I love new books .........

Two books about herbs that I ordered from Amazon came today. They both look like they will be informative as well as full of beautiful pictures and illustrations. I will curl up in my chair with them later tonight. New books always make me happy.

We've had a wet couple of days, but we needed the moisture. It is warm today, so with the high humidity it almost feels like a sauna when the sun peeks out for a few minutes. We have a tornado watch in effect for awhile this evening, but it looks calm right now.

After doing my weekly house-cleaning today, I planted some vinca around the light pole in front of the house. I've tried different things in that spot and vinca does so much better than anything else. If I find something that works well, I will stick with it. I had 10 plants left over, so I planted them in some pots on the deck. I'll probably pick up some petunias tomorrow and plant them in pots.

I went for my annual physical week before last. I've gotten all my lab and test results back - everything was normal. I didn't think anything would be wrong, but it's always nice to be given a clean bill of health. I still have an appointment for a colonoscopy on the 13th. I'm trying not to think about it. I have put off having this done for years. This time the doctor didn't ask me about it, he just made the appointment and told me when it was. I guess he knew I would keep putting it off.

Mazel tov on the good news from the tests!
Been unbelievably wet and a bit chilly here. Supposedly we're going to have more of the same for the remainder of the week. I don't think I'll be able to plant anything in this weather. Maybe this is a good excuse to go out and look at more nurseries!!!

Mmmm! New books! I'm one of Amazon's best customers and spend far too much there!

Colonoscopy - not a lot of fun, but not half as bad as thinking about it beforehand! Good luck!

Colonoscopy! Believe me, the worst part is the prep! It seems they are developing improved exams,but it still will involve the dreaded preparation.
