Now, I read this:
AUSTIN -- With the price tag of providing care for more than 400 children seized last month from a polygamist ranch in West Texas expected to reach the tens of millions of dollars, a legislative panel suggested Tuesday that the state explore garnisheeing the religious organization's assets to recoup the costs.
"That compound didn't grow out of fairy dust," Sen. Robert Deuell, R-Greenville, said after a Senate Finance Committee hearing in which he urged state health officials to determine whether members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, or even the sect as a whole, should be held responsible for the cost of care. "Why should we be footing the bill when they've got assets?"
Really are they serious? It takes alot to shock me these days, but I must say I am shocked. You can read the rest of the article here.

- a variety of tomatoes
- bell peppers
- acorn squash
- yellow squash
- green beans
- red onions
- yellow onions
I had black eyed peas and black beans growing but I had to pull them out because apparently they attract some pretty fears bugs. I will grow them later in a plot by themselves. We should have yellow squash abound in about 10 days. Let me tell ya gardening is hard work. I know I keep saying that, but its true. What I realized is we have become a people who stand or sit in most everything we do. Squatting and being bent over is a whole other set of muscles. I come in after an hour of working out there and I am so sore. I know Here's a few pics, its hard to get the whole garden in so its just portions.
I saw this tee shirt on a website that sells maternity shirts with sayings. I loved this one! Its kinda a running joke between my two oldest and myself. In an episode of SpongeBob they are visiting Sandy for the first time in her waterless bubble and while they are sitting in there trying to ignore the fact that they needed water, Spongebob says "we don't need water, waters for sissies" trust me it was funny. So when I saw this shirt it cracked me up.

This day can only keep getting better, yes indeed!!!
Edited 30 minutes later:
So, hubby just called to let me know that he got a ticket this morning because our son who was going to work with him today was wearing the shoulder part of the seatbelt behind his back and for not having insurance (which we have, I just hadnt given him the new card yet, the old card was only about 10 days expired) So he assentially just got a ticket for not having insurnace that we have and for my son not wearing a seatbelt that he had on?
Its all uphill from here, right?

We have squash and zuchinni peeking out! I love watching things grow!
This was a coy pond that you can burry in your yard and put fish in, my neighbor gave it to me when she moved. I turned it into a lettuce container garden. In a few weeks we should have lots of fresh lettuce at the table.

"The brain will continue to grow at an amazing rate and nearly a quarter of a million new neurons are produced every minute! The embryonic heart is completely developed."
Miraculous? Why yes indeed!

This has to be the hardest part for me the first 3 months. It seems that without much effort life can come to a grinding halt during this time. I have to force myself to even walk across a room sometimes. Along with the icks my brain shuts down...as I sit here my eyes wish they could shut tight not to open again for 3 more weeks.
I know I'm pouting, I have to pout to keep from falling asleep though ;-) Sorry for being so sporadic in my blogging lately. I am spending quite a bit of time in the garden....they are alot of work, aren't they? Things are growing well, so its worth all the work!
Its getting pretty warm here, it was 98 two days ago....which is the reason I am sitting here typing this out. This is the only room with the air on today (trying to save money) so I am in here cooling down, wishing Franky hadn't torn up the couch that used to be in here, now that would be lovely a nap on a cushy couch right in front of the air. Ahhh......see pleasantries, I found some!

Cause I can’t move without You.
I won’t leave you alone, You say.
It will be ok.
Its not all roses and cherry pie, is it? Often life requires that you step out of yourself completely and just let Him pull you through.
........my heals can sometimes leave deep trenches in the sand.
I close my eyes and sing ...."I wont leave you alone, You say.......
......it will be OK......
.....Great is Your glory as You go before me!

The garden has really grown this past week. We have added (yes even while I was feverish I was out gardening) 5 more rows of veges. If the birds will leave it alone we should have a great harvest.
I finally figured out the problem with my camera software and can now upload pictures once again. So I'll share a few now.
9 chickens + 7 days = 43 eggs! They've been busy girls.
I had to take this picture the other day, aren't those boys cute!
My new favorite thing, 10 grain cereal.
170 pounds and he still has to sleep with a stuffed animal.
