Just Too Wonderful Wednesday

 Yeah - you can tell Mom is bored - two posts in one day!  We TRIED keeping her in bed - we really did but she kept looking out at the sunshine and said it was "calling to her". It is a stunning clear blue sky day and a lovely 85 degrees but even Dweeb's #1 weight wasn't a match for her determination to be outside for a bit.

We said she could only go outside is she rested in her outdoor recliner and Dweeb #1 took his job very seriously and sat on her legs again making sure she didn't move - that was UNTIL her saw a doggie on the other side of our fence and he was off to tell it to keep away his MY garden.  Then Mom started mumbling about the plants needed watering and the veggies needed checking and she was off.  Mom LOVES her plants and she said she couldn't stand to see them wilting. 

She went first and checked the veggie garden and can you believe it - here it is nearly the end of October and we have all these wonderful fresh tomatoes, peppers and parsley. There was even a couple of apple cucumbers but Mom couldn't reach them.  (Mom grows the peppers for dad cause he loves them even though she's allergic to them) Mom's favorite are those little yellow cherry tomatoes as they are low acid and don't hurt her mouth like the red ones do.

Next we went to check on MY tree. This is the one Mom and Dad bought just for me so I would have a shady spot in my garden.  It has grown a good three feet and filled out quite a bit this year and look at the beautiful color - you can see why it is called and October Blush maple - it is October and it is blushing!

After that we "dragged" mom inside so she could get some lunch. Getting her to eat is a lot like keeping her rested - near impossible. She couldn't resist having a cheese and tomato sandwich though with those yummy fresh picked tomato on it.  Okay- we admit it - we did taste half of it for her - had to make sure it was safe from any lurgies - but she ate the other half so that good.

Tomorrow we will share some pics of all the pretty flowers still blooming in the garden - but first Mom needs a nap and we have closed the blinds so the sunshine can't call to her anymore.  We are thinking of Goose with all that snow you had - hey maybe we should swap places - we LOVE the snow and cold and you can have the warm sunny days.


  1. Guys, you are really doing a great job with Mom. Still getting tomatoes Hey!, looks good. Now you make sure Mom rests the rest of the day.
