Apples, Cottages and Raspberries


I didn’t write yesterday because I had one visitor after another.  First came Kathy who finally wanted to learn how to email attachments so that she could email those amazing hang-glider pictures to me.  She works with an Apple lap top and I must say,  I miss the right click function on that one. I don’t know if that was a problem with her computer or if that’s what it is with Apple.  If it’s Apple specific, then I would not want one.

Anyhow, then came the young lady (a classmate of my boys) who wants to clean for me.  So, I tried to interview her and show her around while Kathy was there. That was a bit hectic.
After Kathy had left, LuAnn called to see if I was up for a visit.  I was 🙂
While all this visiting was going on, Brionna – my little helper, stepped right up and cleaned 3 cottages for me.  She did a fantastic job and I hope she enjoyed being here, because SHE IS HIRED.

Then it was late enough for me to go and shop for dinner,  Mike was home before I got back from the store and that was my day.  So you see, no time to write.

I went around today and took some pictures.  Here they are:

strange looking hydrangea. This little beauty was thought to be dead, so I planted the hydrangea. Aparently it's alive and kicking :)

Yes, yes I see the grass.  Boys will be weeding here this afternoon 😉

Blackberries and raspberries

Blackberries and raspberries.

As I type the word “raspberries”  I have to think about a woman here in town, who among other things, advertises “Rasberrys”  on a big sign outside of her yard.  I don’t think anyone has ever told her that there’s a slight problem with that.  The same sign is out every summer.

  1. Please do not cut the big pine tree down, it would change the whole appearance

  2. Don’t cut down the pine tree !!! Tell him the bushes out front were enough. It gives you a little privacy when you are sitting around your fire pit.

  3. NO NO NO one must never cut down a tree that isn’t sick or dying. It will bring much bad karma to the person who does it!!!

    As for Peacocks, the belong in the same category as those chickens. Nuisance and pests.:))

  4. I was going to write and ask you to “Please not cut down your pine tree”, but so many other people have written already. So, I will say, “Please, please, please, DO NOT cut down your pine tree. It is so beautiful, it will leave such an empty and bare spot. It’s so pretty and green and in the winter doesn’t the snow look lovely on the branches? So, please leave it and let it keep decorating your yard. See, no one wants you to cut it down. :o)

  5. I wrote something and now it’s gone? Hummm, I hope I am not repeating myself. Here goes again. Please, please, please do not cut down your beautiful pine tree. It is lovely where it is. I’m sure it is also pretty in the winter with snow all over it’s branches. It will leave such a bare, empty spot if you remove it. I hope this is not too late and I hope Mike saw the other commets. No one thinks he should cut it down. You are lucky to have it.

    Hey – I know it’s a pretty tree, and it’s bad karma to cut down a tree… but who ever planted this one and the one on the front NW corner of the front porch didn’t “figure they were gonna get THAT BIG”….. The one by cabin one is beginning to break up the asphalt with it’s root system and the one on the front porch I’m having to cut branches back on to keep it from damaging the porch… So what do I get to do – let em go cause “their too pretty to cut down”?…
    Hey I’m just the general maintenance and handyman, whatever the “boss lady wants she gets”….. But I do luvherabunch.
