Happy 2009 everyone!

2009 has started out fairly well. My daughter and her cousin had a ball at the beach and just "hanging out". No Chuck E. Cheese, which didn't bother us at all. It was fun to see him, his mom and his "me-mom" as he calls his grandmother. They leave today to go back to North Carolina, we probably won't see them again until June. We were busy at work last week as more seasonal visitors have started to arrive for winter. The traffic has increased and so has my stress level just a bit. :)

My tomato seedlings aren't doing very well now. They looked like they were off to a good start, I don't know what happened to them. The seeds are a couple years old but haven't germinated as nicely as I was anticipating. The cucumber plants are fantastic; I have planted Lemon cucumbers, Poinsett 76, and Picklebush, which is supposed to be an excellent pickling cuke. We shall see in a couple of months when I try my hand at making pickles again. It's been about 12 years since I canned anything so I think a little refresher course will be necessary. I am getting some nice lettuce from my plantings, it is time to sow some more this week. I ordered 4 inch plastic pots from, they shouldn't take too long to ship and I can't wait to get them. Today I am sending out soap to a friend in Nashville and shipping a belated holiday box to my mom. If you send holiday gifts late three years in a row does it become a tradition? I heard a comment/quote on the radio Friday morning that I liked quite a bit - "Stop walking through the motions of your life and start living your life." Doesn't that sound like a good way to start 2009?
