ON THE BACK BURNER

Sept 21

I finished painting a second flower this afternoon. It is not that easy. My son is a hard task master and I want him to say that it looks good. Isn’t it usually the kid that wants to please the parent ? The next flower is under discussion. My DiL suggests one color and my son is thinking another. I’m not doing anything until there is an agreement. I unplanted two bushes that I planted last year. They just failed to thrive. I cut it back and put them in a pail of water. If that doesn’t give them some spark, they are out. Some times, things just don’t work out.I have added bunny rabbits to my list of animals that I no longer look at kindly. What the deer didn’t eat, the bunnies finished. You would think that they would be afraid of a 10 foot golden elephant . Maybe they can’t see that high and have no idea that she is even there.Today, on  my afternoon walk with Dixie, a young deer froze just feet from us. It was so still that Dixie smelled something, but didn’t see it. no matter how cute, the deer is still a wild animal and I am just as happy that the two keep their distance.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
