  1. That bright yellow petunia is gorgeous. I know gardening brings you joy, which is probably why you’re so good at it. Your flowers are always lovely.
    Like your pretty nightstand. I have the same lamp that you do. I think I just finished planting my flowers today. But you never know, may have to replace some eventually.

  2. Just a note. I’m an avid reader and always have been, but almost never buy the books. I can borrow up to 30 books from my local library, either download or audio books. You don’t even have to go to the library. I volunteer there which I enjoy so much. So many events going on.

  3. I wasn’t going to leave a comment because I really don’t have much to say. LOL However, as I went about my day I found myself thinking about your post
    I found it interesting that I could ‘hear’ a smile as you described your daily routine and such. You definitely put a song in your heart when you talk about gardening. I’m a firm believer that we should all have something we enjoy doing as time allows. Even if time doesn’t allow, I prefer playing with my hand needlework projects. Definitely a smile in my heart. Thank you for letting me share how you made me feel today.

    By the way, Brenda, the top add is covering up part of one paragraph you wrote…I do not mind ads, off to the side, but covering up content annoys me no end. But I know you need the income, so I continue coming. I don’t know if you can stop it or not…I probably should watch and see who it is and contact them to tell them I would NEVER buy a thing from any ad covering up the hard work of the content writer!! As to AI, even Elon Musk was very worried about it getting out of control. Which it is ruining so much of internet and even cell phones it seems now. I would trash them all if I could. If I end up alone at some point, I probably will trash them all. I hate the invasion of all our privacy and peace. I was chatting with a lady in the car agency today and telling her our old phone number no longer works as we turned it off due to the CONSTANT harrassment of telemarketers!! Sad as we have had that number since at least 2010 if not before.

    1. I’ll see what I can do about the ad. I don’t think you can blame the company with the ad. It’s the ad network that does the placements.

        Ah…much better…all seems ok now!

  5. If you want a really serious and BIG book try Ned Blackhawk’s The Rediscovery of America. It’s a history of the United States which includes the role of Native American Tribes in a much more complete way than any of our history books have to date. But, like I said, it’s not a light read. Since I have some Native American ancestry a couple of generations back I am always drawn to books that explore the role of the original inhabitants of this continent in the founding of the United States.

  6. I’ve seen a lot of worried bloggers about the coming changes to Google, but I think the good ones will find ways to adapt.

  7. I’ve never left a book recommendation before, soooo. . .
    There is a detective/mystery series, Chet and Bernie, and the stories are told through the dog. Even the titles are humorous. The first is Dog on It, followed by To Fetch a Thief, Paw and Order, Scents and Sensibility, Tender is the Bite, of Mutts and Men, etc.
    Also, more and more research points out that coffee is good for you. My doctor sent me to a class, Plants for Life, and they recommend 3 cups a day. This class is based on the research of Dr. Michael Greger.

  8. Your garden photos yesterday were gorgeous!
    I’m reading Demon Copperhead. It’s a hard book to read. I have to resist looking ahead to see what eventually happened to the poor kid.

  9. Another CJ Box book that’s good is The Highway. It is creepy and entirely realistic, given how people are these days. My husband knows him and his wife. They lived in the same town as us for several years, but they bought a ranch a few years ago and moved to a different part of our state.

    1. How interesting! I’ll probably read them all. I tend to find an author and if I like him/her I’ll read all they’ve written.
