this and that

April showers brings May flowers, except in this case it is July showers makes the garden grow! My garden is jumping overnight!Everything is growing and soon I will be getting produce out of it. It is also time to start planting some other crops. I always wait to plant my squash. It seems if I plant in the spring when you are supposed to I don't get any because it grows a hairy fungus and turns mushy. I am also going to plant watermelon that way I will have some when the store is out of them!

The rain is slowing down the putting up of the pool. I was hoping to have it up and filling it with water today so it would be ready tomorrow. Still a chance but a smaller one now. May be Saturday before we can get it up.

Tomorrow Brook goes back to doctor for x-rays and a new cast or a brace. I hope a brace! She is so tired of taking a halfway bath! She wants a shower and to go swimming!

School starts back in slightly over a month here. Starts back August 10th. That is a bit later than last year. Next year they do not get out until June instead of the middle of May like they did this year.

LOL Brook went thru a growth spurt. Candy had been buying some clothes for school without trying them on. Well the other day she tried some on and they were too tight! Poor kid. She has this tiny waist and nice legs. She needs a size 5 in waist, 8 in length(barely) and 10 in thighs! I guess all that kicking in Tae Kwon Do has built her up!

That's it for today. Enjoy your Thursday.

    Glad your garden is growing well and you will soon be getting produce out of it ~ Hope you manage to get your pool up and filled ~ When Brook goes back to the hospital I hope they give her a brace rather than another cast ~ amazing how quickly they grow will they be able to exchange the school clothes as they are now too small ? ~ Ally

  6. That sounds like a girl built to wear a skirt, lol! I hope she gets the brace instead of a cast. Much more comfy.

  8. Hi Celeste,  We badly need some rain here, we`ve just had a couple of wet days but we need far more to make a difference.  Brook must be really fed-up not being able to do very much during the holidays, let`s hope her wrist heals quickly. :o)
