I attended my first class this past Tuesday. It was fabulous. The employees are fantastic and the coordinator of the volunteer program is a wonderful woman. She actually resides on the property and has first hand knowledge of everything. I kept thinking to myself, “Is this a dream, am I really here.” I cannot begin to explain how exquisite this place is. There is a lot of work ahead of everyone as the winter did wreak havoc on the gardens, so everything must be tended to and the process begins. I will post the website so you all can take a look. Wish me luck in this venture and my next class is Tuesday.
Have a wonderful weekend and much peace! XO
I start my first garden training class on Tuesday, April 13. Originally I signed up for an e-mail newsletter regarding a beautiful farm and horticulture center that is located not far from my home. As it turned out, they have a volunteer program that runs the gamut...from working with perennials to pond gardening to care of tropicals, etc..there are regular tours of the property and our training encompasses everything. My excitement level is beyond words right now as this has been a dream of mine for a long time and now it is coming to fruition. Wish me luck as I take on this challenge and learn as much as I can..which of course, I will share with all here.
HUGS & KISSES
Want to share a funny tale..
Yesterday I was in The Corner Bakery purchasing some baked goods. A very young sweet girl proceeded to wait on me. As I was picking out my goodies, a very obnoxious woman butted next to me yelling out for a large cup, right next to her was an older man screaming that he did not receive his second sandwich as only one was placed in the bag..now I am in the middle of giving my order to this poor girl and she is being pulled in every direction...Well, being the direct and quite forceful person I am at times, I noticed another young woman doing absolutely nothing.
I immediately halted all conversation and politely asked the girl who had nothing to do to wait on me and told the distressed girl to continue waiting on the rude twosome..now through all of this chaos, I ended up rejoicing as I felt accomplished, if you knew me when I was young, I would have just stood there and waited and waited.
I had everybody apologizing to me!..God, I love being Fab40!
Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:
When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure Ecstasy.
Stretch before rising.
Run, romp, and play daily.
Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
When you‘re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
Never pretend to be something you‘re not.
If what you want lies buried,
dig until you find it.
When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently.
ENJOY EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY!
Hurt dog limps into New Mexico ER
German shepherd mix finds his way to a hospital after injury
FARMINGTON, N.M. - The patient was only slightly injured when he limped into a hospital in the northwest New Mexico city of Farmington.
The only problem was, he was a dog.
When the automatic doors at San Juan Regional Medical Center’s emergency room slid open Saturday night, the pooch walked in, blood on his nose and paw, and a puncture hole in one leg.
Animal control officer Robin Loev (LOHV) responded to a call from the hospital and suspects the puncture wound was from the bite of another dog.
Loev says the German shepherd mix appeared to be intelligent and calm — and knew enough to go to the right place.
The animal was taken to the Farmington Animal Shelter and claimed by its owner.
Our son had his gastro appt. this past week, he had a scope done and so far, nothing is conclusive..so medication for a while and monitoring is all we can do, will re-check with the doctor within a month..he has changed his diet a bit (luckily, he did eat well), and trying to avoid certain stress in his life.
