It is getting that time of year

Hey Friends, in that first picture Bambi is shaking her head!! Can you tell??
It is that time a year that when you go outside the ticks jump on you from all angles !!! Bambi has become allergic to the Frontline and other tick preventive medicines, so we have to brush and flea comb her and if I didn't get any while we were out I get some than!!!
This is just one of our stevia plants. That little plant sweetens our tea and anything else we need sweeten!! It is a wonderful plant and I suggest that you all go to the nursery and buy and use them!! They are wonderful plants!!!
When Tom gos to bed he takes Happy's Christmas monkey from Jazzi and puts it on the chair. Happy loves her monkey but she will trade it for him any day!!!
The only true Camellia that is blooming right now!! It is the first to bloom just behind the Sasanqusa Camellia!!! Like Ms K said I do grow a lot of Camellias and have a messy house!!!

Love coming your way, Bambi, Happy & Fern

Hello dear friends, While the rest of you are in the deep freeze we are cooler but not in the freeze. Here is a couple pictures of our greenery. The picture below is one of our Oregano plants.

The two above is our Sasanqua Camellia that is blooming this time a year.

We had a lovely Thanksgiving with our fresh caught fish!! Haven't heard from David and Cathy b/c they are at her family this week-end and I never hear from them when they are there.

That is part of the trouble having a son. When you have a son and he is married to someone who doesn't live close then they will be at her family's place on those special days and they come to see you just before or just after, but thank God they come!!!

Tom has taken the whole Thursday- Friday- Saturday-Sunday off and that is wonderful!! We have been having a great time together. I love it when he is home!! We cook together and have the best meals and talks. I love it!!!

Enjoy the rest of the week-end my friends, Bambi, Happy & Fern

We are having beautiful weather !

Hi dear friends, I thought I would show you a couple pictures of our garden, pictures taken yesterday!! The picture above is swiss chard. We dearly love swiss chard!! We try to have some every week even if we have to get some from the farmers market.

You all know what the picture above the chard is?? Right? We love yellow peppers here so we grow some. Again if we need to we get some from the farmers market.
I thought since it is cold in most of our country I would show you the garden! It is not cold here at all. We got up to 80 degree today. They say that we might get some rain on Friday, but it is not a big chance. It is going to be 80 degrees on Thanksgiving. We have had our turkey so on Thursday we are going to have fresh caught fish that a customer brought us.
We have really good customers!!
The top photo is our sweet Bambi that is doing very well. Her ear is pretty much healed up!!
I think she looks real good for her age!!

I want to wish every one a happy Thanksgiving!!! Enjoy your meal and your family even if your family is small. Love is the only thing that is important!!!

Love coming your way, Bambi & Fern

Family Left

This is my oldest son
My son David and his wife Cathy
The Grand Canyon!! They just came back from a trip to the grand Canyon. They loved it- who wouldn't!!!
They spent the week-end and the visit was really great. We went out to dinner Friday night. We spent 3 hours doing that!! Saturday we had our Thanksgiving dinner. We had it out in the yard. It was such a beautiful day. We all helped so it didn't turn out to be too much work.
They loved the garden and of all the time that they have been here while we have had the garden this was the first time they really looked at it. They went home with a stevia plant and were so happy we gave them a natural sweetener plant!!! They need to get off sugar!!! That plant has helped us do just that!! We have been off sugar for a year next February.
It was a very enjoyable week-end.

Hi Blog friends, Bambi went to the vets yesterday at 5:30 PM. The vet took her bandage and stitches off and out!!!! He said she had done excellent. The womb was in great shape and now I had to really watch her and keep her from scratching it!!

Kim from Golden Pines, will you please email me so I can have a email address for you??

The picture above was taken when I had the big garden going and I spent 6 hours a day working in that garden!!!

The picture above that one is Bruce!! My German Shepherd Dog!!! The only puppy I have ever had from 6 weeks now!! I cried for a solid month after losing him.

Mistaya, I tried what you said to do and I must have a different soft wear then you. I got Tom to check it out and he said the same thing. Thank you so much for trying to help. I have a 98 computer and I have a lot of things that are different then the newer computers!!

Tuesday Nov 16 2010

Today is a rainy day, thank the Lord!!!! We need it so badly!! I have a lot of new followers that have not seen Joker and Amanda. Of course the top pic is cute Bambi. Than the Whippet I rescued Amanda. What a wonderful girl she was!!! I loved every minute with her!!! We were together 6 years before kidney failure took her. If only I had known what I know now!! Then Joker!!!! He was so special!! I rescued him from death. He was 5 and a half and the people were ready to kill him b/c he was not a good breed dog!!! He had never been in a house in his life when he walked into ours. He was wonderful. He never tour anything up and only messed in the house
the first minute he walked in the house. I took that as nerves. He never did again!!!
I loved every minutes with him too!! Cancer and we found out his kidney was going bad too just at the very end. I am working very hard so that is not what takes Bambi!!!

Love coming your way, Bambi & Fern

My New time in Blog land

Blogger has been so bad the last 4 weeks!! I have been to your blogs and read them and tried to comment and the error page comes up or the disconnect page comes up and my Internet provider is still connected!!!! There is nothing that I know to do about it !!! I just keep trying until I give up!! I can spend hours loading a blog and then hours trying to leave a comment and I really don't have that much time to spend on the computer!! I am getting nothing done around the house. So I have come to a decision, I am going to blog some days without pictures and some days with. I will try to blog everyday, at least say something to you. I will not be leaving comments but will try to get to read all your blogs if blogger will load them!!!!!!! And that is a big IF !!!! I want to stay close to you!! I miss you when we don't talk. So if you want me to talk to you and we have never talked through email leave an email address. That is the way we will talk in the future.
Lola and Franklin I have been to your blog a least 5 times and not been able to leave a comment. I have missed you so much!!! So sorry Blog Mom hurt her foot and leg!!!! I hope she will heal fast!!! Lola I don't have an email address for you so I have to do it this way.

Love coming your way, Bambi & Fern

Bambi went to the vets yesterday

Bambi went to the vets yesterday at 5:30 EST. Right at dinner time!! It messed up dinner time that is for sure!!! It was worth it tho, the vets said she is doing fantastic!!! That I am doing very good at keeping her from scratching!! We passed this test, now we have another one to pass!! She gos back to have her stitches out next Tuesday!! She is such a good dog.
I have been having lots of problems on blogger!! Have you had problem with blogger????
It has been taking so long to load blogs! SO LONG!!!!
It has been very hard to leave comments on people's blog!!!
Sometimes I can't ever get on my blog!! Getting high speed is not an option now!! Tom just had surgery out of pocket, meaning we paid cash for it!! The business is very slow!! Tom has not been making a living for a long while. We are living on savings. Tom is not up to doing heavy work just after hernia surgery!! So no high speed!! What am I going to do????? I really want you to answer me please. I could just blog and not answer comments. I could stop blogging altogether. Just talk to everyone on Facebook. What am I going to do???????????

Bambi's Surgery

Hey dear friends!!! Last Thursday Bambi's right ear started to swell up!! During the day it got larger and larger. I called the vets and he said to bring her in. Of course I couldn't do that b/c I don't have anything to drive here. So Friday morning Tom took Bambi in to have surgery on her right ear. The vets had to drain the fluid from her ear. She had a Hematoma. A blood vassal had burst filling her ear with blood. She came through just fine!! Thank the Lord!!! She has to go back to the vets next Thursday.
I am sorry I have not gotten to all of you that had commented on my last blog yet. It has been a little busy around here this week-end!! Bambi can not be out of sight. When you're not looking, she will scratch her ear. So I have to have eyes on her all the time except when she is sleeping!!
So I will be very busy for a few days!!! Well probably more than a few days!!LOL
Love coming your way, Bambi & Fern

Rain in November

Hi blogger's today the 4th day of November it has rained some and it is suppose to rain more.
I surely hope it does b//c we had 1 inch in September and 2 tenths of an inch in October---- period!!!! We desperately need rain!!!!! We could use several inches of rain!!! The garden has
suffered so much with the lack of rain!!! The tomatoes are just about done!! I brought in only 4 this AM.
I am surprised that I have been to blogs and told them of their a award and they haven't come to get it. Maybe there are not at home!!
I love you all my friends!!!
Bambi & Fern
