

It is raining cats and dogs here. I hear there is a tropical depression somewhere around here. We are under a flood warning until 2pm tomorrow! I love the sound of rain, and I know every living thing out in my yard is so happy! Yeah.

Well, tomorrow is another day. Ever onward...

I've never thought of a park ranger, but my friends all say I belong in a nursery. Too bad I don't think they pay that hot! My husband says they're there because it's a'd be a dream job for me!

Stay dry...hopefully you don't get too hard with the rain and you can just enjoy the sound without the flooding!

Hello Julie,
Sorry to hear about the job offer but hope there is another one even better on the way.

I wish we could have some of that rain right now. It would help cool us down here.
Wishing you a wonderful. : )

Hi Julie,
Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. I wish I could have zinnias year around, but the plants do die off. They are a very summer heat loving flower. I can have them here In California through November that is as long as the weather is warm. I transplanted a few weeks ago some California Giants and hope they will flower. Our winters here are not very long so in March I will be sowing my zinnias again.
Have a wonderful weekend!
