My Desk in the Bathroom

Tomorrow is my last day at Blue Cross Blue Shield and one of our trainers decided to take everything out of my office and move it all to the bathroom.
Here are some pictures of my new office...
They even put the recycle bin in their because they know I love to recycle.

For the pranksters that are reading is a very good idea.

Thank you Alicia, this is a memory I will never forget.

The Veg-Table's

Shannon did a post about her plantings of onions and garlic and I figured I would do the same. I talked about it in this post titled 'Yesterday's Piddlings and This Weekends Fun' and this post also. This is what I harvested Wednesday, Holy Cow was my thought when I had to put them down because my arms could not hold anymore.
These are my banana peppers

and some okra that I planted just for my sister. I sure hope it ships well!

These are one of my bell pepper plants. They were so cute when they were the size of a golf ball, I wanted to just stare at their cuteness.

Lastly, my first sightings of summer squash.

The Veg-Table Garden

This man really has my heart or I really have his when I bring in a cucumber from the garden and suggest that we have it for dinner and then when I come back in for dinner he shows me a plate of sliced cucumbers in the shape of a heart, I know he is a sweet one.

In this 4'x8' bed I have pickling cucumbers, green beans, summer squash, bell peppers, radishes, parsley, lettuce (that is still hanging on even though it is in the 90's), basil, mint and some flowers to add another color besides green and to scare some of the bad bugs off.

In this bed (same size) I have pickling cucumbers, regular cucumbers, zucchini, eggplants, bell peppers, banana peppers, okra, basil, mint, spearmint, parsley, radishes, flowers and another herb I can't figure out what it is. (Please check back next week, I will post more details about this mystery herd to see if blog land can figure out what it is for me.)

This last bed is pretty empty, half of it was used for onions which I just harvested 90% of them this week and the other half is empty besides a volunteer tomato plant that is growing back from last year. Do you have any suggestions what I should fill this box up with? Pumpkins or more squash and zucchini.

Now we have my tomatoes, I have five different variety's and know that at least one of them is a cherry type. Yes, the first two are a little sick. I could not get the lids off of them to allow for more water to get to them. But this picture is after two days with the lids off and a few good drinks of vitamin water. Before I took the lids off I was scared I might not have enough to can this year. And, I just realized I deleted the photo but you can see them in the picture below if I don't delete it before I hit 'publish post'.
This is a picture of my veg-table garden area as of today.

Thank you for viewing my blog!!

Bible vs Cell Phone

Ever wonder what would happen if we treated our Bible like we treat our cell phone?
What if we carried it around in our purses or pockets?
What if we flipped through it several time a day?
What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it?
What if we used it to receive messages from the text?
What if we treated it like we couldn't live without it?
What if we gave it to Kids as gifts?
What if we used it when we traveled?
What if we used it in case of emergency?
This is something to make you go....hmm...where is my Bible?
And no dropped calls!
Unlike our cell phone, we don't have to worry about our Bible being disconnected because Jesus already paid the bill.
Makes you stop and think 'where are my priorities'?
When Jesus died for us, he was thinking of you!

Mr. Rooster is GONE

Mr. Rooster all ready to go. (yes the container is a bit small for him, but the person who gets him, takes it with them and this was all we had to spare)
My dads roosters and ours ready for the ride to the auction.
Another view of them.

About three weeks ago Keith went in the chicken coop you know to fill their water up, feed them and gather the eggs and once again Mr. Rooster attacked.
Not only did he try to be the boss but he jumped up on Keith's chest and put his spurs on him. Luckily for the rooster my dad, sister and I were going to a farm auction that Friday and had planned on taking him to sale. So Keith bit his tongue and didn't harm him.
We got a whopping $5 for him!!!

Do you have a mean rooster or animal?
