Bring on June

May just hasn't been the best month at Our simple green house.. First there was the cold then when I was in the shower on Tuesday Morning I put my back out. Dr said this is a very common spot for a back injury. The garden will be suffering for a bit, bending is a task that isn't happening without pain. I have been doing lots of sitting and resting. On Wednesday I spent the whole day Watching the 7th season on the "Gilmore Girls", (I just love this show I was so disappointed when I found out this was the last season) I had borrowed it to make doing the ironing more bearable but ironing was out of the question. The chiropractor said "No standing for long periods". Oh well I had to send the ironing to the ironing lady, bit out of the budget but what is a girl to do? I figured the pile was only going to get bigger and bigger and become a very daunting task so it may as well get done. The ironing lady and I are currently working on a Barter system, she irons for me and I'm going to scan a pile of photos and put them onto disk for her. This works for both of us and keeps the costs down. (I would prefer to scan photos to ironing any day)

Ironing lady is a luxury I used to have on a regular basis but now I try to keep up tp date with the ironing myself. A cleaning lady was another Luxury I used to have, but I haven't had one of those for a few years now. Nobody seems to do it just right...

Tomorrow we are going to a friends vow renewal ceremony, they have been married for 10 years but they didn't have a "wedding" the first time just themselves and 2 witnesses, they figure they have endured 10 years and are still going strong that they might as well have a "PARTY". This should be a lot of fun. I will try to blog more often, I also have some progress photos of the garden to put up, as well as my first attempt at pasta making.

Have a great day and stay safe.

Take care, I hope your back feels better soon.

Hi Tracie,
Thanks for the comment and question about the popcorn. You grow special corn for popping. I think it has more starch. I bought the seeds from Eden seeds.

I hope your back feels better soon. Back injuries can be such a hassle.

That must've been some sneeze you had! I hope your back heals faster than you think it might.
