A Message from Jill (Alexis Mom)

To all donors and artists,

Thank you so much for your support and donations for Seattle Children's Neuroblastoma research.
Neuroblastoma is an awful disease with the survival rate being only 20%, your dollars and donations will go to help finding a cure for this horrific disease. Our little Alexis has been fighting thru this battle since she was 11 weeks old. She is now "stable" with disease only on her liver. We will be going back in for a CAT scan on Monday to confirm the disease is still stable.

Thank you for doing this in honor of our little sweetie. God bless you!- Jill (Alexis's mommy)

I've decided to share some pretty photos I have taken from my gardens, and some old 1800's grave stones that date back to the Revolutionary War that happens to be part of our land which resides right next door to us.
They make wonderful neighbors, some stones have fallen over the years, and are in the process of being fixed.
Hope you enjoy, many photos to share..

SWEET WILLIAMS IN MY ROCK GARDEN. THESE ARE WONDERFUL FLOWERS.
THE BLOOMS LAST FOR A VERY LONG. LONG TIME, THEY ALSO RE-SEAD THEMSHEVLES AND ARE HARDY IN CLIMATES WITH WINTERS.ONE OF MY FAVS...



_________________________________________________________________





WELL, HERE WE HAVE RED ROSES, EVERY HIGH BREED I PAYED GOOD MONEY FOR, BLOOMED GREAT THE FIRST YEAR IN BEAUTIFUL COLORS OF WHITE, PEACH,YELLOW, AND MAUVE NO REDS.



NOW THAT THE BUSHES HAVE RETURNED BACK TO THE NATURAL COLOR THEY WERE BEFORE THEY HAD ANOTHER ROSE GRAFTED ON (HIGH BREED, YEAH THEY CAN KEEP THEM)TO THEM , I HAVE ALL RED ROSE BUSHES, 12 TO BE EXACT..

BUT, I GUESS THEY ARE STILL PRETTY, JUST NOT WHAT I PAYED FOR.LIVE AND LEARN!
______________________________________________________________

4TH YEAR FOR OUR GREEN GAGE PLUM TREE.

REQUIRES LOTS OF WATER, BIT WORTH THE WATER TRIPS.

THE TREE IS LOADED WITH PLUMS EVERY YEAR, AND MAKES WONDERFUL JAM PRESERVES.
_______________________________________________________________

ANOTHER PLUM TREE, ALSO PART OF THE GREEN GAGE FAMILY.

WONDERFUL FRUIT, REQUIRES A LITTLE LESS WATER.
___________________________________________________________________


RED CURRANT BUSH. PAUL LOVES THE JAM I MAKE FROM THIS LITTLE BUSH.
THEY TURN BRIGHT RED, ALMOST LIKE A SNAKE BERRY.
________________________________________________________________


THIS RED ROSE BUSH IS VERY, VERY OLD.
PAULS FATHER HAD THIS BUSH PLANTED OUTSIDE OF THE BARN WHILE PAUL WAS GROWING UP.
THE 500 ACRES OF FARM LAND AND HOUSE STARTED OUT BY BEING PAULS GRANDPARENTS, THEN ON TO HIS FATHER WHICH THIS ROSE BUSH HAD BEEN THERE THROUGH IT ALL.
WE THINK IT IS CLOSE TO BEING 100 YEARS OLD.
WHEN PAULS MOM PASSED 2 YEARS AGO, WE TOOK A PIECE OF IT FROM HIS FAMILY HOME (WHICH IS NOW HIS BROTHERS, NEXT DOOR TO US) AND PLANTED IT HERE ON OUR LAND.
TWO YEARS LATER IT IS GROWING STRONG AND HOPEFULLY WILL BE HERE FOR OUR GRANDCHILDREN TO ENJOY.
_________________________________________________________________


ROCK GARDEN, NEW GUINEA IMPATIENS, LOVE THE COLOR.
__________________________________________________________________

PINK GERANIUM IN THE ROCK GARDEN..
THE WHITE FLORAL VINE, NOT SURE WHAT IT IS NO TAG CAME WITH IT.
______________________________________________________________


MY GARDEN SPOT, NOT LOOKING LIKE MUCH YET, BUT UNDER THAT PLASTIC WE HAVE THINGS GROWING...
TOMATOES, CUCUMBERS,EGGPLANT, MELONS, CARROTS, AND PUMPKINS.
LOTS OF FALL CANNING TO BE HAD...
__________________________________________________________________


MELONS TRYING TO GROW, WE HAVE RABBITS AND WOODCHUCKS THAT HAVE DIFFERENT IDEALS..
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


STRAIGHT EIGHT CUCUMBERS JUST PEEKING THROUGH THE GROUND.
THEY MAKE GREAT CANNING PICKLES.
___________________________________________________________________

THIS IS MY FIRST YEAR TRYING THIS BRAND OF TOMATOES.
I WAS TOLD THEY MAKES EXCELLENT CANNED SAUCE, SO WE WILL SEE.
VARIEGATED TOMATOES.THEY ARE A VERY PRETTY PLANT.
WE ALSO PLANTED OUR STANDARD BIG BOY, AND PLUM TOMATOES FOR A BACK-UP..
___________________________________________________________________

THIS BEAUTY IS A RED CARDINAL WEIHELA, THIS IS ITS 5TH YEAR AND IS AMAZING.
THIS IS NOT THE BEST PHOTO, BUT IF YOU WANT A BEAUTY THAT GROWS EACH YEAR STRONGER THEN THE ONE BEFORE THIS IS YOUR BUSH.
I BRING OUT MY MORNING COFFEE AND WALK OUT JUST TO SEE HOW MANY MORE BLOOMS HAVE OPENED. THIS PHOTO IS ONLY A VERY SMALL SECTION OF THE BUSH, IT IS HUGE AND FULL OF RED BLOOMS, AND YES THE CARDINALS VISIT ALONG WITH HUMMING BIRDS.
___________________________________________________________________


A SIDE SHOT OF OUR FRUIT TREE SPOT, WITH THE 62 COMET IN THE BACKGROUND.
NO THAT IS NOT AN OUT HOUSE IN THE BACK..LOL.. IT IS A SMOKE HOUSE FOR THE HAM, AND BACON.
NOT MANY PIGS SEE THAT SMOKE HOUSE, ONLY THE REAL NASTY ONES. FEW AND FAR BETWEEN..
__________________________________________________________________
THE CEMETERY NEXT TO OUR HOME.
THE STONES DATE BACK TO THE EARLY 1800'S REVOLUTIONARY PERIOD.
PETER DUNKEL FOUGHT IN THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR.
THIS FARM LAND WAS DUNKEL LAND BACK THEN.
THERE IS ONLY ONE RELATIVE OF THE DUNKELS THAT COMES TO KEEP THE CEMETERY MOWED (PAUL ALSO KEEPS IT TRIMMED) HE IS IN THE PROCESS OF STANDING BACK UP THE FALLEN STONES.
PAUL TOLD HIM IF HE KEEPS THE CEMETERY UP FOR 5 YEARS HE WILL SIGN THAT PIECE OF PROPERTY BACK OVER TO THE FAMILY.
________________________________________________________________

DIED IN 1816, CANT REALLY READ MUCH OF IT, OTHER THEN THE DATE.
___________________________________________________________________

BORN 1768 AND PASSED IN 1812.
BACK IN THOSE DAYS, THEY LISTED THE YEARS, MONTH, AND DAYS YOU WERE ALIVE. THIS STONE HAS HELD UP WELL.
___________________________________________________________________
THIS IS THE WIVE OF PETER DUNKEL, SHE PASSED IN 182?.
THIS STONE IS ONE THAT HAS FALLEN, AND BEEN PICKED BACK UP.
___________________________________________________________________


MORNING, LOOKING OUT THE SIDE OF MY YARD.
I LOVE THE COUNTRY....
ORGANIC CORN FIELD....
___________________________________________________________________

MY OLD MAN DUKE!!
PAUL BROUGHT HIM HOME FOR ME WHEN HE WAS 6 WEEKS OLD, I FIRST THOUGHT HE WAS A BUNNY, HE WAS SO SMALL AND ADORABLE..
NOW HE IS BLIND IN ONE EYE AND IS ALMOST TEN...
STILL A GOOD BOY!___________________________________________________________________


LAST BUT NOT LEAST, MY SMILING BABY AMIGO.
HE IS ALMOST 2, MY GIRLS GAVE HIM TO ME FOR A BIRTHDAY GIFT WHEN HE WAS AGIN 6 WEEKS.

Time to Get Back In Shape!!!



Well, After a trip to my Local E.R. and a Visit with my Doc. today, I have decided I need to get into shape before Summers End!
First to go is the Cigarettes, BAD, NASTY, ADDICTIVE, AND A KILLER!.
I was very Surprised at the Stats of Heroin, Crystal Meth, and Alcohol related deaths per year verse's Cigarette related deaths.
In the US. Cigarette related deaths are in the 400,000 ALMOST DOUBLE FROM THE OTHERS.
So I am going to try very hard to stop.
Morning is my roughest, as soon as my feet hit the floor I start.
Tomorrow morning I am starting my day by Walking as soon as my feet hit the floor, I will lace-up my sneakers and hit the road.
I am thinking the fresh morning air will make me feel refreshed enough to stay away from inhaling NASTY Smoke.

I stopped in at my Local Gym after the Doctors and signed up for a 3 day a week fitness plan.
Hopefully by Summers end I will have lost my needed 50lbs, and be back in shape again.
I am so amazed how quickly weight has come on.
Being one of the lucky ones, I really have never had to battle my weight.
Now 40 and comfortable with my life, I have gone from a size 7 to a 14.
Not like high school when I would never have let myself gain weight.
I have been comfortable in my shell, so have not had any weight concerns until my Blood Pressure has gone completely out of control and I am heading for a Stroke at 40..
It is now time to WAKE-UP and get Heathly.

You would think with Paul having his HEart Attack In Dec. I would have been more aware of my own health.
I guess sometimes we get caught up in helping others, and forget to help ourselves.
Well, Wish me luck!!
NO SMOKING AND NO CHOCOLATE!! OH MY WILL I SURVIVE?

WELL ON A GOOD NOTE!
FINALLY!!!! ART CLASS FOR ADULTS IS BEING OFFERED IN THIS SMALL COMMUNITY.
So Myself along with a few other Friends will be starting a real art gallery class on painting humans...YAY I am so excited!
I Will bring tips back with me to keep you all posted.
This Guy who is teaching is amazing, his work is so life like.
Our first painting will be of a real Ballerina. I may share with you , we will see...LOL..

NEW BLOGGER!
RUG MAKER JOY IS NEW , and is making her way around.
Joy is a friend and Neighbor who makes Beautiful Rugs out of Recycled Rags.
Stop by and say Hello.
Check out her Etsy Shop for a large selections of her Rugs...
Many Hugs to you all!

The snowman is sculpted from paperclay, and stands 5 1/2 inches tall. His arms are filled with hearts in assorted patterns which are dusted lightly with glitter. His scarf wraps around his neck and trails down his back. The piece is sealed with a varnish for protection, and signed by me.The containers are sculpted with paperclay over cylinders for maximum strength. They are all 3 1/2 inches in diameter, in graduated heights from 2 1/2 inches to 5 inches, excluding the ornamentation. The three little boxes have soft lime green lids, and the sides are antiqued to give an aged, stucco effect. The sculptings on the lids show life's progression, from nest with eggs, to mama sitting on the eggs, to five baby birds all hatched out. The containers are sealed with varnish and signed by me.
