Well...honestly! The check is in the mail!

My better half set me a couple tasks. I'm putting up a stud wall in the garage and insulating it. I built one arbor for our climbing rose, and now have to do a much larger and more extensive one for our wisteria (dang thing climbed all the way up the downspout to the eaves in one year!).

Really wish I could post the pictures we take of our gardens, we have almost 250 different varieties of perennial and a few annual flowers, and planted a vegetable garden as well. We got cucumbers, peppers, chilis, melons, squash, zucchini, sweet corn, tomatos (5 heirloom varieties), rhubarb, peas, carrots, spinnach, lettuce, kale, and beans. Nothing quite like fresh picked vegetables that you've grown.

Every year, we take thousands of photos, then pick the best and make calendars with the best shots. The first year we made 5 and gave a few to family as christmas gifts. Last year, our third year doing the calendars, we actually had three seperate calendars, and had a dozen of each printed.

My health has been spotty at best. Still, excuses are like...well you know. :) I will try to get some writing done, in between projects and the vagaries of my health. Send me money! Then I could push the writing up in my priorities.
