I know I’ve already talked about it a lot (will she EVER just SHUT UP?), but my hip surgery is on Monday. I really appreciate all the thoughts & prayers that everyone has expressed so far. I’m actually looking forward to it at this point. And, bonus, I get a few weeks off of work too! Watch this space: there may be blogging from the hospital.
For now, here’s my week. If you want to see more pictures, go check out Dr. M’s blog post from today.
Sunday, July 31st
We had our annual church picnic Sunday afternoon. I got to interview Ms. Phyllis for our church newsletter. She taught school for many years before she retired to cheat at scrabble at church picnics. Just kidding. Although I’ve been told that she does cheat.
Here are some other pics of the day – our hosts had a new pontoon boat. We had a great time tooling around on a hot day.
Monday, August 1st
Here’s our cement pond picture of the week.
The weekly squirrel. Sigh.
The ground crew.

What, me steal green tomatoes?
We’re really enjoying seeing this juvenile woodpecker. Dr. M has more woodpecker pictures on his blog today.
Wednesday, August 3rd
It’s a purple pepper! Our golden ones look pretty ripe too. We think. How can you tell when you’ve never grown one before? We’re going to do the taste test later this week.
Thursday, August 4th
Our first tomato! They sure have taken their time getting ripe this year.
It’s a buckeye butterfly. But I don’t see any chocolate or peanut butter so I’m not sure I believe it. Heh.
It’s the State of the Bug. Have you ever had a time when you had to go too badly to even brush your hair? Apparently I was having just such a day on Thursday. It was my second ultrasound in two weeks – this one for the uterus area (the first one didn't show any kidney issues). My facebook status for that moment was: Waiting on my ultrasound - they'd better hurry or things could get embarrassing! I’ll find out the results next week.
Friday, August 5th
Lots of pictures today. Dr. M took some pictures in our back yard. The cypress vine is doing its usual takeover.
Birds! I know, you never see birds on here… We’re thinking the blue one is maybe a White Breasted Nut Hatch.
And here’s the Tax Time Pig, looking pretty in purple.
Lookit! I made a tool! My boss had closed my blinds & then left, & I couldn’t reach to open them back up. So I put a paperclip on the cane handle. It worked fabulously.
Saturday, August 6th
Double double lilies!
My first ham, cheese & homegrown tomato sandwich of the year. (Please ignore the dirty dishes & bread crumbs on the counter. Thank you.)
