We have our fall garden in the ground now and are looking forward to the yield it brings with time and patience. We enjoyed going to the Master Gardeners show and picking out a couple of plants to go in the yard. It was a cloudy day but we got there early and made our pick of plants. I liked the unusual black elephant ear, as well as some other plants. Cute Veggies!master gardner plant sale 2014 2 veggies

New adventures in Life and Love and Gardening. We are to embark on our newest adventure family vacation with our son’s family and daughters family. I am not in the best optimal health shape currently but as we know a health crisis can come and knock your socks off and change your world without you realizing it until later. I am grateful to be on the road to recovery, but it is and has been a long and hard road.  Health is Wealth is an understatement. I found out today that a person I met through an online support cancer group who is only in her 40s is going into hospice care now. It breaks my heart for her lovely family, as we talked via email and we were always so supportive of each other. She is a lovely person and exudes love all around. Life as you know can change on a dime or an instant it doesn’t matter how pretty you are or how much money you have or make, or what church or synagogue you belong to or what political party you are, it doesn’t matter a bit and it makes you realize and become mindful of what is important. You change your priorities and decide on what is important enough to react to expend energy.  The things that you may have found time for before you have no use for them now as they have served its purpose. When you have less time to waste as we all do when we age, you choose kindness over righteousness any day. If we all took time to look into each other eyes with gratitude I think our world would be more peaceful. We all have a time limit so be careful what you spend your time on. Time and health are priceless.

We all have a number that will be up we just never know when it will be our time, only out maker knows for sure. You look at loved ones, family and friends with much gratitude. Life as you know changes forever. Transition to life and experiencing every moment there is with your loved ones in daily gratitude practiced is important and always available if you do it daily in mediation or in prayer you live in that moment. We aren’t given this life forever. When a health crisis that is life altering experience happens to find you, you will truly find out who the supportive ones are. You realize when you have something like this come into your own family that nothing is more important than Love only love and time filled with gratitude for your loved ones that the little things are the big things and there is no time for childish behavior or hatred or jealousy

My avocado trees that I planted from seed I am pleased to say are doing well.  I have a couple in pots and some I have planted in the ground already.

I was excited to see that my lemon trees to the left of photo that I grew from seed will be ready to go in the ground soon.  Love the earth and planting it will love you back.  avocado

If you see or feel a lump bump or bruise that isn’t supposed to be there please go to your doctor and get it checked out. With Oral Cancer there are no symptoms until sometimes it is too late. So please make sure when you get your dentist checkup have them do the six step screening process.

I get by with a little help from my friends
