The Way My "Garden" Grows

The Cherry Blossoms on base today were AMAZING. Alicia was right! They were "nothing" on Sunday. Wow. The sad, sad truth is that I didn't have a memory card in my camera. Maybe I'll catch some tomorrow.

We did school.  Finished another missionary biography. I'm going to start one next where they live a long and happy life.

Several of us met to finalize plans on the upcoming Women's retreat. Everyone has such great ideas. This is going to be wonderful. Do be praying for the worship leader and I...we want anointing....God's words for us for this time.

Today was absolutely beautiful...and the wind was manageable. Wow - the DIRT all over our windows, on our patio and anything left outside, is amazing  from yesterday's wind storm.

Four days without talking to Michael.

We got a new-to-us oven. It's my new trick. If you don't want to clean an appliance, call FMO out on a service call. LOL  The man told me that I need to call FMO and ask for a transformer because it will work better. Evidently, they aren't standard here. WE didn't have one.

I weeded the front yard and started watering.

I've been bringing my plants in every  night and when we get terrible wind....Look at what I have now....

A strawberry!!!! Maybe we'll get more than one! Now I'm obsessing about CROWS.

Teeny tiny broccoli on all three plants...

But my lettuce....good grief. I have no clue what THAT is. I thought it said lettuce...but I'm not so sure now...and it's crowding out my LETTUCE....I was so dreaming of fresh salads...lots of green leaf lettuce under the monster plant. I can't decide if I should uproot it and plant my lettuce or leave it and see what it grows into. LOL

Our wind is becoming quite obnoxious! One of our new pastors who moved here from TX said it feels and sounds like a hurricane but freezing temps (LOL). No KIDDING! The wind chill was something like 23 degrees yesterday! The rain sounds like it's going to come right through the windows!

I don't recall ever having this type of wind for this many days in a row.

I was thinking the same thing Cynthia. I remember wind from MT but not the heavy, strong wind you are describing. That seems more like TX or Northern Japan. LOL

I DO miss the co-ops, Mom.

I tasted the big green plant today and it's not lettuce. Now what to do. LOL
