Yesterday Americans remembered what happened 17 years ago - where a group of evil terrorists highjacked 3 airplanes and used them as weapons of mass destruction to murder over 3,000 innocent people. Why? Hate. Please join me in fighting against that, spread love with me. I remember where I was when I found out about the attacks, my younger sister Denise called me and woke me and told me - "Turn on the news, something terrible is happening." I worked at The Oregonian newspaper in the Circulation Department, taking missed paper complaints, starts and stops of deliveries. In between calls I began working on this peyote stitch necklace and then the earrings - I felt so helpless at what was going on in NY City. It was my own way to do something, which was to create something that shouted out my patriotism, my love of my country. When will terrorism end? I wish I knew.
Last Sunday my son Travis went fishing with his friends. For the first time he didn't catch anything, but his friends did and they sent him home with half of their catch. On Monday Kristi prepared the salmon, made rice and peas for our dinner. YUM!
She sprinkled my Cajun seasoning, NuNu's, on the salmon and baked it. It was delicious and soooooo tender.
There is a huge Hawthorn tree on the top of the hill behind our farmhouse. It's covered with berries, the birds love them.
It's on the border of our 5 acre property. We have several of them on the farm. I'm pretty sure they are bird trees, in other words, the birds dropped the seeds here and there.
The garage barn roof used to be completely covered with a thick carpet of moss, but lately it's been sliding off. :-)
The weather forecasters told us it was going to rain all this week. WELL.. a very pitiful amount has fallen. But some is better than none, right?
Our September is mild so far, as in no frosts, so our flowers in pots are still blooming away.
Dayle over-winters our geraniums and they are performing well. It won't be long, though.. until he brings them into the landing to the basement.
I bought a few Rose of Sharon bushes last year and I'm happy to see they are growing and blooming. I've admired big bushes of these for years now and am gratified to have some on the farm.
This is another color Rose of Sharon.
This orange begonia will also go into storage, it may someday need a bigger pot as it's gotten huge.
It's a swim day and then home again. I got a new magazine rack for by my chair, it's metal and wall-mounted. When we get it installed I'll take a photo to show you. I'm so happy to get my "nest" more organized! Dayle also did his side! Have a super day and thank you for visiting today. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
