June 27… about time update…

The first update is on little Felix, they have put a Berlin heart on him until there’s a little heart for him. He does open his eyes and recognizes his momma ❤️

Felix’s folks are handling this very good given the circumstance. They feel the love and prayers of many caring people.

Next update… the little raised garden bed is really doing good this year. I have put squash in the freezer .. shredded,and fried. I would like to make some zucchini bread yet to add to the freezer list.

Hubby came home with around 15 lbs of sweet cherries,nice to have those to put in the freezer.

Of course there has been camping , Leona’s best therapy for boredom.

Leona has a new little friend. …The rabbits have been after my garden and flowerbeds awful! my poor lilies are barely surviving,the sweet potatoes are gone ,now they are working on my echinacea plants.😖

Hubby decided that it was time to get a terrier . So Sparky has join our family.

Rabbit damage

The next project that I have been learning about ,is how to do my own essential oils. I use oils, especially in the winter in a diffuser for Leona. They are also great to have when her muscles get to tight. The problem good oils are pricy!! So I am learning to do the ones that I use the most .

Here’s the distillery.😄

Peppermint plants will be growing around here…. In pots , pans ,tubs … anything that will hold dirt.😄

Next thing that got done that feels so good to have done is a…..

Scrubbed up porch!
The last project that I’ve been working on is this painting. It is a paint by number that I’m just doing my way . I want this to hang on my dining room wall as it is bare right now.

Here’s how far I am… the original way to paint it

My way
And that’s what I’ve been doing along with normal every day chores, and Leona’s care.

    1. Thank you! Leona enjoys going to the porch to have Sparky crawl into her lap for a bit.. as Sparky gets bigger she wouldn’t be able to hold her but for now she’s enjoying it.

      1. Thankful for all the little things that bring a smile and happiness. I can picture Sparky larger running and romping > Leona will be so delighted when he steals a lick or two! Animals bring so much love to our lives – Hugs

      2. We definitely need those little things to bring us smiles! Trust me Leona will be getting doggy kisses for that’s a mission that little dog is on all the time.😂


    1. That’s great! Love to bring interest to a reader.🤗 I didn’t know what a Berlin heart was either until little Felix had to have one. I love learning how to do things myself , it feels great when I learn how to do something new . There’s so much one can learn when it comes to plants and weeds included that can be used for the good.

  2. My goodness you have been busy! I am so glad that there has been some fun things too. Sparky is adorable, is he being a sweet boy and friend to Leona? Your painting is beautiful, much better than the original by far. How clever to use that as a base and then use your talent to make it sing. The essential oils thing looks quite amazing, we may need to try that!

    1. Sparkle is a sweet energetic little dog ,definitely entertaining for Leona when she’s outside. Thank you ,it is rather fun painting using a base. If I get the oil making down pat I’ll do a post on it. The house smells great while working with the still. I did cedar oil from cedar needles for the outside dogs ,and to put in our bug repellent spray . You should give it a try ,it’s so fun learning all about it.
