Welcome New Blogger

You've heard me talk about my friend John, the one who keeps bailing me out with my computer?

I introduced him to the wonderful world of blogging and now he's started his own blog which will be full of computer tips. I'm sure he'd enjoy it if you'd drop in and say howdy.

In other news, I purchased 1 cherry tomato plant, 1 Roma tomato plant, 1 cucumber plant, and one Alyssium. I will never touch them again; not even to pick a tomato. Ray planted them on Monday; I'm staying as far away from them as possible. He was a landscaper/gardener in his distant past so the plants are probably safe around him. I, on the other hand, am the kiss of death. His next goal is a rosebush; probably along our fence.

The weather here is lovely. I played cards with Tim and our friends this afternoon and granddaughter Samantha joined us for a while It's always a pleasant surprise to run into our Sam. She's 18 now, working, and attending Community College.

Anyhow, I came home to Ray cooking dinner for the two of us. Another pleasant surprise. Every day he seems to feel better. He seldom needs his oxygen during the day although that may change with more pollen in the air. He smiles and jokes which he hadn't done much of the past few years.

Thanks for the comments and emails and take care everyone.

You planted a garden?! I am SO JEALOUS! I can't get mine in the ground until AT LEAST mid April, and May would be safer...

I'm glad to hear Ray is feeling so much better. That must be a huge weight off your mind.

Another blog to read! Yay!

Glad to hear things are going well, Ann. And that the weather is nice for you. It's anything but nice here! It's making me a little edgy. I think I might have to grow shovels for arms if this snow keeps up. Send some of that sunshine our way, ok?

Dear Ann ~~So glad to hear you have been having a better week and better weather. I like Roma tomatoes and also the cherry ones- the ones I plant. But not at this time of year.
I will pop over to your friend's new blog. It's great that Ray is doing so well and you seem to be doing well
as usual. Thanks for your comments a
few days ago. Take reat care, my friend, Love, Merle.

I'm glad to hear that Ray is up and feeling better. Sounds like he is getting pretty active too.

I bought three cherry tomato plants. They are planted in a big container. I'm hoping to get at least one of them to produce. We'll see if SF weather can do it.

I also planted some other things in the landscape, we'll see if they produce anything.

Oh wow, what wonderful news about Ray, Ann. Woohoo! and you're going to have a garden, too. I adore Roma acid.

Well, I think this deserves a toast...

To Ann and Ray, foo-ooor they are jolly good felloooows...aaaand so say all of us. Hip, hip hooray!
(Takes a glug of wine...theoretically only, it's a bit early!)

Sounds like things are going well with you. I am glad that Ray is better. Good luck with the garden

Barbra said...

I'm so glad you are back!!! and really glad to hear about Ray. I wish we could get tomato plants in the ground here in WV... we may have snow again. Looking forward to the pictures.

The Future Was Yesterday said...

It's so good to hear of Ray's continuing recovery!!

And don't feel bad about that "kiss of death." My wife is a Biologist - and she can kill a plant faster than anyone I've ever met!! It's gotten so bad for the poor girl, she points at house plants she wants, and has me carry them out.:)

Hi Ann,

I'm glad Ray is doing so much better, and you had a nice visit with Sam.

I said hi to your friend John and asked a computer question.

I hope all is well with you?

Hi Ann,

It's good that Ray is getting along so much better. I'm happy for you both. Those little veggie plants will be fun to grow. I need to get going with some gardening here, too.

Today is the second rainy day in a row...trying not to let it get me down.

Take care,

Gina said...

It sounds like things are going swimmingly for both of you, and I am so glad!

Day Dreamer said...

I'm glad to hear about Ray as well.

I'll head to that blog and take a peeksie!

PEA said...

Good morning dear Ann:-)

It is another absolutely frigid day here in my corner of the world so I'm staying inside where it's nice & warm and visiting all my blogging buddies! Seems I have more time on weekends to visit than during the week!!

How wonderful that Ray is doing so much better...what a change in him from this time last year! Good sign too that he's finding joy in gardening and cooking again as well:-) I can't even think of planting anything until at least late May, early June. Right now my garden is still under a few feet of snow! Ugh.

Have a fabulous weekend my friend! xox

I just clicked over and welcomed John to the grand world of blogging.

I am so glad to hear that Ray continues to improve!

Blessings to you both.

Lovely news about Ray. May it continue.

For Ray to be planting things in the garden, he must really be feeling better - I'm glad for him and you. Roma tomatoes are one of my favorites. ec
