Gosh it's so nice to be back again! I am still having a lot of difficulty doing my post on Blogger but I am not giving up on things getting back to normal on here. I did take Patti's advice from one of my favorite blogs Arkansas Patti to download Google Chrome and it is working a tad better after taking her advice.
Thanks Patti for being sweet enough to take the time to help me with my computer issues.
Another reason why I love blogging is where else do you meet such sweet and caring people who care enough to be there for you whenever you need help. Blogging is an amazing experience that I hope I don't ever have to give up permanently.
I received several emails today from some of you asking me why I deleted my blog. That of course, scared me and actually the first time I tried getting on here it did say my blog was deleted. Thankfully the second try I found it. Scary to say the least. I do hope that does not happen because this ole grandma would have no clue trying to bring it back.
I hope you are well and enjoying the hot days of summer. It is so hot here I am counting the days to fall.
These triple digits are keeping me inside more than I care to be but by noon the heat will take your breath away.
As most of you know I have four brothers and no sisters. Yet God Blessed me 60 years ago with the Oliver sisters as my friends but really I think of them as my Sisters. Actually Linda is my Sister-In-Law of almost fifty years. We spent this past weekend together at Linda's house here in Brenham.
It was great being with them but my brother Billy had a stomach virus which put a damper on our weekend but as usual lot's of laughs and catching up. Bonnie is highly allergic to cats so we could not have it out here at the North Forty.
We did manage to get out for a short drive Saturday evening and visited my favorite place in this area Festival Hill.
Festival Hill has several different gardens. This one is the herb garden.
Isn't it cool how they used an old piece of equipment to plant herbs in it.
Most of the plants are labeled but we could not find it on this plant. Any ideas what this could be. It actually looked like some kind of tomato plant but I don't think so.
All of their Bougainvilleas are huge and so pretty.
Someone is doing an amazing job of keeping this herb garden watered in these high temps. I have a few herbs but nothing like these beauties.
On Sunday afternoon we were delighted that my younger brother Tommy and wife Susan came from on the other side of Houston to spend the afternoon with us. Tommy's daughter Erin met them here from the Hill Country and it was great seeing them. Tommy is the only brother that does not live close so when I get to see him it is a real treat. I love him very much and he actually reads my blog now and then. haha
Stomach virus and all it was a fun weekend!
Since starting this post a few days ago I have caught the stomach virus from my brother. Yep I was afraid that would happen but I was around him a lot last week before the weekend so I was already exposed to it.
I went to the doctor today because my blood pressure was really high all day yesterday and has been on and off for a month now. Now I am on another pill so I am beginning to think that this growing old is not so much fun.
I think I will stop now so I can visit some of your lovely blogs before going to bed.
You are sweethearts for visiting with me like you do. I know my post have been boring these past six months and I wish I could promise you better but my creative juices seem to be a lot like blogger not working when I need them the most.
Oh before I leave I have been wanting to ask you a question. I notice that a lot of you reply to your comments on your comment page. I think this is great and was wondering if this is something I should be doing. The question is do you go back and read the replies and are you notified when a reply comment is left. Just curious so let me know what you think.
Thanks again for being my friend. I do love you.
