I know we've done this before. Maybe it was last year about this time. Maybe its the perfect weekend activity for Fall. we are digging up our AAC garden. We pulling up the weeds and the overgrown lavendar and the mature tomato plants. We're going to keep the stuff we want to keep and use. You know dry the sweet lavendar and harvest seeds from the old tomatoes.

Am I being too figurative? I can't really help it. Back to it.

We have to plow the field so it can winter over. We bringing in bales of hay to protect our fertile soil. Lord knows we've had a fresh load of fertilizer dumped into our AAC garden. (SC, forgive the expression). Fertilizer is good for a garden, in doses. It stinks like crap for a bit, so we are bringing in some sweet smelling hay to cover it up and let it settle and enrich our soil.

Ok. I need to dig a bit, then I'm going to sing the praises of fertilizer. Then we are having s'mores.

Could someone start a warm fire? For fuel for our fire, share one way you have grown through your posting on this board.

I am OK with being alone. I am somewhat OK with loneliness. I am moving towards a more forgiving spirit and I had people who supported me in the two major losses of my life.

Awesome thread, Bonni! My growth through this board is learning to take what I need and to leave the rest. Fighting for what matters by choosing my battles. To take life with a grain a salt, and a splash of pepper when needed. And only adding fuel to the fire, when fire is desired!! 😉

Buck says hi!!

Hi Bonni!!! I've been here on and off, but only lurking.

I have 3 grown girls, and now a grandson by one twin, and another grandchild on the way by the other twin.

How have YOU beer? I'm so glad to see you here and to know there's always room in the stable!!

The fire is looking good!! 🙂

Good grief, some things never change! 😉

Dear Jenni,
I'm actually doing pretty well. I've been lurking more lately because my life has been so busy, but today I really felt like a weekend thread was in order. Coming here has really helped me think some things through. I'm not fixed or anything, just maybe a little calmer.

Wow, a grandson! and a baby on the way. what a handful.

bonni

ps I pulled out the freshest bale of hay for Buck before it could go on the field. There are some carrots and sugar cubes too.

Oh my gawd - Jenni!! This is so cool. I too haven't been on here in a while - (well since last weekend! but before that...) So good to know you're still around.

MamaC brought the dump truck...think she means business!

Jenni- How old are your twins now? I am trying to remember what was going on back then. I think you had taken in one of their friends??? Gosh that was a long time ago.

The twins are 21, my youngest is 20, and I'm...41!! The twins and my youngest are just a year and 4 days apart, all in the same week in November. So they're really more like triplets! (and one may wonder why I have a imaginary horse! LOL...)

Thank God for AAC!! 😉

Oh yeah, we did take in one of their friends at one time. Unfortunately, this friend died in a tragic car accident. I think that was close to the last time I posted here. THAT was hard, as this girl became like one of my own.

Anyway, I don't want to be a thread-jacker here, so I think I'll grab another s'more!!

Ooops!! That's the 2nd time I've hear that expression here since I've been back. Thread-jacker..seems I've done this a couple of times and didn't mean to. Sorry Bonni!!

I will be in my other thread, if you'd like to chat more. Hope to see you there. 🙂

Have a great day everyone 🙂

Soul, I wouldn't worry about it. I was referring more to myself, as I tend to jump trail pretty easily! 😉 Stick around for more s'mores! 🙂
